Colorado Wakeboard Contests & Events – Mile High Wakeboarding™


It’s no secret that Mile High Wakeboarding™ has been host to some amazing wakeboard contests and events over the past few summers! Our boat contests have repeatedly hit capacity, setting new records each year, and with the new crop of young shredders slashing it up on the cable systems, who knows what the future will bring. This fresh, new bunch of all-around rippers are good at everything from the boat to features to air tricks!

Mile High Wakeboarding™ contests are friendly in competition and involve other activities such as visits, demos and autograph sessions from your favorite professional wakeboarders, spectator games, and of course, awesome prizes for athletes that everyone has come to expect and enjoy.

General Contest Guidelines

•Judging for each division is based on overall impression (WWA Criteria). This is a combination of style, technical difficulty, variety, standing up the run, execution, and amplitude. Advanced, Expert, and Outlaw divisions receive a small bonus for the Best Trick and Best Double Up/Air on the Cable and for completing the “bonus trick” to be determined at each event. (Practice your switch toeside!)

•Women, Masters, and Groms may compete in both their respective division, and another division if they choose to. Registration, entry fees, and points will be calculated separately.

•Riders are allowed two (2) falls in a cable contest, and one (1) fall in a boat contest. A rider’s contest run is over on a third (3rd) fall in a cable contest, or the second (2nd) fall in a boat contest. Advanced, Expert, and Outlaw riders are eligible to compete in the double up contest (when space and time permits).

•All riders should have their own rope and handle ready to go, or use the boat/cable rope and handle. Advanced, Expert, and Outlaw divisions will need their own rope (for boat) regardless.

•MHW has allowed check-in and start times to be flexible so you don’t have to sit at the event all day – and there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Please note the event schedule at each contest stop throughout the series. MHW has created the current schedule based on participation at the last contest, and will keep it updated as needed, or as additional participation requires.

•Each division is limited to a maximum of 12 riders based on the order that MHW receives their registration. Sorry, no exceptions. Most divisions will sell out.

•MHW will post results through social media throughout the day (for 1st -3rd) and award prizes after the contest has concluded.

•All riders are welcome to catch a $10 demo pull on the cable or $25 demo pull behind the actual tournament boat/cable on the Friday prior to each contest stop. This will allow you to become familiar with the lake, tow boat/cable, and boat wake if applicable. Simply show up the Friday prior to an event, at the select location at time, and sign up for a tow. We’ll be there.

•Every win, place, and contest entry will accumulate and earn a rider points towards the Series Championship. (In season’s where we host 3 or more events.)

•In a year where MHW hosts 3 or more contests, each rider will have their lowest score dropped. In this case, if a rider misses an event or has an off day, it will not be detrimental to their overall standings.

Other Contest Details

•It is a smart idea to bring chairs, shade, and sunscreen, as you will need them – and feel free to set up under any tents we have set up.
•Small and or friendly dogs are always welcome (please clean up after your pet or we won’t be able to allow this in the future).

•The rider traveling the furthest distance (based on home address or your plane ticket) to each stop of the contest series will be awarded a “sponsored” entry into that contest and a free t-shirt. This rider will be announced the day of the event and all registration costs will be refunded to them on the spot. This is MHW’s way of saying thank you for making the effort to attend!

•In the event of poor weather, MHW will bump the contest to the next morning or if that option is not available to us, we will entertain you until it passes over. We’ll do our best to keep everyone out of the sun and rain and keep it fun! The dates we have picked are usually pretty great for weather but you never know.

•There will not be any room for additional boats on the lake(s).

•The tournament will start exactly on time and we will do our best to keep it moving as quickly and efficiently as possible.

•All contest riders receive a MHW contest T-shirt. (Series Champions may receive a special T-shirt.)

•Contest riders should bring their own board, life vest, and gear but plan ahead with us if you will need equipment.

•We have developed these contests to be family-friendly. Please pick up after yourself, behave yourself, do not park in areas that block others, and have courtesy and respect for others around you, as well as the lake property. Note local drinking laws within parks and/or cities. Please note that any music played should be PG rated and radio friendly. Help us out and don’t make us be the bad guys.

•MHW can always use photographers and other volunteers at each contest/event. If you are personable and can snap a photo, or would like to help with other activities, let us know. We fund these events entirely on our own so we’ll take all the help we can get!

•Lastly, we conduct these events just for you! If you have constructive feedback and would like your voice to be heard, let us know your suggestions.
