With a mission to share the passion for the activity of towed water sports worldwide, the second annual #PassTheHandle day has been set for July 26, 2015.
Founded by wakeboarding and water ski legend, Zane Schwenk, this day encourages people to get out on the water and teach new people how to ride, ski, surf or anything else to experience the exhilarating feeling of being towed across the water. “The thrill of standing on the water is one of my first memories, and we want to pass that life-changing experience on to those who’ve never had the opportunity,” Schwenk said. “With the help of Shaun Murray, we started brainstorming about how we can get more people on the water to help grow the sport. And the help of WSIA, Pass The Handle was born. Now, we have the chance to responsibly teach and ensure the water sports lifestyle we love stays strong and present for the future generations to come.”
Backed by the WSIA and the entire industry, #PassTheHandle day will grow the participant levels in towed watersports by teaching people the right way to have fun and be safe on the water. After a successful launch in 2014, Schwenk is also appreciative of the year-round support of the #PassTheHandle initiative.
Be sure to mark your calendar for July 26 and show us how you #PassTheHandle through your social media outlets. People using the hash tag will have a chance to win dozens of great products from the top brands in the industry. See you on the water!
