Well, 2020 has been one helluva year (and there's still four months to go)!! Even with all the craziness in our world, we couldn't skip our annual ritual known as the WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards presented by Hyperlite. Luckily for us, the Riders Choice Awards is completely virtual, so we were able to pull it off without violating any federal or local laws or statutes!
A full month of voting culminating in the compilation and broadcasting of the data input by our readers lets the world know what real wakesports enthusiasts think and only makes future products and riders that much better. Plus, there's no better way to end the summer than to give away some great free 2021 Hyperlite gear to our faithful readers!
We've combed through the data, run database queries, cleaned out the bots and have finally come up with the winners in each category. Those lucky winners, both riders and companies, have been awarded with some pretty cool trophies. However, let's first address the awesome stuff that our readers will get for doing nothing more than sharing their thoughts with us.
The WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards presented by Hyperlite is well known for hooking up our voters handsomely, and 2020 is no different. Our presenting sponsor, Hyperlite, has not only given up some goodies for our readers to enjoy, but they've made available some of their 2021 gear, which most people have not even seen yet.
