The future of the South Florida Wakeboarding Association (SFWA)…sounds like a scary title doesn’t it? Well it is not, it is actually the prelude to a major announcement relating the association. So let’s get to the announcement and then we can talk about how we got here. Starting with the publishing of this post, the leadership of the SFWA will be changing. Morgan (Baer) and I (Jimmy Beno) will both be stepping down and handing control (and the future of the SFWA) to Kimber and Rishy Rajoo. You may know Kimber and Rishy through their production company R2R Productions. They have both been very active in the wake community over the past several years wth their latest journey being the ultra successful Railapoolza event that was recently held in Orlando. So what does this mean for the SFWA? We believe it means the first steps on a journey that will involve growing the SFWA to levels beyond what we could have dreamed. So now that the announcement is out of the way… let’s get to the background.

This is by far the biggest collection of superstars that we have ever had at Pros and Joes!! If you aren’t stoked and excited about the event after reading this list, you need to check your pulse and make sure you are alive. These guys promise to kill it and put on a show for all involved. Registration is closed but the event is free to the public, so get everyone you know and DO NOT miss this event. It is all day, enjoy the riding, the giveaways and our vendors. Let’s make this year’s event the biggest and the best event we have ever had. Can’t wait to see you on the 6th!!! Stay stoked!!!
Time for our first membership meeting of the year. On Febuary 23rd, 2008, we are planning on meeting at Okeeheelee Park at the Micanopy Pavillon from 11:00am until whenever (if you need directions to Okeeheelee Park send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward them to you ASAP). We will be planning the upcoming years events and enjoying some food and riding behind the X-Star and X-2. If you haven’t been to a membership meeting please try to attend this one as it is going to be the decision meeting behind the upcoming year and we really value your input. I really hope to see you there!!!!
The next couple of months are going to be hectic for our association. With November 17, 2007 fast approaching our first wakeboard tournament is right around the corner. “Pros and Joes” is going to be our coming out party so to speak; our announcement to the wakeboarding world that South Florida is back in the game for good. The planning for the event is going great, I am so excited to tell you the progress we have made when we meet for our September 8, 2007 membership meeting at SkiRixen. I really hope to see you there because this will be our best opportunity to meet and discuss the event. If you can be there, please do so-alot of information will be shared this day and I don’t want anyone to miss out.
Well, we are going to try it again and hopefully mother nature cooperates with us this time. On SEPTEMBER 8, 2007 at the SkiRixen Cable Park located in Deerfield Beach, Florida from 3:00pm until 7:00pm we will host a SFWA membership meeting. If you are a member of the SFWA, this meeting is a must as we will be discussing our November 17, 2007 event-“Pros and Joes”. It is imperative that you come to this meeting as we will be discussing several issues including volunteering and the overall concept. If you are not a member of the SFWA, come check us out. See what we are about and enjoy some time with fellow riders.
Just a quick update on the association. The next several months are going to be pretty hectic for the club. By the end of this month we will be publishing our first quaterly newsletter (if anyone is interested in writing a piece for the newsletter please contact me ASAP), we are in the process of planning a September event to be held at the Key Lime House in Lantana (nothing set in stone yet but there could be some big riders on their way) and we are in full speed mode planning for our November 17th, year-end tournament (we will be seeking volunteers very soon). In addition, the membership numbers continue to grow. Currently, we have 41 memberships with a total of 78 members. We are fast approaching our goal of 100 members. So join me in welcoming to the club the following: Cassius Cade and family, Mark Roche, Fred Chidsey and family, Victor Vazquez, Donald Hyams and family (including his son Kyle who was on the cover of the May 2007 issue of Alliance Wakeboarding Magazine), Mark Carter, Dannielle Crawford of the WWA and Myles Minns and family.
As posted earlier, the SFWA held it’s first membership meeting at the SkiRixen Cable Park on June 30, 2007. Unfortunately, mother nature would not cooperate as the rain poured down. However, we weren’t denied and for those who made it out, the day finished on a positive note with food, conversation and, most importantly, riding.
Just a quick update as to our membership numbers as the association grows. Remember membership is about more than the t-shirt and discounts, it is about the opportunity to be apart of the wakeboarding community in South Florida. It you haven’t joined you don’t know what your missing. As our voice grows in our community so does the opportunities that we have to grow the sport. Our membership list is growing by leaps and bounds, our current membership count is at 73 individuals and growing each day. With that in mind, join me in welcoming Karen Alford, John Nowicki, Morgan Baer and Family, Jeremy Fountain and Family, Mark Clauss and Family, Dan Wetzel, Dominic Rocco, Cassius Cade and Family and Calvin Warriner. The website is also growing as we have had almost 3,000 views in little under a month-not bad!
