The Kings of Wake

Wakesurfer Callum Bondy of Chicago rides the wake during competition in the Supreme Northwest Wake Surf Open on Lake Tye in Monroe on Sunday, July 16. Unlike wakeboarding, where a boat pulls the rider, wakesurfers drop the rope once they are up, and ride along on the boat’s wake. Amateur surfers from throughout the U.S. and Canada participated in the weekend-long competition, as riders qualified for the Centurion Boats World Wakesurfing Championships in September in British Columbia. The pro wakeboard tour that came to Lake Tye in past summers isn’t scheduled to take to the lake this year.
