The Largest Wakeboarding Event in the Northeast, will once again be held on Lake Hopatcong, as hosted by the great Beach Front Venue of the Lake Forest Yacht Club.

This event is for anyone that loves the Beach, Water, Boats, Athletics or you’re just waiting for someone to take a big spill. Regardless of your interest, this is a must attend event in anyone within our region.

In 2016 as the Lake Forest Yacht Club hosted this event, they had over 1,000 spectators watching as over 60 riders competed in New Jersey Wake-off to become the best!

Wake-Off LogoWhat is the Wakeboarding Event (Wake-Off?):

This is a competition of where skiers of different ages follow a specialized boat that makes a high wake, and the skiers use the wake to do unbelievable acrobatics, as they jump, twist and turn in double and triple flips you never thought possible.

Lake ForestThe Lake Forest Yacht Club Venue:

This pristine private club that is open to the public for this event, features a long sandy beach, ample parking, and plenty of built-in seats under the trees, or you can bring your own beach chairs to enjoy the event. The action is within a few feet of the shore so everyone has a great seat.

Wake-Off Background:

In 2008, a young, enthusiastic, wakeboarder wanted to fill a void in a region with limited exposure to the great sport of wakeboarding.  With the help of Lake Hopatcong Marine, family, and friends the Garden State Wake-off was born. For two years Hopatcong State park hosted our great event, showcasing the acrobatic skills of riders varying in ages from five to sixty-five.  Inevitably, the competition grew and needed a change. 

In 2010 the Garden State Wake-off shifted to the Lake Forest Yacht Club, a prime location in Lake Hopatcong's Northern most cove, with a huge beach venue, and outstanding amenities it was the perfect fit.  For 2012 the competition was renamed with some Jersey Fresh style, the competition was dubbed the JERSEY WAKE-OFF!

The 2013 Jersey Wake-off made its official Summer time debut on August 10th.  A monumental step for the competition after a few years of cold rains, fall winds and even a hurricane.  For 2013 spectators and riders arrived at a glassy lake yielding soft winds, warm temperatures, and perfect water conditions.  Summertime welcomed the Jersey Wake-off with open arms!

2016 proved to be the best year in Wake-off history! Although the temperatures were at record highs that didn't stop the largest group of riders in history from competing as over 1000 spectators looked on from the beach and their boats! Mikey Conrady came all the way from Wisconsin to take home the gold in the Outlaw division. He's due back this year to defend his title in what is expected to be the most epic 10th Anniversary with new sponsors and new prizes you won't want to miss this one!
