Wave Sport Sponsors 29th Annual Gauley Fest

The brand continues its support of American Whitewater

Greenville, S.C. – Wave Sport is once again supporting American Whitewater at the 29th annual Gauley Fest by raffling off a Project X 56 freestyle kayak. The festival is the largest river festival in the world and the biggest, single fundraising event for American Whitewater. Gauley Fest will take place September 14-16, 2012 in Summersville, W.V.

A longtime supporter of American Whitewater, Wave Sport believes in taking every opportunity to get out on the river and celebrate with the whitewater community, especially in support of the conservation of whitewater resources.

“The Gauley Fest embodies everything that Wave Sport represents: a passion for whitewater, rivers, and community,” said Jessica Prescott, marketing manager for Wave Sport. “It is the biggest river festival in the U.S. and the largest fundraiser for American Whitewater, so we are excited to support the event again this year.”

Wave Sport will have a booth at Gauley Fest and will be raffling off a brand new Project X 56 to one lucky winner. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. All proceeds from the raffle benefit the whitewater preservation work of American Whitewater.

Stop by the Wave Sport booth to meet Team Wave Sport athletes, check out the new Wave Sport Recon Series, Ethos Series, new color combinations, and relax with games and a cold beer.

About Wave Sport:
Wave Sport was founded in 1986 with a dedication to all things whitewater, and that philosophy holds true today. For Wave Sport, paddling is a journey whether over the course of a day or a lifetime. Some journeys are destined for a local, glassy surfing wave, while the journey for others may culminate in a first descent of some remote and enormous drop. For those who believe paddling is not just an activity, but a way of life, Wave Sport welcomes you to the ride. Join the Wave Sport Community and learn more at www.wavesport.com.
