Wave Sport Team Announced for 2012


GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 13, 2012) – Wave Sport has been a leader in whitewater kayaking for over 25 years. Always innovative and always driven to perform, Wave Sport has spread the love of boating through its designs and through the people paddling its boats. Along the way, there have been characters, eccentrics (of the good-natured variety, of course) and more than a fair share of wickedly talented individuals. Through it all, the uniting trait of all Team Wave Sport athletes has been an unrestrained enthusiasm for the water-bound journey. The 2012 Team Wave Sport athletes are no different.

“For 2012, Team Wave Sport is more well-rounded and experienced than ever before,” said long-time team manager and top freestyle competitor, Bryan Kirk. “Athletes with specialties in filmmaking, racing, expeditions, freestyle, and instruction are situated around the globe to help promote our amazing sport and Wave Sport's latest designs.”

This season is already shaping up to be filled with adventure. With a beefed up competitive season, including the Teva Mountain Games, the Freestyle World Cup and training for the 2012 Freestyle World Championships, several Team Wave Sport athletes will be representing at the biggest events in the nation. Those not competing are turning to exploration. By press time, Tanya Faux will have completed a 30-day, self-support, all-female expedition of the Kimberley Region in Australia. The expedition is monumental on a number of levels, but most important for raising awareness and money for an endangered river ecosystem.

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.
