Fourth Annual #PassTheHandle Day

With a mission to share the passion for towed water sports worldwide, the fourth annual #PassTheHandle day will take place on July 23, 2017. 

Founded by wakeboarding and water ski legend, Zane Schwenk, #PassTheHandle encourages people to get out on the water and experience the exhilarating feeling of being towed across the water.

“The thrill of standing on the water is one of my first memories. Shaun Murray and I started this with a goal to pass that life-changing experience on to those who’ve never had the opportunity,” Schwenk said. “Now, we have the chance to teach and ensure the water sports lifestyle stays strong and present for the future generations to come.”

Backed by the WSIA and the entire industry, #PassTheHandle will grow participant levels by teaching people the right way to have fun and be safe on the water. After a successful launch in 2014, Schwenk is also appreciative of the year-round support of the #PassTheHandle initiative. Please join in on July 23 and share your photos and videos through social media.
