The World Wake Association and ezDrive Thruster announced today that they have signed a strategic partnership: the agreement combines the goals of the two organizations in furthering interest in wake sports by making it easier and safer to operate wakesport boats, thereby making it easier to participate in wake sports activities. 

The ezDrive Thruster system is available through a number of OEMs and dealers, allowing boat operators to quickly u-turn the boat to pick up fallen riders, thereby increasing safety and providing more time to enjoy wakesports while saving 30% more fuel. Additionally, ezDrive Thrusters make docking and trailering simple.

Tony Valiente, COO of ezDrive Thruster, commented that our well-proven success in boat control on tens of thousands of salt water cruisers and yachts over the last 17 years, led to our pioneering and development of the ezDriveThruster to improve the wakesports boat experience and bring more enthusiasts to enjoy boating. We are pleased to partner with the WWA, an association which shares our passion for increased recreational boating and enjoyment of the water.

The World Wake Association’s Executive Director, Corrie Wilson, said, “For more than thirty-two years, the WWA has provided a stage for all wake sports athletes to compete across the globe. Our partnership with ezDrive Thruster provides an ideal way to increase awareness of our activities while at the same time embracing a product which makes it easier, safer and more economical for our athletes and budding athletes to enjoy the sport.”
