During the launch party, TransWorld will showcase its newly branded print issue and offer everyone free riding at one of the best cable parks in the world!

“Becoming a part of TransWorld Media will strengthen WAKEBOARDING’s brand recognition and bring even more attention to our sport and industry,” said Director of Brand Strategy, Matt Hickman. “Looking back as a lifelong participant in the sport, I’ll consider this one of the greatest moments in wake history.”
TransWorld Media, a leader in the action sports market for over 27 years, will integrate TransWorld WAKEBOARDING with its six other brands: TransWorld SKATEboarding, TransWorld SNOWboarding, TransWorld SURF, TransWorld Ride BMX, TransWorld Motocross, and TransWorld Business.
