Boat Access Only Wakeboarding Tournament Hosted by TNT Watersports & Pates Ford Marina on Center Hill Lake at Stillhouse Creek.


6323 Jefferson Road Smithville, TN 37166


TNT Watersport’s WakeFest is a community outreach event designed to promote the sport of wakeboarding. Started in 2005 on Old Hickory Lake, Wakefest has ever growing popularity not only locally but in the southeast. With divisions starting as young Children and up to Professional, all ages and skill levels are celebrated in this grassroots tournament.


In 2012, Wakefest re-located to Pates Ford Marina at Center Hill Lake in order to expand and attract and even larger group of riders and spectators. The re-location was a success with over 75 riders and 2000 spectators making it one of the largest grassroots tournaments in the Southeast.


Continuing with this success, this year’s event will include a Pro Division Tournament on Saturday  featuring some of today’s top wakeboarding pro riders!  This years sponsors include Bud Light, Austermiller Roofing, Malibu Boats, Fireball Whiskey, Pates Ford Marina, Fish Lipz Grill, Tootsies,  Hyperlite, Signature Limo.
