Wake Outfitters came about as a result of passion and drive for all things Watersports. Originating in Ooltewah, Tennessee, we have grown up on the water and have a passion to see other people be able to enjoy life on the water.
After spending much time searching for the best gear and knowledgeable advice, we soon realized that there was a great need for people that care and know how to qualify others with the right equipment for their needs. Not everyone is the same and not every board will suit every need. That is where we shine. If you are looking for passionate people for wake surfing, paddle boarding or simply playing on the water - don't hesitate to reach out to us. You have a friend in the business.
We aren't just selling equipment. We are here to maximize your potential with trust, transparency and honesty. We aren't here to overwhelm you with every product on the market. We are here to bring you what we have used ourselves or what we know to be some of the best on the market. You will notice that we carry premium equipment and value. We offer beginner equipment to pro level gear. We would rather you get the equipment you deserve than apologize for bad quality later.
We take pride in your happiness and strive to operate on family values while giving back to the community. We are all in this life together and we should help each other to be better. God, family, life.
Thank you for trusting us with your equipment needs and we look forward to welcoming you to the Wake Outfitters family.
Todd began ocean surfing 40 years ago but was only introduced to wakesurfing in early 2017. 6 weeks later he bought a boat and has loved it ever since! He started competing 2 years ago and has reached podium on almost every event he has entered. Aside from Wake Outfitters, he also rides for Erie Wake and had the honor of having a custom model designed after him. His accomplishments this year alone have been more than he thought possible!
He and his fiancée Tina have 7 kids between the ages of 4 to 27 years old. All have experienced wakesurfing (except for Tina, she drives so Todd has plenty of surf time 😁). For the upcoming surf season, they are super excited that 2 of their daughters (Sage 16 and Lily 11) have aspired to compete and teach others! Todd and his family have also opened a wakesurf excursion business. If you are ever in Florida and want lessons or just to get out and surf, look them up at @flwakeadventures. Todd says “They plan to spread the word, teach and Pass the Handle to all!”.
