Lake Tahoe, CA (February 25, 2022) — Robby Maschhaupt is accustomed to surprising people with the joy of water sports experiences. As the founder of Operation Wake Surf (OWS), RobbyM, as Maschhaupt is called, extends the joy of water sports to service men and women, first responders, and those less fortunate by offering thousands of pulls behind Centurion boats each year at the Pass the Handle and Centurion Salute to Service events.

RobbyM and his team remove the barriers to experiencing the positive change water sports boating can provide for all types of individuals, especially those facing challenges. The OWS team’s efforts embrace the “making life better” mission of Centurion and create wakes of positive change to others. And today, it was Maschhaupt who was surprised – by the recognition of his work through the Larry Meddock Award.

The Larry Meddock Award honors a person or charitable group who has gone above and beyond to promote or grow the water sports community, not for their own financial gain, by volunteering, helping underprivileged groups, or starting an organization that grows or promotes the sport.

Amy Mauzy, VP of Marketing and Sales at Centurion Boats, explained why they nominated Mauschhaupt for this well-deserved award, saying: “Operation Wake Surf is helping people combat life’s challenges by inspiring positive change through water sports. Robby is making life better at every opportunity. This is why we felt OWS was so deserving of this award.”

This is the 16th WSIA Summit, an annual gathering of senior leadership of all the major companies in the towed water sports industry. The focus is not on competition and sales, but collaboration, education and how we can advance our activities for all.
