With over 30 years in the watersports industry ProWake is the lovechild of brothers Daniel and Mick Watkins (hmm... that almost sounds incestuous).
Both Mick and Daniel have helped shape the watersports industry in Australia, and in particular have had a heavy influence on the wakeboarding scene. Growing up performing in waterski shows, the brothers followed on from Daniel's success as one of the first professional Australian wakeboarders in the USA to bring the Australian Pro Tour of Wakeboarding to Australia in 2000, while Mick was editor at large for both of Australia's largest wakeboard magazines Wake and Boarder.
Since then events such as the Monster Energy Tigé Tour, Grommie Nats, the ProWake Show and Tigé Owners Reunions are all credited to the pair.
In 2003 they opened Daniel Watkins DejaVu on the Gold Coast, before rebranding and launching their online store ProWake.com.au in 2007.
10 years on and ProWake is now the online industry leader and trusted name in Australia for wakeboard, wakesurf, wakeskate and waterski products and service, with a deep range from all of the leading brands and a customer base that spreads to every corner of Australia.
The future looks bright with Mick and Daniel embarking on the next adventure: the Gold Coast Wake Park – a cable wakeboarding park on the Gold Coast. The cable park, combined with the ProWake pro shop and online store will form a key part of Australia's wakeboard and watersports landscape for decades to come.
Opened March 2017
