Delgoffe to serve as the official Wakeboarding Coach for The Cliffs
LAKE KEOWEE, S.C. –The Cliffs has entered into an agreement with professional wakeboarder Abby Delgoffe to further the amenities and lake lifestyle for its members. Now as one of Delgoffe’s sponsors, The Cliffs has named her as its official Wakeboard Coach and a member of The Cliffs’ Wellness Team. As another added benefit to The Cliffs’ members and their guests, Delgoffe will provide a series of Wakeboard Weekends on Lake Keowee featuring demonstrations of her greatest tricks and small group clinics for all ages and experience levels.
Abby Delgoffe began wakeboarding in college. After turning pro in 2012, Abby took 7th overall at Wake Games, as well as a team division win. Currently ranked 12th in the world, the tour takes her around the world, from the USA to Canada, Mexico, Japan and Portugal.
Delgoffe first became affiliated with The Cliffs when she hosted her first wakeboard clinic on Lake Keowee last summer. She recently hosted the first of two wakeboarding demonstrations and a series of six clinics on June 25-28.
“Our inaugural wakeboarding event with Abby Delgoffe in 2014 created a ripple effect of interest. Last year, Abby catered and taught to the needs of each person individually. She had riders from the ages of 9 to 70 standing on a wakeboard for the first time in their lives, and even had seasoned riders challenging themselves to new levels,” stated Dr. Matt Ort, Director of Health, Fitness, and Recreation at The Cliffs.
Dr. Ort continued, “This partnership further illustrates The Cliffs’ investment to lake living and the overall lifestyle within our seven communities. We are really excited about building our relationship with Abby. She is an extraordinary individual in all facets of life and adds another incredible opportunity for The Cliffs’ members to access, experience and make great memories with friends and family. Abby is a class act and we are proud to have her on our team.”
“I am beyond excited to be partnered with The Cliffs as its Wakeboard Coach. Last year’s clinics were a great success, and I look forward to showing the members of The Cliffs the amazing world of lake life and wakeboarding, especially on the gorgeous Lake Keowee. I look forward to working with more of the members and offering new activities to The Cliffs’ lake lifestyle,” Delgoffe stated.
As a sponsor of Abby Delgoffe, The Cliffs will receive brand recognition at all of her watersports events and competitions in the United States and around the world. The Cliffs will involve her in sales and marketing events, as well as include her as part of The Cliffs’ story; Delgoffe will contribute a story series for The Cliffs’ member newsletters and lifestyle magazine, SEVEN. Additional sponsors of Abby Delgoffe include Humanoid Wakeboards, Breathe Boardwear, Smith Optics, Nalu Tribe Sportswear, and Runa Clean Energy drink.
