Chris Bischoff

Lifetime Achievement

One of the most versatile members of the wake community, Chris Bischoff impacted wakeboarding at more levels than any other industry professional. It all started when two other eventual hall of famers, Cobe Mikacich and Mike Weddington, got Chris out riding and then ultimately competing on the Pro Wakeboard Tour. During this same period, Bischoff and Mikacich created the first wakeboarding RV Tour across North America, called the “Fantastic Voyage”, where they’d spend months on the road introducing new people to wakeboarding in between Pro Tour stops. Chris brought his rider’s perspective over to the operations side of pro events where he could best implement the vision he had for competitive wakeboarding. He’s held a dynamic assortment of positions like pro team manager, chief judge, tournament director and now as a consultant to virtually all the premiere global wake events.
