Empowering Heroes on Water: The Inspiring Journey of Operation Wake Surf

Operation Wake Surf, founded by Robby Maschhaupt in North Carolina, emerged from a dedication to giving back. This initiative, fueled by Robby’s racing background and a deep-seated respect for the military, inspired by his immigrant father, has blossomed into a national nonprofit organization. It uniquely leverages the healing power of watersports to support America’s heroes—first responders and military personnel, offering them solace, camaraderie, and a sense of community.

The journey of Operation Wake Surf is a testament to the transformative power of shared experiences. Beginning in 2008 as a personal mission, the initiative gained momentum in 2012, capturing the attention and support of leading watersports manufacturers and athletes. This support was not just a nod to the initiative’s potential but a cornerstone that helped to amplify its reach and solidify its mission. By 2019, the organization had expanded its vision, becoming a nonprofit committed to enriching the lives of its heroes, directing every cent of its proceeds to this noble cause.

A pivotal aspect of Operation Wake Surf’s success is its ability to host singular events across the country and transformative three-day gatherings on Lake Norman, North Carolina. These events, which pose significant logistical and financial challenges—are a highlight for many. They provide a platform for participants to bond, share their experiences, and embark on a journey of healing together. Stories of profound impact, like that of a Marine who found the realities of working in a jail to be overwhelmingly tough, a stark departure from both military and civilian life expectations and another individual who had endured the loss of a partner in an officer-involved shooting, underscore the healing power of these gatherings.

At the heart of Operation Wake Surf’s mission is the principle that healing comes from understanding and that strength is found in unity. The initiative, now reaching across the nation to touch the lives of countless heroes, stands as a beacon of hope and a testament to the power of community.

In this remarkable journey, Enovation Controls stands as a proud pillar of support. Through such collaborative efforts, the mission continues to flourish, making a significant impact on the lives it touches and expanding the reach of this remarkable cause.  We are deeply moved by the mission and transformative impact it has on our heroes.
