WATL State Profile: Florida

Winter is coming, so we’ll need to head south. The warm weather and abundance of axe throwing venues calls to us! Florida is home to the largest number of WATL affiliated axe houses of any state in the World Axe Throwing League. Spanning from Miami to Jacksonville and Pensacola the entire state is within 2.5 hours of an axe throwing facility at all times, and in most cases less than 1 hour.

Florida’s Top Talent

Florida’s top talent pool hails from the Jacksonville region as Dustin, Brandon and Dennis all primarily throw out of Autobahn Jacksonville. Having all been to at least a pair of major WATL tournaments in 2019 the growth of talent has been explosive.
