2018 Nautique Masters at Callaway Gardens

Well we did it again…we survived another fun filled weekend at the Nautique Masters at Callaway Garden with industry friends, Athletes, and family!  We were pretty sure the rain would keep us down, but thankfully we only got hit with rain once or twice for a short amount of time.  Robin Lake went off with the best crowd cheering on the most elite athletes in the world!

Cheers to all that competed this year and we can’t wait to be back next year!  Congrats to Reed, Meagan, and  Harley on their wins!  Stars on the water,  warriors in the sun!  Big thanks go out to all the Nautique crew who put on this event and our Hyperlite support from Ebev and Mike!

Here is the shuv Indy that sealed the deal on my Masters win yesterday. Winning Masters is very unique, having so many towed watersports legends surrounding you makes it a truly special feeling. Thanks Nautique for including wakeskating in such an awesome event for so many years. 🤙🏽 @rockstarenergy @ronixwakeboards @supra_boats @mossyoak @sesitec @perfski #wakeskate 🎂 also, thanks @macncheeserulez for making me a toe cake, you the real mvp. 🙌🏻 📷: @wakeboardingmag @garrettcortese Read More >

Wake for Warriors – Strength Through Sharing and Shredding

Wake for Warriors is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by Marine Corps veteran Dave Deep. After serving four deployments abroad, Dave experienced first hand what our brave men and women in uniform were dealing with and decided he was going to do something to help them. Dave is passionate about wakeboarding and wakesurfing and wanted to channel his love of watersports into a positive, healing experience for his fellow service members.

Yardsale II Video Is Live

Today Rockstar released the highlight video for Yardsale II that went down at April 27th and 28th at the Valdosta Wake Compound.  Watch the main event video now.  Be looking for the team video edits to be dropping next week.

Does Pro Wakeboarding Have a Podium Problem?

Sports dynasties are nothing new. The New York Yankees ruled baseball from for over 4 decades. In the 44 seasons from 1921 to 1964, the Yankees appeared in 29 World Series and won 20 of them. The Boston Celtics won 8 consecutive NBA Championships from 1959-1966 and added 3 more championships in 1957, 1968, and 1969 respectively. The Montreal Canadiens owned the NHL from the 1950s through the 1970s. And, the NFL had the Steelers of the 1970’s, the 49ers of the 1980s, and the Patriots of the new millennium. Oh, and how could you forget Kelly Slater surfing his way to an unprecedented 11 world titles from 1994-2011 (even with a faux retirement thrown in the middle).  How does this relate to wakeboarding?

Yardsale II at Valdosta Wake Compound

If you were at Yardsale last year at Valdosta Wake Compound then there was no way you would miss out on this year’s Yardsale II.  This year’s format consisted of a main event on the full size cable combined with a six group video contest all going down in a three-day time span.  Yardsale II did not disappoint!

Friday was a full day of qualifying for the main event with regional riders and international riders all gunning for the top spot to get into the main show.  Our homie Brock Baker from Texas put in DOWN in his run and barely missed out to Dary Znebel, proving his level of talent.  We can’t wait to see more of him this season.  By the end of the day everything was set for the main event, but we couldn’t call it a night without a killer party.  Trust us…the party was all time.
