Leaf a Legacy – Cannes Film Festival

The world premiere of the Straight8 film competition at the Cannes Film Festival made the top 25. Our film “Leaf a Legacy” featuring Jake Ramsdell was a smash hit and well received. Written by @reesedaquin and myself, Co directed 🎥 by @reesedaquin and @g_cottrell , and scored by Uncle, Nathan Frimmel and myself. Normally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival;
The stipulations are you must make your entire film on one roll, and send the audio in separately. Because of this we have not seen the piece ourselves! So during the premiere will be our first watch! Couldn’t be more proud of the team and thank you to @buywake and @leafskates for the support of the film. Wishing we could be in France for the premiere! Thanks @straight8 Read More >

Liquid Force x Shane x BuyWake.com “Score a Video Edit from Shane Bonifay!”

Do you want Shane Bonifay to visit your town for 48 hours and video you and your crew either riding boat or cable…maybe winch? We are stoked that Liquid Force has teamed up with this idea. Shane is not only a legend in wakeboarding, but Shane has been doing video since the Pointless days. His catalog runs deep and this is an opportunity for you and the homies to be a part of history. Don’t sleep on this!

The Nautique Wakesurf Masters at Callaway Gardens

This year the WWA and Nautique had 6 stops all over the world for their Wakesurf Series. The final event was this weekend at the legendary Robin Lake at Callaway Gardens, home of the Masters Water Ski & Wakeboard Tournament. The temperatures were high and the amount of money being given away was even higher. A total of $60,000 was awarded to both pro and amateur wakesurf divisions this weekend. That is not a typo. BuyWake teamed up with Hyperlite and had some of the latest 2020 wakesurfers to show those that were at the event. A few lucky people picked up some goods to take home with them. One of the highlights was seeing the new 2020 Nautique G23 in action all weekend, but for a couple of the boys here it was being able to wakesurf behind the event boat and on Robin Lake for the first time. We look forward to another great time at Callaway Gardens! Read More >

2019 Wakeskate World Championships

What a weekend. The Wakeskate World Championships went down this past weekend and with hundreds of thousands in attendance (give or take), the world’s best wakeskaters competed for a $10,000 first place purse. Bob Soven is a man of many talents and putting on a world-class event may or may not be one of them.

That’s a wrap on the #WakeskateWorldChampionships. What started out as a fever dream in the mind of Bob Soven turned into a sick event that saw some of the most progressive riding behind the boat ever. Full recap edit is dropping at #BeersandPremieres during Surf Expo. Don’t worry, it’s worth the wait…thanks to all the sponsors for making this event happen!  📸: @jeffshotthat Read More >

2019 Yardsale 3 at Valdosta Wake Compound

There are a few events every year that really tickle our collective pickle, and you better believe that Yardsale is one of them. The first two Yardsales were wild and filled with some of the most amazing riders from across the globe. Yardsale 3 did not disappoint, as there were some familiar faces like Liam, Wes, Anna, and several others. The riding was at a all-time high with new additions to the Sesitec 2.0 section that really made riders choose their lines wisely. Take your time to vote for best trick and stay tuned for the full video of the event!
