The Double Flip, The Process

Recently I achieved a lifelong goal of mine of stomping a double flip on a wakeboard.  It has always been something that had always been on my mind at the beginning of each season up until now.  Wakeboarding for me, and I feel like others as well, has always been one big mental challenge of getting yourself to commit to a trick, whether it be a board slide or a double flip.  Through hundreds of slams and new approaches to the trick, I was able to finally overcome the mental block that had been holding me back all this time.  I can say without a doubt that most of us wakeboarders can relate when I say that pushing yourself to commit to a new trick is the hardest part of the sport, and can be the sole reason that you don’t end up with the trick that you wished for.

We closed out these last days of summer on Robin Lake at Callaway Gardens for the 2021 WWA Wakeboard Worlds and Nautique Wakesurf Masters competition for an action packed weekend that included history being made.

Off the dock with near perfect conditions on Day 1 the Amateur, Jr. Pro and Pro athletes went head to head in a heated semi-finals behind the award winning Super Air Nautique G23 and G23 paragon for the chance to advance to the next round. Among the highlighted included the Adaptive divisions who inspired those along the shoreline and those watching live across the globe.

Nautique 2021 Southeast Regatta at Lake Lanier Islands

A glorious view from our Nautique G21

One of the highlights of being a partner with Nautique is definitely going to the Southeast Regatta. We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones in this community of Nautique owners. The amount of new super trick G23s, Paragons, and some really sweet 210s was all-time. Our friends at Watersports Central were next to us and it was super fun to hang out with Jeff McKee, Rusty Malinowski, John Akerman, Erica Lang, and so many more Nautique Athletes.

There are two more Nautique Regattas this year one, in Texas and then Arizona, so if you live near those locations, we highly suggest you attend!

Wakeskate Wednesday at West Rock Wake Park

West Rock Wake Park

We’ve teamed up with The Professional Wakeskate League for some fun this summer and have been promoting #wakeskatewednesday pretty hard! The first stop was at our friend Daniel’s cable park called West Rock Wake Park…and it went OFF. As an added bonus, we are sending one of our BW x LF wakeskates to all the Wakeskate Wednesdays for people to use for the day…and, at the end of the day, one lucky person gets to keep it! Keep an eye out on Instagram for more of these #wakeskatewednesday coming to you town soon!
