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!

When’s a good day to Wakeskate? Everyday. ⁣⁣But…..⁣⁣Huge thanks to everyone that made our #wakeskatewednesday event such a success. Thank you to the @thepwl & @buywake & riders @bsstl@travisdoran & @alex.ambs for making it happen.

“I Needed This!” – Wake for Warriors – Lake Allatoona

Connect, Share, Celebrate and Serve.  It's what Wake for Warriors does!

“I needed this!”… a phrase heard several times over the weekend here on Lake Allatoona for event #4 of the 2021 Wake for Warriors season.  A sense of deep gratitude came over the water as a reflection of how exciting and confident we all were in cherishing these special moments following the pandemic.  The BuyWake crew joined Dave Deep, founder of WFW, and the rest of the group for another inspiring weekend full of blue skies, lake vibes, and shakas all around!

Kicking off the event, the chilly air of Friday morning lifted just as the coffee ran out and the riders started to shed their wetsuits. Boats were stocked with a quiver of wakeboards, wakesurfers and CGA vests provided by the good folks from Hyperlite Wake. For the new-goers, the day as a whole was an introduction to the healing power of water sports, and the more experienced veterans were captivated by a new challenge of foiling. Read More >

New Nautique, Some Golf, Daytona Bike Week and Back

How’s that for a title? Last week I ventured down to Florida with my good friend EBev (OG Hyperlite rep) to participate in some “team building” with our good friends and partners, Nautique. It was without a doubt one of the more fun trips I’ve ever had. Jam packed each day is an understatement.

Lake Nona Golf & Country Club

Our trip started with a nice little round of golf at a little hole in the wall golf course called Lake Nona Golf & Country Club a week after it hosted the 2021 Gainbridge LPGA event. NBD. We had a blast from start to finish, as the fairways were pure, the bunkers were visited, and the greens rolled about as fast as it gets. It was awesome to spend the day with such an inspiring group of guys that truly have a passion for their respective brands and know how to unwind and get away from the day-to-day and enjoy a solid round. Well played, boys. Read More >

Suwannee Dirge Birge Floatchilla – Bear, SpaceMob & Friends

Suwannee Dirge Birge Floatchilla Crew

When Bear (Bryan Soderlind) calls us up with a fun idea we can promise you the answer is always going to be YES! Bear gathered up the SpaceMob crew and had a little surprise guest up his sleeve that turned out to be MP Cunningham of the legendary show Aqua Donkeys. This trip was an absolute VIBE. The images that Bear captured of this four-day adventure will forever be classics and a reminder of the good times had. You know PB had to be on the trip as well, to just be that ace up the sleeve. Parks‘ drone skills lent a helping hand to the vibe of the video and, trust us, this video is a classic! Can’t help but give a cheers to PB for the songs too. Just wait for the last song, it’s as good as it gets. Read More >

Unfinished Business | …20 Years Later with Brian Grubb

UNFINISHED BUSINESS ...20 YEARS LATER WITH BRIAN GRUBB

Brian Grubb has arguably done more for wakeskating this past 20 years than anyone. Red Bull has done several videos with him that have helped expose wakeskating worldwide. One of the most iconic memories we have is the first cover of Alliance Wake Magazine. As Alliance is celebrating 20 years they dropped something really cool. Shane and the Pointless guys decided to recreate the old cover, but the big public reveal is he didn’t actually make that rail hit back then, but now he intends to. This is legendary on so many levels.

“With little hesitation, Brian Grubb took aim at this rail on his wakeskate and on the first attempt nearly went full-pull, sending the rest of Pointless into a frenzy. Although it wasn’t a complete “make,” the attempt alone would define not only Pointless, but Grubb’s future path. At that very same moment Grubb was stamping his mark on wakeskating, we at Alliance Wakeboard Magazine were putting together our inaugural issue – most importantly, selecting our first cover. The cover of any magazine is the most coveted, and celebrated, form of recognition in any board sport. We understood that our first cover had to be a statement. Not only as an image, but as a direction, and ultimately, a VOICE. Grubb’s attempt at THIS rail, on a wakeskate, was a defining moment not only for him, but perfectly timed for the statement and history Alliance hoped to make. For us, choosing the image was undeniable and when the cover hit there was no question: Alliance, Grubb, and Pointless were moving the sport forward in a new way. This was not only our first cover, but Grubb’s as well. Pointless would soon debut Incomplete, and Grubb would earn Alliance’s first coveted Rider of the Year award. That’s a lot of history for one move, and a magazine cover that wasn’t a make.” Read More >
