Radar Lake is the place that set the wheels in motion for what wakeboarding is today. It has been the genesis of some of the most influential board/boot designs in the industry and is consistently ground zero for the most progressive parts of modern-era wake videos. Typically, riders only dream about experiencing the aura and mysticism of Radar Lake first hand. But, recently we’ve teamed up with Ronix Wake to make this dream come true! We’re sending one lucky BuyWake fan on an all-expense paid trip to Radar Lake for three days and two nights where they will ride in the footsteps of wakeboarding’s giants. Sign up online here and who knows…maybe you’ll get put on the Radar.

The “flex board” phenomenon has picked up tremendous momentum over the past five years. Lately, with opinion leaders like Shawn Watson, Gabe Lucas, Jeff Mckee, and Kevin Henshaw giving their nod of approval to these nontraditional boards, one can’t ignore the potential of flex. I personally have not ridden a traditionally constructed wakeboard since the Fall of 2007, back when only one or two major brands had fully committed to the idea of manufacturing a flexible wakeboard.
Fast forward to 2012 and almost every major wakeboard manufacturer offers some kind of flex board in their line up with applications ranging from solely hitting sliders (like the early Hyperlite Roam series) to charging the wake fast and hard (like the new 2012 Slingshot Lyman). Here’s a quick guide to contrast some of the most prominent flex boards on the market for 2012.
