It’s a new year and not the ideal temperature for riding, but every year you should have a new wake goal. Learn a new invert or add a 180 to a existing trick you have is the most common thing to do. Well, this year it’s for the guy who hasn’t ridden in a while or takes 1 set every so often. Slingshot has a new board this year called the Nomad and it’s here to revive the passion you once had wakeboarding. The Nomad is about having fun and making wakeboarding easier. This board is all about increased stability, strong pop, softer landings, cruising at slower speeds, and a much larger surface area. It’s big. It’s really big, but it’s really a simple idea, and a perfect one at that. You don’t need a super aggressive board or your typical 142cm size anymore, you need a Nomad. This board is built for larger riders or riders with bad knees who really want to get out and slash around and throw some lofty wake-to-wake jumps. It comes in a 150, 155, and 160, and it’s guaranteed to make you have fun again on the water!
Well, wake season is winding down.
It’s almost time to fold up your boardshorts for the summer and start searching for that hoody you tucked away in the depths of your closet back in April. It’s the normal progression, right? WRONG! All the new 2015 gear just landed and it’s time to squeeze everything you possibly can out of your season and stay out there!! You’re in your prime, you’ve been practicing all season long, why not treat yourself to something new and finish your season on a freakin’ high note?
Here’s the lowdown on some of the HOT ITEMS for 2015 – and you can get them NOW at BuyWake.com!
Wakeboards – New Board Shapes for 2015
Another successful dealer days in the books!
Perfect Washington weather hovering around the mid-70’s, hallowed grounds at Radar Lake, and an exclusive insight to the 2015 Ronix Line. What more could you ask for?
This year I got to take John “Bubba” Goza – our Trip to Radar Lake Sweepstakes Winner – up with me. The Ronix Crew and myself included couldn’t have been luckier to spend a few awesome days with such a solid dude. It truly was an honor to get to know Bubba and to ride with him.
Bubba and I got into Seattle late Thursday night and since we are both East Coast guys, we were up at the butt crack of dawn the next morning – ready to hear about the new gear and go straight into riding it. We were about 3 hours early to breakfast, but I got my bowl of Lucky Charms cereal to start off the day – haha.
It’s about the time of the year again where thousands of wake fans descend on the Midwest for the world’s most esteemed wake festival, BROstock. For 2014 Liquid Force has invited 26 of the world’s top wakeboarder’s to come battle it out in the Ozark Mountains for over $30,000 cash – one of wakeboarding’s most lucrative prize purses – in one of the most intense double up competitions of the year.
Being that Pabst Blue Ribbon a main sponsor of the event, BROstock comes complete with a mammoth lake party that rivals that of a Lake Lanier 4th of July. The party alone brings with it a certain set of demands that, in order to keep the party going, one must be accommodated for. We’ve taken the liberty to list all the BROstock must-haves in one convenient place so that when you get to The Lake Of The O̶z̶a̶r̶k̶s̶ BROzarks, you’ll be ready to bro.
