Josh Palma GoPro Edit via Alliance Wake

Winter has its grip on most of the Northern Hemisphere and if your like us, were jonesi’n for sunshine and 85 degree weather. So until June we will have to live vicariously through the guys on our pro team.

This video captures what it would be like riding 5 ft. behind a professional wakeboarder…an angle used in abundance for the first time in the classic Bump Films video “Free For All”.

Watch the video on Alliance Wakeboard Mag’s page. Check the hotness that IS @JoshPalma.

Josh is seen here riding the 2011 CWB Transcend 140 (currently 40 percent off @BuyWake.com) with 2012 CWB Marius Boots.

Veteran’s Day | Keith Lyman: United We Ride!

Today is a special day for us at BuyWake.com. Not only does today have numerical significance (11/11/11) but it also is Veteran’s day. On this day we honor the 24.9 million military veterans in the United States and the 1.5 million active duty troops.

It is no secret that long-time BuyWake.com pro rider Keith Lyman retired from wakeboarding last Spring to pursue a career in the Armed Forces. Keith’s last contribution to his fans is the 2012 Slingshot Lyman, a kind of tribute designed to carry on Keith’s legacy in wakeboarding and Slingshots progression of wakeboard technology. Keith is known for his overly-aggressive style of riding that he ultimately built his wakeboard career on. That is exactly what his board is designed to accommodate. Read More >

“Josh Palma’s Passion” Video

It seems that everyone has a soft spot for Josh Palma. There’s really not a bitter bone in the guys body. Josh is a product of the first Buywake.com Global Rider Search, which earned Josh priceless exposure and a handful of sponsorships back in 2004. This is what Josh had to say to Alliance Wakeboard Mag about winning the contest:

“Winning it was really pretty shocking. I’d shot that video with my roommate during my sophomore year of college. It was super last minute and sort of on the whim, so I wasn’t expecting much, but when I got a call from Chuck Morrow (owner of Ambush/Buywake.com) one afternoon I was completely shocked….really, it’s probably the most important thing that’s ever happened for me in my career, because it really is what started my career in the professional sense.” – via AllianceWake Read More >
