Our friends and new partner WaterSports Central have locations in Georgia and South Carolina. We teamed up several times this summer for demo days and took potential Customers (now Customers) who are interested in the Nautique G21 out for a days of fun and informative product training. Brandon Lee is a really close friend of ours and Director of Marketing for WSC, and we look forward to teaming up together for many more days on the water!
Scott has a much anticipated video that finally dropped and it’s fantastic! Known for his silky smooth riding style of slayish’s and going big this new project “For Love Of The Game” didn’t disappoint. Take a few moments to watch one of the best videos of the year!
“A Scott Stewart project filmed by John Jeffries and edited by Jimmy McClure for those who do it for the love of the game. Huge thanks to The Boarding School for all the support.” – Jimmy McClure
The Wakeboarding Hall of Fame is one of the most hallowed places in the world of wakeboarding. Being inducted means that the story of wakeboarding cannot be told without you. It is a testament to one’s contribution to the sport and the ultimate recognition that you have reached the pinnacle of wakeboarding. Whether your are an industry pioneer or one of the greatest riders of all time, Wakeboarding Hall of Fame inductions aren’t handed out, they are earned through decades of dedication to wakeboarding and its culture.
The 2018 Wakeboarding Hall of Fame class is, in my humble opinion, the greatest class in the young history of the Hall. This class truly represents the golden days of wakeboarding when it went from fringe activity to a highly revered board sport. If previous WHOF classes were paying homage to the sport’s founding fathers, this class was honoring the riders and industry titans that blew the lid off of wakeboarding and took it to the next level and beyond.
Sleepless in Seattle
Billy and I flew into Seattle pretty early and decided to head to the Pike Place Market and grab some food before our trip to Radar, and it was exactly what I thought it would be. Crowded. We made our way past the throwing of dead fish and walked to a spot Billy had previously went to called Cutters Crabhouse that overlooked Elliott Bay in the Puget Sound. Super sick spot and would recommend.
Off to Radar Lake
We hit the road and nothing shy of 30 minutes later we arrived at the pearly gates of heaven on earth. Once we received the secret code we were in. It was exactly as I had imagined. The pristine waters of Radar Lake were in my direct line of site and a boat was headed towards us and the rider being pulled had a smile so large I could see it from hundreds of yards away. Billy and I were given a truly mint camping site and we parked our epic rental car (Ford Focus “Titanium” edition) and got our gear dialed into our own separate tents for the trip.
After getting settled in and catching up with our rep, longtime friend and Ronix OG Danny Harf offered to show us around the property a bit. I’m talking hundreds of acres in the pristine Pacific Northwest here people…trees that are over a hundred years old and trails for miles and miles. So, we saddled up some trusty four wheel steeds and preceded to act like 13-year-olds who just stole their dad’s ATVs. Such an epic adventure. Here are a few one-handed driving photos (yeah…super easy and safe, let me tell you).
Visiting the Ronix HQ
We were given the opportunity to go visit the world headquarters of Ronix/Radar/Eight.3 (Square One Distribution), which was really cool to see in person. Their warehouse is super high tech and features some of the coolest office spaces I’ve ever seen. Really appreciated the level of detail that they work by. They’ve set the bar pretty high, one of the most badass warehouses ever.
The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge
EDIT: If you don’t like golf scroll past this one…hahaha
Oh, you better believe we did this. The TPC Snoqualmie course is the only Jack Nicklaus designed course in the entire state of Washington. Jason Standley (Ronix Shaper) organized a round of golf for a few of us and I ended up playing with Massi and D. Harf for what would be a round I’ll never forget. Massi’s antics and outfit was one for the books and kept Dan and me laughing the entire time. Basically, the views on this course were phenomenal and the course was in excellent shape, as it is preparing to host the 2018 Boeing Classic. Seriously, the shit was super perfect.
Camp Fire Vibes
Can’t forget about the iconic camp fires that we’ve heard about and finally got to experience firsthand. All we can say is that you have to be there because what is said around the fire stays at the fire.
P.S. You better step up your music playlist because it will be judged…hahaha
