Blake Bishop LTD

How did you find out about your first collab board with slingshot and Buywake?
Derek Davis from Ambush/BuyWake called me while I was in Australia and told me on my 18th birthday. It’s probably the best birthday present I have ever gotten, haha. I can’t thank BuyWake and Slingshot enough for making a board with my name on it.

What’s your favorite part about the board?
The color way and graphic we’re a perfect combination and the Shredtown base is my favorite. The Shredtwon base is so good and different than the rest of the boards so combining my favorite base and shape made for everything I could ask for in a board. Also, Windsor is one of my best friends so to have my name on his board shape that I usually ride was super cool. I was staying with Windsor in Australia at the time I found out so it was super cool.

Blake dialing in the System 2.0

Recently, a few of the Ambush Board Co. and BuyWake.com Team Riders ran out of town to visit fellow team rider Blake Bishop at his private cable park.  You may or may not have heard of this kid, but one thing is certain – you will remember his name.  Blake is an amazing 16 year old kid with the seasoned skills of a veteran and is backed by Slingshot Wake.  Cole Vanthof sat down with Blake and probed his brain with some random questions.  Take a minute to get to know this up and coming Georgia Boy.

1.Who is Blake Bishop?
I’m a 17 year old wakeboarder from Atlanta, Georgia.

2. What are your thoughts on the new generation of wakeboarders?
The new generation is coming in hot. Everyone has new and creative rail hits these days so I can only imagine what’s in store for the future. Read More >

The Weekend Getaway

So our Team Rider and young up and coming Blake Bishop has a dreamy private cable park in the rolling hills of Georgia.  Recently Blake and some of the Slingshot wake team riders descended upon his watering hole and Patrick Wieland filmed a killer edit.  Sit back and watch Blake Bishop, Pierce Bishop, Ben Leclair, James Windsor, Steffen Vollert, Alex Graydon, and Manu Rupp go off at the B Town Compound.
