2014 Pro Wakeboard Tour Acworth Georgia

Summer for us is always kicked off with the first stop of the Pro Wakeboard Tour at Dallas Landing in Acworth, Georgia.   The Tour always brings out the best in Acworth every year.  It  introduces wakeboarding to people and families.  We have so many people stop by the Ambush and BuyWake.com tent asking our team about ways to get involved in wakeboarding.  The beach and shoreline is filled with all different kinds of people, whether it’s their 5th year in a row being out there to families stumbling across the contest by accident on a random Saturday.  Not only is there a great turn out on the beach, but the city of Acworth puts on an amazing block party in the heart of downtown every year.  They have so much going on into the night with live bands, food and booze stands along with all the restaurants putting on amazing specials.  Each year the city of Acworth throws down a solid job of hosting the first stop of the tour.

We’re proud to be in a position to partner up with an iconic brand like LF, who easily has one of the longest and most consistent legacies in the industry.

2013 Surf Expo Recap

We love September for three reasons: next year’s product is dropping, the heaviest season edits are being uploaded, and of course Surf Expo – the annual “active lifestyle” trade show in Orlando where the air is tinged with new gear, swimsuit models, and wakeboarding’s elite. We attended Surf Expo this past weekend to get the lowdown on everything 2014 and bump elbows with our industry brethren. It was a wild ride but we persevered. Here’s some of the highlights straight from the floor.
