2018 Nautique Masters at Callaway Gardens

Well we did it again…we survived another fun filled weekend at the Nautique Masters at Callaway Garden with industry friends, Athletes, and family!  We were pretty sure the rain would keep us down, but thankfully we only got hit with rain once or twice for a short amount of time.  Robin Lake went off with the best crowd cheering on the most elite athletes in the world!

Cheers to all that competed this year and we can’t wait to be back next year!  Congrats to Reed, Meagan, and  Harley on their wins!  Stars on the water,  warriors in the sun!  Big thanks go out to all the Nautique crew who put on this event and our Hyperlite support from Ebev and Mike!

Here is the shuv Indy that sealed the deal on my Masters win yesterday. Winning Masters is very unique, having so many towed watersports legends surrounding you makes it a truly special feeling. Thanks Nautique for including wakeskating in such an awesome event for so many years. 🤙🏽 @rockstarenergy @ronixwakeboards @supra_boats @mossyoak @sesitec @perfski #wakeskate 🎂 also, thanks @macncheeserulez for making me a toe cake, you the real mvp. 🙌🏻 📷: @wakeboardingmag @garrettcortese Read More >

2018 Hyperlite Shreducation Clinic

What do you do when Hyperlite wants you to take a few days off work, come down to Florida, and attend this years Shreducation?  YOU GO!

We packed up the truck early and ripped out of ATL around 5:00 AM for a quick stop in Valdosta to slap hi fives with the homies at Valdosta Wake Compound.  If you get a chance to swing through, make sure you’ve got your board with you because this place needs to be on your bucket list!
We landed in Orlando around 2:00 PM and were able to squeeze in a little round of golf on the front 9 with Jeff Langley and Marc Rossiter.  Thanks for the laughs, fellas.  We look forward to a full round of golf with you guys soon!

Fast forward to 5:00 PM and we pull into Orlando Watersports Complex, the hub of pretty much all cable riding in Orlando.  Talk about being BLOWN OUT!  White caps everywhere, but it wasn’t enough to keep folks from ripping! Read More >

Wakeboard Binding Closures: What’s the Best Option for You?

Laces vs. Velcro vs. Boa vs. Gummy Straps

What’s the most important part of your wakeboard set up you ask?  The bindings.

Wakeboard bindings have come a long way since the inception of our sport.  From sandal models to closed toe models and everything in between.  Along the way we’ve seen all kinds of closure systems and we wanted to break down what is going to be available for the 2018 season and help you choose the best style of binding for your riding needs!

This topic is highly subjective and based on personal preference, but keep an open mind to new things, as your next pair of bindings might be your favorite pair yet!

Laces:

Here’s your tried and true option, just like momma’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  You know it’s good, you know you like it, you know it works! Read More >

Q&A with Parker Borneman About the Hyperlite x Varial Surf Technology Collaboration

Parker Borneman is one of the many talents behind Varial Surf Technology, and with the new Hyperlite x Varial wakesurf boards that hit the market recently we wanted to pick his brain with a few questions.

Hyperlite x Varial Wakesurfers

BW: How did the Hyperlite x Varial partnership come about?  Did Hyperlite approach you with the idea, or did Varial already have the desire to cross over into the wakesurfing scene and Hyperlite was the brand you saw the most opportunity with?

PB: The relationship was created through a mutual vendor.  After the introduction was made the partnership was fueled by the desire to create the ultimate wakesurf board.  We were looking to find the best partner to discuss building wakesurfers, and Hyperlite was looking for the best materials and partner to build the top quality wakesurfers with – so it became a really organic connection.
