Harley is starting off 2016 exactly how he wanted. Winning. The level of tricks going down between him, Mike Dowdy, Dean Smith and others is astonishing. This year’s Nautique Wake Open at Orlando Watersports Complex featured a packed crowd of onlookers and the best wakeboarders and wakeskaters in the world. Legend JD Webb even through down and proved that he still has what it take stop be on the podium.
Well don’t call it a comeback, but our man Harley already has a win under his belt to start this 2016 season. Another familiar face on the podium is our boy Mike Dowdy and that means one thing….it’s ON this year. We heard there were plenty of 1080 variations plus some double flips (naturally right?) from the Moomba Masters so as soon as winning videos are up will will post them. Cheers to the Nautique crew from putting on another epic contest down under. Congrats boys can’t wait to see you guys stateside soon!
Looks like wakeboarding is in good hands starting in 2016! If you are looking to get into competitive wake with your peers then you will want to give this a shot! Only a few stops this year, but we are sure there will be more in the future!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Action Event Group, LLC Announces 2016 Amateur Georgia Wake Tour
Atlanta, Georgia (January 12, 2016) – Action Event Group, LLC announced today the inaugural season of the 2016 Georgia Wake
Series, a World Wakeboard Association sanctioned tour and state championship. The five stop tour will deliver events across the state
of Georgia, world class riding conditions and tow boats, a format for riders of all skill levels and disciplines, a stop at Atlanta’s premier
wake-park, and the largest collection of prizes ever seen in Georgia wakeboarding.
Home to one of the highest concentrations of wake-enthusiasts in the country, Georgia has long been in need of a refreshed amateur
wakeboard tour – a tour that acts as a natural step to Regional, National, and Professional events, and a tour that gives back to the
participants. With local and industry support, the Georgia Wake Series will fulfill these needs by providing an avenue for competition,
camaraderie, and fun for the many families who create the fabric of the wake community.
The Georgia Wake Series will debut on a private wakeboard lake in Rome, ensuring pristine conditions for all participants. Next, the
tour will make its way to the towers and turf of Terminus Wake Park, integrating the progressive segment of cable riding. The tour will
then travel south to the glassy waters of the Flint River for the largest grassroots charity tournament in the state, WakeFest GA. Lake
Lanier’s Rowing Venue routes the tour back north for the fourth stop. The Rowing Venue is no-wake with special access only to the
Georgia Wake Series. Georgia’s 2016 season concludes with the Georgia Wake Series State Championship, a two-day finale crowning
the winners of the season. And to the victors go the spoils.
For 2016, the Georgia Wake Series is carrying more than $10,000.00 in prizes alone from companies like Ambush Board Co,
WaterSports Central, Pull Watersports, GA Wakeboard Lessons, CWB, Oakley, Terminus Wake Park, and Hyperlite. If that’s not
enough, Liquid Force has a spot up for grabs on their regional team in 2017- offered to the most deserving rider in this year’s
series. Who knows. You didn’t know about us until now; there may be another trick or two up our sleeve. Either way, the Georgia Wake
Series is excited for 2016 and looks forward to having you, your family and your friends for a season of fun, family friendly events.
Keep in contact for updates, new sponsors, registration, and more! Follow the Georgia Wake Series on Facebook, Instagram, and
Twitter. For information on how to participate and support, visit www.gawakeseries.com.
BuyWake.com visits Orlando,FL for 2015 Surf Expo…aka Bro Party
So every year the water sports industry descends upon Orlando for Surf Expo. Retailers from across the globe come to see new product and get one on one time with some of the brands. We always like getting to Expo and seeing all our friends from brands and especially some of our Team Riders. This year we saw some of the coolest booths ever! Liquid Force had a clean open aired booth and was laced with their entire line. Some highlights were seeing the 2016 LTD boards and boots with the LF’N Awesome theme to it! Our good friend Harley Clifford showed us his 2016 Remedy and his 2016 LTD product.
Getting to see the rest of the line in person really affirmed our thoughts that you guys are going to love next years product. Peep some of the Boards, Bindings, and Surfers we saw.
Get the best deal on brand new 2015 wake product and keep some extra cash!
We put together some of the best products and deals from each of the top brands in the industry just for you. It goes without saying that having the right gear at the best price is what we provide 24/7/365.
1. Hyperlite Kit
Hot out the gate one of the baddest boards for 2015 is the 2015 Hyperlite Union. Graeme Burress showed us all what this board can do at every cable park he visited. Another popular item this year that’s packed with comfort are the 2015 Team Closed Toe bindings. If you don’t start with the proper footwear, everything else goes downhill. Life vests aren’t always the most fashion things, but the 2015 Flex Vest looks great and provides plenty of movement and its U.S. Coast Guard approved rating means that it could save your life at the cable park or behind the boat. Speaking of boat, if you’re rocking behind a Nautique or anything with a motor pick up this great 2015 Webb Handle and pair it with the 2015 X-Line for the best connection in wakeboarding. Add it all up and you’ll save $361.05…that’s a lot of gas money.
