Sports dynasties are nothing new. The New York Yankees ruled baseball from for over 4 decades. In the 44 seasons from 1921 to 1964, the Yankees appeared in 29 World Series and won 20 of them. The Boston Celtics won 8 consecutive NBA Championships from 1959-1966 and added 3 more championships in 1957, 1968, and 1969 respectively. The Montreal Canadiens owned the NHL from the 1950s through the 1970s. And, the NFL had the Steelers of the 1970’s, the 49ers of the 1980s, and the Patriots of the new millennium. Oh, and how could you forget Kelly Slater surfing his way to an unprecedented 11 world titles from 1994-2011 (even with a faux retirement thrown in the middle). How does this relate to wakeboarding?
What a Weekend!
We just returned from arguably the best pro wake contest we’ve ever been to: the Slingshot sponsored event properly titled Yardsale held at Valdosta Wake Compound.
This invitation only event was run on a Sesitec System 2.0 course set up unlike anything we’ve ever seen! With one day of practice and three full days of Best Line, Best Feature, and Best Trick, there was no lack of bangers. Our close friend Jeff Mathis took some incredible images that we wanted to share. Watch the video now!
Peep these two hits from our Instagram:
You’re going to like this we promise. Our Team Rider and co-founder of Valdosta Wake Compound Quinn Silvernale gives us his take on the 2017 Terrain that he rides. Slingshot really stepped it up this year with the new Ballistic Park Base and made the board almost indestructible. Cole Vanthof headed down to VWC to get Quinn doing what he does best so watch the video and make sure you choose your size and binding combo wisely.

The Aliens Have Landed
The Valdosta Wake Compound crew has done it again. Not only are Ambush/BuyWake team riders, Quinn and Wes, really good at wakeboarding, apparently they speak with Aliens, too. They have been putting in so much time working on The Coalition Movie that it was a no-brainer for them to do something special for its release. You can be a part of history and own a 2017 Reflex The Coalition Edition LTD, featuring unique, hand-drawn art by Wesley Mark Jacobsen, available now at BuyWake.com
Peep the boys giving it a rip at the world famous Valdosta Wake Compound:
If that wasn’t good enough, right here you get the first sneak peak at The Coalition Movie first teaser! Dropping next month, the boys wanted to give you a little something…and they didn’t disappoint. Man, we are so stoked for our wake team right now!!!
Austin Pratt put together some clips of the #spacemob at Valdosta Wake Compound for the TIge My Wake contest. This core group of riders are constantly changing the game of Cable Riding and MORE. Help the boys out with a vote when the time comes as all that money will be poured back into the park for the riders! LET’S GO!!!!
