Mike Dowdy Speaks on his Mindset, Motivation, and Recent Knee Injury (Video)

Dowdy StareThere comes a time in every athletes career where they are faced with a choice. You either sit on the sidelines and watch, or you chase innovation. You chase your dreams, you set goals and keep working hard. No matter what life throws in your face, there is always a way around any obstacle. While this is such a basic concept, there are only a list of few elite athletes that truly understand this concept. People like Michael Jordan, Sydney Crosby, Shaun White, Ryan Villopoto, Kelly Slater, Michael Phelps, Tiger Woods, and others. Being an elite athlete doesn’t mean that you are just really good at a sport. There are many athletes that are really really good at a particular sport, but aren’t seen as “elite”. Being elite is taking that extra step. Having your mind, spirit, and body in sync. Working out for an extra 20 minutes, getting to bed early instead of going to the bar, waking up early so that you can get the butter sets, eating right, studying film, and the list could go on and on. When you’re elite, its your whole life. Pleasure quickly turns into business when you are on an elite stage. While some people are sitting on the sidelines, others are chasing new tricks and new gold medals. Thats who I want to be. I want to be just like Shaun White, Michael Jordan, and Tiger woods. I want to chase my dreams, and accomplish things that people say are impossible. I want to be the guy that when all odds are against him, he rises from the bottom and shocks everyone. When it’s time for me too forever hang up my board, I want to look back and know that I really went for it, and want to go down in history as one of the best ever. Now, will that ever happen? Will I ever be remembered as “The best ever?” Who knows. I will never know how people perceive me now and in 10 years. But Im going to do my best to never be forgotten. Read More >

Wakeskating the Banaue Rice Terraces | Red Bull Winch Sessions

Professional wakeskaters Brian Grubb (USA) and Dominik Preisner (GER) travelled to the Philippines to have an epic winch session at one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The famous rice terraces of Banaue are considered to be the Eighth Wonder of the World and were surely the perfect playground for an unique wakeskate session!

Respect for the environment was a priority from the beginning of this project! The team has assured that the plants and wildlife have neither been damaged nor disturbed at any time during the project. All agreements have been made together with the locals and under respect of their traditions and culture.

Daniel Grant at Phuket Wake Park

Daniel Grant’s name is becoming synonymous with amplitude and originality. Liquid Force‘s globe-trotting cable ripper made quite the name for himself in 2012 battling seasoned vets like Chad Sharp and Aaron Rathy at the Red Bull Wake Open last July.

Needless to say, this edit of Daniel shredding Phuket Wake Park in Thailand is mandatory viewing for any wake enthusiast. Props to Kim Yong Il on the edit.
