Scott has a much anticipated video that finally dropped and it’s fantastic! Known for his silky smooth riding style of slayish’s and going big this new project “For Love Of The Game” didn’t disappoint. Take a few moments to watch one of the best videos of the year!
“A Scott Stewart project filmed by John Jeffries and edited by Jimmy McClure for those who do it for the love of the game. Huge thanks to The Boarding School for all the support.” – Jimmy McClure
Scott Stewart is one of those riders that makes you second guess your skills behind the boat. Scott has a knack for going big…really big, but in the most stylish way possible. Over five years ago he won the BuyWake.com Global Rider Search V2 and his video edit had the internet buzzing. Since then Scott has grown more mature personally and his riding has strikingly improved. His passion for wakeboarding is obvious and his commitment to keeping style and amplitude his main focus. Those are just some of the reasons why we like him.
We threw some Qs at Scott Stewart and he threw some As back at us. Check it out.
BW: What athletic background do you have? Before wakeboarding did you play any competitive sports? SS: I grew up skateboarding and snowboarding. I was never really into any team sports, but I played football for a few years.
BW: Do you ever get out and rip a wakeskate set? Do you skate? SS: I used to wakeskate a little bit, but now when I get a sesh, I just want to ride my board. I skate a decent amount, not at much as I used to. But, slowly working on a new ramp!
BW: Describe the Blue Pill. What does it mean to you to design your own wakeboard? How does it feel to ride a board that you had so much design input on? SS: The Blue Pill is the best board I have ever ridden. I know I’m a bit biased since Tony Logosz (owner of Slingshot) and I shaped it for my needs, but she rips!
It’s an aggressive ride, yet still an easy board to handle. Quickest edge-to-edge transfer with a narrower overall profile, full double concave with a mellow center spine down the whole deck. It ads to that quick edge transfer and makes landings cush. The Naca Tech in the tip and tail add the extra grip and control in high speed turns I wanted. I am thankful for the opportunity to help design a board that is focused towards big wake riding. It means a lot that Slingshot believed in me and have given me a chance to step up. It’s really nice to have gear that helps you grow!
BW: What are your current thoughts on competitive wakeboarding? This year there are more wakeboarding contests with PWT coming back plus events like the Nautique Wake Series and more . Is Wake in a good state? Read More >
We’re pleased to announce that BuyWake.com Global Rider Search 2.0 winner, Scott Stewart, has joined forces with Slingshot for the 2014 season. Scott’s unique style of big wake riding will add just the right amount of spice to the current Slingshot roster. Keep your eyes peeled for more from Scott and Slingshot throughout the season to come.
Here’s an inside glimpse into one of the Hyperlite team traditions, the annual Spring team gathering. Here’s what the boys have to say:
“Every spring the Hyperlite Wakeboard crew gets together to ride our new Wakeboards, take some photos and film for videos.” Hyperlite explains. “Here Rusty and Trever have a magical GoPro set, Raimi stomps a solid off axis 7, Mike and Trever both bend their knees, JD does two flips in one and Stewart almost pays the piper.”
