2016 Hyperlite, Byerly, and Nautique! Oh, My!

Having Fun in the Sun with Nautique Boats

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go visit the Marine Max Buford location and meet up with our Nautique Boats family!  They were in town for a “Ride with the Pros” event then headed to the Nautique Wake Surf Nationals and guess what…they had a 2016 G23!  It was great catching up with Noah Flegel and Jimmy LaRiche, and our longtime friend and rep for Hyperlite/Byerly, Eddie Beverly.  Eddie, or “EBev,” as he is most known by, had a special treat for us to see with a quiver of 2016 Hyperlite and Byerly surfers.  We must say that these two brands knocked it out of the park this year.  Most notably Hyperlite has this insane new shape called “The Time Machine.”  Seriously, if you know anything about surfing this board is similar to the Tomo surfboards Vader series, but tweaked for wakesurfing.  If that weren’t enough, the Time Machine features a cork top for maximum grip, as well as all new Futures Fins!  The Byerly crew also have another banger with the 2016 Action, as it features Durashell construction with a EPS core and yes, Byerly Futures Fins!  You would be wise to add either one of these to your quiver.



Pretty cool, right!?  Ambush Board Co.‘s very own Lee Elliott really liked the Time Machine and even got in a little wake transfer on it.  Nautique NSS FTW!


In addition to all the surfers, EBev had the 2016 Murray and 2016 Webb (The Relapse) that our new friend, Caleb, got to ride!  He was beyond stoked and pretty hooked on the new Murray!  Check out a few of the photos we got that day:


It was an absolute blast hanging with the Nautique crew and EBev!  The option to choose and surf whatever we wanted had us feeling like a kids in a candy store (or…adults in a liquor store).  EBev had his blue G23 dialed in and getting to watch Noah and Jimmy shred is always a good time!

Well, the end of summer also means it’s the end of our time with the Ambush Board Co./BuyWake.com Nautique G21.  It has been such a great opportunity to represent Nautique and spread the joy of wakeboarding, wakeskating, and wakesurfing with our friends and customers.  The best part is now we get to design our next boat and you know we are going to have one of the best looking Nautique G21s ever seen!

Here is our previous G21:

Top 5 Wake Deals for 2015

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.

2. Liquid Force Kit

You could spend hours on picking out the perfect set up from Liquid Force or you could let us help.  Seriously, right now the 2015 Liquid Force line is one of the best we’ve seen in years.  Hot of the press the 2015 Tao wakeboard from Daniel Grant has been one of the most in demand wakeboards we sell (no, his tricks DO NOT COME WITH THE BOARD).  The 2015 Ultra Closed Toe bindings are a excellent choice to pair with the Tao, and every other board because they’re that comfortable.  Grab a 2015 Icon helmet and a 2015 Flex Comp vest and you’re half way to the Wake Park Triple Crown (or…at least…you’ll look like you are)!  We can’t forget our towed watersports crew and that’s why we threw in the 2015 Team Rope & Handle Combo.  Keep your hands on the handle and heart in the sky with this proper Liquid Force setup and save $181.50

3. Byerly Kit

You can’t talk about wakeboarding or wakeskating without mentioning one of the greatest, most legendary riders and brands of all time; Byerly.  The level of quality put into Byerly products has always been spot on.  Their base models are better than some companies’ pro models.  For example, the 2015 Standard is a great entry-level to intermediate binding that boasts great support and accommodates a wide range of foot sizes.  A staple in the line for years, the 2015 Monarch is also perfect no matter the skill set.  The Monarch wakeboard also features two Blunt fins, which are removable and provide added tracking and stability for beginners and intermediate riders.  Hang tight and do it right with the 2015 Assault handle and the 2015 Jacket mainline from Byerly for the ultimate rider-to-boat connection.  Scott Byerly has been sponsored by O’Neill for what seems like forever.  Byerly knows a good vest when he sees one, and so do we.  The 2015 Gooru Tech Comp Vest provides maximum comfort and tons of mobility when riding.  The $234.05 you’ll save on this rig will go a long way.  If you’re into saving and riding right, the Byerly kit is for you!

4. Ronix Kit

Arguably one of the most progressive companies in wakeboarding today, the Ronix crew puts out some of the best product year in and year out.  The 2015 line has more go-to items, but we started this kit off right with the 2015 One bindings by Danny Harf.  We can’t stress enough that comfort is key, and with Ronix and their new Brain Frame technology plus the high end boot Intuition + liners, you will fall in love your first set.  Don’t sleep on their life jackets, either.  They’re hands down some of the most comfortable we’ve ridden in, and the 2015 Bandwagon vest stood out the most this year.  Picking a wakeboard wasn’t a easy task, but the best bang for a hybrid boat/park board is for sure the 2015 Bill ATR “S”.  If it’s a weekend behind the boat or a few days a month at the cable park, the Bill promises to never let you down.  Speaking of boat – don’t trip, get a grip with the 2015 Envoy handle and 2015 R8 line, as this is our go to setup when we’re getting pulled behind our Nautique G21.  Sure, you can pick your own kit, but do you think you could beat the $308.84 in savings?  Show us what you got!

5. Slingshot Kit

Slingshot is one of those companies you just can’t help but root for!  Handmade in the USA and the ability to say “First in Flex” is something they promote and are extremely proud of.  The 2015 wakeboard line had some heavy hitters like the Shredtown, Oli, and Windsor, but one of the most wanted is their new cable-specific board the 2015 Terrain.  The block fusion sidewall and featureless base blended with the right amount of flex make this one of our favorites, and we’re certain it will be yours, too.  If you say Slingshot, it’s almost natural to think Shredtown.  The Shredtown crew board and bindings have a cult-like following for a reason; sublime comfort and performance.  The 2015 Shredtown bindings are known worldwide for their comfort.  It’s also pretty cool that you can pull your feet out and walk in the liners.  It’s the little things that make the biggest impact and the Shredtown boot will forever be a classic.
Tired of wakeboarding?  Just want to take a break for a bit?  Well, we have a treat for you in the form of the 2015 Ankel Biter wakesurfer.  Designed based off Slingshot’s Space Pickle platform, the Ankle Biter is dynamic and gives you the ability to catch all kinds of surf.  The 2015 offers control and stability, similar to a longboard, along with a double concave with an aggressive V-spine through that tail that gives you a looser transition edge to edge, so that the performance is more similar to a shortboard.  Now…all you have to think about is what exactly can you spend the $394.03 that you just saved by getting this Slingshot kit.

Ronix Review w/ Micah and Mertes

2015 Ronix Kinetik Project & El Von Videl Schnook Review!

Ronix Wakeboardsput a huge amount of research and development into their products and it shows.  Two of the best selling and most popular wakeboards in the 2015 lineup are the Kinetik Project and the El Von Videl Schnook.  We decided to send Ambush Board Co. and BuyWake.com employees Micah and Mertes to our local spot, Terminus Wake Park, for a little shred session and see how the two boards feel firsthand.  Don’t be fooled by the hilarious good times and all the high fives, these dudes are all business!  Watch the video below and read for yourself how they feel about the boards.


The Ronix 2015 Kinetik Project

“Brand new for 2015, the Ronix Kinetik Project is one of the best and most innovative cable boards I have ever ridden.  After a few laps around the park the first thing I noticed was how responsive and how alive the board felt under my feet.  The mixture of foam and wood makes the board super light, but also very durable.  The thing that stood out the most for me was how much pop that board has out of the water.  The two rocker lines make the board explode out of the water.  One of the coolest things is how responsive this board was on features.  The stored energy in the board makes it snap off  and on rails like a breeze.

“The board is nice and soft in the tip and tail, making presses look amazing, but it is also stiff enough in between your feet for a solid feel that makes landings off the kicker a bit easier on your knees.  Another cool thing about this board is the concave in the nose and tail.  With more round rails showing up and being built at cable parks all over the world the concave helps the board lock into presses on the rail and not slip out.  So, all in all this board is one of the most fun boards I have ever ridden and puts a smile on my face and stoke in my heart.  If you want the best on the water fun you could ever experience, grab a Kenetik Project and see for yourself.  I promise you won’t be sorry.”

-Micah Ingalls


The Ronix 2015 El Von Videl Schnook

“The El Von Videl Schnook is for the all around cable park shredder.  This board has the most locked in landing off all kickers and rails.  What I mean by this is the feeling you get when you land is “bolts”!  There’s hardly any bouncing around after you hit the water.  Another feature of this board I really like is the very durable base is slick and catch free.

“Like the Kinetic Project, the El Von Videl Schnook also has concave in the nose and tail for easy lock-ins on round rails.  Overall this board rips and rides fast.  S,o if you are trying to go big and charging everyday at the park, I definitely recommend the El Von Videl Schnook.”
