Fox Wake Presents | Bob Soven | A Tad Unconventional

 

Bob Soven

 

Fox Wake just dropped a gem of a video of the great ginger himself Bob Soven.  Do yourself a favor and watch this video and soak in all that is Bob.   “While wakeboarding is his passion and career, it has also been his gateway to living the life he wants just the way he wants: without limits or conventional structure.” -Fox Wake.

2015 Ronix Dealer Days – Recap

Another successful dealer days in the books!

Perfect Washington weather hovering around the mid-70’s, hallowed grounds at Radar Lake, and an exclusive insight to the 2015 Ronix Line.  What more could you ask for?

This year I got to take John “Bubba” Goza – our Trip to Radar Lake Sweepstakes Winner – up with me.  The Ronix Crew and myself included couldn’t have been luckier to spend a few awesome days with such a solid dude.  It truly was an honor to get to know Bubba and to ride with him.

Bubba and I got into Seattle late Thursday night and since we are both East Coast guys, we were up at the butt crack of dawn the next morning – ready to hear about the new gear and go straight into riding it.  We were about 3 hours early to breakfast, but I got my bowl of Lucky Charms cereal to start off the day – haha.

After Paul O’Brien (Ronix Owner) gave us the 2015 presentation, we went straight to the water to start riding.

After Bubba had a chance to demo a good grip of the 2015 product, he jumped on a 2015 Ronix Bandwagon Air Core and completely slayed it!  Even threw down a few tricks he hadn’t landed before.  Bubba came off the water a true believer in what camber can do.  You should give it a shot too!

Speaking of “Camber”, that is what I came back with from the 2014 Dealer Days – camber was last season’s game changer.  This year, it’s “Boots”.  Ronix has completely revamped their boots from the ground up and focused on what we all need to first when it comes to our set ups, our feet.

I don’t want to give too much away, but Ronix’s new “fit” through their Brainframe Technologies design is going to change how you look at how a boot should feel around your foot…forever.

The rest of the line looks great as well.  Along with significant improvements in Ronix’s boot line, they are dropping a few new revised shapes and cores throughout the line as well as a few new boards for both Boat and Cable riding.  Surfers are on point again as well!  We got to swing over to Lake Sammamish, WA and get some time out on the water.

I got to carve around on the ’15 Ronix Carbon PowerTail while Bubba went after the new ’15 Ronix Koal Simmer.  Check out it out!

Wake Park Triple Crown | Terminus Wake Park

Such a fun weekend with the Ambush Board Co. and BuyWake.com out at Terminus!  Ambush was well represented with team riders Blake Bishop, Justin Lee, Josh Zentmeyer, Quinn Silvernale.  Rob Corum and the WWA crew did a spectacular job with the event and host park Terminus has one of the nicest parks hands down.   We were equally as stoked as Justin Lee when we found out he was in the finals of Pro Men Cable!  Justin placed 4th, but landing your self in the finals with some of the best riders in the world isn’t too shabby.  Blake and Cross landed podium spots respectively in Open Men with a 2nd (Blake) and 3rd (Cross).  One of the biggest wins of the day was Remote Wakeskate / Ambush Team rider Josh Zentmeyer taking the top spot in Pro Wakeskate!  So many insane tricks went down that day and we can’t wait to see the final video of the stop.  For a break down in the finals check out the Alliance post.
