Wakeboard History 101
A Phone Interview with Eddie Beverly
Eddie Beverly has been our Hyperlite rep since day one. We have grown our business and our friendship together over the years, all the while listening to him tell some of the funniest and most captivating and informative stories. The one thing we want you all to know is that Eddie is the truth. This guy was and is a part of wakeboarding history, having been there when the first wakeboard was made and when the term “wakeboard” was coined. Eddie has been committed to growing the sport since its birth, and has played a key role in developing the Hyperlite brand. Can you imagine the things he has seen while traveling with the legends Parks Bonifay and Scott Byerly? Dude is a legend…surrounded by legends. Eddie has been doing Hyperlite for 30 years. He is most likely more physically fit then you, and has a way better tan. We want to share with you a few of his stories, and not so much in a podcast format, but in what a typical phone conversation would be like. There are a few gems in this 18+ minute conversation…so pay close attention. I could have let him talk for hours on end, but I’m thinking about making a few more of these in the future with even better, funnier stories. Eddie is in Seattle right now checking out the 2017 Hyperlite line, and I can’t wait for him to get back and get us some sneak peaks of the goods!
Sit back and listen to a little wakeboarding history and other fun stories with me and Eddie. Enjoy!
