Q&A with Parker Borneman About the Hyperlite x Varial Surf Technology Collaboration

Parker Borneman is one of the many talents behind Varial Surf Technology, and with the new Hyperlite x Varial wakesurf boards that hit the market recently we wanted to pick his brain with a few questions.

Hyperlite x Varial Wakesurfers

BW: How did the Hyperlite x Varial partnership come about?  Did Hyperlite approach you with the idea, or did Varial already have the desire to cross over into the wakesurfing scene and Hyperlite was the brand you saw the most opportunity with?

PB: The relationship was created through a mutual vendor.  After the introduction was made the partnership was fueled by the desire to create the ultimate wakesurf board.  We were looking to find the best partner to discuss building wakesurfers, and Hyperlite was looking for the best materials and partner to build the top quality wakesurfers with – so it became a really organic connection.

Dylan Miller Discourse

Dylan Miller Discourse

Our good friend and BuyWake.com Team Rider Dylan Miller gives some insight into his life behind wakeboarding and talks about where he is from and the hard work to get to where he is at.  Dylan is one of the hardest working wakeboarders today and puts in the hard work in the off season more then most.  Watch Discourse a documenatry style edit that Taylor Hanley put together for Union Wakeboard Magazine.

 

Noah Flegel is on a new level. Wakesurfing with straps.

Noah has been blowing up social media for weeks posting short clips of him wakesurfing a custom made Hi-Fi with straps.  He has managed to land backflip 360’s and 720’s and he has more tricks on the way trust us.  This Saturday the PWT visits Utah and lets just say we’re already 99.9% positive this dude will be topping the podium.  Take a peak at this latest video mash up.  Unreal!

2017 Nautique Masters at Callaway Gardens

The 58th Nautique Masters

This past weekend we traveled to Pine Mountain, GA, to Callaway Gardens to attend the Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament presented by Nautique.  Ambush Board Co. has been at this event for 20 years with a merch tent with one of the best views of the action on Robin Lake.  Going into the weekend everyone was buzzing about what would the Pro Men’s Wakeboard podium end up looking like.  We got to see a four man final of Tony Iacconi, Cory Teunissen, Harley Clifford, and Mike Dowdy, and it was absolutely mental!  We predicted a Harley vs. Dowdy showdown and after seeing Cory crush it we knew it would be a toss-up because his run was mind-blowing.

The WWA has a really good highlight on Instagram: Read More >

Alliance Wake Hazed & Confused: Florida Bound

Alliance Wake Hazed & Confused, Part 3

The final installment of the Hazed and Confused video series from Alliance Wake didn’t disappoint, and neither did Part 2!  The crew stopped by Valdosta Wake Compound to shred with Cody Hesse, Wes Mark Jacobsen, and Cross Bearden, and the riding goes OFF!

Getting out of Texas started off slowly with the bus breaking down, but they got ‘er fixed up then headed to Valdosta, GA, to meet up with the homies at VWC.  After two solid days of camping and good times the whole crew headed into Florida to catch a morning set at Shaun Murray‘s to finish off one hell of a trip.  Thanks Sid for driving us around and putting up with us.  Cheers!
