BuyWake.com Team Riders Top the Podium

Harley Clifford Wins PWT Stop #1

What a weekend!   In case you missed it, the first stop of the 2017 Pro Wake Tour was in Birmingham, Alabama and competitive wakeboarding is at an all-time high right now.  BuyWake.com team riders Harley Clifford and Mike Dowdy are total warriors battling against each other on the water this year.  One of the heaviest and hardest things to do after injury in get back to riding shape, and both Mike and Harley took no days off in the off-season rebuilding their bodies to peak performance.  If you follow them on Instagram you can see the insane tricks they have in their respective arsenals, and they’re bringing these tricks to the tour.  Congrats to Harley for winning the 1st stop of PWT, but with the way Mike is riding he is sure to take a win very soon (only 1.17 points separated them…so you know it’s coming).

Valdosta Wake Compound Wake Foiler Session

Today the temperature here in beautiful Kennesaw, GA is 82° and you know what that means. It means we are nearly amidst full-on WAKE season. The rising temperature prompted us to expand our quiver of boards to ride. From different wakeboards, wakeskates, and wakesurfers we have something new for everyone to try in our Nautique GS22. Yep, that also includes the new Slingshot Wake Foiler. No matter what type of rider you are, one thing is for sure…nothing is quite like floating smoothly and silently over the water!

Slingshot Wake Foiler Package

Designed for easy learning and endless progression, the foil gives lift at low speeds and has a bottom-heavy weight for stability. This promotes a predictive, easy handling foil which  is perfect for everyone to enjoy.  It even comes with two different length foils to help you unlock the foiler’s full potential as you progress from the beginner foil to the advanced foil!

Young Guns – Blake Bishop & Victor Salmon at Thai Wake Park

Words and video edit by Steffen Vollert

Almost 2 years ago I went to Bangkok to shoot a online part with Victor Salmon, but only a day before I arrived to Thai Wake Park Victor injured his ankle and the whole project was put on hold.

Earlier this year, on my way back home from Australia, I thought it would be a good idea to stop in Bangkok for a week to meet up with him again and finally make it happen.
Luckily Blake Bishop was around at that time too so I was confident to bang out an incredible, next level edit with Slingshot’s Young guns.

With high expectations we started our 5 days of shooting and I was blown away by both of their riding. The first “warmup“ session with Victor on the pipes ( around 2:40 ) was just incredible; almost every shot was a first try. You can tell that he knows his home cable like no one else and his skill on this very technical setup has progressed a lot since I saw him the last time.  With his style, Blake brought in the perfect mix. He is one of the most stylish riders I know of and re-viewing his shots after the long days was a great pleasure. His tricks on the double kink rail and the following Indy roll to blind starting around 1:00 were by far my favorite. Read More >

For the Girls #BeBoldForChange – By Nicola Butler

Inspire, Dream, Believe, and Succeed.

We’ve always been in support of women’s wakeboarding and wakeskating.  You can look at the statistics and see that it’s not a 50/50 participation because there are more men that ride then women, but that doesn’t mean any brand, media, or peers should treat them any differently.  Look we get it…it’s 2017 and times are indeed changing.  Voices will be heard and none more powerful and direct than our Team Rider Nicoal Butler’s.  Watch the video “For The Girls” that Nicola Butler did featuring a heavy dose of badass girls doing badass things.

UNTAMED UnCut – Blake Bishop

Untamed UnCut

Blake Bishop and Cole Vanthof teamed up with us and Ambush Board Co. to produce a unique video that showcases Blake and his unique style.  The entire project only took a month.  They found unique winch spots that no one has hit before.  And…of course, Blake was destroying his home park in between winch missions.  The final UNTAMED video has yielded over 26,000 views and this new UNCUT edit with never-before-seen clips is sure to generate the same kind of buzz.
