The Darwinism of Wakeskating

The Darwinism of Wakeskating

Remember the ol’ Sfumato days when wakeskating was predominately done behind a boat?  With the development of wakeskating and the increasing overall technicality of tricks being thrown everyday, it’s obvious why riders are choosing to take a different approach to riding.  And, of course, we having to drain your pockets to pay for filling up your boat is another obvious reason.  But, is riding behind a boat becoming a thing of the past for new, up-and-coming wakeskaters?

I do not necessarily think so, however, the influences of wakeskating are definitely taking more of a turn towards winch, cable, and PWC; and have ben doing so for quite some time.  Who can deny it, though?  You can learn so much behind the ski, and at a faster pace; you can hit spots that are considered unthinkable with a winch; and cables are popping up all over the place.  Getting out there behind the boat, unfortunately, seems as though it may become a lost art.

Making a Wakeboard with Scott Bouchard of Byerly and Hyperlite

Scott Bouchard’s name is synonymous with innovation, especially when it comes to wakeboard designs. He is the man behind the first finless Hyperlite Byerly pro model, the radical Hyperlite Byerly design from 2005 that featured four cut-away sections for water channelling, and countless other successful pro model wakeboards. His track record has earned the trust of top-tiered professional wakeboarders like JD Webb and Aaron Rathy, who recently commissioned Scott to R&D their 2014 shapes.

“After seeing Butch’s R&D facility first hand, then having him explain the wakeboard construction process, we could really see how much a Master he is at his craft”, explains BuyWake.com Creative Director, Derek Davis. “Butch probably understands hydrodynamics better than a Scientist.” Read More >

Aaron Rathy – The Tribute

Over the years, Canadian rider Aaron Rathy has proven himself a force on any discipline. Whether it be hitting moneybooters behind a G23 or pressing around OWC, Rathy is comfortable. Here’s an edit from Spencer Norris featuring Rathy at the helm, lighting up every feature he touches .

“I started this project a year ago with large intentions. Aaron Rathy and I had an elaborate story board, and covered all the bases as far as wakeboarding goes. Then my hard drive internally combusted and a years worth of footage was lost. It was a blow to the heart for the both of us and quite possibly the worst day of my career. This video represent the few pieces we were able to put back together. Thank you to Rathy for being a champion through this whole ordeal and showing me what it is to have true passion towards the sport you love.” – Spencer Norris Read More >
