2016 Nautique Masters Tournament

Stars on the Water, Warriors in the Sun!

What a weekend!  The 57th Nautique Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament was held at the prestigious Callaway Gardens on the legendary Robin Lake.  This year was a special one for a few reasons, but…most notably, it was Lee Elliott’s 19th Masters and Eddie Beverly’s 31st!  That’s a combined 50 years between the two of them!  As a thank you, we whipped up this gem of a photo and presented it to them.

Lee and Eddie's 50th Masters

On Friday every year Nautique puts on the “Nautique Open” golf tournament that features a bunch of athletes and industry friends.  The golf tournament is equally as important to some of the riders as the on-water events.  Seriously, it’s always fun getting paired up with friends and leveling the playing field off the water.  Look, I’m not throwing any backside 7s anytime soon, but I’ll put up a solid fight on the course and send a few over 300 yards down the pipe.  This year Ambush Board Co./BuyWake.com Team Rider, Cole Vanthof, came with us and put together a fun little Instagram video.

2016 Shredtown Jamboree Video

It Goes Down at Shredtown

The time has come for all of us wake enthusiasts to get our minds blown from watching the worlds best wakeboarders.  The Shredtown Jamboree is a invite only event held at the Shredtown ranch near Dallas, TX.  Our BuyWake Team Riders Andrew, Davis, and Chris are arguably the most talented winch and park riders in the game today, and the obstacles they build are legendary to say the lease.  Inviting the worlds most talented park riders just so happened to include some of our other Team Riders; Dylan Miller, Quinn Silvernale, Blake Bishop, Wesley Mark Jacobsen, and Felix Georgii.  Yup, that’s eight total BuyWake/Ambush riders in a 15-rider invite.  The odds were good that one of our boys would come out on top.  This year it was Quinn who took home the Best Line Award!  The surprise award of the night was most certainly the “Dad Cam” award that our boy Cole Vanthof won.  Cole kept the boys in his sights day and night with his sick zooms and night vision.  Being a badass wakeboarder is OK, but…if you also have video skills to go along with it, you’re basically a game-changer.  Steffen Vollert is a master at both wake and video and put together one of the coolest videos ever!  Sit back with a cold one and watch all action go down!

2015 Surf Expo with BuyWake.com

BuyWake.com visits Orlando,FL for 2015 Surf Expo…aka Bro Party

 

Hotel View of Surf Expo

So every year the water sports industry descends upon Orlando for Surf Expo. Retailers from across the globe come to see new product and get one on one time with some of the brands. We always like getting to Expo and seeing all our friends from brands and especially some of our Team Riders. This year we saw some of the coolest booths ever! Liquid Force had a clean open aired booth and was laced with their entire line. Some highlights were seeing the 2016 LTD boards and boots with the LF’N Awesome theme to it! Our good friend Harley Clifford showed us his 2016 Remedy and his 2016 LTD product.

Getting to see the rest of the line in person really affirmed our thoughts that you guys are going to love next years product. Peep some of the Boards, Bindings, and Surfers we saw. Read More >
