2017 Hyperlite Shreducation with BuyWake.com

#shreducation17 Was a Huge Success!

Once a year Hyperlite and Byerly Boards invite their top dealers to make their way down to sunny Florida for a few days to shreducation to learn about the brands with hands-on clinics and demos and get the full personal treatment.  This year we headed down to the 4th annual Shreducation to hang out with our longtime friend and rep Eddie Beverly and check out the scene.  It’s truly amazing the amount of R&D and technology that Hyperlite and Byerly Boards put into their product.  We started off with visiting the surfing legend and infamous shaper Scott “Butch” Buchard at his studio in Satellite Beach, Florida.  After a morning of watching and listening to Butch talk about all that goes into making a wakeboard and some of his wakesurfer designs we headed out on the Intracoastal for a chance to ride all the new 2017 product.  Check out some of the killer photos that Rodrigo Donoso took from the day!

2016 Surf Expo – Premiers and Beers and Gear

BuyWake.com Does Surf Expo

Once a year major players in the wake, surf, and skate communities travel to Orlando, Florida, for the madness that is Surf Expo.  Every established brand is there and every new brand with their new product is there to say, “Hey, look at me!”  As the well-established wake-specific ecommerce business that we are, we do our part and attend for a few reasons.  This year one of the biggest reasons to attend was to be a part of the Alliance Wake Premiers and Beers video releases.  Our team rider and up-and-coming videographer, Cole Vanthof, has been working on a few projects that we and Ambush Board Co. wanted to share with the world.

The main video is the final project of a series from the boys down at Valdosta Wake Compound.   The Coalition web edit series that the boys did this past year was hot fire…so it only made sense to made The Coalition The Movie.  Cole not only had his hand in filming, but he also had some sick riding in it as well.  Next up was a video project we did with team rider, Alex Graydon.  Cole spent two months with Alex filming all around his home in Alabama.  Yes, Alabama has some pretty sweet lakes, and Alex has a home Sesitec 2.0 setup called The Woods.  The appropriately titled ALa-Cruzin was a huge success and everyone in attendance went wild.  You can now view it in its entirety HERE on Alliance.  Another video project Cole had been working on was with team rider and rising young buck, Blake Bishop, fittingly titled UNTAMED.  Cole and Blake filmed at #BTOWNCOMPOUND, Blake’s personal cable park, and hit some heavy winch missions from the Atlanta streets to the Allatoona creeks.  It’s a super diverse video and the crowd’s reaction was at an all-time high!  Everyone was feeling the film and its trap track that went so perfectly with the edit.  If you know Blake, then you’ll understand the music no doubt.  Alliance Wake will be dropping the full-length part on Monday, September 19th, so…get ready.

Wakeboard History with Eddie Beverly

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!

Georgia Wake Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Action Event Group, LLC Announces 2016 Amateur Georgia Wake Tour

Atlanta, Georgia (January 12, 2016) – Action Event Group, LLC announced today the inaugural season of the 2016 Georgia Wake
Series, a World Wakeboard Association sanctioned tour and state championship. The five stop tour will deliver events across the state
of Georgia, world class riding conditions and tow boats, a format for riders of all skill levels and disciplines, a stop at Atlanta’s premier
wake-park, and the largest collection of prizes ever seen in Georgia wakeboarding.
Home to one of the highest concentrations of wake-enthusiasts in the country, Georgia has long been in need of a refreshed amateur
wakeboard tour – a tour that acts as a natural step to Regional, National, and Professional events, and a tour that gives back to the
participants. With local and industry support, the Georgia Wake Series will fulfill these needs by providing an avenue for competition,
camaraderie, and fun for the many families who create the fabric of the wake community.
The Georgia Wake Series will debut on a private wakeboard lake in Rome, ensuring pristine conditions for all participants. Next, the
tour will make its way to the towers and turf of Terminus Wake Park, integrating the progressive segment of cable riding. The tour will
then travel south to the glassy waters of the Flint River for the largest grassroots charity tournament in the state, WakeFest GA. Lake
Lanier’s Rowing Venue routes the tour back north for the fourth stop. The Rowing Venue is no-wake with special access only to the
Georgia Wake Series. Georgia’s 2016 season concludes with the Georgia Wake Series State Championship, a two-day finale crowning
the winners of the season. And to the victors go the spoils.
For 2016, the Georgia Wake Series is carrying more than $10,000.00 in prizes alone from companies like Ambush Board Co,
WaterSports Central, Pull Watersports, GA Wakeboard Lessons, CWB, Oakley, Terminus Wake Park, and Hyperlite. If that’s not
enough, Liquid Force has a spot up for grabs on their regional team in 2017- offered to the most deserving rider in this year’s
series. Who knows. You didn’t know about us until now; there may be another trick or two up our sleeve. Either way, the Georgia Wake
Series is excited for 2016 and looks forward to having you, your family and your friends for a season of fun, family friendly events.
