Blake Bishop

Blake dialing in the System 2.0

Recently, a few of the Ambush Board Co. and BuyWake.com Team Riders ran out of town to visit fellow team rider Blake Bishop at his private cable park.  You may or may not have heard of this kid, but one thing is certain – you will remember his name.  Blake is an amazing 16 year old kid with the seasoned skills of a veteran and is backed by Slingshot Wake.  Cole Vanthof sat down with Blake and probed his brain with some random questions.  Take a minute to get to know this up and coming Georgia Boy.

1.Who is Blake Bishop?
I’m a 17 year old wakeboarder from Atlanta, Georgia.

2. What are your thoughts on the new generation of wakeboarders?
The new generation is coming in hot. Everyone has new and creative rail hits these days so I can only imagine what’s in store for the future. Read More >

The New Slingshot Wakeboard That Every Girl Wants!

Corrie Wilson

“I love how forgiving the Pearl is” – Corrie Wilson

Corrie has been shredding the Slingshot Pearl for years and she absolutely loves it.  If you were fortunate enough to see The Voyage then you know how good she rides!  One of her newest adventures is she now works for The World Wakeboard Association (The WWA) to help market and promote all the events for the season.  To top that off she also competes in the women’s division and is a contender a just about every stop!  Basically, Corrie is a rockstar and if she is backing the Pearl then you know it’s good!

Are you a girl looking to get into wakeboarding? Do you want a board that can shred behind the boat and your local cable park? If your answer is yes, then the 2015 Slingshot Pearl is for you.  Do you want the total package?  Pair the Pearl with the Jewel bindings for the ultimate wakeboard set up! Read More >

Scott Stewart Interview | The Resurgence of Boat Riding

Behind the Rider | Scott Stewart

Scott Stewart is one of those riders that makes you second guess your skills behind the boat.  Scott has a knack for going big…really big, but in the most stylish way possible.  Over five years ago he won the BuyWake.com Global Rider Search V2 and his video edit had the internet buzzing.  Since then Scott has grown more mature personally and his riding has strikingly improved.  His passion for wakeboarding is obvious and his commitment to keeping style and amplitude his main focus.  Those are just some of the reasons why we like him.

We threw some Qs at Scott Stewart and he threw some As back at us.  Check it out.

BW: What athletic background do you have?  Before wakeboarding did you play any competitive sports?
SS: I grew up skateboarding and snowboarding.  I was never really into any team sports, but I played football for a few years. Read More >

The Next Evolution in 2.0

Our good friend and Team Rider – Quinn Silvernale posted this gem of a instagram post recently and it really got us going.  See the System 2.0 is at the forward movement in progressive wake right now.  The System 2.0 is somewhat inexpensive and can be set up literally anywhere you choose.  After seeing this video it will have you saying “Checkout this System 2.OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THIS”.  The multi pool and gaps in this video show that something big….really big is about to go down this year!

We are really stoked for what Quinn has going on at his new full cable at Valdosta Wake Compound and you are most defiantly going to see us there soon!  Come join us!

Keith Lyman in Action

Keith Lyman recently strapped into his re-designed Slingshot pro model to cut around a bit. Keith hasn’t missed a beat on the water – same Keith, same style, same integrity. Press play and enjoy this rare chance to see Keith rip out on the water.

“We were lucky enough to catch up with Keith recently and take a ride with him on his new 2014 pro Model. The man has still got it…Watch him in action and hear what he has to say about the completely re-designed 2014 Lyman Pro Model.” – Slingshot Wake

Note: Keith retired from wakeboarding in May of 2011 to pursue a career and lifelong goal of serving in the armed forces. More info on Keith and his retirement.
