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 >

Valdosta Yard Sale

The Valdosta Yard Sale is a celebration of wakeboarding brought to you by Rockstar Energy Drink, Slingshot Wakeboards, Sesitec,, and many more.  Located at the Valdosta Wake Compound in South Georgia, the Yard Sale will take place April 20th-23rd on VWC’s pro Sesitec System 2.0 course.  This event will be an invitational contest bringing together 35 of the world’s best park/urban riders for a long weekend of board shreddin’, live music, and, most importantly, GOOD VIBES.

In addition to the invites, there will be an open qualifier taking place on the full cable Thursday, April 20th in which ANYONE is welcome to register and compete for the chance to win 1 of 5 wildcard spots to join the crew under the System 2.0.  We will also be hosting a Pro Women’s contest (full cable best lap) on Friday, April 21st, because we LOVE the ladies, and feel that the more love for park riding we can put in one place, the better.  While we’re on that topic, the first stop of The Wakeskate Tour will also be going down under the exclusive wakeskate Sesitec System 2.0 course.  This is sure to be a weekend of EPIC proportions, so mark your calendars because YOU’RE INVITED.  That’s right, the Yard Sale/Wakeskate Tour will of course be open to the public and the full cable will be spinning every day for friends and family members to get wet and enjoy this one-of-a-kind 2017 season kickoff.

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.


Alex Graydon “ALa-Cruzin” UNCUT Edit Video

Alex and Cole produced one of the heaviest online videos of 2016.  The video, “ALa-Crusin” was released in Orlando, FL for the 2016 Surf Expo inside the Alliance Wake booth.  To date the video has over 5,700 views and is still the talk of the town.  Take a peak at some of the never-before-seen footage and some super heavy spills and thrills.  Space Rocket Shapes FTW.
