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.

3. Which riders out there do people need to be on the “lookout” for?
Well, Graeme Burress is one. Always so intense, it just blows my mind. Also Daniel Grant, he always been insane on a wakeboard and wakeskate.

4. What made you want to join Slingshot Wake?
They are first in flex. It’s O.G

I can do what I want, when I want, and how I want.

6. What is Choomah Skwad?

It’s an Elite group of savages.

7. Besides yours, which Georgia cable park do you like most?
Valdosta Wake Compound for sure. They have rabbits on their land gap, D.I.Y Skate Park, and all their rails are hand made. What more do you need?

8. What inspires you the most?
I would say music, Brandon Bishop aka “The Godfather” and the GBP Gremlinz. Look them up, you wont regret it.

9. Which do you enjoy riding more: Boat riding, Kickers or Rails?
Rails because the possibilities are endless.

10. Where do you want to be in 5 years?
Wakeboarding with the all homies and progressing every damn day!
