Michael Dowdy Dropping 1080′s All Weekend (Video)

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 by | posted in Riders

Dirty Mike Dowdy spins well. This kid is blowing my mind. I can’t even remember what I thought was going to be possible behind a Nautique G23. People.. he is doing this wake to wake. I am still trying to figure out if this is the power of the D or the power of a G. Maybe a combination.

Yeah yeah yeah. If I was the king of wake like Harley, I would rock the Oakley TwoFace glasses like a boss. Turns out the lad from down under made a recent visit to Oakley’s corporate HQ and snagged a pair of the newest light weight shades. I can’t blame him. Check out the life he lives. Nothing but sunny days, skateboards, and water sports at his Florida residence.

With the release of the latest generation MasterCraft X-Star and the new Liquid Force Harley Pro Model Wakeboard shit is about to go down for 2013. Check back for more updates as they are released and keep an eye on Oakley’s YouTube channel as Jack Blodgett is always in the mix creating the edits that get us stoked for summer.

The Ultimate Wakesurf Wake

Wakesurfing 60 foot Boat from chad Sharpe on Vimeo.

What do you get when you combine 60 feet of diesel powered yacht, 1 wave runner and 2 wakesurf boards? You get the ultimate wakesurf experience! Posted by Chad Sharpe, this video details Sharpe and some of his Ronix buddies slashing it up behind the perfect wakesurfing machine.

Prepare to be jealous of a should high wake that can be surfed both sides simultaneously. And of course you can’t stop and start a boat that big, so that’s why you have a wave runner on tow-in duty to make sure the ride lasts forever.

Check it out after the break, just realize that you’ll be disappointed the next time you go out in your v-drive with 2,000lbs. of ballast.

Zane Schwenk CWB Mastercraft Pro Wakeboarder
Sure, his hair may have a little too much product in it for his age, maybe he did wear gloves a few years too long, and of course there’s no getting past the picture above, but you have to admit Zane Schwenk is legend in the sport of wakeboarding, and an all-around great guy.

The powers that be tend to agree, which is why they honored him with as a Legend of Wake at the 2008 Wake Awards last fall. The equivalent of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy’s, the Legend of Wake recognition highlights important people in the industry that have committed their career towards representing wakeboarding. Zane is exactly the kind of ambassador wakeboarding needs, and is a great public face for our sport.

Check out the video after the jump.

Kevin Henshaw Sheds Some Light On Why He Likes Malibu Boats

Posted on January 30th, 2009 by | posted in Boats, General, Riders

Liquid Force team rider and sponsored Malibu athlete Kevin Henshaw sat down with the camera recently for a little one-on-one time in his Wakesetter VLX. He talks about the fact that he’s been riding Malibu for years (he doesn’t remember exactly how long), and highlights a few of the key features he likes about his Malibu. There’s also some decent shots of Henshaw riding, although that’s definitely not the key focus on the video.

Apparently Malibu has produced more videos showcasing their team members on the water and in the boats, so we’ll try to dig up the others for you to enjoy.

In the meantime, hit the jump to watch the video.
