Ronix Teams Up With LA Gear For Limited Edition Wakeboards

Posted on July 21st, 2008 by | posted in General

You remember LA Gear right? They made those shoes all the cool kids wore that had lights in the heel that flashed whenever you took a step? Now you can have your chance at revenge and prove to everyone you’re not the dork you were in grade school.

Ronix has released two new boards the DHV1 and CSV1 based on the familiar One and Covin series wakeboards, respectively. And while they didn’t actually work with LA Gear on these new wakeboards, Ronix has incorporated a piezo-electric diode that lights up when you hit the wake hard enough.

The new boards feature the same shape as the signature lines they’re based on, but make use of a high end “Italian Dark Core” for a lighter and stiffer board. If you currently ride a Ronix One or Covin wakeboard, but wish it weighed just a little less and had more pop, these may be just what you’ve been waiting for.

The Ronix DHV1 and Ronix CSV1 wakeboards retail for $599.99 and can purchased through Wakeside.comShop at Wakeside.com.

Yeah, neither had we, but you should check it out. In reality the main purpose is probably just as a marketing tool for Ronix, but it still has some original thoughts from the author, as well as some great pictures taken while Chad is out and about shooting with his buddies.

Chad Sharpe Ronix Blog

It’s pretty cool to get updates directly from someone as influential as Chad, especially when he’s got guys like Danny Harf, Erik Ruck and Jeff McKee, among others stopping for for an impromptu set.

Basically, it boils down to the fact that you should add Chad’s blog to your list of places to check out.

Check Out The Butter Effect on FUEL TV

Posted on April 13th, 2007 by | posted in General, Media


Wakeboarding gets another shot at primetime on Fuel TV’s Insane Cinema program throughout the month of April. Sure, it’s not a major network, but anytime you can catch someone riding a wakeboard and it’s not part of some cheesy commercial, that’s a good thing for the sport.

So program your DVR if you haven’t already seen this unique film from Sean Kilgus and if you have seen it, make sure you remind all of your buddies that haven’t to check out Fuel TV this month.

Check out all of the details, along with a preview of the video after the jump.
