Hyperlite Marek Wakeboard

It looks like Alliance Wake scored some new intel, in addition to what we brought you last week, on Rusty Malinoski’s new Hyperlite MAREK pro-model wakeboard. In addition to some more specs, they’ve also scooped the first look at the wakeboards official graphics, in addition to the source behind the MAREK (apparently all caps is the official way of writing it) name. Here’s the reader’s digest version of what we know so far:

  • The MAREK is a bigger board, being offered in 136cm, 141cm and 146cm sizes.
  • With a fully machined NOVA core, the MAREK will be part of the D.I.N.E. line.
  • Designed for an aggressive rider that doesn’t mind a little extra weight
  • Named after Rusty’s first-born son, Merek Jaxon Malinoski.
The Hyperlite MAREK wakeboard will be available on May 15, 2008 at your local Hyperlite dealer. For all of the technical specs and additional information on the MAREK, hit the jump.

Rusty Malinoski Hyperlite Marek Pro Model Wakeboard

Posted on April 10th, 2008 by | posted in General

Rusty Malinoski Hyperlite Marek Pro Model

Rusty Malinoski’s new Hyperlite pro model has to be one of the most anticipated new wakeboards the industry has ever seen. We were the first with news of the Canadian’s new board, and now that it has been over a year, it’s apparent that Rusty and Hyperlite are taking their time to perfect the finished shape.

Today we get a little encouragement that the wait is almost over though, along with some extra information about what we can expect from Hyperlite’s newest shape. In addition to the details we announced last February, we know that Rusty’s pro model will be named the Marek, and will feature Hyperlite’s new DINE technology. Hyperlite has deployed this lightweight core, which results in a lighter, more durable and lively board, on the top-of-the-line Hyperlite Sub VI and Hyperlite Murray wakeboards, proving that Rusty is a cornerstone of the Hyperlite brand.

With a release date of May 15th, we won’t have long to wait before the Marek is ready to ride, and if your style matches the aggressive nature of Rusty’s riding, you can be sure it will be to your liking.

Hyperlite Kicks Off Their Pay It Forward Promo

Hyperlite Pay It Forward

When Shaun Murray first vocalized his Pay It Forward idea, the response from wakeboarders hoping to get a chance to ride his new board was overwhelming. After some initial confusion about the particulars of the program, how the boards would be tracked, and when they would go to the first riders, it looks like the time is coming soon.

Shaun recently posted the pictures in the attached gallery on WakeWorld of him getting the boards ready to go out to their first riders. Hyperlite even saw fit to include Sub 6 boxes with each of the boards to ensure they will survive multiple trips through your local mail carriers grubby hands.

If you’re not already on the list, head over to WakeWorld and get signed up for your chance to rider Murray’s latest and greatest Hyeprlite creations.

Footage Released of Rusty Wakeboard Documentary Film

Posted on March 24th, 2008 by | posted in General, Media, Riders

Rusty MaloniskiClick on above image to view video

Few wakeboarders are as deserving of a feature documentary as Rusty Malinoski. From an undiscovered Canadian rider, to an up-and-comer struggling to get a ride with a major manufacturer, Rusty has remained focused and dedicated to his cause.

Of course we all know the result of his determination; the run he’s been on for the last 18 months has been nothing short of incredible. From his careful training regimine to his committed work ethic that has resulted in a string of 1080s and a new pro-model from Hyperlite, Rusty is a great reminder of what is possible with dedication.

TheLiquidCircuis.com has what appears to be the first clip of a new documentary that seeks to showcase the hard work Rusty puts into every day as a professional wakeboarder. From the small sample of video, we can also see that the filmmakers have also chosen to include Rusty’s group of close friends and fellow wakeboarders, including Danny Harf, in the movie. I think it’s safe to say that Danny and Rusty are really pushing eachother right now, as evidenced by shared success when spinning three times. Hopefully the documentary will provide some insight into how they each benefit from a competitive friendship like theirs.

Unfortunately no release information is given, so we’ll just have to sit tight until the full film is done.

Check out the preview of Rusty Malinoski’s wakeboard documentary after the jump.

Pay It Forward, Shaun Murray Style

Posted on March 12th, 2008 by | posted in Contests, Gear, General, Riders
Shaun Murray Pay It Forward

Shaun Murray is a household name within the wakeboard industry. Seriously, he’s not only been around for a while, but continues to play a key role in the industry, whether it’s in his impressive contest showings or simply serving as an ambassador to the sport, Shaun will go down as one of the legends of wakeboarding.

Murray’s latest plan further reinforces the creativity and drive that has kept him at the top of the industry for so long. Although it can certainly be attributed as a genius marketing idea, Murray and Hyperlite are teaming up to replicate the inspiring story of the popular movie Pay It Forward. In the wakeboard version, Murray will be boxing up three of his brand new pro-models, and shipping each one out to one lucky person to ride for a couple of days. The details are still developing, but however it works out, this should be a great opportunity for more people to try a new and innovative wakeboard, while at the same time spreading some wakeboard stoke.

Stay tuned for the details, along with instructions on how you can catch a ride on the 2008 Hyperlite Murray. The only catch is, you’ve gotta pay it forward when your turn is over.
