Winch Footy New Braunfels TX
This past weekend we headed down to south Texas to do some more winching. We found a really nice spot that had a good concrete slab for us to session. We spent most of the day swimming against the flood waters current, but still had a blast. Our final stop of the day was the famous Shredtown wall ride. Good times on that thing. Definetly have some respect for those guys. Thanks to Jade Whirley and Lana Merkley with Phun Promotions for coming out and helping.

Hyperlite Marek Wakeboard Binding
The Marek boot was designed to the exact standards set forth by Rusty Malinoski. This is the most supportive boot in the Hyperlite line, yet due to the Asymmetrical lacing system one of the easiest to get in and out of. The 1 pull lacing system makes for a fast lock down once you are in and an even faster release once your set is over. Combined with the new Low Pro plate system, which puts the rider closer to the deck of the board than ever before, the Marek is truly designed for performance.

Wakeboarder.com/Wakeskating.com Rooftop rail at the winch park
Well here it is! Wakeboarder.com's and Wakeskate.com's first rail. We built a 64ft rooftop rail with about a 30ft land gap. We had some rough weather to deal with but an allstar crew of builders down for the cause. We got the rooftop knocked out and took turns taking a couple of hits on it. This is just a preview of the rails to come as well as the riding to be seen. Special thanks to Rob Chapman and his family, Billy Garcia, Tara, Ross Skrudland, and Captain Rick.
