STZ Weekend with Sam Baker
A recent trip to Wilmington, NC left no expectation adrift. Kickin' it with STZ team rider, Sam Baker, we got an insider's view into the local wake scene and community. Sam took us to his favorite shred spots and showed us how he throws down in his neck of the woods.
Starting in the Intercoastal Waterway, we made passes for a little behind-the-boat action before posting up for some shoreline jibbing. After the ICW, we headed to the Cape Fear River where Sam showed us what glass and no turns will get you - BANGERS!
We Love Zane - CWB Team Rider and Legend
The Pro tour threw a surprise party for Zane to celebrate his 20 years of pro riding, dedication to our sport and to show appreciation for everything he has done for wakeboarding. This is a great video with highlights of Zane thru the years. You young riders can learn so much from riders like Zane. 20 years of pro riding is not something many riders can claim.
Supra Wake - The McCauley's Edit
I had two young shredders come out a few weeks ago to film an edit for their sponsors. Jamie McCauley is a 15 year old Jr. Mens rider and Zach McCauley is a 12 year old Boys rider. They absolutely threw it down for the camera and it shows in this edit. The McCauley's are an awsome family so sit back, relax, and watch the two naturally talented wake shredders in their family do what they do. Watch this bad boy in HD! Stoked!
Filmed with a Panasonic HVX200a and a GoPro HD Hero 2.

Malibu Boats Surf Gate Preview - Wakeboarder.com
During the Malibu/RedBull Wake Open in Tampla Florida we had the opportunity to see the Malibu Boats SurfGate in action. The first take on wakesurf wake building that does not include moving ballast from one side to the other. I cannot wait to get a 2013 Malibu on the water for a few hours so we can test the SurfGate in a number of different combinations.
