March Madness…Gregg Necrason’s month
This month features Gregg airing a method grab over Mountain Sheep Canyon. Gregg, a true team veteran, makes this grab and pretty much any other move look good. This comes from many, many years of riding and practice as well as self discipline. We especially like the karate kids shot of Gregg in the lower corner…you can practically hear the karate chop…hii-yaaa!
Today in LF History- 1 year anniversary partnering up with Kansas City Watersports.
A year ago today we joined forces with Mid Americas only cable park http://www.kcwatersports.com/ to provide the ultimate wakeboard experience. Not to mention it’s conveniently located in the home of the best BB-Q food in the world, Kansas City.
Contest Of the Week-What was Gregg Necrason’s first official pro-model wakeboard?
The first wake fanatic to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct answer will receive an LF care package including an LF t-shirt, hat, and video.
Watson’s super sweet ‘do…
The “Watson/Bozworth” look was the talk of “The Truth” last week. We asked fans to send in photos of a ‘do as stylin’ as Watson’s crew cut gone bad. It was tough judging this one considering most of the photos carried solid merits in the laughter department. The final decision was swayed purely on the fact that her last name is the same as LF wakeskate team rider, ex-Free Motion front man, now DVS team manager Jim Leatherman. Congrats Skylar Leatherman you’ll be receiving a care package courtesy of Liquid Force, Jim and a bad hair day.
Collin Harrington lives to shred another day
After a recent knee surgery Collin Harrington is back on the water and loving it. Colin say’s, “My knee is feeling really good. I hit sliders the other day at the cable and it was like I never left a wakeboard.” He’s focused and ready to ride. He’s also been talking about experimenting more with wakeboarding in the surf. We can’t wait to see what this motivated waterman will bring.
Kevin Henshaw…5 times
We just talked to Henshaw and he’s already ridden 5 times today…Ah to be young again. The Canadian style master has successfully entered the limelight as a pro rider, although we still consider him a rookie with a fetish for moose.
Alliance Wake documented LF wakeskate team member Kyle Walton pushing the limits of the cable and wakeskating. Basically, you take 1,000 feet of rope, put the winch in the sand, and swim out into the surf. As the winch pulls you in you can cut around and use the waves as kickers, quarterpipes, whatever -- the possibilities are basically endless…see more at http://www.alliancewake.com/stories/story.aspx?id=230
Texas Ski Ranch Freezes their Ride off…it was a cold day in the lone star state.
Texas is home to some of the most skilled professional wake riders around. The 3 day Freezride event was bigger, better and colder than anyone imagined. Quick Stats from the event-124’ LF sponsored A-Frame slider, heel side backside 7, a switch front side 7, mobe, switch mobe, whirly 5, indy s-bend 2 blind, pete rose and a switch 313, weather under 50 degrees and everyone lived to tell about it. Stop by www.texasskiranch.com to see how you can be a part of something so great.
Rio Harde…Viva Mexico
The LF wakeskate crew compiled of Philip Basino, Kyle Walton, Silas Thurman, Steve Schoenhals aka “Schnoodles”, and Aaron Grace are packing up the green cards and gear and heading to our neighboring country…good ol’ Mexico. Justin Stephens will be on hand filming for the latest LF Films project “The Truth”, as they’ll be staying at our friend “Jukes” place. Aaron Reed and Danny Hampson will be sitting out this trip as Danny’s studying hard in School and Reed’s rocking out in New Zealand (more details on this trip to come soon). It’s been awhile since we’ve been down there so the excitement and anticipation is building. The butterflies will really start kicking in when we cross the boarder into unfamiliar chaos caused by unruly laws, sights, and smells. They’ll settle down as soon as we set eyes on the warm Mexico sunset over the Rio. We can’t wait to see the footage…with these kids pushing wakeskating and the closest hospital hours away…it’ll be Mexico style for sure. Be sure to check out an upcoming issue of WakeBoarding Magazine, as Kevco and crew will be headed down there to capture the action.
