Liquid Force Truth for Mid-March
By Don Wallace

Gregg Necrason…March Madness continues
Last week we asked: What was Greg Necrason’s first pro-model with Liquid Force? The responses varied from The Squirt, Trip, Super Fly, and even the Balance. We’re glad to see that you were paying attention. The Super Squirt in 1998 was a result of Gregg wanting more pop and a board that turned quicker. Jimmy Redmon shaped The Super Squirt 128, a shorter wider board with features like the double concave that are still used today. Go retro at also take a peek at the Mini-Squirt and Nymph. Liquid Force was the first company to offer a kids and women’s specific board back in 1998.

This weeks contest…a Trip and a Squirt walk into a bar…
What board is Gregg Necrason currently riding that combines the multi-fin (angled side fins) of a Trip and the concepts of the Squirt? First person to let us know the size and model wins the patented LF care package, T-Shirt, Hat and Video. *Insiders tip-you can see Gregg back-lipping the wake on this board in the LF calendar.

MexicoMexico was “Muy bueno!”…that means really good…

You should have been there…Silas, Kyle Walton, Schnoodles, Basino, Grace, Justin Stephens, and Joe Pearson bragged about one of those near perfect trips when everything goes right… the weather, the water, the riding etc. In the words of Schnoodles, “this was best trip ever!” One look at the pictures will put you in the mood for sure. Justin freaked us out as usual with un-heard of creative filming techniques… something about hanging from a cable and swinging across the Rio…We can’t wait to showcase this footage in the latest LF Films project “The Truth”. Kevin Michael from WakeBoarding Magazine was also on hand to click and capture the Mexico magic…you’ll be happy to see his images and story in an upcoming WBM issue.

Aaron Reed and DVS…a first time for everything in New Zealand
There were many great photos shot and tons of video footage captured… To name a couple from Aaron Reed, there was a backside tail slide, blunt slide as well as a front board slide big spin. Fortunately, you will be able to witness the event that took place in Orakei Korako in an upcoming limited special issue of Alliance Wake. The issue will also come with a DVD featuring the event. The slide show of pics and more info is available at Word is they have a video documenting the whole thing for us to enjoy. Keep a shortcut to the DVS site handy for sure.

Liquid Force hires future art director…
Congratulations to LF art director Ray, and his wife Keena Cruz. They gave birth to our future art director Keenan Cruz Tuesday night at 7:10pm! Keenan is 8.5lbs 22in long, healthy and has more hair on his head than Ray. We can’t wait to see Keenan out wakeboarding, riding motorcycles and working side by side with Ray in the art room.

Payson Gutt inks a deal with LF…
Special thanks go out to former LF rep, now K2 Skis marketing guru, Mike Gutt, for locking down a lifetime contract with Payson Avery Gutt to the LF Team.

I’m very happy for the Gutt family and their bright future.”

Jason Coop joins the Liquid Force Team!
“It just felt right at this time” and “I am truly honored to be a part of the team...I struggled with injuries in 2005 and I am healthy and so stoked for '06!" Jason Coop has been a staple in the Utah Wakeboard scene, and we’re stoked to have him on our team. Jason runs Good Times Wake School with Session’s own, Jason Kimball. See more at
