LF joins forces with The Wakeboard Camp
Kyle Schmidt/Head Coach, WakeBoarding Magazine’s Instructional Editor, and LF pro rider enlightens us, “The Wakeboard Camp has built a reputation for being the world’s best location for wakeboard instruction. It only makes sense to have the worlds best wakeboarding equipment available to the riders so they can ride and progress as easily as possible. All the riders and coaches that work or hang at the camp ride for Liquid Force so it will be nice to actually put students on product that we believe in and represent. Ben Greenwood, Aaron Reed, and I all have boards and product stamped with our seal of approval so it will be nice to coach riders on boards and gear that we have put our hard work and hearts into. It’s going to be a great relationship”. If you’ve ever thought about becoming a better wakeboarder go to www.wakeboardcamp.com. While you’re there check out The Book, an instructional video made just for you. In The Book, The Wakeboard Camp brings its prestigious reputation of having the most knowledgeable staff, straight to your DVD player.
Black Top Oasis…Unbelievable
One person actually described it as the 909 theory…California Correct Craft is located in the heart of the 909, commonly known for black socks, tattoos, spiky hair, and massive lifted trucks. How does this relate at all to the Black Top Oasis? The pioneer of parking lot rail jams complimented the 909 perfectly with an aggressively unique, larger than life event, pushing the limits of what people thought was possible. LF’s own, Keith Lyman escaped certain death and clinched the title with a switch 270 on and 90 out on the two-story A-Frame (his black socks and spiky hair may have helped). Watson took third laying down his patented smooth style with some serious lines. Other highlights included Mike Ennen shredding the rail with his BROstock Foam shaka on hand… check for footage in upcoming LF Films videos. Look for coverage on the event at http://alliancewake.com/default2.aspx?pg=article&id=279 and www.greenhouserideshop.com/shop/home.php.

Phil’s Board Up in Miami
Mr. Soven captured another title at the 1st annual Board Up Miami Pro-Am taking home $10,000, not a bad way to start out the season. Fellow LF rider and rocker Jimmie LaRiche took home the Jr. Men’s title. The event also included a music festival featuring DJ Irie, Atomic Tangerine, The Linx, The Spam AllStars and DJ Jazzy Jeff, that’s right Jazzy Jeff is still kicking the funky beats.
Take a dash of Spring Break, throw in a couple of high speed Motocross races, a dash of Woodstock and a little X-Games for flavor, drop it in the middle of Texas and you have all the right ingredients for Cable Stock. Cable Stock 06, Texas Ski Ranch's celebration of professional wakeboarding, sunbathing and live music, is celebrating its 4th anniversary with two national motocross qualifiers, a killer skate competition and a winch pulled rail event. TSR is bringing all this insanity together at Cablestock 2006. LF Riders, Keith Lyman, Tino Santori, and local LF talent such as Richie McKee and Joey Bradley will be on site all weekend. Be sure to check out this official Liquid Force test center and join in on the fun.
