It just keeps getting better for Justin and the crew. The Truth had already been getting rave reviews from consumers...now it can add one huge award to the list! The Truth was nominated for 3 awards at the recent X-Dance action sports film fest, and managed to come away victorious with the "Core Video of the Year" award. Brian Deegan presented the award to Justin and Tony Finn in front of a packed house in Park City. The field was stacked, so it was a HUGE accomplishment for the LF Films crew and a big reminder as to why Justin is the best in the biz!

Now, on to the world of Cable Parks...
Liquid Force has teamed up with a new Cable Park in Cairns, Australia...deemed the Liquid Force Cable Park, the facilities look to be super fun! Our Aussie crew has been working on this for a while now, so it's great to see it up and running. One of our friends from the US, Earl Ball even made a brief stop by this winter to work the facilities. He has worked at KCW for several years and claimed that the park in Cairns was "epic!" If you're ever in Australia, be sure to make your way up to Cairns and check out the Liquid Force Cable Park!
In Cable Park news closer to home, LF has signed on for more years of fun with the two best cable parks in the US, Texas Ski Ranch and Kansas City Watersports. LF will continue to be the exclusive wakeboard and Wakeskate product used at TSR and KCW. LF and TSR are planning several cool events this summer, including a giveaway of a free weekend with the LF pro's at TSR. One lucky winner will get the vacation of a lifetime, as they'll get to hang out and ride TSR with the LF team for an entire weekend. Watson, Shane, Keith, Reed, etc...they'll all be there sessioning the park with one lucky winner. Look for details of this event to pop up on www.liquidforce.com, as well as www.texasskiranch.com soon. KCW will also be teaming with LF for some special events this summer.

Henshaw claims first cover on WBM...Axis in stores now. Get your Axis Wakeboard.
If you've been to a boat show this winter, chances are you've seen Kevin Henshaw roaming the floor, doing a rail jam demo, or talking to customers about his new pro-model, the Axis, which is finally in stores! The kid has been non stop this winter and is preparing for another breakthrough summer. He has become arguably the best rail rider in the world and is looking to become the best behind the boat, as well. Kevin has started things off right, as he just claimed the cover shot on WakeBoarding Mag's Board Buyers Guide. Nice work Henny! To find out more about his new board, The Axis, go to your local boat show or shop.
Amber Wing claims her first cover shot!
If you're a fan of women's wakeboarding, you're a fan of Amber Wing and what she accomplished this past season. The 720 has vaulted her to the top of the women's market and has given that side of our sport a huge push. As if winning Alliance's "Female Rider of the Year" title in 2006 or winning the 2007 Australian Pro Tour wasn't enough, she is currently the cover girl on the March/April issue of Alliance. Looks like Amber is continuing right along where she left off in 2007. For info on Amber's new board, the Jett wakeboard, check out www.liquidforce.com.
