WNZ held their first Wake vs Cable event on 1 & 2 February 2014 at Back Paddock Lakes in Waipukurau. This was a fantastic event with 2 days of great riding on Cable and behind the Boat. This really tested the riders in 2 different riding skills.
WNZ would like to thank all its sponsors for supporting this event, and the team at Back Paddock Lakes for allowing us to hold this event at their amazing facilities.
MALIBUBOATS.com - The 2013 "Innovation Of The Year" has even more to offer in 2014. First, the actuator ram speed has been improved from 3 seconds to 1.5, making side-to-side transfers easier than ever for the wakesurfer. To time your transfer, a horn on the transom sounds a series of beeps to let you know exactly when the shift will happen. There are also optional tower lights, which indicate the transfer timing as well. To top things off, all 2014 gates are finished off with a stainless steel overlay for a sharp look on the water.

Random clips I collected during the 2013 season. Thank you to everyone who filmed, always stoked to get on the other side of the camera. Also thank you everyone who helped me have such a fun year, especially Texas Ski Ranch, Staminaco.com, and Liquid Force.
We all get caught up in the hustle and grind of busy weeks with overwhelming schedules. Here’s a reminder to make your time on the water a priority this year and live your #LifeWithoutLimits. All of our tools and innovations allow you to disconnect, live in the moment and truly enjoy your boat.

The Pond Party was a perfect way to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Backyard Rail Park. We wanted to have an event that was as much about having fun off the water, as it was on the water. A bunch of friends and riders came to enjoy the festivities. Overall it was a blast and we can't wait for next year. Thanks to everyone that attended and thanks especially to the WTWT for all the help getting ready for the event. We hope the video captures the true essence of the great time that was had..
