Well, I’ve caught up on my sleep and I’m slowly getting back in the groove following my long weekend in the Sunshine State. Expo was pretty cool; we saw some old friends, talked to some people about next year’s CWS tour, and had an all around good time. Unfortunately, I don’t have any shots from the show, but just know that there is a lot of really cool stuff getting ready to drop for 2009.
UGP’s clothing lineup looks really cool and their new vests are pretty slick as well. Slingshot and Liquid Force both have killer lineups this year, and just about all of the smaller wakeskate companies like Oak, Integrity, and Sattelyte had pretty sweet goods. Alliance has several projects up their sleeves this year, including the Parks Bonifay documentary, which from the looks of the trailer they had going at their booth, looks like it’s going to be insane.
The highlight of the weekend was Red Bull’s Wake Lab project on Lake Eola on Saturday night. Crazy rails, crazy riders, crazy times. I don’t have any pictures of that either, but I stole the above picture from some guy on Wake World; go there to see some more. The guys and gals at Red Bull are doing all kinds of great stuff for wakeboarding; can’t wait to see what they do next.
Big thanks to Adam for letting me crash at his house Sunday night and to Travis for getting me to the airport Monday. Back to the real world; see you guys at Wake the Lake…
