The Midwest Mastercraft crew had their first session of the summer last night trying out the new Gen 2 surf wake behind a Mastercraft X30. Wow what a difference it makes! More pictures and videos to come!

MasterCraft Gen 2 Wakesurf System

MasterCraft has been making big moves in their wakesurf game. They signed pro surfer/musician Donavon Frankenreiter last summer and released the MasterCraft Gen 2 Surf System in December. The MasterCraft Gen 2 system is a combination of added ballast, hull design, new adjustable wake shaping devices, and software to simplify the process of setting up your boat for wake surfing.

Phase 5 Team Goes Big in 2013

Check out the new video from the Phase 5 team.  This has to be one of the best wakesurf videos I have ever seen!  These guys go above and beyond the average wakesurf set, and even use  3 boats at once to surf!   Seeing this video makes me think how closer we are to summer.  Wakeboards.com has the whole Phase 5 line up in stock,  along with a variety of  wakesurf selections from Inland Surfer, Ronix, Hyperlite, Liquid Force and more.  Check it out, and see what board fits you best!  Enjoy the video, and see you on the water!

Dirty Mike Dowdy

Want to know who’s killing it right now?  Without a question, Mike Dowdy.  This kid is unbelievable with how big he goes, and how much he has in  his arsenal of tricks.  Dowdy just recently signed with CWB, and has been proudly representing his team ever since then.  Check out this video to see what all the hype is about. Dowdy is crushing it on the 2013 CWB Transcend board.  If you want to get your own CWB package, check out Wakeboards.com!

Vintage Aaron Reed

Check out this clip of one of the Wakeskate legend’s, Aaron Reed off the movie, “Stumato.”  Reed is one of the Pioneers of the sport, and still is very much involved with it to this day!  If you’ve never tried wakeskating, or never heard of it, this is definitely worth watching!  Like what you see, and want to try it out for yourself?  Check out Wakeboards.com for our own selection of skates to choose from.  Doesn’t even matter if you’re a weekend warrior, and want to just have it in the boat for fun,  wakeskates are very affordable!

Throwback Thursday…Parks Bonifay in 12 Honkeys!

Parks Bonifay will go down as one of the best wakeboarders in the history of the sport, and for Throwback Thursday, we found a little clip of his section in the film, “12 Honkeys.”  Not really sure what was going on with his hair at the time, but I guess we all go through phases like that!  You really see how far the sport has come from then to now.  From boards, to boats, it’s a totally different ball game!   Enjoy the video, and make sure to check out Wakeboards.com for Parks’s new Ronix set up this year, along with all new gear from Hyperlite, and Liquid Force for the 2013 season!
