The 2014 Wakeskate Tour Suwannee Pro Recap Video

The level of riding on The Wakeskate Tour has d*mn near gotten out of hand. Straight up, these guys are go for the gusto right out of the gate as if the qualifying round is simply a massive final before a smaller final.

We’re pumped to see Ambush riders Josh Zentmeyer, Ben Horan, and our good friends Austin & Travis Pastura at the forefront shaking things up. Press play and watch this incredible recap video put together by Rockstar. Oh yeah, and Benni…that frontside heelflip caused an earthquake up here at the shop.

BOOM!

 

A Day In The Life of Josh Zentmeyer

Josh Zentmeyer oozes charisma. From his dayjob to the skatepark, from the skatepark to the wakepark, Josh is always excelling at what he’s doing. It’s no wonder that his unfailing work ethic has morphed him into an incredible skateboarder and wakeskater. Josh brings a unique perspective to wakeskating and often pops his signature Andrew Reynolds-esqe frontside flips higher than most big-box pros can dream (proof at 2:32). We’re proud to see Josh flying the Ambush Board Co. flag and look forward to watching his bright future unfold.

Welcome, Corrie Dyer

We’re pleased to announce that the already-heavy-hitting Ambush Wakeboard Team has added another person to the roster, Corrie Dyer.

Corrie hails from Crossville Tennessee and has made a name for herself over the past five years as one of the top female talents in the deep South. Look out for Corrie this year at a wakepark near you on her 2014 Slingshot Pearl.

Corrie Dyer Ambush Team Rider

Corrie recently participated in a long-distance boat trip down the Mississippi with a handful of other pros. The trip was documented for a wake film dubbed The Voyage by JOA Productions set for a 2014 release.

This video captures Corrie’s easy going attitude as well as her smooth style on a wakeboard. Needless to say, we’re pumped to have Corrie on the team.

  • Sign up for you chance to keep the board for a week and share your good times with us.
  • Winners will be notified one week before their turn.
  • Slingshot will be sending all winners a swag bag full of goodies like t-shirts, hats, and stickers.
  • Ambush is covering all shipping costs.
  • When your time with the board is up, we will be in contact with you to arrange for the LTD to continue its journey.

Once the LTD embarks on its journey we will all follow the board’s path around the country for the ensuing five months. #travelingLTDproject
