2016 Ambush Gives Back – A B4BC Benefit Event

Ambush Hosts a Fun Day of Wakeboarding for a Good Cause

 

Ambush Gives Back

My sunglasses saved me all day last Saturday at Terminus Wake Park.  Not only was the sun brighter than a St. Pauli Girl sign in a college dorm room, but I had to make sure that I kept my man card securely in my back pocket.  There were so many touching moments at the Ambush Gives Back benefit event that the ever-present smile on my face occasionally gave way to a certain level of emotion that I’m not accustomed to at an Ambush event.  Ambush Gives Back  B4BC Benefit was rewarding and fulfilling in so many ways.

The motivation for putting on our inaugural Ambush Gives Back event was the fact that two of the three women in the Ambush founding family are breast cancer survivors.  Our family has had two unbelievably positive outcomes when it comes to battling and defeating breast cancer.  Other families have not been so fortunate.  In a gracious effort to pay it forward, we wanted to put on this event to help raise money for Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a charity whose sole purpose is supporting those in the action sports community who are affected by breast cancer.

The Coalition Vol. 2: Ambush Riders and Friends

Wakeboarding on a whole new level!

Our good friend and team rider, Wesley Mark Jacobsen, not only filmed this, but is one of the handful of riders shredding Valdosta Wake Compound to pieces.  You are going to need to set aside 12 minutes of your day and watch this three times in a row!  Once it hit Alliance Wake the internet was briefly shut down, but thankfully it’s back up and running for your pleasure.  This is some heavy wakeboarding.  100%!

Riders: Quinn Silvernale (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), WMJ (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Terry Bailey, Blake Bishop (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Justin Lee (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Nick Gaddy (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Nick Mertes (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Cole Vanthof (Ambush/BuyWake Team Rider), Wes Huber, Crosse Bearden, Cody Oxford, and Jefferson Mathis.

Daily Bread vs. Rhett Whatley

Rhett Whatley has been mixing music for years.

Before there was a social media marketing team here at Ambush there was the lone wolf of the web, Rhett Whatley, who handled it all himself.  Rhett graduated Kennesaw State University with a degree in Marketing while working at the shop (Ambush Board Co.) and our ecommerce companies (BuyWake.com/BuySkateShoes.com/BuySnow.com/CheapSk8Shoes.com).  He helped our business establish an online persona and we continue to carry forward that mantle today.  We are grateful for all the support and we promise to continue to support him and his music!

Daily Bread

In his humble beginnings of sampling and layering beats he was good…I remember thinking, “Dude this is your third track you’ve ever made?”  Fast forward and observing from a far, Rhett would lace me up with every mp3 he was making.  At one point, I looked in my iTunes library under the folder I made for him and there was over 100 songs equaling 5 hours worth of tracks.  Rhett has an extensive background in wakeboarding and competed on The Pro Wake Tour for a few years.  I can’t remember the year, but back in the day he won the PWT in Portland.  Immersed in wakeboarding his early music could be heard on such wake projects as “The Way” DVD.  It’s pretty solid to be a rider in a legit wake video, but to have also done the soundtrack is literally unheard of.

Welcome, Corrie Dyer

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. Read More >
