  1. Wake Culture: Breddas Battle of the Backyard recap

    Everybody is so Stoked! That's the opening line of the 2014 Breddas Battle of the BackYard BOTBY edit. This year's event looks like it was the best yet, with athletes and fans showing up from around the world to ride, watch, and just have an all around amazing time. For those of you who don't know, Breddas are some of the sickest wakeboarders out there, comprised of 3 brothers from Sweden who have built their very own wake park in their back yard. Each year in the fall, they throw Battle of the Back Yard and host Scandinavia's biggest wakeboard competition. If you ask us, this is a wake event done right. Breddas have successfully been bringing the action sports and youth lifestyle culture together under one roof for quite some time now. Motocross, skateboarding, daredevils, hip hop, and some of the best wakeboarding on the planet. No wonder they get so many people to show up and have a good time. If you want a better insight into what I'm saying... just watch the video and l

  2. Wake Culture: Ash Hannig Babe Shredder Edit

    Wake Culture: Ash Hannig Babe Shredder Edit Elevated Team Rider Ash Hannig released her summer wakeboarding edit and it's sick! Ash is an ASU Wake Devil who owns and runs Babe Shredder. She worked at BSR Cable Park over the summer and has been dialing in her riding like it's nobody's business. Ash has a special place in her shred ready heart for girls that ride, and wants to inspire more girls to feel comfortable competing and growing as athletes. Through Babe Shredder she has begun hosting wakeboard clinics around the country and rounding up some of the best female riders out there to teach new talent. We're stoked on Ash and would love it if you would share her edit around to bring her and the Babe Shredder crew some more exposure. And on that note we'll leave you with a quote from Ash: "I don't ride to compete. I don't ri

  4. Inspiration: Prince Ea- Why I Think This World Should End

    Inspiration: Prince Ea- Why I Think This World Should End A very positive message for all of us to consider, ponder, implement, and share around. Life is full of many things. There are so many distractions for us to give our time too. Some good, some bad. But once in a while something comes along that breaks us from our routine; pulls us from the things we are accustomed too, and causes us to think about Who We Are. And maybe more importantly... causes us to think about the Way We Are. This video does that for me. It puts into words the thoughts I often have swimming somewhere at the back of my head while I give myself over and over again to the daily grind and my current routine. Have I loved enough? Have I given enough? Do I spend enough time "Thinking" rather than just doing? I don't know. But I'm glad someone said this stuff and I think we should all be hearing more of it. What do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itvnQ2QB4yc
