We recently returned from our Annual Church Camp retreat (Wake!Fest) where we get to spend all day in the boat teaching local high schoolers to wakeboard and wakesurf. The camp, called "Wake!Fest," has been going on in some capacity for more than 22 years and this year was Greg's 22nd and my 1st. I can see why Greg has never missed it!
Spending all day on calm water at Lake Entiat with personalities of every possible type in the boat could not have been more fun. The campers signed up for the boat they wanted (of course the NWR Malibu was booked quickly)and what followed was some great times and great memories.
We saw some amazing crashes, some new tricks landed, some first timers getting stoked, and SO much more. We hope to post some photos and videos soon. The staff took care of us better than we could have imagined and in the end I can easily say that it was one of the best weeks I have ever had.
Thanks to all the campers, staff, and friends that made this such an amazing time. See you next year!

We just had a huge sale and have blown out of nearly all our inventory from the Summer line. I will be adding the all "new" Summer.5 lineup over the next few days. The line includes the "PLAID" on all new tagless cotton, the "WHITE NOISE" on 50/50 material featuring a black tee with white print, the "SKYLINE" on kelly green tagless cotton with white print, and a 50/50 bright yellow with bright blue print tee.
Check back in a few days for the new gear. We also added the new cursive logo die-cut sticker to the fray. Thanks for all the support!
