Trailer for Push Process, Oakley’s Incredible New Video

Posted on September 28th, 2007 by Jason | Posted in General, Media, Videos

Oakley SunglassesLike pretty much every one in the wakeboard industry, we thought Justin Stephen’s film from last year, The Truth, was amazing. From the first time we saw the final cut we were asking ourselves “how can he possibly top this?” Enter Push Process, the new Oakley team video directed by, yep you guess it, Justin Stephens. This time Chase Heavener (that’s a name from the past) also works his magic with incredible effects.

Although all we’ve seen so far is the trailer, it looks like Justin has worked his magic yet again, and the result is a movie that appears as though it will surpass even The Truth in terms of cinematography excellence and mind blowing angles and slow motion action. It’s also incredible to see to how much the sport has progressed in just the last year when compared to the riding in The Truth.

We’ll stop talking now so you can check out the trailer after the jump, enjoy!

Team Hyperlite Descends on Lake Shasta

Posted on September 26th, 2007 by Jason | Posted in General, Media, Riders, Videos

Hyperlite WakeboardsThe Hyperlite wakeboard team gathered in Northern California recently to relax, recharge, and to take advantage of the incredible late season conditions Lake Shasta is known for. Fortunately for us they also brought along a video camera to capture some of the best free-riding we’ve seen. As an added bonus, there are some good shots of the 2008 gear, as the official purpose of the trip was to shoot video and images for the 2008 Hyperlite catalog.

As the season here in the Northwest starts to wrap-up, this video makes us wish we had a Shasta trip planned sometime in the near future to extend the season just a little bit longer. Hyperlite has put together a great team, and if they have plans to release more videos from team trips in the future we’re all for that.

Check out the video after the jump.

USCG Version of Jetpilot A-10 Comp Vest

Posted on March 1st, 2007 by Jason | Posted in Gear, Home

Jetpilot Wakeboard AccessoriesThe A-10 competition vest from Jetpilot has long been the industry standard as the most comfortable, and stylish, wakeboard vest. Now, with their new Raven model, Jetpilot aims to shrink the gap between bulky USCG vests and their non-legal competition brethren. Similar in design, the Raven will feature a new type of closed cell foam, which offers more buoyancy from less volume. This new foam is the biggest advancement in the design of the new vest, and has allowed Jetpilot to remove most of the bulk associated with a US Coast Guard approved life jacket.
