December 7 2012 - 2013 CWB JT Boots

Photo: The 2013 JT Boot. Designed and flex tested by Josh Twelker. Get you some.

Our boy Josh Twelker got his own pro model boot from CWB!  If you like amazing support but feel the need to flex like Gumby himself, these boots are for you.  These boots were given an A+ by the entire BoardCo crew and have the seal of approval of the new King of the Delta.  Do yourself a favor, look up the Josh Twelker edit we released earlier this year, and have your brain melted.  Then go buy his boots (preferably from BoardCo), you won't be disappointed.



December 6 2012 - Raph


Raph Derome dropped this video at the 2012 Surf Expo and the janitor had to come around after to clean up all the jaws on the floor.  2012 has been the year of Raph, from winning the biggest competition in the history of wakeboarding, the Red Bull Wake Open, to holding down the top spot at every single cable competition.  Add on being the only rider in history to win the Transworld and Alliance Rider of the Year Awards and Raph has owned the limelight this year and never let it go.  The craziest thing about Raph is he has dominated every single aspect of the sport and this video is absolute proof.  Raph, pure and simple, is the future of wakeboarding.

Check out all of Raph's gear from Billabong and Liquid Force at BoardCo.


December 6 2012 - Drew Danielo 2012 World Wakesurfing Championships

Drew Danielo was the very first member of the BoardCo Pro Team and just happens to be one of the most genuinely awesome guys you will ever meet.  He is a great husband (his wife will vouch for that), a dedicated dad, the driving force behind Phase 5 Wakesurfers and is un-arguably the best wakesurfer in the history of the sport.  About 90% of all moves in competitive wakesurfing were originated by Drew and he is still at the forefront inventing new moves and pushing the sport to new levels.  One thing is certain, wakesurfing wouldn't be where it is now without the influence of the prolific Double D.  This picture is just another example of where wakesurfing is today and where it is headed in the future.

December 6 2012 - Shredtown Presents: Pallets



Let's talk about creativity. The crew at Shredtown take things to a whole new level and are constantly re-inventing the sport every time they do... well... just about anything. Take this video for example, the Shredtown crew built this entire setup with nothing but a drill and some shipping pallets. Red Bull did something higher end with Wakelab a few years ago, but that cost over $1 million. There are better wake riders, there are better rail riders but there are no riders more original than the Shredtown crew. We could not be more excited to have Chris Abadie, Davis Griffin and Andrew Adams on the BoardCo Pro Team.  Do yourself a favor and check out every video they've ever made, we promise you won't be sorry.

December 6 2012 - Shane Blanton Welcome to the Team Video


BoardCo would like to welcome Shane Blanton to the BoardCo.com Wakesurf Team.  Shane rips on his wakesurf board from Phase 5 Wakesurfers.

"Check out Phase 5 Wakesurfers Team Rider Shane Blanton kill it in this video. I am not a huge fan of spins, but if everyone could spin 7's as good as Shane I would be a huge. Best 720 in wakesurfing if you ask me. Style."

-Drew Danielo



December 6 2012 - Corbin Blanton Welcome to the Team Video


BoardCo would like to welcome Corbin Blanton to the BoardCo Recruit team.  Corbin has some serious skills on a wakeboard and behind the lens of his camera.  Corbin is a regional team rider for O'brien wakeboards and also holds it down with his production company, CB Filmz.  Get stoked on Corbin's unique editing style and perspective with his welcome to the team edit.
