Patented oak rebar fins. Jessup griptape. Tested and proven molecular bonding and sealing process which is all done in house, personally by us at oak, no out sourcing! All boards sealed and hand rolled with a two part epoxy resin system which adheres the wood fibers together, increases strength, pop, overall durability, keeps wood from warping and waterproofs the boards. The boards are then topped off with multiple coats of a top of the line marine urethane three part poly top seal. Built to take a hit.

No New Schnitzel in 2009
It's time to say goodbye

Wake up the world's gonna be ... this was the slogan from New Schnitzel in 2000. Now in 2008 Hardy Tunnissen speaks about the end of the company. New Schnitzel was always a company by riders for riders in both directions wakeboard and wakeskate. Thanks for the nice time and the wakesport support and I hope we see you back with a new project in 2009.

For more information check the gap magazine (in German). Picture is taken from New Schnitzel homepage.

Skatepark on Water
Red Bull shows the possibilities of Sesitec 2.0 Cable

Red Bull built the Wake Lab on Lake Eola in Orlando Downtown. Inspired by the great skate- and snowparks Pat Pankos (The Projects) built the biggest obstacle park as one floating object within 3 weeks. The obstacle park includes an integrated pool, a flatboard-downrail, a handrail, a ledge-to-ledge gap, an a-gap, and a huge wallride. Picture and information are taken from the-gap-magazin. More pics and info:
Looks amazing. There you can see the possibilities of a Sesitec 2.0 Cable. Build your own wakeskatepark in your backyard. The cost of a Sesitec 2.0 Cable plus park are equal to a new high class wakeboard boat.

Sesitec 2.0 Portable Cable System
Wake The Line Red Bull event with Cable 2.0

From hearsay the Red Bull Wake the Line event will be pulled by the new Sesitec 2.0 Cable. One more reason for some short info about this new portable cable system.

The Sesitec System 2.0 is essentially a straight-line cable system that can compliment full size cable park setups for events or as stand-alone rail parks. But the System 2.0 can also be used for private backyard setups because it is the first cable system that is actually portable. And unlike other two tower systems, System 2.0 was designed specifically for wake sports and provides a continuous ride—meaning that you won’t have to drop the handle or stop after one pull down the rail course. The required water area is length: 80 - 700ft and width: 50 - 80ft

All information is taken from the Wake Park Project (North American distributor of Sesitec). For more information contact the guys at Wake Park Project or directly contact Sesitec.

Mutiny is coming back

Good news for 2009 Mr. Schmaltz (mastermind behind Integrity wakeskates) has announced the comeback of Mutiny next year. Here's his statement on ws.com:

Mutiny's wakeskates will be priced lower and will be made similar to how I first made them... out of hard rock maple and birch (core/laminate)... So the wood purists can relate to it. I'm not sure on the specifics yet as to how or when... but if you own an old Mutiny wakeskate you can attest to it being solid due to the adhesive process we used then... which doesn't require any sealant...

Ryan Lemons is moved from the Integrity Team and on to the Mutiny Team come mid summer 2009. His Integrity Pro model will stop selling when the transition is complete.

If you want get one of the first prototypes build in an Integrity mold hurry up and check this Ebay auction (end date Sep-09-08 21:34:23 PDT). Pictures are taken form ws.com. If you want to see more of Mutiny and Integrity check this web cam during Surf Expo (August 12-14).
