We wanted to let everyone know that we have set a release date for our first issue….June 15! There has been a ton of anticipation and excitement surrounding this project and wakeskaters around the world have been waiting for something like this to come along. We are so stoked to be able to put out a publication that gives our community a voice. The fact is, is our sport has come a long way since Byerly landed that first 3 shuv; more and more we are not just an after thought to wakeboarding. We are a new breed of action sports enthusiasts. We are wakeskaters! And now we will have our own printed magazine. We at Blast will do our part to help promote the sport and its progression, we just need all of you to do the same by keeping the stoke alive and by riding as much as possible. So quit reading this and go out and SHRED!!!

Winchfest Rail Jam

Ryan Light of Variable Existence has come through big with a video from the 1st annual Whinchskatefest. Enjoy as some of the best wakeskaters around took advantage of the variety in this course. Ryan’s smooth video effects and transitions along with a classic Geto Boys track captures the laid-back lifestyle of this event. In the end, Jarret Cofer took the top spot in the amateur division with Mitchell Cobb and Mike McAndrew finishing second and third respectively. Jarret seems to be on a roll ever since taking over the First Oklahoma Mudslide in September. In the pro division Josh Kirby came out on top with Bret Little finishing second and Blake Steel in third. Look out for more from these riders as well as more of Ryan’s videos on BLAST.
