Brostock Numero Dos
Liquid Force's second of four Brostocks took place last week on beautiful Lake Oroville in Northern California. Of course, getting a bunch of wake bros to hang out for a few days, shred some 2008 product, BBQ for breakfast lunch and dinner, and drink a few (okay, a lot) of beers only adds to the natural beauty of the lake.
Pro team riders Shane Bonifay, Collin Harrington, Mikey Ennen, Kevin Henshaw and Melissa Marquardt were on hand hanging out with Nor-Cal local riders Daniel Doud, Shelby Kantar, Jaret Brantley and Jacob Locken. Some serious riding and bro'ing went down over the weekend at Oroville. Shane did indeed become the first wakeboarder to ever land a toeside backside 720, which is extremely impressive. Everybody was in full freak out mode after that maneuver. Other highlights include Collin flooding his video camera, then taking it apart and airing it out, then putting it back together and finding that it still worked, Shane and myself playing bumper boats while driving the houseboats down the lake, Melissa professing her love for peeing, and Aaron Grace doing beer bongs for breakfast.
Some serious fun was had at this last Brostock, so if you want to get in on the action, make your way out to Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia from August 10-12 for the third installment of these Liquid Force funfests.
