Ranked #1 in their league…team LF makes a push for the championship…
Joining the ranks of washed up jocks, bitchin’ Cameros, and goatees the Encinitas softball season is in full swing. Coach Wallace and his LF Squad are off to a great start stepping up their game for a record of 2-1. They picked up a couple heavy hitters in the draft including Alliance’s own Corey Marotta and William Lawther. We’ll keep you updated with game highlights as the season progresses. Next week LF takes on The Hood…will they pull off the big “W”?
Guess who and win…
The month of June is almost past us and it’s been full of LF birthdays …Phillip Soven and Mike Ennen have already celebrated their birthdays this month and someone super special is celebrating a birthday today. I’m pretty sure there’s going to be cake, ice cream and maybe even a pony. Your job is to tell us what LF pro rider is throwing a birthday party (that we haven’t been invited to yet by the way) today. Fill out entry to and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Playing games with the wake…So Cal is so hot right now…
California’s Lake Elsinore channel was scorching this past weekend…must have been the abundance of really, really, ridiculously good looking wakeboarders on hand or maybe the heated competition brought on by the unique team format. Team Shane Bonifay brought home the bronze, while Melissa Marquardt earned the individual silver in Pro Women’s and Tino snagged individual silver in the Pro Men’s division. Be sure to watch for junior men’s silver medalist Jimmy LaRiche making a charge onto the scene. Detailed contest results can be found at http://www.wakeboardingmag.com.
LF wakeskater Silas Thurman and his buddy Collin Wright invited all their friends to Koppert Lake last weekend for a little wakeskating fun. The theme was all about riders hanging and having a good time while pushing wakeskating. Hippodrome organizer Silas commented, “The contest was rad! All the guys who showed up were super stoked with everything. I got slammed pretty hard on Thursday in the pool so I didn’t ride the boat deal on Sat… that was a bummer, but I made it to the finals in the winch event on Sunday. The weekend was super fun…I can’t wait until next year!” LF pro wakeskater Kyle Walton rocked the 80’s ski suit combined with a helmet… he looked like he was ready to jump out of a plane…He instead jumped out of a pool and kick-flipped the gap. When all was said and done, Kyle rode well enough to take 1st in the Winch, and 2nd in the boat. Check out Alliance’s website, www.alliancewake.com, which features plenty of pics from the event. They will also bring you more coverage this fall on FUEL TV with their new batch of PULL episodes.

Minneapolis Slide Show… possibly the biggest party of the year!
Ah, Minnesota… The land of 10,000 lakes…. What a perfect spot to host a wakeboard/wakeskate event. Then why did we here at Liquid Force not even use one of the 10,000 lakes for our event… Because we once again took wakeboarding to the people and the streets… June 17th was a big day for the wakeboard/wakeskate community in Minneapolis. The day started out with the Upper Mississippi Shakedown, and ended in the courtyard of Sally’s Saloon with the Slide Show Rail Jam. At the beginning of the day there were several in the running, but by night’s end, it was Collin Ryan that took the MPLS Slide Show title, giving himself the right to move on to Houston and compete for the overall title. It was a great event that lasted all day… thanks to all that helped put the event on…
And in more Slide Show news…LF takes over the ATL…
Hotlanta… The Dirty Dirty… What ever you want to call it, this past weekend in Atlanta, GA the weather was hot and the riding was dirty at the 4th Liquid Force Slide Show presented by Monster Energy. The event started Friday evening at 7:00 pm in the Ambush Boarding Co. parking lot with a special Slide Show for an upcoming show on MTV2. MTV2 had an entire entourage on hand to film and interview the LF riders at the event. Shawn Watson, Aaron Reed, Kevin Henshaw, Gregg Necrason, Keith Lyman, Devin Rogers, and Collin Harrington put on their best TV faces and road for the cameras of MTV2. On Saturday the action really heated up as 11 locals squared off to try to win the ATL Slide Show title. In the end, it was Brian Reeder taking the title and moving on to the finals in Houston.

Liquid Tunes makes Stuff magazine
One look at the cover of this month’s Stuff Magazine and first thing that comes to mind is Liquid Tunes. Yeah that’s what came to our minds…that lovely lady covered in water has that look on her face because she is rocking out to a lightweight waterproof Liquid Tunes mp3 player. Actually pretty cool to see Liquid Tunes featured in such a large publication. Maybe we can get a few Stuff girls to do a photo shot. All we need is water and a Liquid Tunes player…that’s it.
Summer rocks…LF keeps you groovin’ with an exclusive inside look at brand new rider playlists from our ladies, Melissa, Amber, and Stef… http://www.liquidforce.com/liquid-tunes_playlist.htm.
