It’s mid July… the month of spectacular fireworks displays and independence…the loyal members of the LF marketing team bring you explosive updates and insight with “The Truth”.
June’s “Join the Truth” winner
Ahh…beautiful San Luis Obispo. This college party town is settled amongst the rolling hills midway up the Central Coast of CA. It’s also near one of the best lakes ever… Lake Nacimiento. This lake happens to be the stomping grounds for one of our favorite LF riders ever, Cody Ramsey.… and, of course, this month’s “Join the Truth” winner Amy Phelan. All she had to do was sign up for “The Truth” at http://www.liquidforce.com/join_truth.htm and she was automatically entered to win a Liquid Force care package. We also found out here favorite rider was Amber Wing, hence the Cadence with Minx setup that she’s currently ripping on. Amy, special thanks for the LF support in SLO!
This Month on the LF Calendar
This month is full of amazing events, 4th of July (obviously), but you may not realize the important wake history that took place this month.
*July 1, 1997-Jimmy and Gregg Necrason design the Trip…the first multi-fin board in wakeboarding. Gregg first rides it publicly at the X-Games in San Diego. The Team is the modern version of The Trip and is still Gregg Necrason’s and now Keith Lyman’s board of choice.
*July 3, 1999- Shane Bonifay, in his first season as a pro, invents the “tootsie roll” and the “dum-dum”. Although it seems like a long time ago, some would argue that Shane is just now hitting his prime. His riding shows as he continues to push the sport by adding style to tricks and creating new ones like his toeside-backside-off-axis-720.
July’s Calendar Boy
Collin Harrington is seen this month using the Fish to throw buckets on the LF calendar pages. Did you notice the kick-flip on the Armada at the bottom page? Yeah that’s right Collin can wakeskate pretty darn good. Check out the Fish and the Armada at your local dealer http://www.liquidforce.com/dealers_main.htm.
Love is in the air…

You have your favorites, so why not make your voice heard through http://www.wakeboardingmag.com/index.jsp. We’ve already placed our votes and can’t wait to see who makes it to the top spots.

Salt Lake City…Showing the Slide Show some love
Pretty good article summing up the Salt Lake Slide show at http://www.alliancewake.com/default2.aspx?pg=article&id=300
LF Films gets the blood flowing
We can’t freakin’ wait to see more sneak peaks of “The Truth” that Justin and LF Films is working on. He added a couple heart warming photos and trailers to http://www.liquidforcefilms.com/blog/. A little reminder of a Lake Powell trip that seems like several months ago yet was only the beginning of last month. Be sure to read the LF Films inside look at the Salt Lake Slide Show and more.
The Maven Sessions tour continues to push across the country to promote women’s wakeboarding and wakeskating. For your chance to experience the movement and become a Maven, go to http://www.liquidforcemaven.com/maven-sessions.htm. There is no other tour that has been designed specifically for women riders to ride together in the name of fun. With riders like Melissa Marquardt, Stef Tor, Lauren Loe, Amber Wing and others joining the party you’re guaranteed a good time.
Summer is motoring right along and we’re pumped to be on the water…come join us.
