Jimmy LaRiche with the riders

Today we went to the Hyperlite Experience at the Carlsbad Lagoon, the birthplace of wakeboarding. It was one of the first real days of summer and everyone was out of school and ready to ride. The sun was shining and the water was flat, perfect conditions for wakeboarding. Eight riders went out on the boat for the morning session to test out the 2013 Hyperlite gear and hang out with team rider Jimmy LaRiche. Everyone was stoked and ready to ride after watching Jimmy go huge behind the Nautique. Each rider got to demo the board and system bindings of their choice and got one-on-one instruction with Jimmy. Jimmy was really friendly and stayed around to talk to the riders and sign posters for them after their session. I got to chat with him about his week on the Hyperlite Experience Tour and his first time riding at Canyon Lake. Every rider was hyped on their session with Jimmy and got to take home a swag bag with some new Hyperlite gear.
