Vista, CA – Cobian is proud to announce some new additions to their wake team.  Joining Melissa Marquardt and Garrett Morris are Mike Schwenne, Erik Lutgert, Austin Hair, Nick Jones and Alex Brown.  Mike runs, rides for Hyperlite and is very involved with mentoring younger riders.  Erik of course is best known as the owner and founder of the largest rider owned and operated wake company, Gatorboards.  Austin is coming off a banner year in 2007, competing for the first time in Men's wake divisions and finishing strong, plus he continues to kill it on the wakeskate, placing in the top 10 in two Toe Jam categories, and winning the Australian Tour championship.  Nick is from Seattle, WA but spends the cold months in Florida, and rides for CWB.  He managed to finish in the top 20 on the pro tour despite having a broken foot, which is finally healed.  Alex is from Florida and rides on both the US and Australian pro tours.

“Cobian has long been known for style, comfort, and quality in the surf industry, and is making a big push this year into wake retailers, so be sure to ask for Cobian at your local pro shops and online retailers.” says Brian Jolin, Cobian Wake Manager.  For more information on Cobian products, visit or contact Brian Jolin via email
