GALLERY | Battle Falls with Reed Hansen, Jake Ramsdell, & Josh Zentmeyer
The Big Chief enjoying his creation
Battle Falls holds a special place in the sport and history of wakeskating. Reed Hansen’s labor of love has hosted stops for The Wakeskate Tour over the years, has had countless NBD’s go down, and still sees plenty of riders come through its doors. Lined with palm trees to give it that extra Florida kick, this place is still a melting pot of progression. The property was originally owned by Reed’s parents but has recently changed hands to some new owners. Lucky for us, they were gracious enough to give Reed full access to the cable when making the deal rather than paving over it. Reed knows this place like the back of his hand and invited Josh Zentmeyer and Jake Ramsdell out for a session. Check out some snaps from a nice, bright Florida morning down at the Falls!
