Slide Show…April 29th…an event to remember
It’ll be history in the making this Friday, April 29th, at the Carlsbad Lagoon.  The legendary site has teamed up with Wakesports Unlimited to officially kick-off the Liquid Force Slide Show.  Necrason, Harrington, Lyman, Watson, Grace, Cantor, Wallace, Mendes, Stephens and more are getting their hands dirty transforming the beautiful Carlsbad Lagoon into a Slide Show-ready machine.  When things kick-off, pro riders Shane, Watson, Aaron Reed, Collin, Tino, Lyman, Benny G, Gregg, Melissa and Amber will get technical on the rail and then later will go extra large in the double up demo.   There will be a mini competition, as all pros will be competing for the “crowd favorite” award.  Meanwhile a selected few amateur riders will have the opportunity to compete for a “secret prize” as well as a chance to move on to the Slide Show finals.
Events start at 12:00 and are free of charge!  Monster Energy, Malibu Boats, Reef, Spy and all other sponsors will be throwing free stuff out, so don’t miss out. Bring your friends and family members and get ready for an action packed day of fun!  Rumor also has it that the legendary Rick Thorne (Tony Hawk Tour Announcer, Pro BMX rider), and Wee-Man (Jackass star and pro skater) will be in attendance to check out the action. Go to and   for more info.  If you’re not too techy and would rather talk to a live body, go ahead and call Josh and the “Lagoon crew” at 760 434 3089, or Tyler and the Wakesports crew at (858) 277-5757… they’ll hook you up with all of the info you’ll need.  Don’t forget LF towels, beach chairs, camera, sunscreen and a pen for autographs.  
LF Films…Blah, Blah, Blog
Ever wonder what Mr. Justin Stephens and the LF Films crew are up to? To help you enquiring minds keep in tune with what’s going on, Justin started a blog on . There’s a lot involved in the whole process of making the best wake videos around and it’s pretty interesting to keep up with the filming super hero and his quest to bring Hollywood to wakeboarding. Now all of the world can be in on the adventures of LF Films and the LF team.  You’ll find links to the teaser for the up and coming team video “The Truth” as well as an LF Films Pod cast where you can subscribe and download super cool videos to your I-Tunes.  Justin has been busy filming for the upcoming release, so be sure to check in and see what’s happening.   
LF’s new Malibu Boats are ready to rock!
Amongst the lush green farm fields of Merced CA sits the beautiful Malibu factory.   After a quick tour and history lesson you’ll find the location has roots starting from the beginning of boat building as well as employees that have been with the company since it started.  This is similar to Liquid Force in San Diego, where the sport was birthed, and the employees have been there from the start.  As we toured the factory we found it amazing.  The attention to detail throughout the entire boat building process is what makes a Malibu owner (Liquid Force) comfortable, confident, and most of all proud.  We’ve already rocked the 21’ V Ride on the Carlsbad Lagoon and love it.  The 23’ VLX will be on display and used at every Slide Show event so be sure to check them out.  Once you jump in them, you’ll immediately appreciate the quality craftsmanship of a Malibu.
