How can you not have a ton of fun wakeboarding when this is your backyard? Andrew Adams getting down while filming for Lipsmack in the Shredtown park. Photo: Bryan Soderlind

Lipsmack is one of those videos that brings you back to what wakeboarding is all about: having fun and not taking everything so seriously. The group of riders who have come to epitomize that sort of wakeboarding lifestyle the past few years are the Shredtown crew: Andrew Adams, Chris Abadie, and Davis Griffin. Just watch some of their web videos and you can instantly tell how much fun they’re having, whether it’s scouting and hitting new winching spots, building something totally creative in their backyard, or even riding behind the boat. Patrick Wieland was able to capture all their creativity and edit it into a whole section in a full length video… Not only is the closing section of Lipsmack, which features Andrew, Chris, Davis, and some of the other Slingshot riders in the Shredtown HQ, a ton of fun to watch, but the riding is unbelievably legit and progressive. Giant land gaps, creative rails, funky jibs, and huge kicker hits all go down, and by the time it’s over you’re left wanting more. If you love to wakeboard you will love Lipsmack and this section. Go get it.
