Best Wake Team
I had a thought the other day, while flipping through an issue of Transworld Wakeboarding magazine, about the best wake team in the industry. It can be any board, boat, apparel, etc. sponsor that is associated with wakeboarding or the wakeboarding lifestyle. It doesn't matter if a certain athlete is on one, or multiple teams -- only about how that team stacks up against other wake teams. This dream team is a combination of Wakeboarding AND wakeskating.

For the longest time I always thought that Air Nautiques had, hands down, the dopest team. But I'm not sure of that based on some of the videos that Mastercraft has been pumping out recently (X-Star one month old, Trial by Fire, Shota Tezuka, etc.). Or Oakley (see Danny Hampson -- A Day in the Life or A Day at Harley's). Anything that CWB has featuring Josh Twelker, Derek Cook, or Mike Dowdy. Liquid Force and Obscura -- enough said. The O'neill team; I digress. Although this debate could last forever and cannot easily be settled, I'm convinced its the Fox wake team. Just look at the family photo in the latest Transworld: volume 20 Issue 06 August 2012 -- and then you'll see why.

Fox wins for double ups but liquid force wins for contests.

^^^ rockstar definitely has a stacked team and some vets as well. Cool thread, my biased vote is for LF though haha. Got to support my favorite company

LF has hands down the sickest team if we're talking about board companies.

Ronix has the best as far as legends of the sport who were great comp riders and the best film riders. Parks, Danny, Chad and Ruck. Plus they have one of the best(if no the best) wakeskater in Reed Hanson. They also have Shota and Deano. They might not have the best current contest team but probably the most influential to the sport.
