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.
