Approximately 40 riders braved the 60-degree water, most trunking
it, and proved that they are die-hard wakeboarders at the Arizona
Wakeboard Association’s season opener.
A nicer day could not have been ordered for this contest;
relatively calm winds and plenty of sunshine without the searing
heat made it an awesome day for riders and spectators at Two Cow
Cove. Two incredible sponsors teamed up to set the bar high for
every event to follow.
Action Watersports and O’Brien kicked off the first event in
grand style. Riders from all over the country have been anticipating
what the Epic 23V would bring to the wakeboard scene.
It brought a huge wake and plenty of room for friends. Equipped
with a Volvo 8.1 L V8 and 4,000 pounds of ballast, the 23V launched
AWA riders to incredible heights.
O’Brien ensured that the first-place winners started the season
safely with a brand new USCG Neoprene vest. Second-place winners
received an O’Brien team jacket, and third-place winners won an
O’Brien pint glass and a No Fear T-shirt.
Action Watersports added to O’Brien’s generous list of prizes by
giving each winner an Epic T-shirt.
Congratulations to all of the winners of the AWA season opener,

Malibu Mayhem is back! On May 6, Paradise Watersports and Ski
Pro bring the sixth Malibu Mayhem to Two Cow Cove. Any rider who has
participated in Malibu Mayhem in the past knows that this event is
not to be missed! Keep posted for exciting news regarding this
awesome annual event.
Brostock at Lake Powell: Liquid Force is putting on a
Houseboat Festival/Party with the folks at Lake Powell this
summer. They will be having their 2007 product line catalog shoot
from June 3-9 then will be sticking around for the weekend of the 10
This is when the real fun will happen! They are going to
try to re-create a "Boardstock-like" event in the middle of Lake
What better place to have a LF event? The crew from
Alliance will be there for the weekend to film an episode of
PULL. The idea is fairly
simple: Get as many houseboats on the water as possible and have a
couple of fun days of riding and partying!
They plan on taking over an entire cove at Powell. They
will have the whole LF team with them and will be hanging out with
anyone who shows up.
There will be once-a-day demos by the LF team in the middle of
all of the houseboats, but for the most part it will be just a
free-for-all, weekend of fun. Go to
mention the Liquid Force Brostock to reserve your houseboat, and
you’ll get a 54-foot houseboat (sleeps 12) and a PWC for $3,800!
This is approximately $1,000 less than the normal price.
