Andrew Adams - We don’t limit ourselves to the ideas of the mainstream. To keep things fresh we are always changing the ways we ride our wakeboards.
Rewarded with Fun:
We are heavily influenced and inspired by snowboarding and the creative aspects that snow has tapped into. When we started to get into wakeboarding we noticed how many possibilities there were within the sport, and how so many ideas have not been put into action yet. From the beginning we have always done what we had the most fun doing, and pretty quickly we found building and hitting new creative obstacles was what we enjoyed the most. We put a lot of time and effort into building a lot of the features we hit but there is nothing more rewarding than building something crazy and then taking that first hit on it. Overall, we are constantly looking for new things to be done and more creative obstacles to build — that’s what pushes us to continue to wakeboard every day.
While we were filming for Lipsmack a couple of us started talking about doing a one-footer off a pole jam we had. We tried it a couple of times but it never ended up working out. A few weeks later I was riding at Hydrous Wake Park for the day and happened to think about the one-footer. I tried it a couple of times that day and it came pretty easily. I was stoked because it was such a crazy feeling that you aren’t used to. We flew Bryan Soderlind out to Shredtown to shoot some photos for us and I knew that the one-footer was something I really wanted to focus on that trip. I did some Indy one-footers and the photos were looking awesome, but I knew I wanted to grab it differently. The next set I started to grab them tail and everything came together on a couple of the photos. We ended up getting some really good stuff from the shoot.
