The SESSIONS Wake Family has had a good last couple months and have been hard at work, shredding the wake and building some dope sh#t like only the PROJECTS crew can. The infamous Pat Panakos, Triple P, Pancakes (whatever you call this rail-building-master) has been hard at work building some of the best sliders for Hyperlite, up at Radar Lake. More recently, he built one of the best setups ever at WAKESTOCK 2005. Pat is now working on possibly building something special for Surf Expo in Orlando. We all know Pat can build and coach, but check out his part in the new films “Genetics” and “Such is Life” and peep his skills on the water.

And speaking of WAKESTOCK, Keith Lidberg killed it once again and won the Billabong Pro Railslide event, taking home some nice loot in the process. Keith has been on a tear recently with the sliders, having just won the Blacktop Oasis Rail Contest in California and some more cash to blow at the bar.

Brandon Thomas also threw a major hammer this season as the Pro Wakeskate Tour Champion. He finished well above fellow Hyperlite riders George Daniels and Brian Grubb, who placed second and third. BT has been riding strong and just finished in a solid fourth place at Nationals.


Nice work boys, keep holdin’ it down! Keep an eye out for these SESSIONS team riders as well as others like Robbie Jacques and Benny Hanisch representing SESSIONS and the P-Unit. Also, look out for all of them in the new SESSIONS sponsored releases “Genetics” and “Such is Life”.
