BE THE BOSS
Wakesurf Contest for Everyone!
Barrel Boss started in 2008 and has been going strong ever since. We wanted to create a grassroots event that would give our customers and the lake community something the whole family could compete in. We designed the format to be low pressure and to serve as an "expression session" for our riders. There are very few rules about how you use your 2 minutes of riding and we think that is what keeps the community coming back year after year. Being that there were so few contests in those first few years of wake surfing popularity, we have had some of the all-time greats of the sport compete in Barrel Boss. Pros like Ashley Kidd and Raleigh Hager were known to throw their boards in the water a few times. We are proud to have such a sustainable and fun platform to continue to offer to our customers and with the addition of the virtual contest, we are able to offer that to more riders in all water sports.
GOING ON NOW!

Dating back to 1925, Nautique builds upon the dynasty. Today, the 2021 G-Series are reinvented and set to reinforce its reign as the best wakesurf and wakeboard boats ever created, the G23 and G25 take leaps with new wake and wave shaping capabilities.
While things have changed around the world, the tremendous quality of Hyperlite products has not, they continue to create, design and manufacture every board, binding, surfer, life vest & rope to the highest standards and stand behind each 100%. “Quality Goods Don’t Fear Time” is a firm belief shared amongst the entire Hyperlite team.
Having twice won the WSIA “Manufacturer of the Year” award, Liquid Force is dedicated to RELENTLESS INNOVATION, progressive design, maximum functionality, and unparalleled quality.
A non-venting venture of artists, engineers, riders, and others as owners making riding devices collectively crafted for the imagination of wakeboarding. Their axiom will always be based on products and tales of tomorrow's riding. A chance to make a point, confront the norm, and answer the questions why.
The idea behind Phase 5 Wakesurf Boards began over 30 years ago, and they have been perfecting this idea with sister company Zap Skimboards ever since people starting riding their boards behind boats.
