2012 Transworld Wakeboard magazine Wake Awards
The world’s best wakeboarders and wakeskate athletes all came together for the biggest night in Wake, The Wake Awards. This is the pinnacle event to showcase the world’s best riders and acknowledge and reward them for the hard work and insane tricks performed throughout the year. The atmosphere at the awards is always top shelf. Riders and families get all dolled up for this one night of fun.
The Fox wake team was nominated in some way shape or form in almost every award presented. The team had an epic evening dominating the awards with 4 victories. Honestly it was mind blowing from my point of view but warranted at the same time as the Fox Wake team is really the strongest wake team in the industry.
Breaking through first was BFY productions and their epic movie Defy (the Danny Harf project) with Best video of the year. Danny and Sean Kilgus both owned this category from the start. Next up was best web video edit of the year. Super excited to say Reed Hansen’s Battle falls edit was the winner. This unique piece was able to break through with the win and take top honors. If you haven’t seen this piece please check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHjQ9LKpQSA . The wakeskate footage shot is the most epic sight you have ever seen. Another victory for BFY productions and Sean Kilgus and the Fox team. Danny Harf kills it with the best video section of the year with his movie Defy. A well-deserved award for Danny. Reed Hansen and Dieter Humpsch land the best wakeskate section from a video with Dieter’s piece Noisia Vision another mind blowing section from the boys.
Want to thank everyone involved for this year’s event. Thanking my team for their dedication to the sport and having the drive to want to perform and win year in and year out.
