What’s a buoyrope and what can it do? What DOESN’T it do, is a better question. Every once in a while we like to highlight products that are cool, cutting edge, practical or just plain must haves and this one falls under all those categories. On our recent rip to Shasta Lake we had the good fortune of encountering the BuoyROPE and let’s just say we haven’t been the same since. Between the Buoyrope and it’s cousin, the looprope, you might just ahve found your new best friend. The video illustrates just some of the uses of a BUOYROPE.
We love ingenuity and think that this swing has a lot of it. Wakeboarding takes a lot of balance and what better way than this to teach the lil ones than this? And we are thinking the bigger kids who might otherwise be too big and “cool” for a swing might just complain if you took this down.
I stumbled upon this and thought it was a great share…the pic and product are available here: http://www.cedarworks.com/blog/2009/02/skating-the-summer-away

Our new T-shirts are in and we can’t decide what we like best. The grey or pink for kids or our new grey (it comes in black too!) hoodie T-shirt for women. Similar to yoga shirts in that they are sheer and lightweight, they are our favorite ones yet. That’s SAMSON for ya. Like our Towers our t-shirts go beyond expectations.
Remember when we posted the coolest t-shirt ever the other day? Well, it has a twin that is pink! While the other is a steel grey color, this one is a sweet shade of pink. Of course the other one could be used for a girl too but what girly girl doesn’t love a good pink t-shirt! Especially when it says SAMSON SPORTS on it?
Check out these great wallpapers from liquidforce. I’m likin’ this one in particular as it is just too wicked with the clean slate of rock behind him and then his board a blaze of color. They have eight or ten different wallpapers from you to choose from. All featuring their wakeboards of course. Download your own at http://www.liquidforce.com/downloads.html then dream right from your desk about riding behind your Samson Sports tower.
While still a relatively young sport, wakesurfing has deep roots from the surfing aspect of it. It just is more accessible to everyone – say from 4 hours inland on the west coast to 4 hours away from the east coast, just about everyone across the US is close to some kind of body of water that would be ideal for wakesurfing! We thought this primer video on wakesurfing was a killer. So don’t be shy to get a board this summer and learn yet another sport behind your Samson tower. Enjoy!

How to fly behind a Samson Sports Wakeboard Tower? Just check out this pic for details…oh and practice 16 seasons starting at age 7.
While on vacation in Idaho, we had the chance to meet up with Samson Team rider, Chris Craig. He was seriously flying behind Samson Wakeboard Tower on the X-Star. Despite the imperfect water, Chris’s ride was wholly impressive. Chris was amazing to watch and even gave tips to the novice riders who rode after him. (Trust me, that is a tough act to follow!) Chris was the first team rider to check out the new speakers as well. Thanks Chris!
