    There’s no denying it. Oakley has one of the, if not the sickest Wakeboard teams on the Planet. The epic seasons pumped out by our Global Wakeboard Stars as of late – lined with awards and recognitions from their peers and fans alike – tell the story in itself: Our riders are smokin’. And three of them are one awesome representation of the bunch. From Harley Clifford – arguably the best young Wakeboarder on Earth – to Amber Wing and Nicola Butler, who are undisputedly the most formidable, yet beautiful, female rippers anywhere, this is one killer team in every sense. To warm up for the coming pro tour season, the trio spent some time in Harley and Amber’s home turf in Australia to ride, compete, chill and pick up some extre honors. Hear what Oakley Wakeboard Team Manager Jack Blodgett had to say and shoot about it all (below words, images and video by Jack):

    It’s about that time of year to get down in the desert…Oakley Wake style. The Oakley Riot at the Sea Dubai Festival is dropping yet again at Nasimi Beach in Dubai on Nov. 19, set to step it up from the adrenaline-fueled, double-up wakeboarding contest that raged on the Arabian Peninsula last year.
