3 Dimensional: Oakley Wake Team Drops Stunning 3D Film Project in Orlando, To Hit Stores in Europe & Latin America
Oakley’s Wake Team is full of the most dynamic, high-flying wakeboarders and wake skaters on the Planet – packed with some of the most tantalizing tricks anywhere. So it was only appropriate to give fans a front seat view of their aerial insanity…on the big screen…in 3D. Atop the Orlando (Florida) skyline at Star Tower, the O Team kicked off the season with a super exclusive event set to debut their stunning 3D video project.
German Wake: Oakley Europe Team Ripper Dominik Gührs Claims WWA Wakeboard World Championship Title in 2011
Oakley’s North American Team Rippers aren’t the only ones making wakes in the industry. Team Wakeboard Ripper Dominik Gührs of Germany threw down all year long in 2011…enough to realize his dream of being crowned the WWA World Championship after a killer showing in Abu Dhabi early December.
It just keeps getting sicker every year. Oakley’s incredible team of Wake rippers reaffirmed their dominant presence in the industry at the 2011 Transworld Wake Awards in Orlando recently – racking up major honors and hardware after an all-time year of brilliance across the board. A typically vibrant celebration at the Surf Expo trade show, the Awards, laced with Oakley branding, went off yet again this year. All on the heels of a clean King of Wake Series sweep – with Young Star Harley Clifford claiming the men’s crown and fellow Aussie Amber Wing grabbing the Women’s Title. Add the Junior Pro Tour Title secured by O’s up and coming young rider, Shota Tezuka of Japan, and it’s safe to say that Oakley’s team is poised to continue dominance today and shape the future of the sport tomorrow.
