Amber Takes Uniquely Girls Wakeboarding
This weekend at the Carlsbad Lagoon, national champion Amber Wing took the Uniquely girls wakeboarding. After a morning of surfing and BBQ at the beach house in Encinitas. It was time for some more board sports.
Amber made a call to her sponsor Liquid Force and asked to use the team boat for a late afternoon shred session. As soon as she had the OK, the girls loaded up and headed for the Lagoon. The crew included skateboarder Lyn-z Adams Hawkins, skiers Angeli VanLaanen, Kristi Leskinen and Grete Eliassen, snowboarder Silvia Mittermuller, and snowboard photographer Ashley Barker.
The group was stoked to see what Amber had in her bag of tricks and excited to wakesurf and wakeboard themselves. The coolest part of the Uniquely premier weekend has been the friendship and stoke between the girls. Catching up from the year’s travels for old pals and a chance to start some new life long friendships as well.
It had been 2 months since Amber rode her wakeboard due to a slight knee injury and you could tell she was in top form. Starting off with some stylish tail grabs, half cab indy, off axis toeside 360 nose grabs, and the ultimate crowd pleaser, the superwoman to fakie.
Then it was time for other girls to get some wakeboard and wakesurf turns in. With no wind and a warm sun above our heads. The session was fun for all. Watching Kristi throw down some huge inverted airs, and Silvia just couldn’t get enough of the wakesurfing. Everyone was smiling from ear to ear.
Thanks to Liquid Force, and the entire crew at the Carlsbad Lagoon for hooking up the Uniquely girls with a day in the boat.
