Chris Laske and Mike Dowdy started wakeboarding when they were teenagers. Years later, after countless rides and competitions, they are far from bored with the sport, and at Wake Sessions they’ve branched out from wakeboarding into water skiing and other means of flying behind a motor boat. During the duo’s private and group lessons, their 2013 Malibu Wakesetter tears across Loon Lake, pulling veteran athletes and complete beginners alike. Like pretending to be a construction worker, wakeboarding is impossible without the proper gear, so the crew stocks equipment from high-caliber brands such as Hyperlite.
