One of the best worldwide initiatives is rolling back around and is happening on SUNDAY, JULY 23rd out here at TSR and around the world! Four years ago, longtime towed water sports industry leader and #PassTheHandle co-founder, Zane Schwenk, conceptualized the idea with Shaun Murray to share their passion with first-timers on a larger scale. Since then, the initiative has grown significantly through word of mouth, social media and participation.
“The movement to spread the love of towed water sports has continued to grow and bring more happy faces to the water... Our industry, including dealers and the passionate people that love to share the sport have been amazing in their efforts to support #PassTheHandle. It’s like nothing I have ever seen before."
Pass the Handle is incredibly important to us here at TSR, as it is a day completely 100% dedicated to sharing our passion of wakeboarding and other towed water sports with anyone and EVERYONE. We want to #passthehandle to as many people as possible this Sunday, 7/23, so please join us for a day of...more

The Golden Mic podcast is a one-of-a-kind way to stay up to date with the wakeboarding and water sports industry as a whole. Dano has always been an enthusiast, but decided to try and connect with people on a different level. "I decided that it was time to do something different than everyone else in the industry. I thrive off the ability to hear, listen, interact and learn about the people who make this industry tick and I thought it was time to share all my experiences with the public. I get such a special view on the industry, from behind the microphone and want you to experience it with me. Since I am always on the go, I thought it would be nice to provide a convenient podcast for the watersports audience. I listen to podcasts in the gym, in the car, while sitting at my computer working, virtually anytime! They are...more

My name is Collin Gee and I'm a Hip Hop artist and Texas native actively involved in the action sports lifestyle. Over the last decade I have been dedicated to fusing my passion for hip hop, skateboarding and wakeskating by competing and performing at action sports events such as the Wakeskate Tour, Australian Wake Awards and Cablestock. In 2013, I played over 50 shows around the southern states while opening up for artists amongst the likes of Big KRIT, Currency and Action Bronson. These performances include both the House of Blues in Houston and New Orleans. My influences are Hip Hop and Reggae groups such as Atmosphere, The Roots, Slightly Stoopid, SOJA, Dirty Heads and The Movement. My debut music project entitled PANGe(e)A is now available for free online. Playing at X Games Austin would be a dream come true and I look forward to bringing the good vibes ! Much love.more

Thursday afternoon started off with all qualifying events for Amateur riding events, including traditional cable, features only, and boat divisions, along with the big air kicker comp- which was absolutely awesome to watch! Those riders really know how to shred hard, and “big air” is definitely what they gave us. Daniel Grant came out on top of the podium for his hangtime, style, and difficulty off the kicker, followed by Yonel Cohen in 2nd, with Thomas Elwood claiming 3rd. That evening the premiere showing of The Debut by Liquid Force was shown up in Wahoo’s, where everyone was able to meet and talk to the stars of the film, followed by an epic performance by Collin Gee!
