Although slightly kooky, there is also something very rad about wake skating and no one radder than Ben Horan. Its hard to front on a kid who’s a professional wake skater but tells people he’s a skateboarder.

12 August 2009, 18.23 | Posted in films, premieres, wakeskate | No comments »

As we told you before with the release of the Todd Selby x Nike 6.0 Ben Horan shots, Nike 6.0 is going big into wakeskate. As a major jumping off, they will premiere their first-ever wakeskate movie, Aquafrolics, starring Horan, Nick Taylor, Matt Manzari, Andrew Pastura, James Balzer, and Silas Thurman in Orlando on Saturday, August 22 as part of the Surf Expo weekend. No longer wakeboarding’s little brother, wakeskate has evolved into a sublime artform owing way more to skateboarding than to wake any day. Won’t be in Orlando? Not to worry. Aquafrolics will be available in its entirety on the 6.0 site later this month. Stay tuned for more on this growing movement.
