100 Point Lead: Amber Wing Victorious at Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop in Monroe, Extends Queen of Wake Advantage
Amber wing is still on a roll. A big roll. Oakley’s Australian ripper extended her championship standings lead to 100 points after claiming victory at the Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop in Monroe, Wash. – displaying her continued dominance this season over a talent-packed field that includes the likes of fellow Oakley rider and defending Queen of Wake Nicola Butler. “I was super nervous about finals today,” Amber said, rocking her Oakley gear and eyewear. “I really want to be the overall winner, and as the season gets closer to the end, the more the pressure builds up.”
Oakley has been synonymous with high-end style and art. So it’s no surprise that the Big O enjoys partnerships with artists entrenched in the lifestyle community. Already displaying collaborative work with artists through the Artist Series Program and similar activities, Oakley is taking its role in art and skate culture to a new level with Don Pendleton. For the first time ever, Oakley hosted an event on Wed June 29th to showcase Don’s creations. The rocking gathering – in the middle of New York’s stylish Soho community – offered media, art followers, special Guests and Oakley accounts the chance to see art that ties directly into skateboarding, pop, lifestyle and relevant culture…along with the O’s brand passion, of course.
It’s at the peak of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. And the sun is blazing. But that’s not stopping the rippers at Oakley-sponsored High Cascade Snowboard Camp from partaking in some major shreddage in Mt. Hood, Oregon.
