Axis Wake Signs Guenther Oka
Reports have surfaced that Guenther Oka has signed with Axis Wake. The 21 year old gets the dream sponsorship deal for any wakeboarder… a boat! Landing a boat sponsor was not a matter of if, but when for the talented rider. Guenther is an Alliance Wake Rider of the Year winner, owns an X Games gold medal and already has a dream list of sponsors (Liquid Force, O’Neill, and Red Bull).
This piece of news was first leaked by sources at Alliance Wake. The photo above was taken at the Moomba Masters earlier this month and features Guenther with an Axis sticker prominently displayed on his wakeboard right next to all his sponsors. We’d say this is pretty good proof that the deal is finalized.
While there hasn’t been an official announcement from Axis Wake or Guenther Oka yet, look out for one in the coming days.
Guenther is expected to be one of the athletes competing on the Pro Wake Tour this Summer. Him and 15 of the other top wakeboarders in the world will be here in Portland for tour stop #3 on July 11th. This event will be held at Scoggins Valley Park in Gaston, OR. Stay tuned for more event info.
