Liquid Force’s Danny Hampson wins Alliance Wakeboard Magazine’s Rider of the Year

Liquid Force, leader in wake apparel and hard goods, would like to congratulate Danny Hampson on being named Alliance Wakeboard Magazine’s Rider of the Year!

Danny has had a difficult few years with injuries, so to come back strong and be named the top rider in the sport is a huge accomplishment.  This past year he’s had top video sections, elevated his contest riding, and really become an ambassador of the sport.  It’s all a testament to his strong work ethic and abilities as a rider.

"Danny has elevated his status to an icon within the wakeskate world," stated Tony Finn, Liquid Force President. "His spirit, natural ability, and dedication to wakeskating are the perfect compliment to what Liquid Force represents. Danny is the full package and we are super stoked to see him accomplish his goals!"

"It's a real honor to be named Alliance’s Rider of the Year!  To be in a class with some of the past winners is ridiculous!” said Danny.  "Thanks for all of the love and support from everybody.  I am just so happy I’m healthy and able to ride to my full potential again.  I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do.”

Liquid Force just released Danny’s new Obscura signature SST wakeskate for 2009.  Look for Danny to be hanging out at BROstock, Liquid Force’s homegrown wake festival next summer.  Be sure to check out www.liquidforce.com for additional details and updates.
