About Us

SBC Wakeboarding Magazine is just one of the amazing action-sports media titles under the SBC Media Brand, acquired by C.J. Group of Companies in 2015 and managed by C.J. Oyster Publishing.

With over three decades of history, the SBC brand has been a leader in pioneering and supporting the progression and evolution of action sports, in partnership with the leading industry brands since day one. Whether it’s creating Canada’s first national slopestyle and halfpipe snowboard series; leading the charge to build Eastern Canada’s first major skate plaza; bringing the first live bands to the slopes of Whistler, Lake Louise, Mont Tremblant and Blue Mountain; staging the first night halfpipe event in North America; establishing the world’s biggest wakeboarding contest; throwing the biggest parties in action sports; or supporting the most legit contests and films big and small; it’s always been about doing it right for the riders by the riders, as it always should be!

“SBC is woven into the fabric of skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding and action sports across Canada. Our vision and leadership will ensure athletes, content producers and brands continue to have a prestigious national, multi-media platform to showcase their sports, lifestyles and products,” said Jay Mandarino, CEO and President of the C.J.
