Liquid Force, leader in wake apparel and hard goods, announced that it has re-signed wakeboarder Shawn Watson to a long term athlete contract.
Shawn will continue to lead a team consisting of some of the most influential athletes in wake sports. Liquid Force will continue to be the exclusive wakeboard, binding, vest, and rope/handle used by Shawn.
"Shawn has elevated his status to icon within the wake industry," stated Tony Finn, Liquid Force President. "His spirit, natural ability, and dedication to wakeboarding are the perfect compliment to what Liquid Force represents. Shawn is the full package and we are very excited to have him flying the Liquid Force flag for many years to come!"
"It's a real honor to wakeboard for Liquid Force. I have been riding LF products since I was a kid, and now I know I will be here for a long time into the future. To be a part of the best team and riding the best products on the planet, I couldn’t be happier!" said Shawn. "I love the new gear, my new board and bindings for 2009 are going to blow some minds!"
