AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- slayshTank (http://slayshtank.com) is a riding-based board and apparel manufacturer founded upon the lifestyle of wakesurfing, wakeskating, skateboarding, and music. With the recent explosion in crossover wake sports such as wakesurfing and wakeskating, slayshTank and the Riders Coalition is carving a new path within the action sports industry. By focusing on collaborative content and video delivery, slayshTank has quickly established global brand exposure and become the fastest growing community of wakesurfers, wakeskaters, and skateboarders on the Internet.
What started as a wakesurf blog in early 2009 has given way to key partnerships with existing industry brands, new product development and manufacturing, an apparel line and one of the most unique sponsorship programs in action sports. In today's web-based world, the founders of slayshTank have discovered a way to bridge the gap between professional and lifestyle Riders and the high cost of content development and delivery through the production skills of the Coalition.
In early 2010, slayshTank partnered with Shred Stixx Wakesurf Company (http://shredstixx.com) to expedite brand exposure and claim a piece of the inland invasion of the surf culture. Founded in 1999, Shred Stixx is regarded as the first company to develop a true surf style wakesurf board and will have a quiver of 9 wakesurfers heading into next season. With this relationship came the opportunity to sponsor the top Riders in the sport and launch an apparel brand around the emerging sport of wakesurfing. Since this time, slayshTank has worked closely with Shred Stixx on all aspects of brand development and has become the exclusive online retailer for all Shred Stixx products and wakesurfing accessories.
Within months of partnering with Shred Stixx, slayshTank began sponsoring some of the top Riders in wakeskating and began developing their own wood wakeskate to broaden their reach in the cross over-wake market. In less than 16 months slayshTank has launched a line of wakeskates and added over 80 sponsorships to the Riders Coalition while developing a website that delivers original content multiple times per day.
With divisions for wakesurf (http://slayshtank.com/wakesurf), wakeskate (http://slayshtank.com/wakeskate), skateboard (http://slayshtank.com/skateboard), and music (http://slayshtank.com/music), slayshTank has cultivated a community site with the ability to promote and bring new products to market. As a lifestyle sponsorship company, slayshTank not only supports some of the top Riders in wakesurfing and wakeskating but they also recognize the skills and contributions of the individuals who continue to make their shared vision a reality. From graphic design, photography, web design, film & music production, the Riders Coalition consists of athletes, creative minds, and determined individuals.
