RECON Demo Day With Keith Lyman

On Saturday, September 9th, over 25 members of the military and their friends were treated to a day on the water with Keith Lyman on Jordan Lake in North Carolina. Lyman, who has been active in the military for 1 year and 6 months, was the inspiration behind the Axis Wake Research RECON edition towboat. Available on the A20 and A22, the RECON package offers a digi camo graphic, special branding and accents throughout. A portion of the proceeds will go to Jared Allen's Homes 4 Wounded Warriors, a non-profit who builds new houses for injured war veterans.

Even though the weather was a challenge, Lyman still put on a show and was psyched to bring his new friends to the lake. "This was a fun experience for myself and all the guys who came out," Lyman said. "Most of them knew what I used to do on the water, but might not have realized what wakeboarding was all about. They all had an awesome time and want to continue doing it."

Local rider Mitch Kappler and his family came out to support the cause. Mitch's father Brent said, "Despite the rain, this was a great event." Special thanks to ProMarine out of Durham, NC.
