Rhett Whatley has been mixing music for years.
Before there was a social media marketing team here at Ambush there was the lone wolf of the web, Rhett Whatley, who handled it all himself. Rhett graduated Kennesaw State University with a degree in Marketing while working at the shop (Ambush Board Co.) and our ecommerce companies (BuyWake.com/BuySkateShoes.com/BuySnow.com/CheapSk8Shoes.com). He helped our business establish an online persona and we continue to carry forward that mantle today. We are grateful for all the support and we promise to continue to support him and his music!
In his humble beginnings of sampling and layering beats he was good…I remember thinking, “Dude this is your third track you’ve ever made?” Fast forward and observing from a far, Rhett would lace me up with every mp3 he was making. At one point, I looked in my iTunes library under the folder I made for him and there was over 100 songs equaling 5 hours worth of tracks. Rhett has an extensive background in wakeboarding and competed on The Pro Wake Tour for a few years. I can’t remember the year, but back in the day he won the PWT in Portland. Immersed in wakeboarding his early music could be heard on such wake projects as “The Way” DVD. It’s pretty solid to be a rider in a legit wake video, but to have also done the soundtrack is literally unheard of.
