PASADENA, JUNE 11th, 2021 - Funktronic Labs’ gnarly, 80’s-inspired skateBOATING title, Wave Break, debuts on Switch and Steam today with a new vibrant park creator and  “Weezy Mode”, a level centered around Weezer’s new stream-safe song, “Tell Me What You Want", which is available now after premiering in their headline performance at Summer Game Fest’s Kick Off Live.

We’re very proud to be a part of the resurgence of skateboarding games, and we hope that Wave Break can find its place amongst the list of all of the other classic arcade skating titles that came before,” Eddie Lee, President of Funktronic Labs. “I believe that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans would appreciate how we built upon a classic formula with our own modern take, and a fresh new style.

Request your code now!
For review purposes, we suggest 3-4 hours of gameplay
to get a good feel for the game.
