Comments Off on Silver Medal at the IWWF World Championships in Milan

Hi everybody, I’m just back from the World Wakeboard Championships in Italy.

Coming off my win the week before at Wakestock, I was feeling a little more relaxed and confident. In the last couple of weeks my riding appears to be starting to come together and I was able to get through to the finals qualifying first in my heat at each stage which I was so pumped about considering all I wanted to achieve was qualify! Then in finals I surprised myself sticking some mobes as well as a heelside backside 5 and a toeside backsode 5. Unfortunately I bailed on a Whirly 5 last trick. Nonetheless I was able to grab myself second place and a silver medal, which I am stoked about. In First was the ledgendary Daniel Powers who quite honestly cleaned up with an enormous Blind Judge and a heel 7 off the double up. Details

Hi guys,

I still can’t believe that I actually came first at Wakestock! This past few days have been absolutely unbelievable! The Irish Wakeboard crew and I headed out to Wales for Wakestock.

Unusually for Wakestock the sun was shining throughout most of the weekend and the water was not horrifically choppy.

In the Women’s it was close for 2nd, 3rd and 4th but there was no doubt in anybody’s mind that Argentinian Robbie Rendo would to take the top spot. Then in 2nd was Charlotte Bryant, swiftly followed by Irish team member Sian Hurst who rode really well coming back from a fall and killing it with loads of solid inverts. Details
