Comments Off on Wakeboarding at Dublin Docklands’ Festival

What an amazing hot weekend for the Dublin Docklands’ Festival. The sun shone for the entire time and there were thousands of people there. Jonny Crawford , from Mastercraft, gave slalom demos and Lindsay Whelan, from the Irish team, and I gave wakeboarding demos over the two days.  The water wasn’t the best as the area is very small and there is a backwash from the walls but we managed to throw a few things which kept the crowd cheering!

Comments Off on Summer Wakeboarding in 9 Degrees Centigrade…..

It’s unbelievable here this month, really cold. Where is our summer? Last weekend in one day we hailstones and thunder and lightning, and this weekend we had hailstones again. Today the wind blew up to gale force and to cap it all our boat broke down for the first time ever since we bought it in 2007. It looks like breaking all records for the coldest May ever in Ireland if it keeps up like this for the rest of the month. I wish I could be in Florida or Xtreme Gene in Spain! Fingers crossed it picks up for next weekend.

A grey day in May!
