Chill & Ride, Podium

I sorta just won Chill and Ride powered by NISSAN. 😄😄.
A storm blew up mid finals, so they called off the contest as it was too dangerous to ride. So they took the results from the previous round and split the prize money amongst all the finalists. That’s why I said ‘sorta won!! Haha.
Still an insane weekend out here in Germany! Also congrats to my Irish buddies Sian Hurst on her first place and to Aisling Deegan Wakeboarder for making the podium in her first ever pro contest!

Comments Off on Chill & Ride, Germany – Team Challenge

Our Team won the Team Challenge. Our team included Irish team rider Sian Hurst, UK riders Sam Carne and Ed Blundell. We are all deeeelighted. Also, another Irish team rider, Aisling Deegan, was on the team that took the Bronze! Great day for the Irish! Today is the individual contest with a normal format so fingers crossed for that!!

What a great weekend at the Irish Wakeboard Nationals in Enniskillen. Despite the awful weather (rain and strong winds), it was a really tight Open Men final with everyone killing it. I’m so stoked to have managed to retain my Open Men title for the fifth year in a row. Congrats to Paul Johnston on taking 2nd and David Coates on 3rd. Well done to Sian Hurst on holding on to her Open Ladies title and big congrats to all the young groms who stepped up their game and are landing more inverts and spins than ever. Thanks also to all the organisers and sponsors and to Nils Kroon and Nicolas Subjobert for coming over to judge Here are some photos. Thanks, David

Comments Off on Wakeboarding Demos & Comp.

Hi all,

It’s been a busy week commuting between Drogheda and Dublin. The Irish Maritime Festival was held over three days in Drogheda and David Coates, Pete Stewart, Nicole Carroll and I did demos. Although the water was very choppy the weather was great and there were thousands of people there over the few days so it was brilliant to showcase the sport. On the Saturday I drove to Dublin to compete in the Pro division of Wakedock Grass Routes Tour. I’m not really a cable rider so I was stoked to take 2nd place. Irish team riders Aisling Deegan and Nicole Carroll took 1st and 2nd place at the comp. and both qualified for the Wakestock Rail Contest next month. Big congrats to them.

Just home after about 24 hours travel from Korea….. While I had made it through to semi-finals unfortunately there was a protest on the scoring from another team and it was revised and I just missed getting through by one point!! It’s such a pity but we all had a good time and big congrats to Lindsay Whelan and Aisling Deegan for making Finals. Time to go ride in Cavan again before heading to Xtreme Gene later this month.

Having a brilliant time out here in Busan, Korea at the Wakeboard World Championships. There are over 200 athletes from 30 countries and the level of riding just gets higher each year.

The Koreans are looking after us very well and so far we have had 5 of our 7 Irish Team Riders advance to the next round. I was stoked to qualify first in my heat and big congrats also to Paul Johnston, David Coates, Lindsay Whelan and Aisling Deegan…. Details

Our ‘Banterful’ Trip

Last week we had an unreal trip travelling the country in convoy with Dan & Rebecca Kavanagh, Paul Johnston, Sian Hurst, Pete Stewart, Brian & Aisling Deegan, Lindsay Whelan and a few others. Luke Lee of Liquid Intelligence Photography took some sick shots, hopefully we’ll see some later. We rode all over the country, on the Shannon, Lough Sillan in Cavan and the River Bann and Lough Erne in Northern Ireland.

Hi guys,

Just back home from another amazing weekend at the Irish nationals at Lough Muckno Wakeboard Club. We had ups and downs with the weather but when it came to finals yesterday the water was practically glass!

On Saturday we saw awesome riding from all the riders across all the categories and it was so great to see all the young guns killing it! It looks like a lot of them have bright futures ahead!!

After the first day of the Championships on Saturday we had a best trick, best attempt and best crash contest. Loads of new tricks were tried, and many edges too!! It was sick to see Sian Hurst stick the first ever mobe by a European athlete in a European contest when she nailed that whirly! Big congrats  Sian! Then I was also delighted to stick my first ever heel 9 straight after!! 🙂 So it was a contest well worthwhile for everybody 🙂 Details
