I just arrived in Ukraine for the European Championships after spending five days in Germany at one of the sickest comps in Europe: Chill and Ride.
As you can imagine, we did lots of riding, and even more chilling!! On the Friday, we watched the Wakesurfing which was pretty cool as they all were killing it!! Then on Saturday, after a massive party on the Friday night, the Team Challenge took place. This involves a group of people going on the one boat and riding against another boat. Fortunately our team came second which we were all so pumped about!!! YEEEEEEEE
Then on the Sunday we all got down to business. The qualifying, semis and finals were all on the one day and this meant a lot of riding for those who were to get to the finals. Unfortunately, my Irish Team mates David Coates and Paul Johnston both just missed finals which was a bummer as they could both have killed it. In the end it was Dylan Mitchell (RSA), Nikita Martianov( Rus), Sam Carne (UK), Lucas Langlois and Yann Calvez (FRA) and myself competing in Finals. The standard was mental as we were towed behind a new X Star (huge wake) and a Mastercraft X55, which also kicks up a ridiculously big wake! Details

Just back from Germany where Sian Hurst (Irish Team rider) and I went to enter in a contest called Chill and Ride. It was a very different and unique contest. Instead of sitting on the shore waiting whilst others ride you sit on your ‘own’ boat and ‘Chill’ all day and then when you ride, it is on your own boat which is pretty sick because you are used to the wake.
There were about 30 wakeboard boats and about 8,000 people at the evewnt which was pretty sick. It’s sort of what I can imagine Brostock would be like. There were two events. First was a Team Challenge and Sian and I were on the German MasterCraft team and we managed to win the challenge. Then there was a wakesurfing comp and an amateur wakeboarding comp and then finally a Pro contest and Sian and I both took first place which was brilliant. Details
