Comments Off on Wakeboarding – from Dublin to Orlando

It has been a really eventful couple of weeks! After finally finishing my exams, I had a week at home to ride and have the banter with all the lads. After this we had such a sick weekend riding at the Dublin Docklands Festival. There were about 50,000 people there over the whole weekend. Thanks to Des Burke-Kennedy for the photos.

Comments Off on Great wakeboarding weather!

 

It’s official! We’re on course for the coldest March in 50 years. Not only has it been cold but  it’s been really windy too. Another eight weeks (and all my college exams) before I head to Florida. Wish I could fast track the time. Details

Wakeboarding & Banter

Hey Guys,

Just back from a really really fun weekend riding at my place in Cavan. Fortunately, the weather was actually okay for most of the weekend so we were able to get a good bit of shredding done!

On Saturday it was myself, Sian Hurst, Sam Carne (who hadn’t ridden in the cold for 7 years!!) and Brian Deegan who took his first set after 11 months off the water due to his knee surgery. We had a great time and the water was like glass, and the sun even popped out for about 12 minutes!

Then on Saturday we were joined by Ashley Murray (Big Ash) to come for a shred or two. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite as on par as Saturday, but none the less, we all managed to have a slick time in the rain, and do a few cool tricks and we had a lot of banter.

Looking forward to getting out to Xtreme Gene in Spain very soon before heading to Aus for the World Cup in March 🙂 Details

In memory of Cianne Naji

This weekend the entire Wakeboard community worldwide, and all of Ci’s friends and family, were devastated when she passed away. Ci fought a long hard battle against Cystic Fibrosis for her whole life. Despite this she was still one of the most banterful and cheerful people anybody could ever come across. Ci was always up for having fun and really was a great example of living life to the fullest. Details

New 2013 O’Brien Gear

So stoked to get my new 2013 gear out here in Florida. Have been shredding this week and the new Coda board and GTX bindings are sick!

Comments Off on Weekend before Wakeboard World Cup in Palembang

It was the last weekend to be able to ride before the World Cup. We had a few riders still brave enough to hit the cold water in Cavan on Saturday! David Coates was just back from Spain, Carro Djupso joined us all the way from Sweden en route to the World Cup. Ashley Murray came down from Northern Ireland and of course Sian and myself from Dublin. It was so cold that the first few feet of my rope was frozen solid – more like a bar than a rope!

Then yesterday we had the AGM of our Irish Wakeboard Federation where all kinds of issues get discussed and clubs book comps for next year.

On Wednesday Sian and I fly out to Palembang in Indonesia. It’s a long long journey….. We fly Dublin to Dubai, then to Singapore and finally on to Palembang in South Sumatra. It’s 33 degrees there at the moment so that will be a nice change. Can’t wait for the last competition of the year and to see all the other riders again as everyone has been training in different countries – from Thailand to the USA.. Details

Comments Off on EA Wakeboard Championships, Kiev – Day 1

Hi everyone,
So stoked to let you know all the Open Men on the Irish Team qualified through to Semi Finals today! Not bad for a small cold and wet island! Paul Johnston, David Coates and I all got through qualifying rounds today to make Semis on Friday. We’re all so happy. Tomorrow the girls are riding, Aisling, Lindsay and Sian, as well as Jonny Crawford in Masters so good luck to them!

Hi guys,

Last weekend to finish our little tour we went to Riverfest in Coleraine which was such a cool event and there were thousands of people on the riverside over the weekend. There was lots of entertainment for kids, jet ski demos, strong man and strong woman national championships and loads of other stuff.
