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 – 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.

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,

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

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!
