Comments Off on Wakeboard World Championships Korea 2013

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.

Comments Off on Wakeboard World Championships, Busan, Korea


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

Hey guys,

 Just home from an amazing weekend at Chill and Ride in Germany. As usual, the event took place on the Rhine on the border between Germany and France, which is a really cool spot! Details
Comments Off on Opening Ceremony, World Games, Cali

Hi everyone,
Colombia is AMAZING!! After a very long flight and an overnight in a different hotel I finally got to Los Andes, outside Cali, yesterday. The Wakeboarding and Water skiing are being held at this golf resort. Last night we attended the Opening Ceremony and I’ve never seen anything like it, even the video below doesn’t capture the atmosphere. It really was the most unforgettable experience with dance, gymnastics and a fantastic fireworks display. There were 35,000 people inside the stadium and another 40,000 outside watching on large screens and apparently there were about 1 million people on the streets!! Today we had our practice run on the Nautique G23. I had some problems with my rope length but hopefully all will be OK tomorrow for qualifying.
Thanks,
David

Hey everyone,
I’m just back from an awesome weekend in Cork where the 2013 Irish Wakeboard Nationals took place. It was a bit of a different event for most of us as there was Wakeboarding, Wakeskating and Wakesurfing which worked out really welll! Details

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.

Just back from a photo shoot down in the south of Ireland with Luke Lee Photography. A couple of us went down to do a special ‘Night Shoot’. It was a brilliant few days but my eyes are still recovering from the blinding flashes! Big thanks to Luke for the photos. Details
