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!!

Comments Off on Riverfest 2013 – Coleraine, Northern Ireland

What an awesome weekend at Riverfest in Coleraine in Northern Ireland. The weather held up and riding conditions were good. Unfortunately, in terms of the competition, I didn’t do enough to take out my fellow World Cup rider Sam Carne so big congrats to him! Thanks too to Rob Skelly for organising such a sick event. The flyboarding was a great addition to Riverfest and the crowds, as always, thronged the water’s edge. 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

Comments Off on Chill and Ride Germany – August 2012

Hi Guys,

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

Comments Off on 3rd at Wake Games, Orlando

Hey everyone,

Just got back from the Wake Games in Orlando where I managed to make the podium and take 3rd place in Junior Pro Men. I’m so happy as I was very nervous riding with all those big names. I was even more stoked to have landed a toe back 7 and a heel back 7, back to back in semis.
