Chill & Ride, Podium

I sorta just won Chill and Ride powered by NISSAN. 😄😄.
A storm blew up mid finals, so they called off the contest as it was too dangerous to ride. So they took the results from the previous round and split the prize money amongst all the finalists. That’s why I said ‘sorta won!! Haha.
Still an insane weekend out here in Germany! Also congrats to my Irish buddies Sian Hurst on her first place and to Aisling Deegan Wakeboarder for making the podium in her first ever pro contest!

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!!

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

Heading off to take the ferry to Wakestock today and it looks like the weather will be brilliant. Sunshine instead of rain! Should be a fun comp.

Comments Off on 2013 Irish Wakeboard Nationals

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 Wakeboard World Cup Results – Mandurah 2013


Hi everyone,

It’s been a brilliant weekend out here in Mandurah in Western Australia at the Wakeboard World Cup. Three of us from Ireland were selected to compete, Sian Hurst, DC (David Coates) and myself. Unfortunately, none of us managed to make it through the heats but we still had a sick time out here in 30 degree heat and we celebrated Paddy’s day in the sunshine. 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 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

Wakeboarding in Ireland

Well it has been a quiet month competition wise but that gave me a chance to ride with some friends at the lake and have a couple of the Monster crew up one weekend. I started university too and had my Debs (Prom) night so it has been busy in general. I’m heading off to Xtreme Gene later this month so I can’t wait for that and then Sian Hurst and I have been invited to the next World Cup stop in Palembang in Indonesia in November which should be brilliant too.

Cheers,

David
