Comments Off on Coaching my subscribers – Wakeboarding

As I’m still at home in Ireland and we have entered another even stricter lockdown, I decided it would be a cool idea to ask you guys (my subscribers) to submit videos of your attempts at tricks where you have difficulty, and then analyse them and give you some tips. In this video I basically give some tips/tutorials for 360s, rails, front rolls, tantrums and landing blind. Hopefully the tips help you see the most common reasons for crashing on a wakeboard. Feel free to send more videos my way on instagram (davidoc). Thanks so much for watching. Merch – https://bay6ix.com/collections/lads-a… More

Comments Off on Learning to Foil – easier than expected!

The guys at Wakedock, in Dublin, messaged me and invited me to learn how to Foil. I’ve always wanted to learn it but have never really had the opportunity before. I have to say it was very enjoyable! It’s such a smooth sensation! Huge thanks to the guys for teaching me, I can’t wait to try again. I hope you enjoy the edit. Thanks, David More

Comments Off on My Number 1 Tip for Wakeboarding!

The biggest and most important thing when it comes to wakeboarding progress is……. THE BASICS. It’s the most overlooked thing, particularly when someone never gets any coaching. Naturally we want to learn cool flips, inverts and spins, however, you can never spend enough time working on the basics, never!! Darren was guilty of skipping the basics and he openly admits he learnt this lesson the hard way! So remember, number one wakeboarding tip, walk before you run! ` Thanks for watching. David More

Comments Off on Top 10 best Wakeboarding moments – David OC

Comments Off on Wakeboarding – boosting from the FunBox

I went into WakeDock for a last minute ride. The weather was insane, especially for September, and so I just sessioned the park. I turned up the speed and tried gapping the big FunBox. I honestly didn’t think going that bit faster would make the gap so easy, but it actually wasn’t too bad, though a little scary. I think so much is possible on it if I get comfortable with the speed. Thanks so much to the guys at WakeDock in Dublin for having me in and I hope you enjoy the little short wakeboarding video – which is fully filmed on my GoPro Hero 8. David More

Comments Off on First Track Day – Mondello Park

As many of you may know, alongside wakeboarding, I have a huge passion for cars. Anytime I spend around cars is either modifying my own, or reviewing ordinary day to day cars. My friend, Tim, has a little track car (LoCost) which is a homemade kit car. He invited me out on the track for the day which was insane. Here’s a little vlog style video I made. I hope you enjoy this different type of video. David More

Wakeboarding is fun!

I decided to try and ride my cable board on the boat. Bearing in mind it’s not a massive Centurion but a 16 foot RIB with a 45 foot rope at 18mph. I was trying my best to ride the same way John Dreiling did in his mini wake sessions video https://cutt.ly/Xfni11Z . Safe to say I was nowhere near as stylish but it was good fun all the same. Have fun on your wakeboards! David More

Comments Off on Small wake – what is possible behind a 16ft Rib?

So as you may know, I love to test the ability of small wakes and what’s possible. ** link to riding jacket https://bay6ix.com ** Of course I’d love to be out on a Centurion Ri237, however, right now I can’t travel so this 16 foot rib is the best I can do! It’s got a 2 stroke 130HP Yamaha engine out the back and other than having very low torque in the early revs, it’s got plenty of power. Managed to get a few high end tricks in and I reckon with a little more practice I’d get even more done! Thanks so much for watching, and remember, wakeboarding and water sports are all about having fun on the water no matter how good or bad your equipment is! Thanks for watching. David More

Wakeboarding fun!

So we have a great week ahead of us with a little 5.7 metre rib. My friend has had this lying around his garden for the past 3 years and so we decided to fit a little pylon and go wakeboarding behind it. It’s not a massive wake but it’s great fun. I hope you enjoy the video. David More

How to Raley on a Wakeboard

When it comes to doing ‘Raleys’ (superman on a wakeboard), there are many ways. Behind a boat, off a kicker and even the air raley. I originally learnt it off a kicker (despite being more of a boat rider at the time) as it’s just a whole lot easier and less dangerous. Hopefully this tutorial will help you try it. Thanks for watching. David More

Comments Off on A 95kg man landed on top of me – Wakeboarding!

So DC Wake and I were just riding around the cable trying to do a bit of filming. It was all going very well and we were getting some awesome GoPro footage when all of a sudden I messed up my line and didn’t get out of his way. Next thing I knew he did a whirlybird right on top of me! Safe to say my arm is still paying the price. Hope you enjoy the video and plenty more to come soon. David More

Comments Off on Learning to barefoot Waterski

I decided it was time to try a new water sport, and what sport could be better than waterskiing on my bare feet. It was honestly so much more enjoyable and easy than I had expected, but also a lot more painful! Big thanks to my friend Robin for teaching me! Hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching.

Comments Off on Wakeboarding Tantrums – Top Tips!

Game of Wake!

My good friend, DCWake, and I decided it would be fun to have a quick game of Wake. Basically one person tries a trick, the other copies it and you get a letter if the person copying it falls/crashes. After about 10 tricks we completely lost count and just decided to have fun and match each others tricks. Hopefully you will enjoy watching. Thanks, David More

Can I Slalom Ski?

So a couple of my friends go water skiing once a week just outside Dublin and invited me to join them. I decided I’d give it a go and see if I was able to run the slalom course on a mono-ski. I actually surprised myself on this one, maybe I’ll keep at it and try compete next year hahah. I hope you enjoy. David IASC – http://www.wakeboardingwaterskiing.co…

Comments Off on Wakeboarding Ireland – kicker session

Music: https://spoti.fi/2ZG4fpl I’ve been trying to go up from Dublin to Belfast a couple times per week to ride the full size cable wakeboard system there. Darren and I had a little kicker session, he was trying Crow Mobes and I was trying switch heel side 1080s (pre-spinning hah). I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching. David

Comments Off on Wakeboarding on a toilet seat!

I decided to test the boundaries of my brand new toilet seat! haha. I know it’s fit for the purpose intended but I wanted to try wakeboarding on it and to see is if was possible to wakeboard on a toilet seat! Thanks to Darren for filming, Podge for driving and the crew at WakeDock in Grand Canal Dock (Dublin) for having me in. The aim of this video is to put a smile on your face, hope it works! David

Comments Off on Homemade Wakeboard Rail

So this week I went back down to Ballyhass Lakes in Cork to wakeboard and tried the brand new rail (named the Jon-Ten). It’s an absolute beauty that was built in just 3 short days. Super fun session on it. I hope you enjoy watching. David

Comments Off on Win a free live video Wakeboard coaching session

WakeDock in Dublin has opened back up and so I have been riding there a lot lately! It’s great to be able to ride in the heart of Dublin again. Challenge: guess the tricks towards the end of the video and if you guess correctly I’ll pick one of you to win a live coaching video call with me. Either boat or park. The tricks are filmed on a GoPro hero 8 so the POV chest mount might make them tricky to figure out! Hope you enjoy and good luck!

Comments Off on Mastering the Basics – cable wakeboarding

I made this video to show you the 4 fundamental tricks you need to master in order to hit an obstacle. I hope they help. See you in the next video. David More

TBT Wakestock, 2011

I just got tagged in this #TBT from 2011 when I won my first professional contest. It was WakeStock, which was probably my favourite ever event to date and as you can see the rails were pretty sketchy 😂

Comments Off on Wakeboarding in a Socially Distant World!

Finally, after many months, I got the opportunity to wakeboard again! As you can imagine it felt AMAZING! I hope you’re all keeping well during quarantine and staying healthy. It’s definitely a great individual sport to try as team sports aren’t back yet. A huge thank you to Ballyhass adventure centre/ WakePark for having me down. David
