How to 911 on a Wakeboard

The 911 on a wakeboard is a very impressive trick, much like the Raley (which looks like a Superman). it’s incredibly scary, but actually it’s not too difficult. I hope you enjoy the video and learn from it too. Thanks for watching. David More

Comments Off on Disabled Wakeboarding – learning how!

So, I hit up Melbourne Wakepark with the crew and found out they are the only/the first disabled friends cable park in the world. They have all the gear there so anyone can learn how to ride, no matter what! Massive thank you to Robbie for teaching me how to do it and also for launching over me! Not scary at all! Hope you enjoy and many more Australia vlogs to come 🙂

Comments Off on 180 Challenge – Wakeboarding

So I thought since I’m wakeboarding in Australia again (Bundalong, on the Murray River) it’s time to start challenging myself. How many variations are there of 180s?

Enjoy!

Comments Off on Wakeboarding behind my Friend’s Car

This edit was a test for a future video. The plan is to wakeboard behind a Supercar of some sort but for now the Land Rover was more than enough. I’m actually really surprised how well it went and huge thanks to Tim for helping me get this done.

The Irish crew and I travelled to Turkey (Hip-Notics) to ride and have a fun time. This video is a bit all over the place between normal camera footage, drone shots and GoPro but I hope you like it. Thanks.

Comments Off on Learning to Flip Transfer on a Wakeboard

9 degree water and a 6 hour drive in total…. but it was 100% worth it to ride Ballyhass Wake Park’s new setup and try the flip transfer. Damn I love it. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching.

Comments Off on Flipping behind an 8ft. Rib – Fail!

So we got some of Ireland’s best cable riders and gave them a go at boat riding. It was really interesting seeing the differences in their approach and everything. Then for some bonus footage, I managed to try do a flip behind an 8ft rib which was insane. Hope you enjoy. David

Wayyy harder than it looks. Aaron Cutler has earned a lot of respect in the industry, but after giving it a go myself, I personally have a new found respect for him!
