Comments Off on One Handed Wakeboarding Challenge

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!

Comments Off on How I Prepare For a Competition – Wakeboarding

So, with little to no wakeboarding training in the weeks coming up to my first comp of the season (the European Pro Wakeboard tour), I decided to head out to SideWake for a few days to prep. Consistency in the game when it comes to comps and so I decided to work on that rather that bigger tricks. I hope you enjoy the video. David
