Comments Off on Palembang – Wakeboard World Cup Results

Unfortunately I didn’t make it out of Semis but big congratulations to Harley Clifford (AUS), Tony Iacconi (AUS) and Andrew Adkison (USA) on coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the World Cup here in Indonesia and to Massi Piffaretti from Italy on taking 4th. The Final was awesome and everybody killed it! In the Women’s Finals Raimi Merritt (USA) took the Gold followed by Amber Wing (AUS) with Silver and Nicola Butler (UK) took the Bronze. Also, well done to Carro Djupso from Sweden who got back up on the water following an injury to make sure she got through to Finals! Details

Wakestock

Hi everyone,

As always, Wakestock was such a sick event with a brilliant atmosphere and about 20,000 people there. The first couple of days it was lashing rain and they had flood warnings all over Wales and we were lucky to get the car moving in the muck. Sian Hurst rode really well on Friday but unfortunately didn’t make Finals. Then the sun shone on Saturday for the Pro Men Semi Finals and Finals. I was delighted to qualify first in the semi finals despite snapping my board two thirds of the way through! In Finals I fell on a Tootsie roll and my run went dowhill from there but I ended up coming fifth which has now motivated me to really go for it for the rest of the season. Big congrats to the three Dans! Dan Nott who took 1st place which is brilliant as for the past few years it has been foreign riders that have taken the top spot. The second and third spots went to Orlando riders Danny Thollander and Daniel Powers. Well done to all. It was Amber Wing who won the Ladies’ Pro Finals.

Yesterday we all headed to Glasfryn Wake Park to hit the Sesitec and had a blast hitting the obstacles there. Just got back to Dublin now and I head back out to Xtreme Gene at 7am tomorrow where I can’t wait to get some serious water time in. Details

Comments Off on 5th at Wakeboard World Cup – Australia

Hi Guys,

The last few days I have been in Mandurah in Western Australia competing in the Wakeboard World Cup. They selected 20 of the top male and ten of the top female riders in the world.

Personally, I was just delighted to be invited to the event. There were loads of spectators on the banks when we kicked off at 8 o’clock on St. Patrick’s day. The water was quite choppy for Qualifying rounds but I managed to ride well and I was just over the moon to get through to semis.
