Comments Off on Wakeboarding at OWC, Orlando, Florida

A wakeboarder can’t visit Florida without going to Orlando Watersports complex for a session. OWC is one of the most historical and important cable parks there has ever been. On any given day, there are tons of pro wakeboarders hanging out there. A big part of the reason for that is because Orlando is a hub for pro wakeboarding, but also because the park is pretty good too. In this video I go for a ride, get some GoPro and slo-mo shots going off the kickers. Hopefully you enjoy the video and thanks for watching. David Details

Comments Off on The Flip DockStart – The most difficult trick in wakeboarding

The front flip dock start on the wakeboard has always been challenging for me!!! I bumped into a guy at the cable here who has only been riding for three months and could do it, so naturally I had to crack into it and give them a go! I hope you enjoy the video. David Details

Comments Off on Wakeboarding Trick Names Explained – Raley, Whirlybird, Tantrum & Scarecrow

Hopefully his video helps you to understand the tricks. Thanks for watching. David Details

Comments Off on Wakeboarding – Learning to Tantrum, mistakes everyone makes!

The Tantrum is one of the most basic and popular flips/inverts to learn in wakeboarding. It’s essentially a heel side backflip. There are some very common mistakes people make both on the boat and the cable. Details

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 Details

Comments Off on How to Fashion Air Wakeboarding

So, in this tutorial I am 100% joking. But the point is you can’t take wakeboarding too seriously and you’ve always gotta have fun when you’re out riding. Thanks to JB for filming. Thanks to you all for watching. David Details

Comments Off on Craziest System 2 Park in the World!

This Plaza is one of the most incredible System 2.0 parks in the world. It’s the equivalent of a 10 step skate park which is fairly massive to say the least! Hope you enjoy the GoPro and Drone footage from the Mavic. Thanks for watching. David Details

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

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
