Comments Off on Chill and Ride Germany – August 2012

Hi Guys,

I just arrived in Ukraine for the European Championships after spending five days in Germany at one of the sickest comps in Europe: Chill and Ride.

As you can imagine, we did lots of riding, and even more chilling!! On the Friday, we watched the Wakesurfing which was pretty cool as they all were killing it!!  Then on Saturday, after a massive party on the Friday night, the Team Challenge took place. This involves a group of people going on the one boat and riding against another boat. Fortunately our team came second which we were all so pumped about!!! YEEEEEEEE

Then on the Sunday we all got down to business. The qualifying, semis and finals were all on the one day and this meant a lot of riding for those who were to get to the finals. Unfortunately, my Irish Team mates David Coates and Paul Johnston both just missed finals which was a bummer as they could both have killed it. In the end it was Dylan Mitchell (RSA), Nikita Martianov( Rus), Sam Carne (UK), Lucas Langlois and Yann Calvez (FRA) and myself competing in Finals. The standard was mental as we were towed behind a new X Star (huge wake) and a Mastercraft X55, which also kicks up a ridiculously big wake! Details

Comments Off on Wakeboarding at Xtreme Gene

Hi everyone,

I am out here in one of the best locations in the world for riding: Xtreme-Gene, near Cordoba in Spain. Since I got here 4 days ago it has been nothing but sun (40 degrees) and flat calm water. Yeah that’s “mucho mucho” hot for a fair skinned Irish kid!!!

When I first arrived there was a good array of riders including Dylan Mitchell from South Africa and Lucas Langlois from France, not to mention the two coaches Carro Djupso, from Sweden, and fellow Irish team rider David Coates (DC).So, as you can imagine with these riders, and the huge wake, the level of riding has been unreal and only getting better!!!
