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.

POV Cable Wakeboarding

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 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!

A few days down at Ballyhass always equates to a silly video – crazy wakeboarding dock starts! Honestly though, we had such a blast. Apologies the vlog is a bit chaotic, but hopefully you will still enjoy it!

Comments Off on New obstacle at the Wake Park

So, Ballyhass Wake park has kicked 2018 off with a brand new transfer box rail thingy. I must say, it’s user friendly and good for learning harder rail hits on the wakeboard. But can also be challenging for professionals. Hope you enjoy the rail session video. Thanks, David
