Comments Off on Another win …. at Chill & Ride, Germany

Hi Guys,

Just back from Germany where Sian Hurst (Irish Team rider) and I went to enter in a contest called Chill and Ride. It was a very different and unique contest. Instead of sitting on the shore waiting whilst others ride you sit on your ‘own’ boat and ‘Chill’ all day and then when you ride, it is on your own boat which is pretty sick because you are used to the wake.

There were about 30 wakeboard boats and about 8,000 people at the evewnt which was pretty sick. It’s sort of what I can imagine Brostock would be like. There were two events. First was a Team Challenge and Sian and I were on the German MasterCraft team and we managed to win the challenge. Then there was a wakesurfing comp and an amateur wakeboarding comp and then finally a Pro contest and Sian and I both took first place which was brilliant. Details

Comments Off on My first 900 – at Mid Air
Hi guys,
Just a quick update on the weekend.
We all headed up to Northern Ireland for the Mid Air contest. It was a lot of fun withabout 32 riders. Everybody there was really interested and involved which made it great fun and created a great atmosphere. They ran it on the same format as Big Air – the best two out of three runs which means everyone gets to ride lots and you can try new stuff without worrying about getting through!
The riding was good but a lot of the top riders are still away or injured – like David Coates who was in Spain and Paul Johnston who dislocated his shoulder. I managed to get 1st place with Pete Stewart in 2nd.
What I really stoked about though was that I landed my first ever 900 on the Sunday which I was delighted with!!!
