Comments Off on Wakeboard World Championships, Busan, Korea

Having a brilliant time out here in Busan, Korea at the Wakeboard World Championships. There are over 200 athletes from 30 countries and the level of riding just gets higher each year.

The Koreans are looking after us very well and so far we have had 5 of our 7 Irish Team Riders advance to the next round. I was stoked to qualify first in my heat and big congrats also to Paul Johnston, David Coates, Lindsay Whelan and Aisling Deegan…. Details

Unfortunately, in terms of the competition, I didn’t do enough to take out my fellow World Cup rider Sam Carne so big congrats to him! Thanks too to Rob Skelly for organising such a sick event. The flyboarding was a great addition to Riverfest and the crowds, as always, thronged the water’s edge. Details

Cuffed Toe Back 9

So stoked to land a Cuffed Toe Back 9!!!! I’m pretty sure I’m the first person to ever stick this. It’s a trick I’ve been working on for about a year now and I tried it a lot in Florida. I’m so happy to have landed it last week on my own lake in Cavan on a ‘European Wake’. Here’s a short teaser and full video to follow shortly.
