Comments Off on Wakeboard training & coaching at Xtreme Gene, Spain

Another amazing sunset at Xtreme Gene

Having a blast out here at Xtreme Gene in Spain both training and coaching. Pro Riders, David Coates from Ireland, and Carro Djupsjo from Sweden, are really killing it! Carro landed her first Tantrum to Blind. Unfortunately, the next day she tried a late roll to blind and took a whopper back edge and is still recovering! There are about 40 people out here from Ireland at the moment – riders and skiers so it’s a lot of fun too and the weather is amazing! Only another few days of sunshine and warm water training here!

Comments Off on Wakeboarding Photo Shoot in Spain

What a week! Six solid days of photo shoots!  Perfect weather here and the light has been awesome. Big thanks to Luke Lee who got some amazing shots. Here’s a little taster of what’s to come!

Comments Off on Filming at the Wakeboard Cables in Ireland

Cable & Wake Belfast

It’s been a busy two weeks. I got to ride with some friends in Belfast and on Lough Sillan. Then I went back to Cable & Wake in Belfast to do some filming for a Sky TV programme on the Titanic Quarter, followed by another filming session a couple of days later at Wakedock in Dublin…… Finally I flew out here to Xtreme Gene near Cordoba in Spain for some warm weather training. I’ll be here for almost three weeks so I’m stoked about that – best place in Europe to ride!!! Check them out at Details
