Comments Off on Top 10 best Wakeboarding moments – David OC

This week, as we’re still in Lockdown, I decided it might be an idea to take a trip down memory lane and highlight my top 10 wakeboarding moments in the past 5 years. It’s been insane, loads of travelling, competing and messing around on the board. Hopefully you enjoy it and thanks for watching. Also if you haven’t yet voted in the Readers’ Poll, and if you’ve learnt from my videos, or enjoyed them it would be amazing if you could vote under Male Boat Wakeboarder or Content Creator.

Comments Off on Wakeboarding – boosting from the FunBox

I went into WakeDock for a last minute ride. The weather was insane, especially for September, and so I just sessioned the park. I turned up the speed and tried gapping the big FunBox. I honestly didn’t think going that bit faster would make the gap so easy, but it actually wasn’t too bad, though a little scary. I think so much is possible on it if I get comfortable with the speed. Thanks so much to the guys at WakeDock in Dublin for having me in and I hope you enjoy the little short wakeboarding video – which is fully filmed on my GoPro Hero 8. David Details

Comments Off on First Track Day – Mondello Park

As many of you may know, alongside wakeboarding, I have a huge passion for cars. Anytime I spend around cars is either modifying my own, or reviewing ordinary day to day cars. My friend, Tim, has a little track car (LoCost) which is a homemade kit car. He invited me out on the track for the day which was insane. Here’s a little vlog style video I made. I hope you enjoy this different type of video. David Details

Wakeboarding is fun!

I decided to try and ride my cable board on the boat. Bearing in mind it’s not a massive Centurion but a 16 foot RIB with a 45 foot rope at 18mph. I was trying my best to ride the same way John Dreiling did in his mini wake sessions video . Safe to say I was nowhere near as stylish but it was good fun all the same. Have fun on your wakeboards!

Comments Off on Small wake – what is possible behind a 16ft Rib?

So as you may know, I love to test the ability of small wakes and what’s possible. ** link to riding jacket ** Of course I’d love to be out on a Centurion Ri237, however, right now I can’t travel so this 16 foot rib is the best I can do! It’s got a 2 stroke 130HP Yamaha engine out the back and other than having very low torque in the early revs, it’s got plenty of power. Managed to get a few high end tricks in and I reckon with a little more practice I’d get even more done! Thanks so much for watching, and remember, wakeboarding and water sports are all about having fun on the water no matter how good or bad your equipment is! Thanks for watching. David Details
