Comments Off on Wakeboard Slalom – How Fast Can I Run The Course?

As some of you may know, I’ve been slalom skiing a lot lately and really enjoying it.

Naturally my brain began to think – can I run the slalom course on a wakeboard, and if I can, how quickly can I do it? Plus, can I add a few flips in there too?

I think if my board had a little more rocker, I could probably go quicker.

All in all, a great challenge and experiment, and maybe a whole new sport?

Thanks so much for watching.


Comments Off on How many flips are possible in 1 minute – Wakeboard challenge!

Today I set out to break the Guinness Book of World Record for the most wakeboarding flips in under one minute! It’s not an easy task as you need the perfect conditions, an averagely small wake (not too small though) and a serious amount of stamina! I shortened my rope to 55ft, Tim put the throttle down and I gave it a go. Unfortunately I came up short and failed on the first attempt, so I took 10 minutes to catch my breath and went again!! I hope you enjoy this video, and thanks so much for watching. David

Comments Off on Wakeboarding – the difference between Cable and Boat boards

Can you use your cable board behind the boat? Actually I wasΒ pleasantly surprised by how good it was and honestly, I really enjoyed the playfulness of it on the water. I think with fins it could be epic!!

Sunday was amazing!! Absolutely buzzing! We raised €650 on the day and another €90 later for Scott and we had nothing but great vibes and new tricks all day! I can’t thank everyone enough for coming in and supporting!! Most of all though I have to thank the legend himself, Scott Keegan, for making the trip in to see the action. I know it was a big deal for him to get out of the hospital and join us! So THANK YOU!!
Also, A huge thank you to Wakedock for their support and of course Gar Kavanagh for helping me get the whole event going!!! So buzzing!! Details

Comments Off on Stoked to take 1st at Irish Cable Nationals

Very, very, very happy to take the win at the Irish Cable Nationals. Riding cable contests is always a challenge, and with Robin Coates and John Tully riding so well it made it very tough! Great start to the season 😊😊😊.
Also, I must say, I’m delighted and proud to have seen so many unreal kids wakeboarding so, so well. Ireland has a bright future in Wakeboarding!
Thanks to Ballyhass Lakes for putting on a seriously epic event! Details

Comments Off on Wakeboarding behind a ski boat!

I always want to try new things and I often hear people complaining about their wake, saying it’s not big enough. I love a big wake myself, but unfortunately I don’t have access to a massive wake all the time, so I’m used to riding old wakeboard boats with medium sized wakes.

So I thought I’d try to ride behind a ski boat and find out what’s possible. I must say, I’m shocked at what’s possible!!!! Crazy!!!

Thanks for watching! πŸ™‚
