Humanoid Wakeboards did a little “Day in the Life” edit of Bob Sichel last week that my buddy Nick Dorsey and I made an appearance in! Fun times at The Wakeboard Camp! Ended up being featured on Transworld Wakeboarding. See the full article and video here. Enjoy!

2013 is set up to be the best year of wakeboarding that I’ve ever experienced. The weather is awesome for this time of year, my body isn’t too broken yet, Natique’s G23 exists, and I’ve got a great crew to ride with this season out here in FL. Here’s a few of my recent instagram shots of 2013!
The first official BoardCo clinic went down in AZ last week. Overall a success! I got to experience most of the local wakeboard scene in AZ in one week. I had a great time and the riders that attended my clinic learned a ton! One of my students, BoardCo.com team rider Ahren Benziger, took first place at the AWA competition on Saturday. Nice work!
Here’s some of the media from the trip. Check it out. Enjoy!
And here is my first ever Late Heelside Back Roll to Blind with some friends after the clinic! Stoked! Thanks for the motivaton fellas! The audio /video quality is low, beware.
I’ll be out at Red Rock Wake Park in St. George, UT for a few unique cable clinics this summer. RRWP are pioneers in cable for the western frontier. You’ve gotta come and see what we’re up to. We’ve got it set up right. Come check it out!
Last week I had an adventure that I’ve been asked about a lot since, so I figured I’d post the details. First off, I had surgery last Thursday. I had a torn meniscus and had to get my knee scoped. Everything went great and I’m on the mend. Only three more weeks until I can ride again! Less than 48 hours after surgery, my wife and I decided to drive to the Miami area to meet up with some friends for the day. A few of my best friends were on a Caribbean cruise the week before. One was the Best Man at my wedding and the other was a Groomsmen and his wife whom I hadn’t met yet (they live in Canada). So, these weren’t just any old friends – definitely worth the nearly four hour drive from the Clermont.
As soon as we left the Orlando area we saw two dudes chillin’ on the side of the freeway holding a sign that said, “Miami”. My wife and I looked at each other and knew that we were both on board to pick them up. We turned around and picked up our stow-aways for the trip. As it turns out, these guys had an awesome story:
These guys had been hitchhiking for over 8 months! They were college students from the University of Oregon (one had graduated) that just got sick of the grind and decided to head out on an adventure. They made their money by playing music on the street corner for change. Their goal was to get to the Keys and save up enough money there to either get to Europe and continue the adventure there or to save up enough to skip Mexico and head into Central and South America. They were both only 25 and 26 yrs old and had great personalities and more stories than you can shake a stick at. It made our four hour drive very entertaining.
After we arrived, we parted ways with our nomadic travelers and met up with our friends in Ft. Lauderdale. We took them to the cable park at Rixen and taught them to ride cable for their first time ever. Both of the guys that rode landed tantrums off of a kicker within their first hour or so at the cable park! They were quick learners and I had a blast coaching them.
In summary, one of the most fun weekends that I’ve had in a long time! Thanks to all who made it possible! I wonder how our traveling nomads are doing? Hopefully they’re in the Keys by now! Good luck fellas!
I love my job. It’s days like today that make it all worth it. It’s mid November and we are still riding in board shorts. No wind, no wetsuit, perfect glass. It doesn’t get much better than this. Clayton and I rode a quick demo set for some campers at The Wakeboard Camp and then I coached them for a few sets. Everyone landed something new before I dropped them off at the beach for dinner. I took this shot with my phone right before I pulled the boat out of the water. The only ripples on the lake were from me stepping into the water.
The last few days have been fantastic like this. Tomorrow I’m off to the cable park to film for LearnWake.com. Hopefully the wakeboard gods will continue to smile upon us!
