INTERVIEW

Where do you live now? 

I live in Discovery Bay on the California Delta.

First job? 

Wakeboarding.

What are you looking forward to this summer?

I’m looking forward to just riding in my hometown this summer with all my friends on the Delta.  We’ve got a good crew of riders out there like Trever Maur. Derek Cook, Chris Dykmans,  Grant Roberts, and my older brother Jeremy.

Who do you look up to in wakeboarding?

Ever since I was a kid I’ve looked up to Ben Greenwood.  I would always watch his sections in videos over and over and that’s where I’ve  gotten a lot of influence on my riding.  Plus Ben is a cool guy.

Best place on earth? 

80ft behind the Super Air Nautique G23.

Worst place on earth? 

Middle seat of any airplane on a cross country flight.  Not sure if that’s technically on earth?

Who do you ride with?

Delta Force!

Do you have any wakeboarding superstitions or habits? 

My first trick is always a Method.  My set isn’t the same if its not. 

What trick is the most fun for you? 

I like to work on making the tricks that I have unique and different than they would normally look.  That’s what makes wakeboarding fun for me.

Where is your favorite place to ride?

In all the years I have been riding I haven’t found a place that I like to ride more than in my backyard on the California Delta.  It’s just got a different vibe than anywhere else I’ve ridden

Are you competing in any contests this coming season?

One or two.  Actually, as I am typing this, I’m on my way to the first of five tournament weekends in a row.  I plan on doing all of the King of Wake events plus a few others.

Sponsors?
