1st in Boys division riding my new Ctrl Supreme board, such a sick board with stiff core and flex zones, at the third leg of the Liquid Leisure Wakeparks obstacles only winter series. Another good turnout with Over 35 riders turning up to compete in March in the timed Jam format where each rider got 8 mins to score as many points as possible on the Unit obstacles. The series has one more stop to go until the overall series champion will be announced for each division in April, and a share of £500 prize money.
Here’s a quick summary of my 2013 competition season. It all kicked off with a trip to Hipnotics cable park in April for some early season training and to put together a new riding video for my sponsors. Then throughout the year I entered various Boat and Cable competitions with some great Podium places managing to take the Boat National Titles in Boys for both Wakeboard and Wakeskate at Quayside Wake, and later on in the year a 2nd place in Boys at the Cable Nationals held at Liquid Leisure Wakepark.
I was also selected to be part of the Boat & Cable GB Squad as well as selected into the British Water Ski & Wakeboard Talent Development Programme.
The other highlights for me were representing GB and taking the Bronze medal out in Sweden at the Cable Europeans in Boys in such a competitive division and competing in the knockout RedBull Harbour Reach qualification comp taking 3rd place in Open men held at JustWake sytem 2 Wakepark!
My last competition of the year was held in December at Liquid Leisure Wakepark in their Winter obstacles only series comp, taking 1st in the Boys, with two more stops to go early next year to decide overall division series champions and a share in the £500 prize money.
BIG thanks to all my sponsors in 2013, without your help this all would not have been possible, FOX, CTRL Wakeboards, WMski Wakepark, LDB Wakeschool, BWS&W Talent Development Programme/Funding, with finishing off the year currently ranked overall 1st in the UK & 3rd in the World in Boys for cable wakeboard by the IWWF/CWWC official overall rankings.
Looking forward to 2014!
