Just returned from having a sick time at the Worlds in Norway held at Norsjo Wakepark, winning my heat I went straight through to the Boys Finals along with my other two team mates.
The finals where made up of eight riders of various Nationalities with two runs each, I fell on my second harder run but my first was good enough for Third place taking the Bronze medal riding my Ctrl Supreme board. Congrats to my team mate Liam for taking the Silver and Joey for 4th. Team GB also ended up with the Silver medal.
Just returned from a trip to Hipnotics Wakepark in Turkey, if you’ve never been check out the link such a sick place, big thanks to Hipnotics cable and the friends I rode with both from home and abroad, loving my Ctrl Supreme board, one of the best boards ive ever ridden on both the sliders and air tricks, also thanks to Ctrl Europe & Fox Europe for sorting out all my new 2014 gear before my trip, few pics below:
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!

What Ctrl Say:
We are the first exclusively designed cable park board company on the planet. We dream it, we test it, we break it, we fix it. We are creators and innovators. We are CTRL wakeboards, built to a higher standard.
Don’t be fooled by the Standard, it really is just that, a new industry standard. Built from the ground up to give you everything you need as you get going. Right from the start CTRL built this board to a higher standard. From their bomber rail design, reinforced base, and their ERC Core 1 construction, the standard is built to take the abuse thrown its way. With a moderate fast continuous rocker and fins that are not only the proper shape, length and style of in you need on an entry level board; it’s pretty much bullet proof as well. All the features, function and performance you can expect at CTRL are here on their Standard board aswell.
