High Performance Coaching Camp

I have spent the week with Jacob Horre and Lauren Bell who won the Aussie Junior Titles and Parker Siegle who was runner up to me at Nationals.  We are doing a High Performance Coaching Program that was funded by the Australian Waterski & Wakeboard Federation to develop an Australian Team.  We spend mornings on the water in the ProWake Academy Tige of John Henson and afternoons at Chek Australia. Chek train some of the best athletes in Australia - mind - body - exercise - mental preparation - nutrition - stretching - muscle recovery etc...  They trained Stephanie Gilmore and Mick Fanning in preparation for the World Championships and have an amazing record.  We have also done some media training too which has been awesome.
And I got a Crow 5 consistent along with a Toe Side Back 360 with a solid grab.  The camp was brilliant.
Off to Cairns next week for the Australian Cable Wakeboard Nationals - it's going to be fun!

So much happening

Smashed up my hand at Cable and need some time off the water.  Working this week at the ProWake Clearance Sale for Jet Pilot, Liquid Force and O'Brien.   It will be huge.
Have the AWWF High Performance Coaching Program next week, then back to Cable getting ready for Cable Nationals in Cairns.
Then I am hitting the road with Rubber Johnny and Mick Watkins for a couple of weeks for a North Queensland Tour.    Life is good!

Loving Somerset Dam

Spent a great week with Chris Flaxman filming his latest project.  Had some cable sessions at Logan and Bli Bli and some boat sessions on the Coomera River, Brisbane River and 5 days at Somerset.
The weekend was a celebration for QWA end of season and we have about 70 people in the old Coronation Hall.  As usual Mum fed everybody and it was a great night.  My mate Cory won the Mark Kenny Award and was so emotional it was great.

Wow, what an amazing week

I spent Good Friday with Dimi, Justin Abbott and Dad on the Maroochy River at the Cod Hole doing some shots for Boarder Magazine.  We were struggling for a while waiting for the sun to poke out from the clouds but when it did it was great.  My first ride on the Maroochy, and I dare say I will be back.   Had a sneak peak at Dimi's camera when we finished.  Awesome shots, he is such a great photographer.  And Justin Abbott was awesome, the was throwing massive Crow Mobe's so far out into the flats he almost ran out of rope before he landed them.  Lots of fun to watch him punish himself like that and the photo's will be brilliant.
Spent this morning out with a crew from Channel 9 and NBN for some news segments.  Dad is great at publicity and he always says anything that gets wakeboarding in the news in a positive way is a good thing.
Easter is going to be fun!
