Still in Alabama - Tuscaloosa

After a solid week of riding and shooting in Dadeville, we head west towards Tuscaloosa to spend some time with Yancey Crew at his little bit of paradise in Sunshine Pointe, Northport, AL. We ended up riding all day everyday and riding his jetskis in our spare time, then later take the golf cart up to the house and skate his mini ramp everynight, was definetly a week to top last for sure! My riding is coming along really good, been hitting huge double ups, trying new tricks, getting solid footage down for my new edit, some raw footage of myself riding on Lake Tuscaloosa. Check it out!

Sweet Home Alabama - Dadeville

I'm lucky to say that i got to stay at Clint Westbrooks house in Dadeville, Alabama. Mainly becuase Clint lives on one of the most beautiful lakes i have ever ridden on, was awesome riding behind his Nautique 210 and also our other friend Spencer Waldrep, who lives just down the lake has a 230 which we rode every day. New tricks were being thrown down, everyone was shredding, beats wear blaring, i was having the sickest time out on Lake Martin filming from a jetski getting gopro footage, doing sunset photoshoots and getting sick chaseboat footage, we put an edit together of our week in Dadeville, check it out!

My first trip to Missouri

After an awesome week of cable and boat riding fun in Texas, we headed east for Branson, Missouri for the 3rd stop of the Pro Tour, stoked to be in Pro's, after a successful weekend at the last Tour stop.

I had such a sick ride in the heats and found myself through to the quarter finals along with Dean Smith. Had another solid ride but got out ridden by the Pro's, still happy with myself, and its cool that more people notice your rides when you’re in Pro's its awesome, pushes me to ride harder!

Fort Worth Texas Pro Tour Stop 2

Had an awesome time coming from Orlando to Fort Worth, Texas, travelling with the girlfriend and my Aussie friend sports photographer Twiggy.
About to shred on the Nautique 230
About 2 hours out from Texas, on the morning of the contest, Twiggy (photgrapher) was driving and ran out of gas while Jillian and I were sleeping in the back seat, and it caused me to miss my ride in Junior Mens, which is unfortunate because I started the season strong with a 2nd place spot in the first stop at Acworth Georgia.   In hindsight, it was one of the best mistakes that has happened to me because now I then had the opportunity to ride Pro Mens at the stop as a once off and go back to Junior Pro's if I wanted to. 
I made the decision that day to step up to Pro Mens and I'm stoked on it. My rookie event on the Pro Tour, I had a pretty tough heat, but still stood up a solid ride and was really stoked on it.  I'm so pumped for the rest of the summer now, it will be interesting to see what will unvale. I was stoked to get the chance to ride Corey Bradleys big ass wake that his Nautique 230 pushes out, one of the best wakes I've ridden in a while.
Dyla Prideaux riding CTRL at Hydrous
Boat wasn't the only thing i got to enjoy in my stay in Texas, I was also lucky enough to be able to ride at Hydrous Cable Park, free of charge thanks to the good people at CTRL Wake. Coincidently my homie Justin Teich, a friend I lived with last summer in Orlando, was there to join me for the week. I had a great time, got alot of stuff on film and got some dirty photos, check them out!
