Heading North to the Sunshine Coast

Recently I have been contemplating whether I should give the Cable Pro Circuit some attention. With cable always being a passion of mine as down time from the boat and a way to relax and really enjoy my time on the water. Watching my good friends Matty Hasler (2013) and James Windsor (2012) win the World Titles in both divisions on the cable, I really decided to sink my teeth into Dedicating a lot more of my time into the cable scene.

I have just got a nice place on the Sunshine Coast, about 5 minutes away from the cable park I learnt to ride at, Go-Wake Cable Park in Bli Bli which is my favourite cable in Australia to ride at. This has really given me the best opportunity to ride every day and really put myself to the test. 

Riding with James Windsor, Luke Boor, Mitch Langfield, Ben Doreen, Manu Rupp and all the other Bli Bli boys have been great as they were the original cable boys I grew up riding with. I have a massive season ahead of me before departing to the States once again, and I'm really excited to see how it all pans out

First comp of the Aussie Summer

Stoked to be back in my home town and catching up with all the Wakeboard Vic crew. Great contest, perfect conditions and the best Pro Men’s line up I have ever seen at a Wakeboard Vic Contest. With the likes of Parker Siegele, Nic Rapa, Jacob Hore, Sam Singleton, and more. 

With over 50 riders it's really great to see the future of our sport evolving. Watching Parker go off the dock and land multiple mobe 5's, 7's and 9's the pressure was on, but I'm glad I put it together and finished on top of the podium which was a great start to my Aussie competitive summer.

The Aussie Summer Starts Today!

I have now been back in Australia for around 3 weeks now and I have to say that I am not liking the Melbourne weather one bit!

I have been taking this time to my advantage to do some cross training to try and get fit in my little time off before the Australian season kicks off again.   A month off the board and away from the boat is good and something my folks encourage me to do every year.  It's a chance for your body to recover as well. 

The Aussie Summer kicks off this weekend with a Wakeboard Victoria Round up at Twin Lakes, Mulwala. It will be fun to finally ride again, and catch up with all of my good friends from Vic and see how they have progressed over the winter! I've notice a lot of the Bundalong Crew kept riding right through Winter so I'm expecting to see some progression.

My other big focus this year is Cable.  I am super excited about the development of the sport and the direction being taken with the establishment of Cable Wakeboard Australia.  At last someone is taking the sport seriously and realising that you need to be professional in the way events, judging and formats are managed.   I am setting up a base on the Sunshine Coast and will be using Go Wake's Cable Park at Bli Bli as me base.  

Yep, I'm starting to get the itch back. I also have a new video coming out shortly which I'm excited about.  It will be a BIG summer ahead, can't wait to see how it all pans out.
