Biography Wakesurfer

Growing up I was never really into board sports, I would try everything from wakeboarding to, skateboarding, to snowboarding in the winter time. My brother was always the one who caught on really fast, and I would be the kid falling all the time. So after highschool I wanted to get back into a wake sport because I was always pulling my brother wakeboarding. I tried wakeskating for about a year riding behind boat, and cable. i managed to learn a Ollie fs shuv, but I never progressed passed that. Then one day my brother told me about wakesurfing, and luckily one of his friends left a board out at the lake. First day out on the lake, i tossed in the rope and surfed for the first time behind our boat. I was instantly hooked. i began looking up boards to get, tricks to learn, and watching videos of people surfing. I bought my first Phase 5 at the end of 2009, which I landed my first surface 360 on. Once I started learning new tricks and improved, I would post short videos of my riding on Facebook. Fortunately for me, phase 5 saw some of them and decided to pick me up as a team rider. Ever since, I have been in 2 phase 5 team videos, made new sponsors, and made my first podium in 2012.
