When Trajan Tracey posted on Nautique athlete and MTV star Bob Soven’s Facebook page about his wish to wakeboard, he never expected to get such a welcoming response from the wakeboarding community that would lead to actually getting the chance to hit the water. With only one leg, he wasn’t sure that it was even possible. Trajan suffered from a congenital disorder at birth called Amniotic band syndrome that took several fingers and toes along with his right leg from the knee down, but that hasn’t stopped him from any of the other sports he plays like football, soccer, lacrosse, and wrestling. So what about wakeboarding? When double amputee Extremity Games competitor Wes Webb noticed Trajan’s post, he responded assuring him that wakeboarding was absolutely possible and set the ball in motion contacting OWC Manager Jeff Trudeau to help make this dream a reality. Jeff contacted Correct Craft CFO Sean Marrero and his good friend Pro-Kiteboarder/Wakeboarder Sean Reyngoudt who lives in the Florida Keys and has won the Extremity Games on multiple occasions to come in and help out. Being a single leg amputee as well, Sean was able to give Trajan flawless instruction alongside Bob Soven when they all met this past Sunday afternoon at OWC. The generosity and support given by everyone involved is a true testament to the great people we have in our industry and what this sport is all about. A big thanks goes out to Sean Reyngoudt for making the trip up to help out with this very special day.
