YEARS WAKESURFING 13 years
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WAKESURFING?
Spending time with my family. I also enjoy surfing at the beach and any type of outdoor games.
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WAKESURFING HAS TAKEN YOU?
Lake Powell is a beautiful place. I’ve also been to Lake Calabogie in Canada, and Calabogie is a nice lake that has a cool wakesurf scene. Had the chance to go to Melbourne Australia this past year. Really cool city and super clean.
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I use to break and train, roping and cutting horses. Even did some team roping in a handful of local events.
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE MOST PLAYED SONGS IN YOUR PLAYLIST?
Country Boy by Aaron Lewis
I Play the Road by Zac Brown
This Is How We Roll by Florida Georgia Line. My son loves it!
DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
I do a little stretching and jogging. I go through my run mentally and visualize the whole run happening. Then I try to keep it light and joke around with everyone to keep my head clear. Then a quick short prayer and I’m ready to ride.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
Winning 7 World Championships has been a huge accomplishment. Also staying in the sport for so long and the hundreds of people I have taught to wakesurf are what stand out the most to me. But my biggest accomplishment is doing my best to be a great dad for my son and a great husband for my wife!
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Chase your dreams and never give up on yourself! If you believe in yourself and have a confidence you can achieve anything.
