Brian Arthur is a unique rider. This 24-year-old came on the scene this year and has already made his mark in wakeboarding. First, he was a top finalist in the Wake Boarding magazine star search. Then, before a star search winner had been selected, he signed on with Connelly to ride in the Team Challenge and won his heat. Later, he competed on the tour and captured three top-15 finishes, including one pro final. All while coaching full time at Champion Wakeboard School and occasionally performing for the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team. Brian is the "outsider" who's arrived.
