Watching Nick Davies' final run at the 2009 Wake Park World Championships in March, Dean Smith summed up the 19-year-old English rider perfectly when he said, "The Mario Brothers' theme song should be playing while Nick rides." Davies' riding style is similar to his lifestyle: energetic, bouncy, loud and playful. Yet, despite his habit of making wake parks look like his playthings, there's plenty of evidence Davies takes his riding seriously. Hyperlite just gave him his own pro model board and made him the marquee rider on its new cable team. He's landed several 1080s off kickers, and he left the CamSur Watersports Complex as the 2009 Wake Park World Champion.
