Humanoid Wakeboards has signed laid-back Aussie native Chris O’Shea to its pro team. O’Shea is one of the world’s top free riders and he’s fresh off winning the year’s ultimate free-ride prize, the Best Wakeboard Video Performance at the 2011 TransWorld Wake Awards.
O’Shea joins a Humanoid Wakeboards team that also includes Eddie Valdez, Bob Sichel and Tino Santori. He’ll be riding Humanoid’s new 1up board wrapped in his signature colorway. Humanoid says that the Livesimple.it creator and founder of Follow ropes and handles is going to have a huge impact on its design and media programs going forward.
Look out for an official welcome video in the near future and a 2013 pro model series. Meantime, check O’Shea’s feature in our 2011 Wake Awards Special Issue.
