Something quirky about you: My brother and I wanted to be WWE Pro Wrestlers as kids.
Most unexpected wakeboarding experience: Due to traveling so much, it surprised me how much the wakeboarding season takes away from the amount of time to freeride, learn, and practice new tricks.
What are you up to when you’re not on the water? I enjoy playing disc golf, hanging in the garden, and going for pontoon rides.
What’s your training regime off the water? In the off season, I do loads of strength training 4 days a week to build muscle. During the on season, 2 to 3 days I work on stability, conditioning, and injury prevention exercises.
