David, who is used to the frigid conditions of his native Ireland, was eager to jump in the water first. It was a “colder” day in Orlando, but for him it was balmy. While most local riders would wear a shorty wetsuit or neo top, David straight skinned it just because he could. If you’ve seen any of David’s YouTube videos you know he’s an energetic guy. That is no different on the water. The kid has a spring in his step, and he’s always doing something on his board, whether it’s an inside-out roll-to-revert off the startup wake, little butter slides on the lip, or charging into the flats, David isn’t sitting still when he’s on his board. It’s that energy and enthusiasm that makes his videos so popular, not to mention the fact that he truly loves being on the water. The ear-to-ear grin he rocks while riding isn’t a forced one. He’s truly that happy and he brings a great energy to whoever else he is hanging out or riding with. During one of his rides on Taylor's new Ri237 he managed to link up with acclaimed GoPro photo/video man Chris Rogers, who snapped this epic shot of a tail grab front flip. Upon seeing it, we knew it had to become the next #CoverUp feature for the website.
