Trevor started riding a wakeboard when he was 10 and began taking it seriously a year or two later. By 12, he was competing in events, and at 16 he was riding on the PWT. Reed started wakeboarding at 4 and landed his first tantrum at 6, which to this day still bums him out because he wasn't the youngest ever to land an invert (that award goes to Phil Soven, age 5 years, 11 months). By 1998 Reed was riding in local grassroots contests, and when the Junior Boys category was added to the WWA events in 1999, Reed was riding with the likes of Bob Soven. Trevor went on to compete on the PWT for 14 years, while Reed pushed his wakeskating career to unimaginable heights.
