John Dreiling is best known for his wake-park riding prowess (and no holds barred approach), but he has a background in boat riding. This spring, with cable parks getting shut down for a period due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dreiling started getting out on the boat more. With his Slingshot Volt 152 park board underfoot (and finless), he realized boat wakes don’t need to be viewed strictly as giant ramps for big air and double flips. Like a wake park, wakes can be approached at, jibbed on, and utilized in a variety of ways. The idea for “Mini Wake Sessions” was born.
