FAVORITE NAUTIQUE ATHLETE TO RIDE/SKI WITH (AND WHY):
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WAKEBOARDING HAS TAKEN YOU?
I’ve been to so many incredible places for wakeboarding. It’s hard to say one place in particular. I would have to say Portugal or Japan. I’ve been to both countries more than once and every time I go back I enjoy it more and more. They are such beautiful countries and the people there are so nice. It’s hard to beat Orlando, I’ve made lifelong friendships there and I always love going back every year.
EVENT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY YEAR:
Moomba Masters. It's by far the best event of the year for me! After coming off a good preseason and are super eager to compete again. Plus it’s the one event we have in AUS which I love. All my friends and family come and support and I love it.
HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF (WAKEBOARDING, WAKESURFING, WATERSKIING):
WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIALS FOR A DAY ON THE WATER:
Mates, my G, wakeboard, good vibes and most importantly gas
THE MOST REWARDING PART OF YOUR JOB:
Just to be able to express myself and say I love what I do. I think peace of mind is one of the most important things in life and if you're happy with who you are and what you do, you will be okay. So the fact I can do something I love everyday with my good mates, I'm happy. Plus I meet some incredible people along the way.
WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING YOU’VE EVER DONE:
I'd have to say there are two hard times in my career. A few years ago I was grinding myself into the ground. Wasn't loving the sport, what I was doing and even wasn't happy with who I was. So I went away from the sport for a few months and came back and decided to wakeboard for the right reasons and I've been a frother ever since. Also, dealing with my shoulder injury. I rode with a blown out shoulder for 6 months and then had my reco. So juggling that was pretty hard for me.
