HOMETOWN: Lake Placid, FL
FAVORITE WARM-UP TRICK:
Simple air. I find it to be a key trick to feel out the wave for timing and pop for other tricks in that session.
FAVORITE NAUTIQUE ATHLETE TO RIDE/SKI WITH (AND WHY):
Noah Flegel. Whenever I get the chance that is. I love going big on tricks and it’s fun to watch him do the same, it’s almost like a push to go bigger and better.
EVENT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY YEAR:
I am very excited to attend the events of the Nautique Wakesurf Series that started in 2018. This past year in 2019 the events of the Nautique series was absolutely incredible especially the prestigious Masters, everyone who attended I think would agree! The new format and vibe compared to previous events I have attended in the past give the competitive side of wakesurfing a fresh new feel, riders will love.
HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF (WAKEBOARDING, WAKESURFING, WATERSKIING):
Weight lifting, snowboarding and kickboxing.
WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIALS FOR A DAY ON THE WATER:
My 2020 G23 Paragon, Phase 5 LEEO, a cooler full of waters, and some jams!
THE MOST REWARDING PART OF YOUR JOB:
Meeting new people, interacting and teaching the sport of wakesurfing, especially to the little groms, experiencing so many places around the world and my growing family at Wake for Warriors.
WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING YOU’VE EVER DONE:
Starting up my new company Leeo Apparel. I have had some amazing help but starting up a company from the ground is no easy task. I am so excited to see how it grows! Leeoapparel.com
