Q & A


Place of birth
Guelph Ontario Canada

Years wakeboarding?
10 years Wakeboarding, 6 years Pro

What is your favorite thing to do when you're not Wakeboarding?
Golf! It takes my mind off of wakeboarding and gives my body a break. I love to go golfing. I also like doing yard work a bit but I'd much rather be golfing!

Where is your favorite place wakeboarding has taken you?
My favorite trip I've been on just happened this summer. I was able to take the other riders for O'Neill to my family cottage in Canada where I grew up waterskiing/wakeboarding, where it all started for me. It was really cool to have Byerly there because as a kid I'd ride at my cottage trying to copy things I'd seen him do in the magazines. It was really cool to be there shooting for alliance. It felt like things had come full circle. We had a great group of guys on the trip. It'll be one of my favorite trips of my career I think.

Tell us an interesting fact that most people don't know about you:
I hate scary movies. After I watched the movie Scream, I've never seen another scary movie since.

What are the top three most played songs in your play list?
It changes a lot but at the moment
Ghostland Observatory: Gimme the Beat
Kid Cudi: Erase Me
Passion Pit: Sleepyhead

Do you have a pre-run routine you do before contests for good luck?
I don't do anything for good luck, I just try to plan my run a good bit in advance so that it gives me a lot of time to think about what I'm going to do. I hate changing my run at the last minute so I try to always stick with my plan no matter what anyone does ahead of me good or bad.

What has been the biggest accomplishment of your career?
I've had many accomplishments I'm proud of, making my first Pro Tour Final and finishing 4th, winning Canadian nationals, being asked to be a coach at The Boarding School, and most recently becoming part of Byerly Boards and Nautique!

If you could give someone one piece of advice, what would it be?
If you want something bad enough and your willing to put in the work, it can become reality! I'm a kid from a country that is covered in snow 8 months of the year and I'm able to wakeboard for a living! Believe in what you want and don't stop working at it, ever!
