My 2012 year... One word. AMAZING! This video doesn't explain the amount of fun I had last year, but it sure does show you that I traveled the whole world to wakeboard! I've always been a boat rider and competing in the USA for the ProTour. I never knew I'd travel to so many places around the world to wakeboard, it's so cool! I'm also meeting new people in every country who share my passion! It's crazy to see how big cable wakeboarding has become in the last 3 years! I use to have to explain what wakeboarding was (like snowboarding behind a boat on water instead of snow) haha. Now I just say "have you heard of wake brothers" they usually say yes. I remember before I hurt myself in 2008 everyone was about boat riding, then I came back a year later and cable was now accepted and air tricks were in! Since 2010 it's all about rails and 2.0. It's so cool to see everything happening. I didn't attended many 2.0 events last year, but this year I would love to! They look so much fun. A huge crowd, riding cable, traveling, and being with friends! I couldn't ask for more! 2012 was awesome for me, I got to go to Thailand in the beginning of the year and ended my year in Abu Dhabi with a huge GO KART race against pretty much the whole cable industry haha. I know lots of my footage is shaky and blurry and not clean landings, but I worked really hard to retrieve these clips from friends. Most of these clips I did not know I had a camera pointed at me, friends happen to be filming me around the world and I decided to take them all and make a little video. So I'm sorry for that. Last year all happened because of my parents, OWC, JOBE, The WWA and because I love wakeboarding! One thing... 2013... More fun, more cables, and more videos! Hope everyone enjoys this video!
