Wakeboarding Doesn’t Have to Hurt

By | Blog
In our world, we’re often told that by the time we’re forty or (fill in the blank) we are supposed to hang up many of the activities we participated in and enjoyed from our youth. We’re trained to believe that by that particular time of life, our bodies will hurt and ache and as a result, we will be sidelined from the things we once loved.

AWAKIN Wakeboard & Wakesurf Camp

By | Blog
This spring, while in Florida, we prayed about what God would want in a wakeboarding camp. From those prayers, AWAKIN was born. AWAKIN is a three day, day-camp carefully constructed to create an atmosphere for campers to grow their passion for wakeboarding/wakesurfing with top notch instruction, gain a greater understanding of their purpose with faith based messages and influences, and to seek their full potential. It’s our mission to help AWAKIN those things in our campers.

Surfers For Autism

On Saturday, October 28, I had the opportunity to volunteer with a super cool organization called Surfers For Autism. This is a non-for-profit organization that allows children with autism the chance to surf and paddleboard.

This October I had the opportunity to work with young shredder, Riley James. Sydney and I traveled up to a lake near the Iowa/Missouri boarder this summer to give lessons to the James family for the day, and this is where I first met Riley. In that single session, Riley landed a tantrum in only five attempts. It was at that point I knew he had serious potential. Read More
