This year I didn’t ride so well in the Rail jam but took 1st in the Big Air Kicker Contest!
Liverpool Wakepark hosted me for a week of coaching and filming, check it out!
“Team OBrien and Neff riders, CK Koester and Matt Crowhuest have every reason to be sessioning the new for 2013 Unit Parktech quarter pipe at Liquid Leisure. The fact that it’s been well over a year for Matt, that this is the only such obstacle in the south, it’s the new an improved shape by Unit. Oh and there’s a rather large contest coming to town on this thing as part of Liquids Plastic Playgrounds – King Of Vert!
Aside from all of this and most important reason of all, it is so much fun. This is the boys dipping a toe so expect to see a whole lot more with their next session!
I am lucky enough to not only be the first featured rider in the 45 Gallons of Fun series, but also am proud to have produced it. Find out what its all about in the description bellow.
45 Gallons Of Fun is a brand new video series from Liverpool Wake Park. The idea is to push riders to create unique setups and hit features they have never seen before. Liverpool Wake Park provides the wake park, all their normal features plus a whole load of props, including 45 gallon oil barrels, a missile, pipes, rails, etc. The riders come to the park and create fun and unique features and film a video edit. While the riders are there they will also ride and coach at a Friday Night Jam with Liverpool’s local riders and members. It is a fun series designed to progress the sport and test riders imagination and ability! There is no real prize, just the feeling of doing something new, different and fun. Liverpool Wake Park officially invites pro riders and teams to come up and see what they can make.
That is basically what the last few days have consisted of for Myself, Lee Debuse and Matt Crowhurst. To say it has been intense is an understatement, 2 days, 14hrs of wakeboarding, double that in footage, 8hrs of driving, plenty of eating and minimal sleep. The answer to that equation is some pretty dead wakeboarders, but i cannot lie its been awesome and the footage will tell the tale perfectly. Be excited it shouldn’t take too long, in the mean time check out a small selection of iPhone shots from the trip and the links to the guys making the edit Family Creative – Family’s Vimeo
I’m super happy to announce that for the 2014 period and hopefully more I will be supported by Neff Headwear

After riding Liverpool Monday morning there was no time to loose back in the car and straight back down the M1 towards London where one of the real hidden gems for British wakeboarders lie. Club Wake Park in Grendonshire. It’s always fun and it’s always flat.
Enjoy, we certainly did.
Side note: Get some mates together, map out a route and hit the road. We promise you won’t regret it!
