I feel pretty lucky living in Orlando Florida as a kiteboarder. My favorite style of riding is rails and kickers so I am blessed with having the best cable wake park in the world at my back door. Alongside that I live in one of the coolest neighborhoods called “The Hood” its located on Clear Lake which hosts some of the best wakeboarders in the world, not to name drop but homies like, Brian Reeder, Shane Bonifay, Marc Rossiter, Adam Errintgton, Jimmy Lariche, Mitch Langfield (My aussie c*nt roommate), Collin Harrington, Erik Ruck, Tony Carroll and many more.. these are all my neighbors and friends so I am super blessed to have them in my life and be able to party and ride with them. Being said, I met the editor of Alliance, Garrett Cortese while riding on Jimmy’s boat one evening, and I decided to be ballsy and email him. My main goal was to hopefully get one of my photos published from my trip to Nitro City. We did not come to an agreement on those photos, but I was even luckier because he wanted to do a photo shoot with (me?!) here are the results. Couldn’t be happier! Not only did I get one photo but, I got 3…. Might I add this is my first time being published in a wakeboard magazine? I love the fact that kiting and cable wakeboarding can be one in the same. you can train for either in both sports and reach limits you never thought possible. I am so thankful for everyone who has helped me in this past year. cheers ! Anything can happen in life, just don’t give up on your dreams!
