Wavedaze was one hell of a trip!
I finally made it out there after missing a flight, getting bumped off a flight and sleeping in the terminal of the Miami airport. I got to VA on Friday afternoon and went straight to the water for a lil salt water therapy!

Welcome to Miami

Saturday, we woke up to really small surf, 30mph winds and even snow coming down on the beach but that didn’t stop all of the die hard jet skiers who were hitting the water to get wet. Riders started signing up for the Krash Nationals Freeride Contest! We kicked off the contest and had riders battling the crazy conditions as best as they could. I did the announcing for most of the contest and had a lot of fun laughing at my own bad jokes, cheering on the riders and keeping the event moving! We finished up the rookies, amateurs, masters and runabout class. We started the pro class Saturday which was the largest class full of the worlds top riders, and due to the conditions we decided to finish up with all the rest of the Pro rounds Sunday!
Mic check, 1, 2, 3…
Then we did the raffle where they gave away all types of good stuff like LM T-shirts, Kavinci handle poles, flywheels, Ignitions, totes, motors you name it! We did the awards, congrats to all the riders who competed and who finished on top! And after that we hit the club for the annual after party at Peabody’s!

Sunday, the weather and waves were much better. We had an awesome time finishing up the pro contest. Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle a bit and took a loss for the weekend but I was able to walk it off and I’m only a little sore. So, now I’m determined to train harder and continue strength training my ankle! Big ups to Mick Anthony, Bruno Jacobs and Chris Grace respectively for taking out the pro class, you boys ripped it!
Saturday, go time
Big thanks to all my sponsors, to everyone who helped me make this trip possible and Dan Swartz for putting the event together! I had a great time and I’m looking forward to next year!
