This photo, which is the latest cover of @wakeboardingmag shows me going after something that had never been done before. The concept and photo was nearly 5 years in the making and was on the verge of not coming to fruition. It was quite the adventure that started on the other side of the planet, headed to Texas and finally ended up taking us on 1000 mile journey to Alabama and back. Honestly couldn't be happier with how @rodrigosnaps captured this and absolutely pegs my stokemeter to 11! There is quite the story behind this photo and we knew we wanted to capture the making of this cover so we've brought along videographer @jakesniderfilms to document the journey which ended up being way more drama than I anticipated. @jake_pelot was my driver and also wanted my good buddy, and at the time of the shoot, editor of the magazine, @shawnperry to join the adventure as well. We laughed, I cried, and we brought a tambourine. Video going live soon!
Huge thanks to everyone at @wakeguntersville and all the locals up there who were really the nuts and bolts of this operation. They housed us, fed us, and wouldn't let us pay for gas. #SouthernHospitality @nautiqueboats @hyperlitewake @foxracing @aktionparks @orlandowatersports @miamiwatersports @jetpilotcompany @BbTalkinusa @leadwake @wileyx @thisismystory.us #alabamaadventures2017 #WBM2017
