A MESSAGE FROM DANIEL
Your top 3 stretches you do before you ride?
(Ankle on the Knee) Put your ankle on opposite Knee while laying on the floor and bring your knee towards your chest. This is great for the lower back.
(Butterfly Stretch) Sitting on the floor place the soles of your feet together holding your feet with your hands and lean forward.
(Windmill stretch) standing with both legs spread apart reach with your arm to an opposite foot or leg ( i.e left arm to right foot).
How you mentally get into the zone?
Feel it don't force it!
Best LF Memory?
There is a lot so I'll just have to choose one...filming for LF'N Awesome was an all time experience traveling together with the team and hitting all the parks around the world.
What is your spirit animal and why?
I'm a turtle. Home is everywhere, haha.
Describe yourself in one sentence?
I'm very passionate about my riding and the way I ride, I love meeting new people and already ready for a mission!
At the moment I've been digging back into watching some stuff from Shredtown Crew! They were so ahead of their time!!
What is your favorite trick to watch?
Rusty Malinowski's Backside 5.
This is a tough one! Anything sour or spicy!
Best Boat Wake?
Nothing too big! Just enough to have some fun!
Which rider would you say has the best style?
Everyone brings their own elements, I believe I really like Derek Cook for natural style and Randall and Danny Harf for just going big and making wakeboarding look good.
Why should people support LF or ride LF product?
Liquid Force is the backbone of the sport.
Why wakeboarding and what brought you here?
I got introduced to wakeboarding through skateboarding. The reason it stuck was similarities between the two along with the weather here in Thailand is what kept the passion going.
What are the top 3 wake parks around the world?
Thai Wake Park 😉
Best wake memory of the last year?
Being able to travel and meet up with everyone that I'd missed over the 2 years!!
Any upcoming projects you are hyped on?
Since I missed out on the first leg of my Europe trip, I gave myself a mission to film a winch part to make up for lost time. 💚
What do you like to do outside of Wakeboarding?
I DJ and skateboard in my spare time, as well as take care of all my animals. That keeps me entertained and occupied daily.
Favorite isle in the grocery store?
Snack and baking isle.
Do you play a musical instrument?
DJ's these days, they wanna be a rockstar.. but we're the idiots who can't play the guitar. 😅
If you could be a pro in another sport what would it be?
First thing you do when you wake up?
Feed the pets and let them out for a walk.
Biggest accomplishment in life?
Either becoming WWA world champ at age 13 or Taking the win at Wake the Line for both wakeboard and wakeskate after splitting my head open on the dock.
Biggest Goal in life?
Keep riding and having fun on the water.
Country you want to visit the most?
A place I haven't been which I think I would be awesome to check out is South Africa
