While I might not be considered an OG on these forums and haven't made thousands of posts, Ive been creepin' since 2007, cant believe its been 11 years. I'm still wakeskating as much as I can while working the 8-5 at the family run electrical wholesaler. I'm married, 3 dogs no kids yet.

Matti and I started the South African Wakeskate Tour about 3 years ago to service our small scene here in SA and I'm stoked on how its going so far, we did a 3 stops last and have 2 in the bag so far this year (2015/2016 we did 3 events with no overall tour standings) and for the last 3 years we have been the only wake based events running in SA. Hoping we can carry on and get some more exposure to more people and bring more people into the sport and hopefully get more sponsors, at the moment its all self funded.

I've had some amazing experiences wakeskating, I've had the pleasure of meeting Nick when he came down to visit his son Matti. I got the stay with Diets and Matti for a month in Orlando, met Byerly, Bear, Chase, Reed who graciously let us ride battle falls. Went to Poland for a comp where I met Oskar G, one of the funniest dudes i've ever met and recently I met Andrew Roehm, Andy P, Zuzanna & Cole when they came to film for Istudiomo. I linked up with Andy when I was up in Orlando and he introduced me to the whole clear lake crew, James, Brandon, Tynna, TJ, Maria, Sam & Tad. I was really stoked to get to meet some of the people who have been part of the scene on this site and over in the states. They are all awesome people. Its a beautiful thing how this little sport of wakeskating connects us.

It's in my blood, I wont stop till I cant stand up on the board anymore and I'm looking forward to many more adventures and new friends I encounter on the journey.

So yeah...

That's so cool DaleFish! I wish I would have checked this site before last year. I was in Cape Town last christmas, and I saw a few wake boats and I was wishing I was out there!

Loved it! What a cool place to live. Unfortunate about the catastrophic drought that was happening, but it was a place I could definitely live!

t-rex, Yeah man the drought was gnarly, my home lake almost completely dried, our reservoirs are back up to about 70% now. the most we've had in 3 years, so its getting better, hopefully we'll get more rain so I can have water in my home lake again.
