Raph Derome at O’Neill’s ‘Wake the Line’

French Canadian rider Raphael Derome continues to reign supreme as modern-era wakeboarding’s most progressive cable rider. This past weekend he won O’Neill‘s Wake The Line with an impressive display of power and consistency. Raph natural style gives technical tricks a laid-back feel, pretty much making him your favorite rider’s favorite rider. Check out his winning run below as he edges out out Kevin Henshaw (2nd) and his brother Oli Derome (3rd), respectively.

Daniel Grant at Phuket Wake Park

Daniel Grant’s name is becoming synonymous with amplitude and originality. Liquid Force‘s globe-trotting cable ripper made quite the name for himself in 2012 battling seasoned vets like Chad Sharp and Aaron Rathy at the Red Bull Wake Open last July.

Needless to say, this edit of Daniel shredding Phuket Wake Park in Thailand is mandatory viewing for any wake enthusiast. Props to Kim Yong Il on the edit.
