After an amazing time in Florida, I flew to Phoenix to meet my girlfriend so that we could spend several days with Mike and Angie Viland. The weather in Phoenix was super hot and dry, but there were beautiful landscapes, sand dunes, and an amazing sky. We visited Lake Pleasant to ride and do a lot of wakesurfing. Mike and Angie are such nice people that are super in love with the wakesurfing world. This last season they attempted 11 contests and even created their own school called Wakesurfers AZ, which is the first wakesurfing school in this area of the United States where they do clinics and coach people.

Bruce Cook is a 26-year-old Canadian motocross rider who earlier this year suffered a serious spinal injury while attempting a double front flip at the Nitro Circus Live Tour. He is confident about his future and is working hard to get better through going to rehab so that he can get back on his bike and get back to doing what he loves. This guy’s ambition is incredible—he recently got on a Tige boat for the first time and tried wakesurfing behind it for a film called "The Paddler Movie". Last week he was even able to ride his dirtbike for the first time! We hope the best for him in his recovery and were fortunate to be able to ask him some questions about his journey this past year.

As with most Australian wakeboarders, I have started heading to the USA a few times in the last year. My first visit to the USA was in 2009 when I won junior boys at the 2009 Worlds in Orlando. 12 months ago I travelled to Reno for the MyWake final and the release of the awesome ASR. While I did compete in the Wake Surf event I was off the wakeboard as I was recovering from an operation to repair the patella tendon in my knee. This injury set me back nearly a year but it taught me a lot about the importance of stretching and warming up before I ride. Being a part of the ASR release was sick and this was a great chance to meet the rest of the Tige team.
