Location: Lake Jessamine
Trick: 360 flip on the lip
Temp: 75 F
Boat Driver: Brandon Thomas

I hadn’t shot with Chris before or heard of him before I met him on this day at Lake Jessamine.  He’d been riding a lot with Brandon Thomas and they’d both have been pushing each other really hard.  Chris seriously landed five or six 360 flips in a row on this day.  Each one got bigger he did and each one he shook his head upset like he needed to do a better one. I thought maybe he thought I was shooting sequences, but he really just wanted to catch one really high for a still. Chris made my jaw drop upon first seeing him ride and I think he’s going to be able to do that to a lot of people this coming year.
