Drew has more natural talent and style with a board then anyone I know. He’s one of those guys you can hand any kind of board and he'll throw down a line of tricks that you wish you could even think about trying. Drew grew up a professional skimboarder and he brings with him the style and finesse of being in two inches of water to hovering over 10 feet and landing with a handle. Drew first premiered his abilities in the film Flatline, where he threw down huge shuvs and new wake-to-wake tricks and maneuvers popped higher then most have ever seen. Drew recently joined the Omen Wakeskates family, and won his first two professional contests, Hippodrome and Rock the Wake. Every time I meet up with Drew he has had some new trick to show me, whether it be a huge wake-to-wake big spin or a re-entry 540 shuv. Drew already left his mark in skimboarding and wakesurfing, and now Drew’s commitment to wakeskating is second to none.
