Rookie of the Year (wakeskate)
The French invasion of wakeskating State-side continued in 2013 in epic fashion with the emergence of Clement Depremonville. It’s a good thing wakeskating is a universal language, because understanding Clement in English can be difficult. We’re pretty sure most of the people in America riding with Clement have no idea what he’s saying 95% of the time, but his riding speaks volumes. Clement charges with a reckless abandon that seems to carry through in nearly every aspect of his life. To put it simply, the kid is a lot of bit crazy. But that’s okay. We’re stoked to see what Clement has in store for us in 2014 – be it goofy French interviews at the Wakeskate Tour, a podium finish or two, some crazy Euro dancing, or any combination of the three.
