O’Neill Wake-Skate-Surf Day
The concept was simple: Put a crew together of O’Neill’s best surfers, wakeskaters, and wakeboarders. Go surfing in the morning, hit the lagoon in the afternoon and see how the experiment works out. After all, we are water brethren and it was going to be a great challenge for all who came to shred. On the surf side we had WCT competitor Roy Powers and San Diego’s finest Kyle Knox leading the charge, on the wake side we had Australia’s Scotty Broome and wakeskate phenom Nick Taylor there to represent. After a long day in the water, which included a tow at and Lagoon session, it was interesting to watch how top level athletes from different sports approach a new discipline. In the end, there was a new found respect for each other’s sport, and newly formed friendships that will last a lifetime. Thanks to Scotty Broome for being the “master mind” behind the day.
