Local Wakeboarder Goes Big!

 

Lake Oconee Resident Sam Henry To Compete in the Nautique King Of Wake Tournament in Orlando

The 2013 Nautique King of Wake tournament will commence April 25th at the Orlando Water Watersports Complex.  Local resident Sam Henry is gearing up to strut his stuff during the elite competition of the world's best wakeboarders.

Mr. Henry has been a long time customer of Crowe Marine.  He was first introduced to the sport of wakeboarding through his god brother, and then met Crowe Marine's George Hooker.  One of the George's first Hyperlite Wakeboard demo class students, the two have worked closely together.  Ready to go pro, Sam moved down to Orlando, one of the world's wakeboarding hotspots.

Sam wanted to share this tidbit with anyone starting out in this exciting sport: "just go out and have fun with it and don't hold back!"
