Dan started wakeboarding in 2015 behind his father-in-laws Malibu, equipped with a fly-high pole. After a while he thought “there’s got to be a bigger wave”. At a boat show in Boston, he was introduced to the G23 and the sport of wakesurfing. “I can remember getting up the first time, and thinking this is way less painful than wakeboarding, I should stick to this” he says, and the obsession began.
After trying countless boards over the first year, he came across a Soulcraft and never looked back. Working with Jeff on board fitment and style accelerated his riding abilities the following season. It was not until he spent a few days getting lessons from Mike and Angie Viland that his riding really took off. “The foundational work you learn with them really opens up your riding abilities as you progress. They are such amazing coaches.”
In his first year of competing in 2020, Dan was able to finish 10th overall in the Men’s amateur division. He’s looking forward to putting the SuperFly on the scene in the Outlaw division where he hopes the competition will push his riding even further. His favorite part of the sport is when he helps a new rider drop the rope, get in the sweet spot and smile from ear to ear. It never gets old.
SuperFly is everything you come to expect from a board targeted at pushing a riders boundaries and leading skill progression and advancement. It’s modern design influence is rooted from an iconic outline, the Stretch FlyBoy - designed by Jeff and James Walker many, many years ago which has become sort of a cult classic among connoisseurs of wake surf.
Writing a new page in the modern wake surf shapers playbook, we took this outline and focused on maximizing performance to match the powerful waves being offered by todays premiere boat manufacturers. With these design goals, SuperFly received our latest hybrid rail profile, model specific advanced base and deck concaves for extremely easy release, maximum agility and ample board control for the seasonsed surfer.
If you’re looking to stake claim to rotational tricks and boost huge airs - the SuperFly delivers.
