While pure on-the-water talent is something we’d all love to be blessed with, sometimes it takes painful fall after painful fall to make progress as a skier. On top of that, the only way we can all enjoy the benefits of tournament weekends is due to the work that team captains, coaches, board members put in each and every season.
Who did you see putting in the most effort for themselves or their team this year?
There is not a minute that goes by during ski season that I am not appreciating Sam’s hard work and dedication to the team. He was always eager to be on the water and itching to learn new tricks. Sam started trick skiing during the summer and pulled off a top 5 finish at Allentucky with a trick run of 380 points, and followed with another consistent pass at ripfest with a top 10 finish! Not only on the water, but off the water too! Sam learned the point system like the back of his hand to come up with different ways to maximize our points at tournaments and contributing new ideas to our team on the daily.
