Not all that long ago we wrote a post regarding cable wakeboarding and how it is going to be a big part of wakeboarding for the future, how it will make the sport much more accessible to the masses, though even as i wrote that article and well before, which i did touch on, is the growing trend for urban wakeboarding.

Slingshot In the Gunn

For the last few years in all our season previews, Aaron Gunn has constantly been earmarked as one of the up and comers in the cable scene, and even some of the boat scene. Long considered on the verge of a pro model courtesy of his board sponsor, Liquid Force with a constantly growing talent and trick bag, combined with a right time, right place scenario in which he exploded onto the cable scene. Aaron has been consistently overshadowed by riders who have been more well established in the industry, possibly being the spark that has caused his split with Liquid Force. Now...
