My Story

I've been a professional water ski jumper for 26 years. I'm a 5 time World Champion, 8 time traditional World Record holder, 5 time Night jump world record holder and 2 time ski fly record holder and have 130+ professional wins. I am married to Karen Truelove, a professional slalom skier, and we have 2 sons named Dash (11 years old) and Ridge (6 years old). Karen and I split our time between skiing events and acting as marine consultants helping companies develop and bring new product to the marine market. Our sport can be a grueling demand on the body, but its also a rewarding experience to travel the world meeting other water enthusiasts and be able to spend the time with our boys that our unusual occupation allows.
