Wakeham through to finals in the O’Neill Evolution

Our man Dan Wakeham has qualified for the finals of the O'Neill Evolution, currently underway in - what looks like - sunny Davos. We're super stoked for him, the event is 6* TTR and is the first of the Swatch TTR World Tour series.

Dan said: “I went out to the states before Christmas with a plan to progress my riding standard. I learned a new trick which ups my level closer to the competition standard. I don’t have as many technical tricks as some of the others but i am a powerful rider. I plan to go bigger than most while keeping style and control. There is a new scoring system and 40% is given on flow. So if i keep smooth then i am in with a chance. I have tried a few doubles in training but have taken some heavy blows. I am tough enough so i will take it like a man and soldier through. Training starts at 9 am tomorrow so i plan on having an early night”.

You can watch Dan represent and throw down his shizzle LIVE tomorrow morning on Freecaster from 10am.
