Raph Derome – Beyond Perception

Is this the future of wakeboarding?

Get a taste of Raph Derome’s brilliant new wakeboarding edit with a teaser for Beyond Perception.

raph derome
 
People have different perceptions of Raph Derome. As a guy that prefers to keep a low profile and living the life of a self-described introvert, it’s sometimes difficult to express who he really is to those around him. But that’s why he lets his wakeboarding speak for him.

With an endless drive and dedication to wakeboarding, Raph is truly in it for the love of the game. Never quite satisfied, wakeboarding to him is about the constant pursuit of progression and evolving his own unique vision of the sport.

Beyond Perception, made by Red Bull Media House in partnership with Malibu Boats and Billabong, is the product of two years of Raph’s tireless effort to capture the soul of wakeboarding and a visual declaration to the masses that there is much more to wakeboarding beyond contests.

How did you get into wake boarding? My older brother, Jason, started riding a few years before me. I always used to go watch him at the cable until one day I decided to try it. After my first try, I was hooked.

Gnarliest injury? Towards the end of last year, I fell on a scarecrow off of the kicker and tore the ligaments in my knee. My leg got put into a full plaster cast and I was out for 4 months which sucked!

Favourite trick? Blind 360 off the kicker.

What’s it like being the girl wake board sister with 2 brothers wake boarding in the family? It’s awesome. I have fun going riding with them and we all push each other. My younger brother is still quite new to the sport but my older brother has been wakeboarding for longer than I have so he coaches me quite abit and encourages me a lot.

Who is your favourite rider and why? Nick Davies, he has his own unique style of riding and doing tricks.

If you weren’t a wakeboarder what would you be? Nothing comes to mind, I can’t imagine not being on the water.

What’s the one trick that gives you trouble and why? Definitely a railey. I’ve had a few concussions from this trick so I find it super scary.

Cable or behind the boat? Cable. I enjoy boat but don’t get the opportunity to ride much boat. I stay close to a cable so I ride way more cable than boat. I always have fun riding cable and love the obstacles.

Any weird phobias? Scared of the dark but not sure if that classifies as weird.

What are you most proud of in your wake boarding career so far? Becoming a Roxy teamrider and winning both boat and cable SA nationals last year.

What do you plan to do once you wrap up matric? I want to go travel and wakeboard around the world. I would also l like to compete in international events.

Groms That Rip: The Stuckey Boys

gavin stuckey, trent stucky

After watching this video I feel like i want to give up wakeboarding…. Trent and Gavin Stuckey have been killing it lately, tearing it up at Lake Ronix as well as dominating the features at OWC. Typically, kids this age have a hard time adding any sort of style to their tricks, but when I saw Trent air up that unit staircase, bonk the end, and then frontside 270 into a blind landing, It blew me away.

The FreeRide Project 2 – A Proper Kiteboarding movie

The “FreerRide” project is an idea that started in 2011. Four riders from different brands started traveling together and filming how they wanted the sport to look and be represented.

 

The FreeRide Project 2 - Kiteboarding

Four riders quoted saying, this is a no-mess, un-brand motivated representation of what we want kiteboarding to be and what it means to us as we travel to some of the best spots and biggest wakestyle events throughout the year, to just have fun and ride!

This video goes to South Africa, Greece, Cape Hatteras, Egypt and Russia, with some kiteboarding and wakeboarding action in each spot.

Sit back and enjoy, the video will be available for free download soon. The idea being that you can burn your own DVD/movie, share it at home or play it in your shops!! Spread the word!!

A big THANKS to all involved who made this possible and helped us along the way! The KiteLauncher!!

Black Dog

Crank up your speakers! Black Dog from Cheerwithnico.com

The concept of this short film was simply bringing the feeling of rock onto water. The idea came up some time ago and last year’s fall we got together to realize it.

Black Dog

Five riders thrift shopped for some dope ass clothes and spent a few days at Wakeboard Langenfeld to film for this clip. Manu and the crew turning into beast on the water.

It was very obvious that we would need an amazing song for this. What would fit better than the band with the biggest influence in Rock, Led Zeppelin.

Red Bull: Rising High Big Air

Red Bull Rising High, the megaramp of wakeboarding goes down with a bang in front of 15 000 spectators. Riders and fans celebrate successful premiere of first wakeboard roller

Screen shot 2013-06-24 at 11.05.32 PM

Red Bull Rising High: Raph Derome, the Captain of Hamburg takes gold.

Hamburg, 24 June 2013 – 15 000 wakeboarding fans at the Magellan-Terraces in Hamburg and online via live stream all over the world witnessed Raph Derome (Canada) take the trophy on the UNIT Parktech wakeboard roller. Nico von Lerchenfeld (Germany) won the “Swatch Best Style Award”, voted live by the audience. 16 of the world’s best wakeboarders made for a fantastic event with tons of stylish action. The invited riders had spent a week in Hamburg to prepare for Red Bull Rising High, mostly training on “Big Willy”, as UNIT Parktech’s innovative combination of XXL kicker and landing was lovingly christened. Pulled by the SESITEC System 2.0, the setup was kept at a secret location, where the riders could test it and watch the others from their yacht, where they stayed all week. After the training sessions they enjoyed skate sessions and trips to the city.

Screen shot 2013-06-24 at 11.04.14 PM

Sunday afternoon, the Big Air showdown finally went down. Cable and setup, as well as a UNIT Street Series Rail, were ready at the Magellan Terraces, where the riders had completed their final training in the morning. Spectators started arriving in the early afternoon to get the best seats by the waterside. Eventually there were 15,000 spectators celebrating their idols, making for a fantastic atmosphere. “Mr. Wake voice” Clint Liddy and local Patrick Unger did their part to rock the event on their mics. Local hero and crowd favorite Frederic von Osten was not able to compete, due to a lingering injury, but he did enjoy being in the crowd.

The first round was all about style and the competitors had to impress head judge Flo Meeh and wakeboarding legend Parks Bonifay with Grabs and Shiftys in head-to-head mode. Inverts and Spins were allowed to be rotated no more than 360⁰, so everything was possible in each pair-up. Raph Derome (CAN), Adam Errington (USA), Steffen Vollert (GER), Dominik Hernler (AUT), Shane Bonifay (USA), Nico von Lerchenfeld (GER), and Brenton Priestley (AUS) made the cut in this round. For some big names like e.g. Jeremia Hoppe (SWE), Daniel Grant (THA), and a few other big names this was already the end of the line.

Screen shot 2013-06-24 at 11.06.50 PM

Round two was clearly more technical; full Spins and Flips were allowed now. Brenton Priestley (AUS) missed his Double Halfcab Roll and Steffen Vollert (GER) lost the handle on landing his 720, so they were out. Raph Derome pulled the first Heelside Frontside 900 and made the finals, along with Dominik Gührs (GER), Dominik Hernler (AUT) and Nico von Lerchenfeld (GER).

Now it was about taking the crown at the first Red Bull Rising High, so no prisoners were taken. Nico von Lerchenfeld (GER) landed his Heelside Backside 700, but missed the 900. Dominik Gührs (GER) pulled his 9 and got third, and Dominik Hernler (AUT) came in second with a super clean and grabbed Mobius.

It wasn’t easy for the judges, but eventuall Raph Derome deservedly added the Red Bull Rising High Boxing Belt to his trophy collection, since he was the only rider who had a Heelside Frontside 1080 safely on lock.

The “Swatch Best Style Award” went to Nico von Lerchenfeld (GER) for his sweet Indy Crowmobe, collecting the most clicks at the digital fan voting.

Raph Derome on his victory: “The contest was dope! The roller was a lot of fun, and it will surely give kicker riding a boost in the next couple of years. Winning Red Bull Rising High was the perfect ending for my week in Hamburg.”

Dominik Gührs, the best German at third place, was very excited after the event: “The level of performance was extremely high. We trained together all week, so we kind of knew what the other guys had in store, but everybody really pushed their limits today. For me personally, Red Bull Rising High was really cool and a season highlight.”

A new era of wakeboarding has dawned, and it will be thrilling to see the new tricks made possible by this obstacle. The crowd and the riders were stoked, and the event was rounded off nicely by summer temperatures in Hamburg Port City, a true wakeboarding mecca.

Results:

1. Raph Derome (CAN) – 89.75 points

2. Dominik Hernler (AUT) – 84.25 points

3. Dominik Gührs (GER) – 81 points

4. Nico von Lerchenfeld (GER) – 79.5 points

Dylan Mitchell

Dirty Habits: You spent most of last year traveling, competing and riding with the best wakeboarders in the world. Tell us about that and what it meant to you.

Dylan Mitchell: it was awesome, after finishing my Matric in 2011 my parents gave me the opportunity to take a Gap year to pursue Wakeboarding overseas, With the Support of my sponsors and friends I had made over the years overseas I was able to go traveling for almost the entire year. I started off the year at Shaun Faccio’s place in Johannesburg at the Vaal river where we got some serious shred time in behind his Tige to get fit for the season overseas. After that I headed across the pond to Orlando Florida, where I got to live with SA’s legend Dieter Humpsch and his fiancé for two months. It was awesome to stay with Dieter because I have always looked up to him as a rider and to get to ride with him every day was way to sick. After America I headed back across the pond to Europe where I spent the rest of my Gap year taking part in competitions and riding as much as I could. I started off in Germany and then went to go stay with the Kroon family in Holland for a bit, which was awesome. After that it was off to the UK for Wakestock and some more shredding, there I stayed with Charlotte Bryant and her family, which was awesome. Then I went to Spain to Train and coach at the most amazing place for riding in Europe, Xtreme Gene. I stayed there for 4 months, Got to meet and ride with lot of great people, and got to travel to quite a few events like the Europeans in the Ukraine and Chill and Ride in Germany. It was one of the sickest years of my life because I got to see so much and ride nearly every day and I am so thankful to everyone that was a part of it and allowed it to happen.

Dirty Habits: If anyone ever met you, they’d know that you are always full of monkey business and don’t take anything to seriously. How did you get so good with such a relaxed attitude? you don’t seem to have a competitive bone in your body?

Dylan: Haha! I don’t really know how to answer this, but I guess I started wakeboarding and got so addicted to it because it was fun and for me wakeboarding has always been about the fun aspect. Competitions aren’t the funnest things, but the best part about them is being able to see all your buddies and have a laugh with them, in my eyes the competition just gets everyone in one place to have a good time with one another. The competing part is short, so you just have to get it over with quickly and hope you ride well.

Dirty Habits: We see a lot less boat riding going on and a lot more cable parks and 2.0 systems opening, there over over 150 in the world more than 60 in Germany alone. How does that effect the future of boat riding and wake boarding in general.

Dylan: This is so true, Germany is crazy about their cable parks and I guess that’s why you get to see so much talent busting through into the cable scene from their country. When I got there and I wanted to go ride a cable I went onto google maps to find the closest one and there were three parks within 30 minutes drive of where I was staying.. haha it was nuts! I think Cable Wakeboarding is great and even though I don’t consider myself a cable rider, I have just as much fun behind a cable with nice obstacles than I do behind the boat. I think the sport is growing so quickly and Cable has become just another discipline in it. Just like Superpipe and Park disciplines in snowboarding. I don’t think it’ll have much of an effect on boat riding, but more on the riders, pushing them to become more dynamic and push themselves in both disciplines equally.

Dirty Habits: How does that change things for someone like you (one of the best boat riders in the country)?

Dylan: It doesn’t change much for me, I have so much fun doing both although my cable riding still needs quite a lot of work

Dirty Habits: Why is South Africa so far behind with only 3 parks. and a hand full of good riders?

Dylan: I think the sport is still quite small and young in South Africa compared to the rest of the world, but hopefully that will change in the near future, Setting up full sized cable parks isn’t the cheapest thing either, so I think we’re going to have to wait it out and see, but I have been entering the lottery quite a bit lately . We also have quite a few grommies tearing their way through the ranks now especially on the cable side, so I’m sure that handful will become bucket loads soon!

Dirty Habits: If you could change anything about SA Wake boarding what would it be?

Dylan: maybe get some more grassroot competitions going to get more lighties involved, I think a lot of people are intimidated by entering the South African “pro tour” but in actual fact we all can’t wait to see more people in the sport whether your just slashing the wake and learning your first few ollies or busting massive tantrums, it’s all the same to us. So come be part of the fun!

Dirty Habits: Unfortunately you are going to be preoccupied with you engineering degree now. and the last of the event you were rushing from home between study breaks to throw down some sick runs, then racing off back to the books. and didn’t even make to it prize giving to collect your silverware. how do you see your career changing during your studies..

Dylan: It is very hard and this year has put quite a lot of strain on me so far in terms of balancing work and play. Especially when Shaun Faccio and myself headed over to the world cup in Australia earlier this year a week before my test week (it was not so fun when I got back), but if you graft hard enough during the week, you’ll always have the weekend to take part in a dirty habit and let’s not forget about those nice long University holidays!

Dirty Habits: Tell us about Varsity Wakeboarding… is it growing? do you think you could have a good impact on the students being such a big name in the sport. maybe even competing in the inter-varsity comps.

Dylan: We had the first inter-varsity Comp about a month ago and it was sick! Unfortunately I couldn’t ride because of a knee injury, but I got to judge and it was awesome to see the guys shred it up. Wakeboarding clubs are being set up at a bunch of universities now, but it’s still really young as well, so I’m sure we’ll see the guys ripping it up just like on the pro tour in the next few years which I am excited for.

After seeing Bruce Irons in a glowing barrel with flares strapped to his board, we’ve been dying to strap some onto a wakeboard. The only problem is at R250 a flare (that last 30 seconds) and a photographer sitting on a boat in pitch darkness, 200m away; the logistics become a night mare.

We headed to Blue Rock Cable Park with one of Cape Towns best Photographers, Bianca Asher and a Nice Budget from Liquid Force Cape Town and ofcourse some of the best cable riders in CT. Bianca Managed to get these amazing images in a very limited 1 hour window. We are all stoked with the outcome and the surreal experience.

Cape Town Cable wakeboarders: Craig Eygenberger, Gregor Reichmuth, Sky Keller, Graham Howes, Candice Bacon, Sean Bacon, Craig Howes, Hjalmar Larsen, Nick Cattelan,

After all it was a proper shot in the dark… literally

PALLETS – Wake video

So you thought you’d need a ton of cash to build mean kickers and rails… well, it turns out that you just need to be a Badass rider and smash some old stacked up wooden pallets… like a boss!
