Flawless Wakes Welcomes Andrew to the Flawless Family.

Andrew is a CWSIC Certified Coach through NCCP, and has been coaching WAKE BOARDING, WAKE SURFING, and WAKE SKATING for quite a few years now. He loves working with people of any age to discover towed water sports for the first time. Whether behind the boat or on the cable, his favourite part about coaching is seeing the joy on riders’ faces when they stand up for the first time, or land that first jump, which inspires them to continue learning.

Andrew has been WAKE BOARDING for more than 16 years while growing up on the beautiful lakes of Muskoka, learning to ride along side the pros. Now 30 years old, getting out to ride as often as he can, is still a drive he seeks daily. While andrew enjoys water sports mostly for fun and to share his passion for WAKE BOARDING with others, Andrew has stayed involved with the Ontario Wake scene and Wake Canada. In 2016, Andrew decided to pursue the competitive side of WAKE BOARDING by entering into Cable Wakeboard (wake park) events at the Provincial Level.
