Austin Tovey is our newest member to the AWS Team! He has been riding for 5 years now but has really "blown up" this last year. He usually rides on the Intracoastal water way near Beach Blvd. in Jax. His background was Kite Boarding so the transition to wakeboarding was a natural fit! We can't wait to see how well he does in 2013! Last year in his 1st tournament he came in 1st in the Intermediate division. Austin goes to Fletcher High School and his favorite wakeboard tricks are scarecows and 540's. Yea we are excited to see what he can do in Advanced this year!
Welcome aboard, Austin!
