RIP Will Green
 
I didnt know Will Green (#3 Colligate wakeboarder per wakeworld.com), but I have seen him ride and the kids had crazy talent. I hate to hear of the passing of any young person let alone doing the sport we all love. Very Sad news, the outpouring on social media for him shows just how good of person he was. Very sad, my heart goes out to his family and friends.

I saw that. Terrible.

It sounds like the accident happened while Wakeboarding, but there isn't much detail.

Does anyone know what happened?

Wow RIP way too young.

All I have heard is that he was riding doubles in a demo when it happened. I believe it was a head injury.

Yea bobs Instagram says fatal head injury while riding doubles. Awful, I also feel terrible for whoever he was out there with. That has to be a complete nightmare.

They were doing a backroll and a railey at the same time? I'm trying t imagine how that would ever work out. Man....what a grim scene in the boat for the kids.

It was done in an exhibition at the Masters, there may be video

King12 06-29-2015 9:56 AM

Hope that it never gets out if it exists

jarrod 06-29-2015 10:02 AM

I think he means there is video of the success, not the accident.....I think. I saw mention that the stunt had been done prior.

behindtheboat 06-29-2015 10:07 AM

Yes, it was done by other long time professionals at the Masters successfully.

King12 06-29-2015 12:53 PM

Ah of course makes much more sense

andy_nintzel 07-01-2015 1:05 PM

I feel horrible for the guy who he was riding with.
