Take a look at this video. This kid is 9 his name is Lane and he his killing it in Knoxville. I have watched him ride many times and he impresses me more and more. Take a look at it and let everyone know what you think.

Yeah, I don't want you to take offence but there are 9/10 year olds at OWC that really tear it up. Julian Cohens little brother and his friend, Jason Soven etc,etc.

Just trying to give a young kid props. I am sure there is plenty of kids out there that may be better but any kid that is young and doing any of this stuff is impressive and they will be the future of the sport so why dont we just compliment someone.

For a nine year old he is doing awesome. Hitting rails and kickers takes some courage. Keep it up kid!!!!

Yeah Jason, props to him. But you did ask what everyone thought................

Really tough to make it to the top as a guy. Just sooo many good wakeboarders.Harley Clifford is only 15 years old

the kid is good, but I think the reason people are not agreeing with you 100% is because you called him "the Future" in the topic title. Those kids are a dime a dozen these days. Hopefully he sticks with it and keeps progressing so we will be able to see more of him.

I agree with Jason but that kid is also very good. Even though he says the future in the title it doesn't mean the future of the sport or the future in contests. It just says "the future" its very open ended. Also Chris you have to remember that Julian's little brother Yonel has riden the cable for probaboly four years. Not to mention almost everyday. And Jason has been riding sense he was very young. All the kids being named have been riding much longer than the kid in the video. Also to mention if this kid rode in a contest he wouldn't even been riding against Harley. He would be in Jr.Boys. Jason isn't even in this division. This kid is great for his age. I wish I was that good at 9. Sick riding bro.

Thanks John I was just saying all the kids are the future of the sport. The more kids involved the longer wakeboarding will be around. Im like you I wish I was that good at 9. heck I didnt even start til I was 27.
