Cody "triple flip" Hesse is a man that barely needs an introduction, but we're going to give it to you anyway. In addition to his hammers and cool rail hits, Cody is also a super funny and laid back dude. However, when he needs to, he can get professional and is usually super fun to work with. Cody's been riding the Byerly Felix and next year it's going to have his name on it! Also keep an eye out for his pro model Follow handle in the intro of the video below. Get to know him a little bit with our mini-interview.
Video Easter egg: Cody was born in the same year as the title of the song in the video.
Editor's note: Despite what you see in the video below,
you should always wear a Coast Guard Approved life vest
when wakeboarding and always wear a helmet when hitting obstacles.
