Israeli pro, Guy Firer, has been staying in Florida and hanging out at The Boarding School for a while now. As a result of training with Mike Ferraro, he's picked up a lot of boat skills while also riding cable nearly every day...that is when he isn’t busy at Lake Ronix with their 2018 team and product shoot. Guy is a super nice dude and he's a fun time to be around or work/ride with.

WW: Tell us a little bit about your trip to America this year and your time at The Boarding School?
GF: This year I decided to fly to Orlando to practice at The Boarding School for TWG. I arrived in March and have been staying there for the past five months. It was my biggest experience of my life to see how the real wakeboarding work. I been riding at TBS and met a lot of people, Travis and Jimmy and Scoot, that also really help me progress. And I had a coach that always was pushing me to the top and never giving up on me, the legend Mike Ferraro. And I also have been riding at Lake Ronix with the best crew and had some real fun with all of the guys there and the way the hosting you. And I been riding at Odub and I really enjoy to ride with some of my friends and met some new riders and I was amazed to see people doing air tricks and still keeping them alive. Hopefully I'll come back ASAP and continue from the place I stopped.
GF: I want to thank The Boarding School, Travis, Jimmy, Scoot and a special thanks to Mike Ferraro. And to all my sponsors and the Wakeboarding Israeli Federation. And to my friend and, especially, thanks to my parents that are always by my side! And thank you Norbi for doing this thing!
