If you've been following our social accounts, you may know we had an exciting week. We welcomed pro shredder Kaesen Suyderhoud. Kaesen and our crew go way back to the good ol' days of the Wakeboard Camp in Clermont. He arrived in the summer of 2007 and made an immediate impression on everyone on Lake Minneola.
"I was living in Florida for the first time working at the camp. I still remember when Kyle Schmidt rolled up one day with a crazy looking prototype of the first board shape, I think it was called the Oracle. It looked pretty different, but fun, so I was intrigued. I guinea pigged the first few runs of the proto. Time flies! I'm excited to be a part of such a small, motivated team of friends that I've known for such a long time. It's been cool to watch their journey unfold and now become a part of it."
Kaesen has a long list of film and photo accolades in wakeboarding. Watching him ride with a silky smooth style that naturally translates from snow to water keeps us hyped and never gets old. He's put the time in to showcase his creative vision of wakeboarding wherever he rides. Kaesen keeps a lighthearted, funny and positive vibe. He fits in with our team well. He's built a solid following by staying true and discovering NBD riding spots...then crushing it with friends. We are excited for what's in store.
Instead of releasing a 'run of the mill' announcement, we collaborated with Kaesen to bring you the top 10 best lines on his Unit Parktech's Signature Series feature. If you like this, please share. There's more content to come from Kaesen in the coming weeks!
