It’s ok if you give it your all and fall flat on your face, what matters is that you get up and try again every time you fall. You are what you do, not what you say you will do.

Cory “Todd” Watson, 24, Professional Wakeboarder,  Orlando, FL.

How do you celebrate the difference?

To me wakeboarding is a form of art. I get to go out there everyday and express my difference to the world by riding my wakeboard. I’m very blessed.

How did you first get into wake boarding?

My family were all skiers & boaters. When I was 12 my uncle showed me this “wakeboard” that he got. I took it out to the lake with us the next time we went and gave it a spin.

What was going through your head the very first time you successfully stood up on a wakeboard?

I was automatically hooked. I actually got up first try. I remember making the driver drive for what felt like miles cause I wouldn’t let go.

Was it always a dream of yours to travel and compete in wakeboarding competitions?

I love to be able to travel and meeting new people. But to be completely honest I’ve only competed like 3 times in the past 4 years. I focus all my time on filming for videos, shooting for the magazines, and just wakeboarding. Keeping the freeriding aspect alive. Like I said, I see wakeboarding as an art. I’m never going to go out there and focus on learning a bunch of gymnastic looking tricks to give you a high score in contests. If I don’t like the way something looks, I’m not going to do it. I’m gonna go out there, and be me. If I have to take a big pay cut because of it, that’s fine with me.

What’s the craziest thing to happen to you while wake boarding?

Probably hitting the big air for the first time. It’s just like a big slope style snowboard jump, or the mega ramp on a skateboard. There’s a big kicker ramp and landing ramp, with about a 50ft land gap in between them. If you don’t make the gap you’re in trouble.

Where is your favorite place to wakeboard?

“Lake Ronix.” My board sponsor Ronix just bought a massive lake 2 years ago here in Orlando. Just about every rider on the team lives here in Orlando. We all meet up at the lake everyday, build new rails/features, test gear, film and ride our asses off. All my pictures you see are from “Lake Ronix.”

How has the sport changed since you first started doing to?

Everything was done behind the boat when I first started. There were hardly any rails or anything of that sort. The sport has evolved insanely since then. There are now cable parks popping up all over. You no longer need a expensive boat to be able to wakeboard. Lower/middle class kids actually have a chance to make it now too.

What has been one of your proudest wakeboarding moments thus far?

Probably my first magazine shot, and the story behind it. I was 20 I think. My board sponsor at the time “Gator” paid for me to go on a winch trip to Lincoln, Nebraska. First day there I split my head open falling in 3″ deep water, and was bleeding badly. I spent a day in the hospital and was bed rested for the rest of the trip. Right before we had to fly back, still hurt, I got my board out and wall rid this sketchy brick wall, right in the middle of Downtown Lincoln. I didn’t want to let my sponsor down and come back with nothing. I had one try before security came and grabbed us. I nailed it first try, got the photo, grabbed all our stuff and busted out of there. 2 months later I was flipping through a magazine and there I was right in the middle of the mag, double page spread from that day.

When you’re not wakeboarding, what do you do in your free time?

I grew up skateboarding. So I still skate when I can. I also do cinematography. I spend a lot of my downtime filming and editing. That’s my plan for my future when I get to old for wakeboarding.

What are three things people might not know about you?

1. I can’t surf

2. My dad’s been married 6 times

3. I was born in California, and raised in Missouri.

What’s next for you? Any upcoming competitions, trips or projects?

Starting in January we start filming for the Ronix team video. We will probably be filming for a couple years. It’s crazy I’ll be in the same video as all the dudes I grew up idolizing and watching in videos.

5 Minutes to Rock Hard Abs

10608097 930956883587307 1527391240 n 5 Minutes to Rock Hard Abs

Hitting the gym after a grueling work day may seem like an impossible feat. That is why we relish in every opportunity to find quick, easy yet effective workouts that get the job done without adding more stress to your day.

Check out our 3 favorite ab workouts below that will quickly get you rock-hard abs like Regime Girl Tianna G.

 A little sweat never hurt nobody, so suck it for just a few minutes every day and you will see the results of a body well earned!

1. Side Plank –  This abs exercise is more challenging yet hits your core hard because you must stabilize all of your body weight.

How to do it:
A. Lie on your left side with your elbow directly beneath your shoulder and legs stacked. Place your right hand on your left shoulder or on your right hip.

B. Brace your abs and lift your hips off the floor until you’re balancing on your forearm and feet so that your body forms a diagonal line. Hold for 30 to 45 seconds. If you can’t hold that long, stay up as long as you can and then repeat until you’ve held for 30 seconds total. Switch sides and repeat.

 

2. Walkout from Pushup Position – This abs exercise involves the entire body and provides resistance for your whole core.

How to do it:
A. Start in pushup position with hands two inches wider than your shoulders.

B. Walk hands out as far as possible, then walk back. Do 10-12 reps.

 

3.  Alligator Drag – exercise uses your entire core and burns additional calories by adding movement (dragging yourself along the floor).

How to do it:
A. Find a stretch of floor that allows you to go forward 10 to 20 yards, and grab anything that will slide over the surface with minimal friction. Dinner plates or plastic bags work on a carpeted floor, while towels work on wood or tile.

B. Start in pushup position with your feet on the slides, towels, or plates.

C. Walk yourself forward with your hands to the end of your runway (aim for at least 10 yards). Rest for 60 to 90 seconds (or as long as you need to recover) and repeat the alligator walk back to where you started. That’s one set. Repeat one more time.
