Name: Drew Austin
Position at the Ranch: Manager, head coach, and athlete developer
Coaching experience: Level 2 WSWC certified, 2nd year at the Ranch, former Basecamp instructor.
Bio: Drew got his start out on the water at the age of 10 when his father brought home a kneeboard. After perfecting the surface 1440 on the kneeboard, Drew wanted more, and decided to try out wakeboarding. The first time up on the water, he knew that that was where his heart laid, and never looked back. Since then Drew quickly began learning all kinds of flips and spins behind the boat, and began competing in provincial competitions where he made the podium in many events. Drew began travelling down to Florida every winter to ride the cable parks with friends. As soon as the Ranch Wakepark opened up, he began working there and riding the cable everyday, and is still today continuing on the path of being a competitive cable rider.
Name: Braden ioi
Position at the Ranch: Head wakeskate coach, videographer, cable driver, grounds keeper
Coaching experience: Level 1 WSWB certified
Bio: Being a summer baby, Braden naturally loves to be in the water. His childhood summers were filled with swimming, playing on the beach and going on boat rides. The idea of wakeboarding was first brought to Braden’s attention when his older brothers brought a ‘ski-tech’ wakeboard up to the cottage. His grandfathers bow rider now had more meaning than tubing and fishing. Quickly he fell in love with the lifestyle and challenge the sport brought. The only set back was that his boat hardly had a wake decent enough for the wakeboard tricks, so he combined his love for skateboarding with wakeboarding. Fast forward to today, Braden is a competitive Cable wakeskater taking two first place finishes in his rookie season last summer. He continues to try to push his limits and bring the skateboarding style to the water.
