Graeme Burress LandLOCKED, …..12 Months of Wakeboarding
Graeme Burress LandLOCKED …
While INSIGHT was receiving accolades and honors at the end of 2019 Graeme Burress was in a Philippines hospital looking at a rough x-ray.
He broke his arm which required multiple surgeries and almost six months of recovery. It’s a tough way to begin any season but Graeme has battled through tougher circumstances.
During his downtime he focused on developing his new pro model shape, the Blacklist, and mapping out everywhere he wanted to ride in 2020. Then Covid hit and flipped the switch yet again.
Graeme has been residing in Austin, TX, close to fellow Hyperlite team rider, JB O’Neill and the two of them hatched this idea to just load up the Prius and drive to every park they could.
Luckily for the two of them, master drone pilot and content creator Dave Averillo, or Dave AV, was stuck in Orlando with nothing to do. They found him a $23 airfare so they could all meet at The Levee Wake Park outside Dallas where they’d spend a couple weeks filming as Graeme was finally able to jump back on his board. From there the crew moved from wake park to wake park, winching along the way and capturing everything they could for Graeme’s LandLOCKED edit.
This edit is a continuation of where Graeme left off after INSIGHT, full of hammers, first-ever and gnarly stunts. 2020 was an unexpected season for us all, but according to Graeme, maybe being landlocked isn’t that bad and maybe it was just what he needed so he could focus on his wake boarding while visiting 13 parks throughout the US.
