Sam has been a professional rider for many years now. He has not only been pushing his own boundaries but also helping others reach their goals from the get-go. Not only has he been UK National Champ multiple times, European Champ, and Top 5 on the World Cup. He also has represented the Team GB as a team captain five times. Sam has always taken tremendous joy passing on his knowledge and will be joining COW in spring 2017.
Stew started out riding in the early 90s and turned his passion to own a business that has been built up to now - the UK’s Premier Wakeboard & Water-ski Centre. This has formed the platform for his professional coaching status and reputation as the pioneer for the sport in the UK. As a competitor and three times National Wakeboard Champion, this led to being Captain and Coach of the British Wakeboard Team which holds the status to date of the most successful in Europe. Now, he is based at Chain of Wakes Wakeboard School in Winter Haven, Florida. He loves traveling during the summer for personal clinics or back to his favorite spot in England or around Europe.

I learned more in 5 days of lessons with Sam than I did in the last 3 seasons wakeboarding every other weekend for 3 months. We had a small group of me, Sam, and another wakeboarder from Colorado - so my experience may differ from a larger group. However, what wouldn't change is Sam's excellent coaching skills, his patience, and his all-around great personality. The whole experience was amazing from morning to night. Each subsequent lesson I felt I gained more and more confidence and understanding on the wakeboard. He also helped me pick out and purchase a new wakeboard that matched my skill. I would recommend this camp to anyone looking to up their game.
