Harley Clifford

Wakeboard

Though just 19, Australian Harley Clifford is King … of wakeboarding. Two years running, in fact. In just a few short years, Harley has gone from amateur ripper to wakeboard superstar. He’s won everything there is to win; he’s nailed every trick that’s out there to nail – now it’s about challenging himself. What’s next? What’s possible? That boundary is constantly changing. One of his main goals? Growing the love for his sport. “I definitely feel that to make this sport blow up, we need one person to break out and be famous like Ryan Sheckler or Shaun White,” Harley said. “I’m trying to be that person.” ...

    It’s been a busy year for Danny Hampson. Heaps of traveling, tons of riding and filming, and a huge personal achievement: buying his first home. (Due to all the travel, he hasn’t been home to work on the place since he bought it in April.) All the long hours and hard work has paid off. The Floridian has had some big wins (Wake Games and Nationals) and he’s put together a new edit that has the entire industry talking (“Graceland”). Since he was passing through California, we took the opportunity to sit down and get some insight on everything that’s been going on in Hampson’s life.

And it’s more than she imagined: she spread the word to her fellow athletes and they bought in, a 10-episode web series followed, and now a full-length, all-women wakeboard film is a reality.

    Harley Clifford won King of Wake, but he’s also, as far as the contest scene, the king of wake. In 2012, the 19-year-old superstar of wakeboarding dominated the sport. World champion and trick of the year; pro tour champion and favorite of the fans in the readers’ poll. It was the year Harley had been aiming for ever since he turned pro in 2008. Early in 2013, he’s off to a similar tear, with three consecutive wins to start the season. The thought is already on everyone’s mind: how long can the winning streak go? We sat down with Clifford when he stopped by Oakley HQ during his annual wakeboard season migration from Australia to Florida and hit him with all the key questions.
