Tom Fooshee is one of the most respected wakeboarders in the sport. Not only is one of the top cable riders that is dominating the world rankings, but he is also very current in the boat scene, as he just signed with Axis. Tom is extremely punctual, on and off the water, and is always professional humble… Long story short, he is a great sports man. The first time I met Tom was when he came to judge the first UAE Wakeboard Nationals. I was blown away when I first saw him ride because I never seen anyone so aggressive on the water yet so smooth. After he came to the UAE, not only did he motivate the riders in the UAE he also pushed them to progress their riding in a safe and positive way. – Omeir Saeed
After spending the summer with Tom Fooshee. I have admired Tom from the beginning of my Wakeboarding career. He is one of the most humble people in the sport in my eyes, on and off the water, from learning a trick to meeting him for the first time in person. Tom is always throwing himself out there no matter wheather it’s being the first person on site at a competition or pushing, not only his riding, but every single rider around him; creating progressive riding for every wakeboarder that encounters Tom Fooshee. – Matty Hasler Read the rest of this entry »
