Australia’s #1 Wakeboarding Industry Expert

Kristin is also a highly sort after Wakeboard Industry TV Presenter, Commentator and Consultant.

Ever since Kristin stood on a skateboard at the age of 12, his life has been directed towards the sideways style of living.

Growing up spending every waking minute learning how to snowboard, skate, surf and wakeboard.  If he couldn’t do it while awake he’d dream about it at night.

The time in which Kristin came into these lifestyle sports was a time of uncertainty for both the sport and the sponsors surrounding it. However for people like Kristin these ‘sports’ are not just ‘sports’. They are a way of life, a lifestyle that has freedom of expression, passion and it literally requires blood sweat and tears to make it to the top.

It is this type of drive and determination to make board sports not just a hobby but a way of life, is the type of resource Kristin Bower still taps into today as Australia’s #1 Wakeboarding Industry Expert.

These sports are here to stay and Kristin’s industry knowledge and networking skills allows him to give back to an industry that has given him the freedom he wishes to share with others. To those close to him he is know as simply ‘Bower’.

Wake Life TV Commentator, Kristin Bower, South Australia


Over the years as a professional wakeboard rider Kristin Bower developed relationships with companies who actively help him achieve his dreams and goals through life on and off a board.

Sponsorship is a huge deal and should be treated with the utmost respect. Kristin believes when a company relates to the individual athlete by sponsoring them, the athlete should return the respect and believe in the company the athlete promotes.

Kristin attributes his characteristics and background to his mother and father who raised him to treat every one equally and with the respect you would want to be treated with yourself.  Loyalty is important to him both personally and professionally.

Kristin has found it far better to maintain a firm grasp of what you set out to achieve and stick with those who help you rather then jump from ship to ship. This has earned him huge respect in the industry as Kristin was sponsored for over 11 years with one of the biggest surf labels in the world – Rusty clothing company.

Now as he branches out into building his own Wakeboarding / Surfboard Indy Wakeboards, his long term relationships in the industry are invaluable.


As a regular contributing columnist to “Modern Boating” magazine published by FCP.(FCP also publishers of Vogue and GQ and have an extremely high readership base).

Kristin’s role was to enlighten those readers of “Modern Boating” about the water sports world contributing may stories ranging from where to wakeboard, the toys involved to general safety tips on and around the water.

Wake Magazine

3 years as editor of Australia’s leading “Wake” Magazine brought Kristin into contact with the wakeboarding industry key players and provided him with the platform to promote the industry and values he wanted to bring to the sport.


More recently Kristin gained even more notoriety for his creativity by proposing to his partner Cerise in a published article about his just released revolutionary “Switchfoot” Indy Surfboard


As the wakeboarding industry expands and grows in popularity the demand for cable parks and wakeboarding venues grows.
