Cade Lybeck

I have been wake surfing since the age of six and began competing in 2022, earning an invitation to the 2022 Centurion World Championship in the amateur male skim division. In 2023 I was the top rider in my division for almost the entire season. I earned my invite to the 2023 World Championship where I placed second. In 2024 I will be competing in Semi-Pro male skim and am hoping to take home the victory at the World Championships. I love teaching people how to wakesurf and simply just getting people on the boat to enjoy the water and the sport.
