Student Scholarship Stories

Caoimhes Story

Caoimhe was a regular at the park during the summer. Coming down two or three times a week so was well used to the site ever before coming onto the scholarship. Were excited to see how far she can come during the course. Here's a little bit about her.

Name: Caoimhe Collins

Age:
15

School:
Colaiste Treasa

Where are you from:
Kilbrin

One sentence my friends may use to describe me:
My friends describe me as adventurous and crazy

The most adventurous thing I've ever done:
Skydiving

Tell us a little bit about being on the scholarship: 
I love being on the scholarship and even after only three weeks I've learned loads. Today we learnt about the history of cable wakeboaring and I started learning how to do presses on the box. Learning wakeboarding is both hard and easy. I think the hardest part is when I'm learning something new like the surface 360 and I have so many painful faceplants and then I come out of the water and my muscles are so sore! The best part is when I finally get a new trick after tons of practice and it feels brilliant! I'm most excited about trying to get presses on the box next and trying to pop off the kicker. It's so cold right now but I don't find it too hard because of the hot water bottles which make it a lot easier. I would recommend someone to pick up wakeboarding at this time of year because I think they would get used to the water a lot faster.
