JD Webb. Starting his career at the young age of 9, the now veteran JD has been influencing the sport of wakeboarding for over 19 years. JD rides for Team Nautique and Hyperlite . From “Behind the Boat” to “Cable Park” to “Big Air” double-ups, no other rider combines the artistic style and technical aspects quite like JD. 2015 proved to be one of his best years ever, including a HUGE win at BroStock at Lake of the Ozarks that helped propel him to a Top 5 finish in the WWA Wakeboard World Series Rankings. Combine that with his two “Rail Rider of the Year” awards and a host of award-winning wake videos and you can see why JD is so highly respected in the wakeboarding industry today.

Don’t let the calm, carefree persona fool you… JD is passionate about all aspects of wakeboarding, and is often fueled by what some people might think he can’t do. He admits that he has built motivation from proving doubters wrong, driving him outside of his comfort zone to do even better, bigger, and more epic tricks. That trait of personal commitment, hard work, perseverance, and sacrifice needed to achieve your goals came from his Dad, a top notch surfer and skater as well.

After spending some time with JD you come to understand it’s not about the competition, world traveling, and the podiums. He has truly grown up with wakeboarding - he has influenced new board designs, grown through the emergence of cable parks, and launched off the Big Air events, and now is pushing the limits of Nautique’s latest boat designs and innovations. JD is passionate about giving back to the sport, spreading the word, and growing the sport as an ambassador for “all things wake”.

Come by Russell Marine’s booth #114 and meet the future of wakeboarding style and creativity!
