Michael was born and raised in Central Florida and is proud to call this beautiful place his home. Michael and his friends spend most weekdays on the lakes behind the boat riding and chasing their dreams of becoming professional wakeboarders. On the weekends they often head over to New Smyrna Beach either miles offshore fishing, kiteboarding, or finding waves to surf over at the inlet.

With over 8 years of experience in the boating industry and 3000 hours behind the helms of wakeboard boats, it’s safe to say he knows almost all the ins and outs of his favorite boat and the Florida waterways.

He has decided to chase his dreams and continue to pass on his passion for watersports and share his favorite weekend getaway spots with his company Coastal Wake.
