2022 WSWC GROM BOYS WAKE BOAT RIDER OF THE YEAR – MARIN WEMPE MONZ

Congratulations to Saskatchewan’s Marin Wempe Monz @marinwempemonz, Wake Canada’s Grom Boy’s Wakeboard Boat Rider Of The Year (2022)!

Marin grabbed the Grom Boys 10-13 title at the 2022 Wakeboard Boat Nationals in Abbotsford, BC.

Riding out of the Kipabiskau Lake Wakeboard Club, Marin has had the opportunity to wakeboard with and receive coaching from several famed Saskatchewan-bred champions including @rustymalinoski@dylanmiller@ashleyleugner@taylor_fiesel@connormacneill@kade.vipond, as well as his own dad, Troy Monz, one of the province’s first pro wakeboarders!

Marin’s “Kip Crew” of up-and-coming contemporaries include his younger brother Mason, along with Jacob Clunie, Jonas Markwart and Graden Jackson.

This summer Marin is working on mastering the rest of the basic flips and dialing-in his 360s in prep for the Sask Provincials and a return to the Nationals in BC. In addition to Rusty Malinoski and Dylan Miller, Marin looks to @massipiffa@guentheroka and @sam.c.brown for inspiration to achieve his long term goal of being a pro rider in his own right!

When he’s not sneaking in some winter wakeboard training south of the border, Marin enjoys snowboarding and snowmobiling while also finding time to play elite hockey as a defenceman. He also loves to play football (linebacker).
