2022 WSWC MEN’S WAKE PARK RIDER OF THE YEAR – DARY ZNEBEL

Congratulations to pro wakeboarder, Elite National Team rider and 6 x Canadian Champion, Dary Znebel @daryznebel , Wake Canada’s Men’s Wake Park Rider Of The Year (2022)!

A stylish innovator in creative park and street riding, Dary has filmed some of the most acclaimed wake movie parts of recent years including in the Canadian @outhousewake Film Series and the ender in @spacemob.tv’s iconic “The Coalition – The Movie – The Trilogy”. In 2022 Dary held down the feature part in the “Coalition 9” short film.

On the 2022 competition scene, Dary won the Best Overall Male Rider at the prestigious @valdostawakecompound “VWC Yardsale IV” international pro contest as voted by a consensus of the world’s best wake park riders competing there!

@obrienwatersports has recognized Dary’s achievements with the creation of the “DZ” pro model board, their wake park best seller in 2022!

While this award is for Wake Park Rider, it’s worth noting that Dary is that rare breed of wake athlete who is a triple threat across park, boat and wakeskate! He was the top Canadian and finalist at the 2022 Pan Am Wake Boat Championship in Brazil, winning Canada its “country spot” for the upcoming Pan Am Games Men’s Wakeboard (November 2023). Dary took 4th in Pro Wakeskate at the 2020 Wake Park Worlds.

Off the water Dary gives back to the sport as Wake Canada National Wakeboard Team Coach contributing countless volunteer hours. Dary also puts in time judging at the local, national and world level as one of Canada’s highest certified wake officials. In his spare time during the summer Dary runs his own private wake sports coaching program in Muskoka, Ontario. – Steve Jarrett
