Jamie Huser and Sky Berninghaus


Sky BerninghausI never know who I will meet when I roll up to O'Town watersports and hang out with owner Glen Fletcher. This past week I had the pleasure of getting to know and film with two up-and-coming European boat riders, Jamie Huser and Sky Berninghaus. Both of them are easy to get along with and have some serious lines up their sleeves. With both of them going to school in Orlando, they're now able to stay on the water longer and train/compete harder than ever before. There are many huge names that have been taken under Glen’s wing. It makes you wonder if these guys are next in the line of champions perfected at O'Town Watersports. Check it out!
