HK Magazine: What’s your training regime like? Chris Stevens: I aim to get wet everyday if possible. My boat is just below my flat in Lantau and if I am not driving for customers, I am always riding with friends. If the weather is crappy then I get a day off, but other than that you’ll find me in the water. HK: What’s the best competition you have been in? CS: Last summer, I came third in the intermediate division riding for Island Wake and Wakeaholics, which I felt majorly stoked about because I hadn’t really competed before. HK: Tell us about your worst sporting-related accident. CS: About a year ago I dislocated my shoulder in Tai Tam pulling a mad trick I had been practicing all summer. It hurt a lot and I had to be pulled out of the water and rushed to the hospital, but it was all good a few months later. HK: What’s your ultimate goal? CS: It would be nice to be good enough to get sponsored and famous so I can pull girls easily, get free drinks and have people bow at my feet and praise me. HK: What are the greatest perks of being a wake boarder? CS: Getting wet, being outside, pulling off the most impossible trick and landing it after months of practice – there is nothing perky-er! HK: Why is it such a great sport? CS: Well for me, it’s because I love the outdoors, swimming, X Games, beach-life, girls in bikinis and doing something active that really gives you a rush.
