It’s the same thing over and over again.
We all get Bryan real hyped up and tell him that he can do it. Butcher says some shit like “you ready to shred this wake? You ready to nail this back flip?”
Bryan then shrugs it off, simply out of frustration from trying it so many times.
Then everyone heads out. Sacks does a couple of practice runs across the wake. He builds his speed. He gets in the zone. He launches himself around and BOOM.
He lands flat on his face.
You wouldn’t think that landing in water would be so painful, but believe me it, it is. Especially considering this is Sacks we’re talking about, and he’s exceptionally dramatic about the whole thing.
To his credit. Sacks has attempted to do at least a few hundreds back flips. Over and over again, he tries and he fails. But he keeps on trying.
Earlier today, I get a frantic barrage of text messages from Sacks. I’m thinking that somehow they convinced David to try wakeboarding again and they all filmed him getting dragged behind the boat.
To my surprise, and my elation, this is what I found.
Congrats Sacks. You’re the man. I can’t even tell you how proud I am for you.
To everyone else, don’t ever give up.
