AustinWakesurf.com Coach: Dave West

Dave West

Dave's been surfing the beautiful beaches of Sydney Australia since he was old enough to walk. Dave moved to Austin in 2011 with his wife and has once again found his place on the wave with Austin Wakesurf. His passion for surfing and easy going attitude reflects in his positive wakesurf coaching, and you can see how he really enjoys helping people experience the thrill of riding a wave.

AustinWakesurf.com Coach: Scott Rigtrup

Scottie Rigtrup

Scottie was raised on the water - he has an extensive water sports background, most particularly with slalom skiing competition courses. But it was snow skiing that brought his first opportunity as a professional instructor, starting right out of high school & throughout college.

Now Wakesurfing has redefined Scottie's water sports passion! "There's nothing more exciting or rewarding than helping beginner students feel that first push of the wave or seeing that "ah hah!" look on an experienced surfers face when they break through to the next level! I love being a part of a whole new world opening up to them!"
