Shawn Watson Texas Tanker Boys

Foiling Tanker Waves for Miles

Back in February a few of the biggest names in wake got together for an entirely new type of mission. Their radical idea: follow huge cargo ships and ride these seemingly “endless” waves on their foils.

Shawn Watson, Nick Taylor, Brian Grubb, Erik Ruck, Parks Bonifay and Bryan “Golden Bear” Soderlind all joined up for this big adventure. The squad left from Orlando and embarked on the 1,000 mile trip to a busy shipping channel in southern Texas. Utilizing two jet skis and the guidance of a couple local maritime pilots, the boys found what they came looking for!
