I am sitting here at the hospital in the waiting room while Nick Jones is still in surgery. Nick has been plagued by an injury that occurred in Januray. However, it did not stop him from having another great season. He finished in the top 20 of the Pro Wakeboard Tour, appeared in the industry magazines, attended the CWB team photoshoot, and even had time to film a few sections for next years wake flicks. Nick Jones is truly one of the best Northwest grown riders.

He is having surgery today to repair a Liz Frank Fracture (a tear of the ligament between the first and second metatarsal) in his foot which was slowly pulling the two bones apart. Nick is determined to start riding again in January after therapy is complete. We wish Nick all the best during his recovery. Please keep Nick and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Stay tuned for further updates post his surgery.
