WHO SHOULD BE THE UNION ROTY 2015?
“It’s so difficult to pick one rider this season.  I think 2015 was a game changer with so many platforms to show your riding.” Daniel Grant

Grant might have just had his best year yet. His XGames Realwake part was out of control with massive kicker hits and gnarly tricks at heavy winch spots in Texas – his backside 3 into a spillway is one of the highlights of the year. Along with all this, Daniel featured in the new LF n’ Awesome and his own documentary – WakeTao. What didn’t Grant do in 2015?

Best 2015 trip you went on and why?
Would have to be Bali at the start of the year.  Rip curl made the trip amazing and I was with all my buddies. In the end got great footage too at Thai wake park and some amazing winch spots.  I am going back there at the start of the year.

Favorite trick you landed on film for the year?
Would have to be tantrum to blind into the wall, with Collin Harrington.

What would you say was your best video part of the year?
I think I would have to say Tao. I am happy with all edits from this season but Tao because it was the riding sections that I wanted.

Who do you think should be the 2015 rider of the year and why?
It’s so difficult to pick one rider this season.  I think 2015 was a game changer with so many platforms to show your riding.   So many rad edits, then x-games and many top riders pulled out of competition riding.  For me its pretty much impossible to pick one.

Do you have many plans for 2016?
I have plans but don’t know what they are.  I want less filming but also reduce comps. The idea is coming soon but not sure what it is!
