Coming into the game at the young age of fifteen years old with the now infamous Cassette team Danny literally evolved with the sport of wakeskating. He has been witness to many of the sports firsts and has himself been a large force in driving the sport in the right direction. Plagued with some serious injuries in the past few years Danny came back in 08 with something to prove. Nominated for Video Part Of The Year for his section in Push Process and winning Video Part of The Year for and Volume 7 videos have once again solidified him as one of the sports most stylish and technical riders.

Raised in the Florida Keys, Hampson is a true pirate straight out of a Jimmy Buffett ballad and he plans on continuing plundering the wakeskating game for years to come.
