Harley Clifford

Wakeboard

Though just 20, Australian Harley Clifford is the king … of wakeboarding. Two years running, in fact. In just a few short years, Harley has gone from amateur ripper to wakeboard superstar. He’s won everything there is to win; he’s nailed every trick that’s out there to nail – now it’s about challenging himself. What’s next? What’s possible? That boundary is constantly changing. One of his main goals? Growing the love for his sport. “I definitely feel that to make this sport blow up, we need one person to break out and be famous like Ryan Sheckler or Shaun White,” Harley said. “I’m trying to be that person.”<...

That conversation was the genesis of “Sets In Motion,” a new, game-changing women’s wakeboard series. “Women in wakeboarding don’t get asked to film or aren’t included in any filming projects, and there’s maybe 3 or 4 guys ones every year, so I wanted to create a platform and a project for the girls that’s going to be timeless and online and for everyone to see forever,” explained Amber Wing, the reigning Queen of Wake who in January became the first female to land a double flip. “It gives the girls something to work towards, and not just be riding for contests, because its different riding for contests than free-riding.
