Hunter Henderson: Malibu Junior Team Rider


Ten-year-old Hunter Henderson has been making a huge impact on the Junior Boys Tour, highlighted by his first place finish at the 2012 WWA Nationals. This Tega Cay, South Carolina ripper is the current INT State Champion and loves to ride at home behind his WAKESETTER 247 LSV. Hunter also spends a lot of time in Orlando riding and improving his skills with fellow team riders Cobe and Tarah Mikacich at Freedom Wake Park.
Hunter brings a lifetime of experience on the water and will be shredding for many years to come. When he was six weeks old, he started experiencing the life of boating and being on the water. At age two, he was skiing on trainer skis and at age three, he started wakeboarding behind a PWC. These days, Hunter has also taken to wakesurfing and is totally psyched on Malibu’s new SURF GATE innovation. Off the water, you will find him skateboarding, riding his four-wheeler or practicing mixed martial arts.
