Jono_Head-Shot Jono Boysen – Jono has had a love for watersports from the tender age of five and never looked back. He started off waterskiing, but like many kids from his generation, gave wakeboarding a try and fell in love. With a keen interest in the newest innovations for the sport, he then quickly acquired a taste for wakeskating and cable riding, which is where his focus has been for a number of years. Jono has won the Canadian National Championships for Wakeskating, qualified for Toe Jam, and competed in the pro division of Wakestock. More recently, he has hung up his competition “shoes” to focus on coaching, judging and volunteering behind the scenes. His main commitments lie in grassroots contests, National Championships and the overall development of cable riding across Canada. He also holds a Level 2 National Coaching certification for wakeboard and wakeskating in Canada. Jono is the brainchild behind “The Ranch Wake Park”, which, in its short existence, has developed a reputation for being one of the best straight-line cable facilities in the country.  His favourite music is comprised of one-hit-wonders you’ve never heard of and he is rarely seen without his sunnies on.
