ExPix Athlete Profiles - The ‘Who’s Who’ for the Extreme Sports World

From Groms to World Champions, Amateurs to Pros; Extreme and Action Sports Riders or Athletes, whatever you want to call them, are the people that drive the extreme and action sports world. They’re dedicated to the cause; crazy enough to take the risks, willing put their body on the line and always ready to go that extra mile to take their sport to the very limits.

This section is in honour of those riders and the inspiration they give to us mere mortals!

Megzy-Barker

Megan 'Megzy' Barker burst onto the wakeboarding competition scene two years ago with a win at the Wakestock Big Air. From that moment on all eyes were on her! Coming from 'nowhere' to win such an event made people sit up and take notice and she was soon dealing with sponsorship offers.

Moving down to London to work alongside LDB Wake School, her riding has matured under the guidance of Lee Debuse (LDB).

This year 2013 she is still the same crazy, zaney Megzy we all know and love BUT she took the National Boat Title, Wakestock Boat Champion and topped of her hatrick by claiming the womens European Boat Champion.

ExPix and everyone else will be keeping an eye on this pocket rocket from Yorkshire for teh foreseeable future.
