ON THE COVER

ROBERT “BOB” SICHEL

Controlled Chaos. Cross the great minds of The Wakeboard Camp with the raw power of the old school WSR and what do you get? Bob Sichel. Bob has been silently killing it for some years now on The Wakeboard Camp’s home of Lake Minneola in Clermont Florida. And I mean that in the most literal sense. Fortunately for Bob, his soft spoken mannerisms off the water are hushed all the more when he rails into the wake. Bob combines Randy Harris-esque Front Mobes to the flats, with the finesse only learned from riding day in and day out with the likes of Kyle Schmidt and Benny G. And, he does it all without saying a word about it. I have never met anyone Bob’s age, with Bob’s talent, that talked less about his

riding. Yet it seems those who have witnessed it cannot shut up about it.  

Introduction by Aaron Reed
