Brenton Priestley Interview and Video

Filming, Free Riding, living the dream and maybe even a comp.  We catch up with BP. Watch the Video

Brenton Priestley is one of the "kinda" new generation leaving the shores of Aus for the dream of back to back summers and a ton of wake boarding in Orlando.  Following more in the footsteps of Chris Oshea, pushing style and free-riding over contests.
