Perception is all in the eye of the beholder. People see what they want to see based on what they know… or what they think they know.

And like anything, people have different perceptions of Raph Derome. As a guy that prefers to keep a low profile and living the life of an self-described introvert, it’s sometimes difficult to express who he really is to those around him. But that’s why he lets his wakeboarding speak for him.

With an endless drive and dedication to wake boarding, Raph is truly in it for the love of the game. Never quite satisfied, wakeboarding to him is about the constant pursuit of progression and evolving his own unique vision of the sport.

Two years in the making, Raph’s latest video project is the product of a tireless effort to capture the soul of wakeboarding and a visual declaration to the masses that there is much more to wakeboarding beyond contests. Presented by Red Bull Media House, in partnership with Billabong and Malibu Boats, the journey takes Raph on a trip to some of his favorite spots including Florida, his home province of Quebec and a big-city shred at Toronto’s Ontario Place.
