people know Greg as the founder of DoubleUp Wakeboards, the first
rider owned and operated wakeboard company. Greg has logged a lot
of wakeboarding hours since the sport began, and has traveled to
all parts of the world on The DoubleUp Experience and countless
other Wakeboard adventures whether promoting, filming, coaching
or just having fun.
You may not see “Nelly” in the latest videos, but take
a look at classic films like Spray, Hit It and MayDay to see some
of the most stylish riding captured on film. Greg’s influence
in the sport has only grown recently and he was honored to be included
in Alliance’s “8 Most Influential Wakeboarders Ever”
article and to be the profile athlete in The Standerd ‘s Wake
Quarterly edition 1.3.
Although he’s spent less time behind the boat in the past
few years, his passion for wakeboarding hasn’t dwindled. Currently,
Nelson designs boards and other related products for Hyperlite Wakeboards
including this year’s Shaun Murray pro model, the Tribute
and Syn models and the new and exciting Wake Skis from HO.
