Bio

Shota Tezuka started wakeboarding in the second grade and quickly developed his skills to show huge potential. Like a lot of young wakeboarders, he honed his skills while he was still in education, winning the JWBA Kanto Junior Boys class at the All Japan Championship.

In 2005, at just 12, Shota turned pro and the first-ever elementary school wakeboarder in Japan was born.

Once he turned pro, there was no stopping this hot young talent. He went on to leave his mark on the local competition scene and gradually made his way up to the top of the wakeboarding class internationally.

2010 proved to be quite a year for Shota. He became King of the Asian Pro Wake Tour when he became the champion of the Asian Pro Tour. He then set his sights on the WWA Master Craft Pro Wakeboard Tour, and went on to participate in all five tournaments and won the Junior Pro Men's category.

Shota became a well-known name on the tour, dominating the competition and eventually becoming Grand Champion. 2011 also bought rich success and many first place positions for Shota – he started the season as he meant to go on, with a win on the WWA Pro Tour Junior first stop, eventually winning the WWA Pro Tour Junior Pro men category overall. More recently, in 2013, he claimed silver at the IWWF World Wakeboard Championships.

Shota now resides in Florida, where he trains to be the best rider he can be, surrounded by the world’s top riders.
