Hi, my name is Dominik Gührs. My discipline is wakeboarding cable. My friends call me Niki. I was born on 1 April 1990 in Munich, Germany. My special talent is losing my passport while I'm on trips and always getting it back. My philosophy of life is everything happens for a reason. My favourite food is pasta. My favourite music is hip hop.
Dominik Gührs, or 'DG', prides himself on being as grounded as the guy next door. Despite having many accolades under his belt - including numerous German Championship titles, European Championship titles, a second place at the World Champion in the WWA as well as a People's Choice Ride of the Year award - Dominik always stays true to his values, putting his friends, family and fans first.
Dominik's career hasn´t been a story of success and plain sailing; his first and worst injury was a perilous basal skull fracture, which he suffered at the age of 13. But the young German was keen to continue, and went on to win the German Wakeboarding Championship three times (2004, 2005, 2007).
In 2006, Dominik ranked second in the German and European Championships and took home a bronze medal from the World Championships in the Juniors category. The story of success continued in 2007 when he took home the prestigious golden crown from the European Cable Wakeboarding Championships (Juniors).
With a victory at the World Championships in 2011, followed by the WWA World Tour title in 2012, Dominik continues to strive for domination on the water.
