Gerry Nunn is the oldest top 20 rider on the Pro Tour in an environment where a teenager can lead the pack on any given Sunday.

Gerry Nunn is the oldest top 20 rider on the Pro Tour in an environment where a teenager can lead the pack on any given Sunday. His hairstyle leaves spectators with little doubt as to who that is on the water with the trail of hair following his every move.

But when it comes to riding a chunk of foam and fiberglass behind a boat, Gerry can go toe to toe with the heaviest hitters on the tour. He's one of only a handful of riders that are nailing double inverts in the tournaments and he's got a smooth and fluid style that makes even the most difficult moves look like a walk in the park.

Shaun's wakeboarding career started in 1995 and has been full of innovation and accomplishment, including many Pro tour and World championship titles. He promoted his own "Backyard Tour" with pro-rider and friend Gerry Nunn, has been featured in many wakeboard movies, magazine and television pieces, created his own wakeboard instructional series entitled "Detention", and is the star of his own video game, Wakeboarding Unleashed. In the summer of 2004, Shaun dislocated his knee while riding. He tore his ACL, PCL, and MCL. After reconstructive surgery he was told he might not ride again. But, just months later he was back riding. He has helped develop signature products that include boats, wakeboards, life jackets, wet suits, and clothing lines.

Today Shaun runs a wakeboard camp (The Boarding School) with friend Travis Moye. Travis is known industry-wide as one of the finest boat drivers and coaches in the world.

Shaun Murray has had dozens of wakeboard titles in his career which has spanned from 1998 to the present (2008). Shaun Murray was the first wakeboarder ever to land a 900 (regular hs). He is the only rider ever to hold World, Pro Tour and National champion titles at once, and was given a "Legend" award from Wakeboard magazine in 2005. Shaun's sponsors include Hyperlite, Fox, Nautiques, Reef, Jet Pilot and Freestyle performance.
