Bo McCallum has been an avid watersports enthusiast for as long as he can remember. When he moved to Echuca-Moama in ’97 he fell madly in love with the mighty Murray and all things waterskiing.

Bo first came to Brett Sands Watersports in 2001, to learn the art of barefooting from the master himself.From that day on, he swapped many mornings of school for half-day lessons with Brett to help fuel his new addiction. Bo quickly discovered the career path he was destined to pursue, and in 2006, by natural progression, commenced employment at Brett Sands Watersports.

Through Brett’s coaching and encouragement, Bo unearthed his love for wakeboarding during his first season at the ski school and in his spare time you’ll find him hitching a ride behind his friends’ boats. So whether you’re a slalom skier trying to refine those turns, a wakeboarder wanting to stomp the next trick, a barefooter searching for the ultimate rush or a complete first-timer, Bo is your man. He has an incredible knowledge of the sport and is a complete natural when it comes to coaching. He thrives on helping people improve their skills and have FUN on the water.

Bo has years of experience in the industry and has been heavily influenced by some of the best skiers, wakeboarders, barefooters and coaches in the world. He typically spends the “off-season” drifting around the USA living and riding amongst professional wakeboarders or teaching adults and children the latest move.

You can also find him in the alpine region following the tip of his snowboard down every piece of powder he encounters, searching for a different perspective from a similar sport to bring home to Brett Sands Watersports.When not in the boat, Bo is in the riverfront ski shop sharing his expert opinion on the latest board shapes, ski designs and everything you’ll need for an epic time on the water.With experience in testing prototype board shapes along-side the shapers and years on the water watching skis turn, he has a true insight into the design and physics that go into your new water riding apparatus.
