Cobe has been a part of the SAYiWON’T family since the beginning. He is a perfect example of someone living the SAYiWON’T Lifestyle. Cobe states: “SayiWon't is me. It’s my brand. When I first heard the creed, I felt like it was exactly what had been running through my head during every personal struggle. People try to tell you that you're not smart enough or you don't have what it takes, but their doubt fuels me more. It's like a huge push to beat the odds. I become way more competitive when someone tells me that I can't do something. I completely block them out and all I focus on is "I will." When asked to describe himself in one word, Cobe answered, “enthusiastic”. SAY i WON’T! 

“A legend in the sport [of wakeboarding], Cobe is one of the most energetic fun-loving guys you'll meet. If he's not on the boat, he's surfing, or riding his road bike, or go-karting, or riding bmx, or building something no one else has thought of!
Cobe grew up in Northern California and started wakeboarding at Donner Lake right as the sport was beginning. He moved to Orlando in the early 90's to pursue the sport professionally. Cobe competed on the Pro Wakeboard Tour for 13 years. He had a successful road tour of coaching clinics for 11 years. He was the 2000 IWSF World Champion. 
Cobe is now the OBrien Wakeboards Team Manager. He is also the inventor of Hangtyte and the owner of the HANGTYTE patent.” Cobe and his wife Tarah own and run Freedom Wake Park in Orlando where they offer instruction to all ages and skill levels for wakeboarding, wake skating, wake surfing, and even stand up paddle boards!
