Bob Soven

BOB SOVEN NEWS FEED

Robert "Bob" Soven is the younger brother of King of Wake Champion, Phil Soven. While Phil carries a very serious no-nonsense approach to wakeboarding, Bob's approach is completely the opposite. Bob always has a smile on his face and he attempts to include humor into every situation he's in, making him one of the funniest wakeboarders in the history of the sport. If there ever comes a point in Bob's life in which he can no longer wakeboard, we're confident he could make a very successful comedian. Because of this, Bob landed himself a show with MTV alongside his brother, called "WakeBrothers". While the show only lasted one season, it was incredibly popular within the wakeboard industry and turned Bob and Phil into celebrities.

It's always difficult for a younger brother to gain respect in a sport in which their older brother is so dominant. However, with such a drastically different personality, Bob found respect in other ways. While Phil's only goal is to win contests, Bob's goal is to entertain the crowd on and off the water in whatever way he can. Despite his goofy and entertaining perrsonality, Bob has also gained respect as a very talented wakeboarder, winning many competitions and winning Wake Award's "On Point" Award in 2009. Bob also has a younger brother, Jason, who is currently competing in Jr. Pro
