Andrew said: ‘I wasn’t expecting to get access to the wakeboard, but we were lucky enough to befriend people with nice boats and I capitalised on my opportunity.
‘It was quite challenging to put the cap and gown on and, being my first time wakesurfing, it was a struggle to stay on the wake without the rope.’
