Welcome to Wesley’s new website, http://wesmuresan.com. Wesley started snowboarding when he was just 3 years old, and began to skateboard when he was 4. Make sure to become a fan on Facebook or follow our RSS feeds to see all the latest awesome pictures and videos of Wes!
He truly loves to snowboard and skateboard – we appreciate your support so that we can support him.
7 year-old Wesley traveled from his home in the Midwest, to Colorado, and took 2nd place Nationally in Boardercross and 3rd Place Nationally in Slopestyle, in the Spring of 2014. Most surprising was his Boardercross finish… Wes is a freestyle rider and uses a freestyle board to race. He entered Boardercross for fun and ended up with a silver medal! He even bested the gold medalist in the semifinal, but ultimately lost by tenths of a second in the final! It was an exciting race.
In the days leading up to Slopestyle, Wesley practiced only the big jump line… when the event started, they closed off the big jump line and told him he had to compete on the smaller course because of his age. He was upset that he couldn’t do the big air jumps, and had to compete on a course he had never practiced… but he was really happy to earn a bronze medal!
Also in Colorado, Wesley got to ride barn rails in his friend Red’s backyard, ride with pros Blake Axelson and Redmond Gerard, and hang out on the mountain with his riding buddy Korey (they’ve snowboarded and skated together since they were toddlers).
Wesley would like to thank his mom for having a driver’s license, hauling him, his gear, and his three siblings all over the US, and enduring frequent arctic temperatures. Being a Shred Mom is not for the faint of heart. He also wants to thank his mom for not having heart attacks during his events. He knows she worries about how small he is and how big he goes. Pretty much… Wesley loves his mom.
Wesley has been in Colorado practicing this spring and he was super stoked to get to meet Red (www.SeeRedShred.com) and hang out with him for the day. Copper Mountain captured the groms’ fun on film and Transworld Snowboarding put the edit up on their site. Check it out!
Wesley would like to welcome Boulder Gear and Snow Dragons to his team for the 2012-2013 season! He will be sporting their outerwear on the slopes and is lucky to be able to train out West for an extended period of time this winter. Wesley hopes you’ll be as stoked on their outerwear as he is! Check out him and his brother, Devin, displaying their new gear (and getting goofy)… Photos …and if you will be wearing Boulder Gear or Snow Dragons this winter — a big THANK YOU for supporting Wesley by supporting his sponsors!!!
“Shaun White was such a prolific snowboarder as a child that his friends dubbed him ‘Future Boy,’ and the high-flying red-head from Carlsbad, Calif., went on to become a two-time Olympic halfpipe gold medalist and the sport’s greatest superstar… Shaun White, make room for Wesley Muresan… The new Future Boy, hailing from Dubuque, Iowa, is only 3 years old. He stands just 3 feet tall and weighs a mere 34 pounds… Future Boy II shares something… in common with White: He likes to dream big.” — Pete ThomasRead More About Wesley
