I have been asked why I am "addicted to wakeboarding". I am trying to find the answer, all I know is that it is just what I do and I have fun doing it. It is fun to practice your but off just to show off in a 1 minute competition run. I know I want to never regret not doing something, if I see something that looks fun I do it. Everything is worth a try.
I help younger kids learn to wakeboard that live on the lake I do. I first ride with them in between my legs, that is cool because you can "feel their stoke" and you remember why you wakeboard. Then you are down in the water with them helping them get up and you see how happy they are just riding 5 ft. and catching a front edge, they are stoked to get up.
Maybe it is the girls. I don’t think I wakeboard for girls, but it is certainly a plus. I think I like to show off in front of girls because I mean come on, "if it wasn’t for the uncontrollable need to impress girls we would all be setting at home waiting to die".
I think the real answer is that we just love it. It might sound fruity but wakeboarding is in the heart, right? live to ride ride to live right?
Ya it is that I just love it.
