I prefer wake surfing to skateboarding or wakeboarding (which I used to do) because it hurts a lot less. Wake surfing is also cool because you can continue to do it when you’re an old man; like me. I have been actively surfing now for 8 years. I enjoy the inclusiveness part of the sport. It is awesome because my entire family can participate and enjoy the sport together. We’ve met many lifelong friends from surfing around the world. I’m proud to be an executive member of the Competitive Wake Surf Association.
