Q. What are your recommendations for girls who have never tried wakeboarding before?
A: My main goal in this sport besides progressing women riding is introducing new women into the sport. For any girl looking or thinking about trying wakeboarding, I know its intimidating but women can do it too! Whether you are trying it behind a boat or the cable park I encourage you to fall in love with this sport.
Q: What are your two favourite spots to start Wakeboarding?
A: The hub so to speak of wakeboarding is definitely Central Florida "Orlando" area simply because of the weather but you can try it around the globe. It's not a college sport yet although we do have our own organization that scantions all the events (WWA).
Thank you, Shannon!!!
