One sport you would never try?

Bullriding: Steer-riding was enough for me.

Favorite song?

Do you have any wakeboarding superstitions or habits?

Not anymore. I used to think certain boardshorts would be the fault of my good or bad contest runs. Really, I was just nervous. Once I got over the whole nervous thing, contests got a lot easier. Now I don’t care which boardshorts I wear, as long as they’re Girls With Guns clothing!

Flying

What would you do if you couldn’t wakeboard?

Snowboard more.

A mermaid, then a construction worker, a forest service worker, a pro wakeboarder, but always also wanted to be a teacher.
