owner of boat dealership, boat manufacturer, board manufacturer, accessories, etc. Designers in all those fields. Just think of everything that goes into each product that you own that you use to wakeboard from the boat to laces on your bindings...

If I were to have a career in the industry I would want to be:
head of marketing/advertising/ web design; team management, event coordinating and/or product design. Just some more ideas for you!

Andrea had some good ones!! Being a rep would be nice to, I'm pretty jealous of Brian at Hyperlite, or Justin at Slingshots job, they travel around, meet people, ride, and sell an awesome product!!

And they're some of the coolest guys out there!!

other than marketing and journalism side there is the boat manufacturer engineer. Thats a cool project for a freshman class.

Along Andrea's line, I would like to sign up as "team mom". I guess you could call it team management and event coordinating, and/or chief cook. That would be a great job, and I would be great at it.

I wish I was 15 again. Just to be able to decide on a different career path.

I think the most common would be on the retail side at a board shop, marina, or boat shop where you could be sales clerk up through management positions. Also could be writer, editor, or reporter for the mags. David Williams also seems to have a pretty cozy job in the industry!

Travel is cool when you are young, but it gets old after a few.

I got a good buddy that is the managing editor of wakeboard magazine I can hook you up with him if you need to interview any one for the project.

I'm the editor of SBC Wakeboard Magazine, Canada's leading wake publication. Let me know if you have any questions. And I've been a wake photographer for about ten years as well.

i think it would be really fun to be a rep. for a boat manufacture or a board manufacture. besides when they are out for 3 months of boat shows.

I started working as a sales clerk in a pro shop and now moved into web sales/development. Its a definite and realistic path. If you want some info shot me a line and I can help you out with anything!

I think its safe to say that anything in the industry which involves being on a boat as a job is probably killer.
