So I have heard a few comments on here about how the other board sport communities view wakeboarding as the redheaded stepchild of the industry. Some even say that wakeboarders are rednecks. I’m just wondering everyone’s thoughts on this. Why do you think they feel this way?

I think it would help if everyone focused on the sport itself, not the hype surrounding the sport. It annoys me when I see a “hot chick” section on a wakeboarding website or in a magazine. This is unnecessary and a little juvenile IMO.

Also, there’s a lot more to wakeboarding than partying and drinking at the lake and on the boat. I won’t ride with anyone who has a driver who’s been drinking and I don’t like riding with people who are drunk. I wish they would start cracking down more with boat drinking. Getting drunk on a boat is the epitome of redneck.

These are just a few things that I could see to improve the progression and image of wakeboarding. I would love to hear your thought on this.

Russ
