My wife thinks I have move hobbies than anyone she knows. I was curious how may hobbies other wakeboards have. Here is my list of hobbies I'm into:

boating (wakeboarding, wakesurfing, wakeskateing)
bow hunting (deer, turkey, etc.)
fly fishing (trout)
bass fishing
snowboarding
golf
home remodeling

I don't think I have that many; maybe it's the amount of stuff I have for each hobbie.

Hobbies are a good thing! It would be so much worse if you came home from a hard days work and just put all your money in the bank instead of spending it on awesome fun hobbies! the more the merrier.

In no particular order:
Wakeboarding and boating i think are two different hobbies
photography and videography
golf
snowboarding
skateboarding
RC helicopters (with video)
woodworking
drinking

Better to be busy than bored. I don't see these as hobbies though, they are a part of my life everyday. They make me who I am and how I spend my free time. Hobbies to me are reading books, building models, collecting things etc. I actually plan my day and life around these "hobbies". Here are mine:

Wakeboard
Surfing (ocean)
Snowboard
Snow skiing
Bombing hills on my longboard
Fishing
Cruising the strand in the summer
Boardshort design and R&D (ultimately cuts into free time but I don't mind

Most importantly, my wife and 2 kids, doing the above with them at any place any time.

My list is getting cut down slightly since i dont do all of these regularly any more but I still enjoy them when I have the chance and still ahve the gear for them.


Boating / watersports
Canoeing
Hunting (Bow / gun: deer turley duck small game)
Fishing (fly, freshwater, saltwater)
ATV's (4x4 mud / trail riding, Sport quad / racing)
Dirtbike - just sold dont plan to replace
Motorcycle - Just sold looking for another
Off Road (jeeps, etc)
Paintball - dont play as much anymore
Home DIY (my place + lake house + helping on my parents farm)
Camping (tent / backpacking / hiking)
Auto restoration - rebuilding a 72 C10
Puttering around in the garage kind of falls under the last one.
Pool - dont play in a league any more though
Darts - wife enjoys this, I play enough to not embaress her.

This thread is speaking my language. I don't have time to do all my hobbies at the same time but it seems that over my life I rotate through them & add new ones. Wakeboarding/boating is such a hobbie. Grew up on boats &wakeboarding for hours & hours as a teen/young adult. Left it for a time with young career, move to CA, marriage & little kids. As my kids got older it was a perfect reason to come back. I look forward so revisiting hobbies I used to do but am not presently. I also really enjoy diversity as exemplified by my list:
Wakeboarding /boating
Endurance sports- marathons, triathlons, cycling
Music, going to see bands.
Playing in my own band
Motorcycling, dirt & street
DIY almost anything construction or mechanical.
Golf
Camping, backpacking
Hunting
Surfing
Snowboarding & skiing
Beer / wine tasting. OK, well I never am too busy to not do this!
Investing/real estate
Personal growth.

I'm sure I've left a handful off.

I think the real problem is that chicks don't have many hobbies. I am similar to you guys but my wife doesn't really have any hobbies other than running and reading books.

My list:
wakeboarding
dirtbikes
photography
mountain biking
guitar and recording music (former studio musician)
airbrush art
bass fishing
duck hunting
rock climbing
RC cars
I am probably forgetting at least a couple

I agree with you Rob my GF tags along with me most of the time so as a result she has a mild interest in my hobbies, but she has none of her own. Like most of you I have a pretty large list as well:
Obviously wakeboarding/boating is a big one. I hunt dove, duck on occasion, deer and Predator. (mostly coyotes) I also process my own deer meat not sure if this is considered a hobby or not I only mildly enjoy doing this and it is more of a byproduct of my actual hobby of hunting. Shooting, and restoring cheap old guns that have seen better days, and I have recently started shooting skeet quit regularly. Training dogs for dove and duck hunting, I have two in training right now that take up most of my free time. Making Furniture, DIY stuff, Auto repair/customizing, home renovation, machining, metal work and general fabrication. Camping, but this really is a byproduct of my boating and wakeboarding hobby. I’m also thinking of starting to make my own wine with wild grapes (pretty plentiful around my parents land) anybody ever tried to make wine before?

Pretty cool to think that so many different people can have one thing in common. I see bikers, hunters, gear heads, skaters, athletes, photogs, artists, craftsmen, etc... all of whome share wakeboarding as a common interest. I'm with Andy, for me everything else is pretty much filler till wakeboarding season, but here's my list:

Wakeboaridng
Snowboarding
Basketball
Working out/Weights
DIY for Home and Auto

Rarely done, but worth noting:
Skateboarding
Golf
Video editing (although mostly wake)

As some "pro" once said, paraphrased, if wake boarding defined me that would not be good. While it's a major drive in my life I have realized there is more.
Long boarding
Road biking
Mtb biking
Gym
Cooking
Learning how to work on boat, truck, home.

"Hobbies" I do frequently:
Wakeboarding
Snowboarding
Kiteboarding
Dirt Bike
Mountainbiking
Road cycling
SUP
Scuba Diving

Other 'hobbies" I go back to now and then

Surfing
Climbing
Skateboarding
BMX

Does taking two months off every second year to travel and photograph around the world count as a "hobbie"?

I have almost the exact same hobby list as the Dustfarter accept take off Road Cycling (homo) and add a lot of Surfing some Superbike racing and Battle Wings! hahaha. Also add in some paintball and RC truck racing once and a while.

My garage looks like a combination of a car lot, motorcycle shop and a Sports Chalet!

My wife get's a bit annoyed with it all but my response is always the same......

"It's better than drinking, betting and cheating.... Right?!"


And to answer your travel question......No! It counts as a lucky bastard bonus!
