Hey, I have some kids at school that are trying to tell me that wakeboarding is a event and not a real sport. Being a wakeboarder myself,and a someone that stands for what they belive, and don't back down,I told him was wrong. Other kids started to back him up. I am asking you to please post a short message supporting are sport telling all these kids they are wrong , and are outnumbered by a lot.
