I've been watching Erika Lang ride for a few years. She definitely hasn't stopped improving and is still as motivated as ever. I just recently met Bryson Hancock at the same wake school, O'Town Watersports. He's an amazing rider with some cool wrapped combinations. Check out a set in a day of their lives!
