I first met Hollie Waldrop at Orlando Watersports Complex a couple years back. She never stops riding and she's a pretty good ripper, especially for her young age. Another thing she never stops doing is smiling and having an overall positive attitude. When she's riding behind a boat, it's usually at O'town Watersports under the guidance of Glen Fletcher. Hollie already has an impressive bag of tricks and sponsors and it'll be interesting to see how many titles she'll grab in the future. Check her out!
