The winningest female wakeboarder of all time invited us over for a ride today. Dallas Friday has been on the water daily behind her pink-toned/silver flake Wakesetter VLX, after overcoming what some thought could be career-ending injuries to her legs.
Besides some visible scars left from surgery around her knees, you wouldn't think anything was wrong by the way Dallas rode her wakeboard and wakesurfer. However, her trainers at Sports Specific Rehab and coach Mike Ferraro suggested she rides mellow through the winter and saves up for the spring, when the 2012 Queen Of Wake Tour get closer.
"I know I can get all my tricks back," Friday said with confidence. "I'm just so happy to be back on the water every day and I feel great."
