Who will win the pro tour this year: pro men: I'm calling a rivalry between dowdy and Harley

Junior pro: I hope James Loisel... Maybe Noah flegel, massi or tony iacconi

Pro women: Rebecca gange will be a serious threat but maybe nicola!?

Do you think grabbing the board is more important than rotating the board? Yes I kind of do because if you don't grab the board and give it style and make it stand out its just another spin.
I do think that a 1080 would score more than a mobe 720 because very few people have done a 1080 in comp. where there have been a little more mobe 720s

I think that in 5 years the wakes will be about head high if they keep going at the rate they are at now with increasing wake size.

I think that if the wakes keep bigger the wakes need to be wider also so your no going straight up and into the flats.

I think In 5 years time I will be at a little bit of a increase in rope length.

I think when you are shorter you are a little liter so you can be taken by the wake alittle more than a big person could.

I have rode behind the SA and I absolutely love it!!!

I am a fan of supras Facebook page!

I do follow supra boats on twitter!

Almost on a weekly basis I go on Supras web address.

I will be attending supras 2014 photo shoot!! It will be awesome!
The best part for me of going wakeboarding is the adrenaline that you get when boosting off the wake or trying a new trick that you have never done before it is awesome!
