Yes or Nos
Do you think grabbing the board is more important than being able to rotate the board? Of course. It's like learning how to walk before you learn how to run
Do you think a 1080 would score better than a mobe 720? Depends on which one is executed better I'd say
Do you think wakes will be bigger than they are now in 5 years time? The wakes are always going to be changing. However yes. They are going to be massive:)
Do you think wakes will be wider than they are now in 5 years? I think they will be the same
Do you think you will most likely ride the same length rope in 5 years time? That's a tough question. I guess we will just have to wait and see
Do you think it is an advantage to be shorter to be a better wake boarder? Not really
Have you road behind the SA? Yes!! It's awesome. I can't wait to get mine!
Are you a fan of the Supra page? Im pretty sure yes
Do you follow Supra Boats Yes yes I do
Do you follow @Supra_Boats on Instagram? Yuppp
Do you visit Not all the time
Will you be attending the 2014 Supra Boats photo shoot this year? Yes I will

Last question.
Best part about going wakeboarding is: going out there with a bunch of your close friends. Being able to ride with them was awesome. Always being able to push each other and being able to see some of their tricks rub off on you and wanting to make it look like theirs.
