ABOUT ANNA

What was one of the best moments on your wakeboard?

I think some of the best moments on my board have been just carving some morning laps on a glassy cable or landing something new that you have worked on for a while.  That’s a pretty good feeling too.

 

What lessons has wakeboarding taught you?

My whole wakeboarding career has been a learning process, but the most important lesson I have learned, is to trust yourself.

 

What does it mean to ride for LF?

Before I was given the opportunity to ride for LF, I had always looked up to the brand because of their well-rounded and respected reputation. Now, riding for LF means that it’s up to me ( and all my teammates ) to continue to push the boundaries and set new, higher standards for the sport. I feel a sense of responsibility to lead by example.

 

Who or what inspires you?

There is so much inspiration all around the sport. To narrow down to what inspires me the most would be difficult.  However, I could say that first off my brothers were my first inspiration, then it was my dreams of taking this sport further that inspired me.  Then most importantly, all the other women who are dedicated and pushing the limits that I get to ride and compete alongside with inspire me and continue to push me.

 

What do you think you are doing too much of or too little of because of wakeboarding?

I would say based on my previous season, I’m doing too much competing and not enough riding for myself. Naturally, I’m a competitive person, but I’d say it’s time for me to ease up on the contests and really focus on progressing more. I think it’s important to remember why you started wakeboarding and to remember to ride for yourself first. As long as you’re having the time of your life, everything else will fall into place.
