This year was the summer of the wakeboard. I have been an avid water sports enthusiast my entire life. Somehow being active on the water just puts everything into perspective. Last year we upgraded our boat and the new one has a tower and came with a wakeboard. I tried wakebarding in my early 20’s but never really did it enough to be considered a wakeboarder. I would rather slalom ski anyway.
This year I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I am really glad I did. What a blast!
At first I wasn’t too good. I kept trying to ride the board like a ski! It usually ended rather ugly.
This one hurt pretty bad. Eventually I started to get the hang of it and by last weekend I had learned to fly.
I will be 55 in December. I have been fighting Stage 4 Prostate Cancer for over 12 years now. I continue to do well in the fight. We only get one life that we know of. Despite Cancer I will continue to live life to the fullest as long as God allows me to.
