How did your Motocross background influence you when you started with wakeboarding?
JW: This comment my sister made (who is a passionate MX rider) probably sums it up perfectly…The first time she came out to ride at Bli Bli cablepark with me she said, "I don't get it, how do you ever get past them? How do you win?"
Motocross definitely gives you a very competitive mind set. Your mind is in a strategic think mode all the time when you ride, as you plan for the current move, while thinking ahead about your next move. But I think the biggest thing I learned from motocross is that, the only way to improve is to practice, practice, and more practice. Go back to the basics at the start of each season, re-learn everything again, and add to it.
