Tell us more about Lake Como
My entire life since day one, I lived across the street from the lake. It's the most beautiful place in the world to wakeboard. In the _winter it's really chill, but in the summers it's crazy. There are a bunch of ferries _going around, and then there are people on boats everywhere all the time. Even if it looks smooth, there's always a little roll or wobble from long waves. So if you want to ride in the summers, you have to get up at dawn and start your day with a shred, and if you're lucky, get a set in right before the sun goes down. If you look at Lake Como, it's shaped like a Y; it's huge, deep and really long. We live right near Como, and our part is the busiest, so to get good water we would drive the boat to another section 15 or 20 minutes away [where] you can find places with less people. We would just pack some sandwiches, get a crew of like eight riders and go on a mission. We'd ride, stop at a beach to eat the sandwiches, and ride some more. Our coach always loved us. He would always drive to the nice water even if he didn't have to, and it was awesome.
