The industry has changed quite a bit in your time as a pro, and these days it seems harder than ever to actually be a pro and make a decent living as a wakeboarder. What are your concerns about wakeboarding's future?
I think it is harder to be a pro, but that might be because it's too easy to become a pro, if that makes sense. In snowboarding and skateboarding, it really means something to get a pro-model board, for example. Guys spend years grinding away before getting rewarded with something like that from a company. I think in wakeboarding, it's still a bit too easy, and too many kids are able to call themselves "pro" when, in reality, they aren't.
