Wakeboarding, A Popular Sport

by Jessica Cervantez

It is a popular sport, and it has been a good way for some SFA students to cool off this summer.  They joined SFA's wakeboarding team.

For the past few years, many students like 21-year-old Clint Hibbard have competed on the SFA wakeboarding team. The students all enjoy hanging out at the lake and learning new tricks on their wakeboards.

But, they know this extreme sport does cause a lot of injuries.

Hibbard said, "It is not very safe.  I've already had two knee surgeries.  I'll probably have to have another one pretty soon."

The team has about 30-members and almost half of the members are girls.
