Wakeboarding Fun

William Porter | Mississippi delta

During a church cookout, we had a fun boat ride in the summer heat. 15 years old and a troublemaker, I was eager to try wakeboarding. This wasn’t some videogame or TV show. I could really fall or fly on the cold river. Normally, the current is calm and relaxing. This time was exhilarating. Having started skateboarding, I was ready for the next step. Rivers can be so much fun!
