Hi my name is Jade Whirley and I’m a Minnesota native who recently moved to Texas to ride year round. I’m 24 years old and have been wakeboarding since the time of the skurfer. Back in Minnesota we really only had boat riding, but now that I’ve moved to Texas it has open up more opportunities to winch and ride cable. It’s amazing how many spots can open up when you have a little creativity & the right people surrounding you.

Thanks to my girlfriend Lana for all her support & work with photos & video, my brother Dan for getting me started,  Blake Vorwald, Blake Hess and all the operators at Texas Ski Ranch, Logan at Yankmeister winch, Jason Lybeck from the Faction Boardshop, Ed & Justin at wakeboarder.com, Ryan Taylor visual, Slingshot Wake, Dragon, and Reef.

    This is some of the stupidest shit I have ever seen. Tantrum down a drop? Wakeboard winching is a last stitch effort to keep a dying sport popular. Wakeskating is taking over.

    O.k. Oompa loompa 
    Just because your still all but hurt about Willie Wonka touching you in the boys bathroom all those years ago doesn’t give you the right to hate on wakeboarders! Were all just out here to have some fun… Wakeboarders, wakeskaters, even waterskiers ands tubers have every right to express themselves out on the water. Who are you to say otherwise?? An orange midget with green hair!!!!!!!
