My name is Joel Wagner, I’m 20 years old, and I’m from Smith Mountain Lake, VA. I moved to SML in 2000 and started wakeboarding shortly after. I ride for our local board shop, Wake N Skate Board Shop, and CWB. I’ll be a Junior at Virginia Tech this year, and hopefully will help take our wakeboard club on to win collegiate nationals.

  5. Abe Lincoln Says:

  10. Seriously? Hating? Says:

    Come on guys, seriously? Do you just get on to rag on the way that people ride? You all sound like the crazies over at WW arguing about whether or not Phil Soven has style. How many of you can do all of your tricks except for your mobes switch? So he doesn’t have the most style, who cares, the guy shreds either way.

    As for pulling down boardshorts… Nearly every pro rider I watch a video of does it frequently, nearly everyone that I know pulls them down frequently too. Personally, I find it more comfortable when my boardshorts AREN’T bunching up above my knees. Why you would rag on a rider because he pulls bunched up shorts down after tricks where they come up is BEYOND me.

    Come on guys, be decent, stop with all the hate on all of these videos all of the time. There’s no need for it.

    Ive seen joel ride many times and he is a sick rider and super nice guy! why are ya’ll hating so much?? i doubt you can do switch tantrums whirlybirds raleys or frontrolls. go be negative somewhere else

     
  12. Titz Says:

    Deffinately got some tricks, but i think some style is needed

     
  13. Dustin Tosh Says:

    That is some awesome riding and all those people who said he has no style is full of it because until I see all the haters videos out there tearing it up they have no room to talk. Joel is one of the coolest guys you could ever meet and his style is just like his personality laid back and smooth.

     
  14. Le Roy Gutierrez Says:

    forget the haters bro. nice riding

  16. Reeder Says:

    whoever Yup is, is a pussy. Post your real name if you gonna talk shit.

    What other rider in this section on Alliance has been doing Switch and Regular stuff behind the boat. Keep up the good work Joel. Way to see Virginia represent. As for the haters. keep hating. Your paying our bills.

    ps. i bet yup is a wakeskate. and not just any wakeskate but one who does surface 360 shuvs. Bravo bravo

  20. Ed Wagner Says:

    Sounds like somebody has a dooky in there underroos… not the spirit of real riders. Better get some prosac or take up knitting!

     
  21. hokie Says:

    haha I love it. Haters gonna hate, but all of us who know Joel arent too worried about it. Hopefully Joel is the same way, cuz he shreds, and his grab back 180s are as legit as they come.

     
  22. GH Says:

    muy bien grabbed fs 3 , looks like style to me…
