This view look familiar? Like from when you were half passed out at Spy bar last night?

Let’s face it, we are all here at this site right now for one reason, we love the wake.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with that but sometimes without realizing it, you fall into the wake bubble and lose touch with the rest of the world.  This happens to pros, amateurs, and fans alike. It especially happens to people who live in Orlando for too long. If you don’t get one of these signs below, attribute it to the fact you are lucky enough to live elsewhere. It’s always good to be cultured and try new and different things so don’t be afraid to take a break from the “wake” every once in awhile. A little diversity will only help you meet new people, have new influences, and spread the reach of the wake even further.  Remember the rest of the world still thinks wakeboarding/skating is throwing down that skinny little board on some rollers on the beach.

Top Ten Signs you know you are too deep in this Wake Game

10. You are waking up from a Taco Tuesday Hangover right now to read this
