We got to ask Parker a few questions… ___________________________________________________________________
SUPRA: When did you start surfing?
Parker: I’ve been boating and playing on the water for years but wake surfing for about 3 years.
SUPRA: Whats your favorite part about this growing sport of wake surfing?
Parker: This sport is full of really cool people! I’ve made great friends from all over the world. Everyone has a different story to make the sport fun and interesting.
SUPRA: Parker, why Supra?
Parker: Supra has an awesome energy and momentum that is very contagious! They’re fun people to be around and dedicated to making products to grow our sport!
SUPRA: What boat are you currently running?
Parker: A sick one! It’s an SE550 with the monster 550hp supercharged Raptor motor in it.
SUPRA: How would you describe the wave on it?
Parker: The wake surf wave is awesome! It’s super customizable, has a quick transfer and is all kinds of huge!
SUPRA: If you had a dream day what would it be?
Parker: My dream day would be camping with our friends down on the Brazos River in Texas. Get up early and down a big stack of pancakes followed by a morning surf set with my buds. Picnic lunch on the water with the boats tied together; swimming and some good tunes. More surfing in the afternoon. We wrap up the day with some wake skating and “death spirals” on the tubes. A movie back at the campground with friends and family then crash.
