“For the first time in six months I was able to get back on the water and just carve around. Going through the whole process of blowing my knee, surgery, and rehab has taught me a lot. I tried to use it to help me grow, rather than bring me down. It’s made me view wakeboarding differently, too. It’s more than just a sport, it’s a way of life. It’s something that is a part of you, and having to be off the water for so long made me realize I can’t take it for granted. I’m more excited for the future than I’ve ever been.” – Gunner Daft
