INFLUENCE – EMILY AGATE
You never know where something will take you…
I am someone who rarely says “no” to an opportunity. I live my life to the fullest and try to make the most of every minute. When I first stumbled upon the competitive wakesurf scene, I saw an opportunity and went for it. I set my goals high and let nothing stop me from attaining them, but never imagined I would have the life I live now.
In October 2015 I was able to travel to Japan to help at a wakesurfing event. The hospitality I experienced was above and beyond. Not only did I get to wakesurf in Japan, I met many amazing people, had an experience I will never forget and was able to spend a day exploring Kyoto visiting three amazing temples.
I was only in Japan for three and a half days, but I definitely made the most every minute I was there, and probably did more than many would in a week! It truly was a weekend I will never forget and three years ago, never dreamed I would have.
I believe that there is always an opportunity around the corner that could change your life. When you set your eyes on something, fight for it, work hard and learn as much as you can along the way.
