Dallas Friday - From The Gym To The Water

With a name like Dallas Friday, the top female wakeboarder on the planet almost seemed destined to be some kind of action sports hero. She was born in 1986 in Orlando, Florida - one of the biggest wakeboarding hotspots in the United States. Before entering the sport of wakeboarding, Dallas' favorite sport was gymnastics and she was one of the top gymnasts in Florida in her age group. But after getting burned out on gymnastics, Dallas was introduced to wakeboarding by her brother, Robin. The strength, flexibility and body awareness she developed from gymnastics made her a natural at wakeboarding and she picked up several sponsors just a year after strapping on a wakeboard for the first time.

Dallas Friday - Wakeboarding Wonder

Since turning pro in 2000, Dallas Friday has absolutely dominated women's wakeboarding. She's taken the gold in wakeboarding at the X Games four times and will be the favorite to take gold at the 2006 X Games as well. Besides winning a ton of comps and making a crapload of cash, Dallas Friday has also pushed women's wakeboarding to new levels by mastering new tricks and running off big aerial maneuvers with ease. Many male wakeboarders say she could one day even compete against the top boarders in the men's wakeboarding tour.
