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.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
