My wakeboard journey has been different than most.
A rider update by BabeShredder, Kaley McNay.
In 2012, I competed in Active Water Sport’s Freerider’s Ball at age 27 and continued competing at local stops throughout 2013 and 2014 in Oregon and Washington. By 2014, at age 29, I was able to purchase a boat with additional support of my dad and brother. This brought my training to a new level and I spent the majority of 2015 free riding and training to compete in 2016.
Now at age 30, I will be competing in the 2016 WWA Women’s Masters Division at the Western Regional stop and hopefully qualifying for Nationals and Worlds later this year.
I stay active in the off-season by snowboarding, weight-lifting, rock climbing and yoga. It's important to maintain my strength year-round so I'm fully prepared when I return to the water. I have incredible support from my sponsors, family, friends and boyfriend and I feel blessed to be living the life I am. For that reason, I am passionate about giving back to the sport.
This June I will be participating in the Wake the World charity event which provides foster children the opportunity to learn how to wakeboard. I participated in this event in previous years and the turn out is incredible. It is one of the most rewarding days I spend on my boat all year.
