At the age of 7, Grapevine/Southlake local Perry Morrison, discovered the excitement of wakesurfing on his first lesson at DFW Surf. On his 9th birthday his parents surprised him with his very first hand shaped wakesurf board. By the age of 12, after nearly 5 years of surfing lessons and top place finishes in Amateur wakesurfing contests, Perry signed a sponsorship deal with Tige Boat Company. Perry, an Evolution Team Rider, might be the youngest sponsored athlete in the sport of wakesurfing. So far it has been an amazing journey for Perry who has experienced more to life than just wakesurfing including new friendships and growth as an individual. Perry wants other students at his school and nearby to get involved in something new and exciting like he has and what better way to do so than to create a FREE weekly program. “The goal is to get more families involved and the sport of wakesurfing is something that the whole family can do,” says Matt Edmonson with Eagle Marine.
“This was the first time I ever experienced wakesurfing and now I am obsessed. I’m originally from Florida and I am glad that I have discovered a place I can call home.” -Luke Brickman (14, Flower Mound)
