Have you ever wondered what getting up on a wake board feels like? I have ever since I was about 10 years old. Hi I Gabriella Monseu-French, an 11 year old student at Dunston middle school. I recently took a trip to Branson, Missouri where I was on a boat for a week, during the fourth of July. My friends family took me there and they knew how to do every boat activity. I however did not, but I learned very quickly. Getting up on the wake board did not take long. On the third attempt I tried getting up, and it finally all came together. It was like a magic bolt of energy rushing through my body. It was time that I believed I could do it, and so I did. The entire experience was so far beyond my wild imagination, and I do have a wild one, that I would recommend anyone who hasn’t tried wake boarding to go out and give it a try as soon as you have the opportunity. You can do anything you want to, just as long as you believe you can.
