Hometown: Canyon Lake, California
Bio: Pro wakeboarder Melissa Marquardt rides as well as “one of the guys,” and at times, even better. In fact, she puts some guys to shame with her amazingly technical skills. Melissa’s background in skateboarding and snowboarding lends to a really distinct, dynamic wake style. She’s got power, agility and grace, and is recognized as the best all around female wakeboarder in the history of the sport, and an agent of progression every time she gets behind the boat.
Whether Melissa is riding the pro tour or dropping waterfalls, she’ll be doing it for years to come and she’ll be doing it with style.
