Julia Rick has set her mark in the Wake Park World with a nearly impossible high bar to reach.
The native from Cologne, Germany has 11 World Titles under her belt and continues to push the sport forward. Here is a Q&A by the founder of Women’s Wakeboarding Community Liepa Girskaite.
How did you get into wakeboarding? How old were you?
I started wakeboarding when I was 16 years old. I heard about a cable park close to my home – Wasserski Bleibtreusee in Brühl – and so I decided to try it out and completely fell in love!
When did you decide that you want to be a professional wakeboarder?
I stopped playing soccer professionally in 2012 and decided to just focus on Wakeboarding as a sport and joining my first competitions. In 2012 I won the german nationals and became IWWF World Champion in the Junior Ladies division in the Philippines.
