Amber Wing retired from competitive wakeboarding not long ago, yet the fast-talking star has got more energy than a supernova.
Here is the story of the gifted and delicate Australian beauty who chased the summer across two continents for a decade and a half, riding with the guts and brains of a Super ‘Shero’.
In 1998, Amber Wing was 15-years-old when she tried wakeboarding for the first time. She was on a waterski holiday with a friend from gymnastics.
“I asked my Dad for a Wakeboard for Christmas that year, he bought me a Freemotion Journey. This got me on the water behind our family ski boat and my love for the sport began.”
Amber was extremely focused on Gymnastics, training up to 40 hours a week with the upcoming Olympic games in Sydney in her dreams, but early in the 2000 season she severely broke her ankle and her olympic hopes came to halt.
