      Video Transcript

      Hi, my name is Chad Sharpe. I have been a professional wakeboarder for 13 years. I get paid to travel the world, compete and promote wakeboarding. I’m here for the Water Sports Foundation to talk to you about wearing a life jacket. Even though I am a pro rider I take the same precautions as any smart recreational rider.

      A couple of years ago in our off-season I went out to take a ride and didn’t have a vest in the boat. I was out riding and just doing basic tricks and I was just doing a trick that I do every single day: a backside 540 and caught my edge real hard. I didn’t go unconscious or anything. I was upside down looking up at the top of the water with my feet still in my binding, and I’m like “All right you know that one really hurt, I got to swim up to the top”. My whole body is not moving and I kind of started panicking. And you know I can’t move my hands, I can’t get to the top. Luckily I had a full breath. And I knew the boat was coming back around and my board was still on top.
