Spy Optic’s Melissa Marquardt

Pro wakeboarder Melissa Marquardt is one of those female riders who puts many guys to shame with her detailed, technical tricks on the water. Her form can be thanked by her background in snowboarding and skateboarding, which has really impacted her unique, spirited wake style. Melissa is aggressive, agile and chic all at the same time, while being recognized as the best all-around female wakeboarder in the history of the sport. She progresses more in one season than some hope to do throughout their entire lives. Whether Melissa is competing on a pro tour or slashing wakes at a local lake, we’ll be hearing about her and her abilities for years to come.
