My name is Austin Pratt, I’m from a small town just outside of Dayton Ohio. Pro for Ronix Wakeboards and Mystic!
What is the reason you committed your life to kiteboarding?
My reasons for choosing wakeboarding as my career is simple, I get to travel the world with my best friends and there is nothing more fun than riding my wakeboard.
What is your biggest achievement in your sport?
My biggest achievement in the sport is getting to hang out and ride with all the guys that I had photos of all over my walls. I never thought I would be where I’m today 5 years ago.

What are you doing to push yourself everyday?
The things that I do to push myself on a daily basis is to watch a lot of things that aren’t wakeboarding. I spend a lot of time skateboarding and looking for outside influences, even influences from nature to inspire and push my riding on the water.
What is your vision on what direction the sport should go?
I love where the sport is heading right now, I think with things like system 2.0’s popping up all around and a ton of new full size cables going up every year I strongly believe that cable riding and winching is the future of wakeboarding.
