FIVE years ago, Darla Friday pulled into Florida’s Orlando Watersports Complex hoping to find Mike Ferraro, the world’s top waterski coach. She wanted wakeboarding lessons for her daughter. When she found the $200/hr coach, he was adamantly against taking on a green pupil. His schedule was already jammed with top names like Philip Soven, Meaghan Major and Emily Copeland. It was tough for him to justify allowing a beginner to purchase his high-priced services, especially when he was already turining away more seasoned talent. But Darla convinced Ferraro to at least give her daughter a look. “She had her level 10 in gymnastics,” Ferraro reasons. “So that said to me she has the work ethic, the training experience and the body awareness. Something few wakeboarders know or care about. Can she learn to ride a wakeboard? I’d know in one session is she was worth training.”

I ask about her gymnastics career. “When I was about eight years old I started,” she begins. “My parents put me

in it ‘cause I as always jumping around, climbing on walls and stuff like that. I really loved it, and I was a natural, I guess you could say. So I started competing.”

Her social life was squeezed in on weekends and with the other girls at the gym. Just before her 13th birthday, Dallas began to look for something else to do.

“I was thinking about diving and swimming, which a lot of gymnasts do. My brother (Robin) was like, “Why don’t you try wakeboarding?” His friends would come out and [wakeboard] with

Dallas’s matter-of-fact approach to hard work is exactly what convinced Ferraro to train her. “You take someone who is already used to the pain of hard falls, the strain of working hard every single


So the following day Dallas arrived at OWC ready to take a set with the best coach in the world. Her only wakeboarding experience was riding with her older brothers, Robin and Chad, and even then it was a mere handful of times. when the set was over, the Fridays went to dinner with Ferraro to discuss his evaluation of their only daughter. It was at that dinner table where he made a blunt sobering prediction on 13-year-old Dallas Friday: “Your daughter is going to be the first female to make a million dollars riding a wakeboard.” Five years later, Ferraro’s statement has come true: Dallas has won every major title in the sport multiple times. Five years later, she is so dominant that when she stands on the start dock at an event, it’s quite plainly hers to win. Victory has become a table scrap to the rest of the field based solely upon the rare chance that Dallas might have an off-day. Five years later, she is coming off a nearly perfect season, winning all but one tournament.

CRAZE of the

Clothes and fashion took a splashy turn in the 1980’s. Attitudes were changing, and the clothes were changing with them. The 80’s was a time of excess, things were big and loud, even the colors. Neon colors became very popular - pink and turquoise and fluorescent yellow, acid green and electric blue. Bold patterns like repeated circles, triangles, or vertical lines and squiggles were popular, in contrasting colors. Some of the shapes echoed past times – the art deco of the 1920’s was a particular influence on the designers of the 1980’s – but the colors and the patterns were all new.


the board short

Board shorts are the number one accessory for us wakeboarders. No girl, should brave the wake without a pair of her own! This season, stand out on the blue water with the bold colors and patterns of the 80’s. You’re sure to catch the attention of any boat on the lake with these!


the dress

0 1 0

Summer is almost here, and with it comes the return of the dress. Last year was nicknamed “the summer of the dress” by the fashion industry, but this year is shaping up to earn the same title. This year’s version of the dress trend has taken on a fun new twist with the return of the long dress - it’s a comfortable, fun, throwback to 60’s bohemian fashion. In the fashion industry, the long dress is known as the “maxi dress”, but I’m not a fan of that term. It’s a little

too reminiscent of a feminine hygiene product, if you know what I’m saying. Anyway, maxi dress means long dress, so it doesn’t really matter what term you use. I know most college girls these days are all about the mini-dresses, and showing as much leg as possible, but sometimes less really is more. It can be so much sexier to make your outfit focus on one body part at a time, and long dresses are a great way to show off your upper body.


tee’s Old, thin, faded T-shirts have gone from garage sale fodder to wardrobe gold in the eyes of many retro-minded Mississippi State students. Vintage ‘70s and ‘80s T-shirts are one of the latest-and most pocketbook-friendly-trends to hit the college fashion scene. There are many avenues a college student can take when looking for a vintage or vintage-style T-shirt, but one of the most common are local thrift shops.
