ON THE COVER

JOSH PALMA

By Kyle Rattray Palma is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. He is a great ambassador for wakeboarding. I’ve been around Palma at The Boarding School and on tour for a few years. I’ve been able to watch his career grow, as well as see him grow as a rider. Palma is the kind of guy who looks at wakeboarding as a job, and takes it very seriously. He’s always working on a new trick, or trying to tweak tricks he can already do to make them more consistent. He’s also really dedicated off the water, spending time by staying in shape, coaching at The Boarding School, doing clinics, and working closely with Mastercraft. Palma is great for wakeboarding and is definitely doing things right. If you ever get the chance
