Bryan "Bee Why" Hughes is a water sports enthusiast from western North Carolina who loves teaching people of all ages how to wakeboard and waterski.

Experience:

Bryan first started waterskiing when he was 10 years old, and switched to wakeboarding at age 12. At age 18, he and his brother Josh put together a summer wake training program on the Chatuge Reservoir in Hayesville, NC. Bryan spends every summer helping riders of all ages to progress their abilities. Now, as a certified wake instructor and boat driver, Bryan continues to find new opportunities within the water sports world. He has even had a chance to swap stories with X Games wakeboard champion, Danny Harf.

By Bryan Hughes:

Ever since I first stood up on a pair of waterskis, I have been hooked on water sports. I can vividly remember the overwhelming feeling of joy that I felt as I was skimming across the water. The happiness I experienced that day is something that I love passing to others, and it thrills me to vicariously re-live that day every time I watch someone stand up for the first time. Since then, I have switched to wakeboarding as my water sport of choice, but I still have a great fondness for all water sport disciplines.

I can think of no better way to spend a summer than riding behind a boat, and I'm eager to help the About.com community as the waterskiing guide. Please feel free to contact me if I can help you with your riding.
