Best Whooooosh!

Raleigh Hager

Raleigh Hager makes riding waves look easy, and in a city without an ocean, that's no small feat. A pioneer on Austin's wakesurfing scene, this local teen takes home first place like the rest of us take home dinner. And by "teen," we're talking junior high, and by "first place," we mean world championships. Gone to her head, it hasn't. This lady is as grounded on land as she is on water.
