“Ultimately it is up to where companies put their value. And if they truly understand where their sales are coming from” Mike Schweene.
I feel that guys like Mike Schweene are the understated heros of our sport. Yeah, we may be living in a far more general ‘boardsport’ collective of Boat, Cable and Winch, but let’s not forget what it took to get us here. Vision, faith and hard work. Way back when, before wakeboarding was wakeboarding, Mike Schweene possessed all the above, with a lot of love for the sport we take for granted today. Press play and step back. Raw interview : Mike Schweene.
“If it wasn’t for that first wakeboard movie ‘Spray’, I wouldn’t be here today. Just watching all the comraderie of the guys doing the pool gap together, as soon as I saw that, I was like ‘That is what I want to do’ – to be a part of a group of guys that are just stoked on each other whereas in surfing half the time when I was growing up guys were yelling at each other… whereas wakeboarding, seeing those guys working with each other just drew me to the sport” Mike Schweene
