Who wouldn’t love to watch a beauty like Missy doing some cutbacks or one hand grab air across the water on her wakesurf board? She isn’t an amateur either, this sponsored wake surfer has spent two years in the competition circuit. You don’t know how to wake surf, no worries as Missy also loves to teach beginners for the fun of it. Now don’t bombard her with emails asking her to teach you. The wakesurf board isn’t the only board in her arsenal of tricks, she also loves to snowboard when she isn’t on the water.
Another thing we loved about Missy is her positive outlook on life along with her drive to live every moment to the fullest. How does Missy describe herself; friendly, outgoing, and fun-loving.

Missy: I love working with new photographers! Most photographers I work with I become friends with.
S!: What are some things you dislike/hate about the industry?
Missy: Its definitely a touchy industry that you need to have thick skin for. It’s rare to find other models to connect with as this is a pretty isolating profession. I’ve heard “no” more times than I’ve heard “yes” and it is definitely hard to keep going when you keep getting turned down. Just have to stay positive!
