Raya Walker signs with Doomswell Boarding Company

CROSSVILLE — The Doomswell Boarding Company is honored to announce that Raya Walker has joined their family as a women’s pro rider.

Walker comes from a family of major talent when it comes to water sports. She and her family bleed what the sport of surfing is all about, and they have a pure stoke for surfing and the industry as a whole. Her natural ability and surf style are rare in the the world of wake surfing today.

Walker began wakeboarding at the age of four. She was Tennessee State Champion two years and has competed in the nationals twice.  She was bit by the surfing bug in 2011 when she had the honor of attending the Quiksilver Pro New York where she participated in the Roxy Surf Camp.

Her passion for surfing grew and allowed her to excel in the sport of wake surfing. And the rest is history for her.

Here are some of her accomplishments:

2013 Season Results:

•Wake Surf Open California fifth Pro Women Skim/fifth Pro Women Surf

•Wake the Desert Texas third Pro Women
