Gisela Meyer’s Professional Wakeboarder Journey

Gisella Meyer is best known as a Florida Gulf Coast University volleyball player. But she has also made a name for herself in the wakeboarding world.

Meyer is a professional wakeboarder and has won the Women’s A title at the NCAA wakeboarding championships in Shreveport, Los Angeles.

Gisella won the title by defeating a famous Wakeboarder, Shawna Hoffman, who competed in the IWSF Wakeboard World Championships as a member of Team USA.

Gisella had never imagined winning, and it was just her passion.

Still, she participated in several competitions and eventually won most of the time.

How Did She Get Into Wakeboarding?

Meyer stated that her passion for wakeboarding started when she was 10. That time her snowboard had melted, and she went to try wakeboarding for the first time at a friend’s lake house.

She got hooked on it then after. So, when her parents were looking for a place to retreat near Gainesville, they thought of having a beach house, but Gisela convinced them to go with a lake house.

Gisela met Andy Wilcox, a former professional trick skier and a Gators booster who taught Meyer her first invert at 14. She amazed everyone with a black flip at 16.

When Gisela joined FGCU, Urban Meyer introduced her to the people who worked at the waterfront. Gisela then joined FGCU’s wakeboarding club team.

She secured the fourth position in the Women’s A division of the Wake Games in 2010 and won the Lally’s Board Bash in Napolean, Ohio.

Meyer got herself a sponsor, Hyperlite, which provided her with boards, shorter and thinner surfing-like apparatuses with foot bindings.

Gisela was also featured in a 2010 Nautiques commercial with her dad. She was featured along with the Wakeboarding pros Danny Harf and Emily Copeland Durham.

She’s the Northeast Regional Rider for Hyperlite and performs exhibitions for the Scioto Boardshop of Columbus, Ohio.

Gisella is a professional wakeboarder, but it was hard for her to manage both wakeboarding and volleyball. For now, she is more focused on volleyball but hasn’t stopped wakeboarding either.
