My name is JJ Quinn, I'm 20 years old, and I am the shop manager at AF Wake! My family moved here to Lake Gaston in 2006, and we've been on the water ever since. I took on wakeboarding at a young age like most of our campers! I grew to love the sport and other sports such as surfing, skiing, and recently foiling! I will be starting my 4th year at AF Wake in 2022, and I am stoked for what is in store for me. You'll likely find me in the shop helping customers choose the gear that is right for them. Since coming to AF Wake I've made really awesome friends, gained knowledge in the sports themselves, and continuing to learn what it takes to run a business. Check me out on instagram @x.jj.q.x

I am Trevor, I’m 22 years old and grew up on the water just about every weekend, mainly on Lake Anna and the Potomac River. I started wakesurfing in 2012 on a $50 skimboard and worked my way to being the 2013 Breakout Rider of the Year as well as the Men’s Outlaw Wakesurf Champion moving me to the pro division for 2014. Competing in the pro division at 15 against legends like Drew Danielo and Keenan and Noah Flegel was very intense, but I earned a 3rd place spot on the podium with Drew and Noah at the 2015 USA National Wakesurf Championships. Over the years, I have given wakesurf lessons to many riders, from beginners learning to get up to riders working on their contest runs and progressing through the divisions. I am excited to be working with the AF Wake Team to help bring competitive wakesurfing to Lake Gaston!
Hey y’all I’m Grace, I’m 20 years old from North Carolina and I’m currently a sophomore at Indiana University studying Business Management. I grew up going to my friends house at Lake Gaston and learned how to wakeboard when I was 8. When I was 15 I started wake surfing off of my friends boat and I fell in love with it! I enjoy sharing my passion of wake surfing with others which is why I love teaching people how to wake surf or learn new tricks! I’m so excited to get the opportunity to work at AF wake this summer alongside some amazing riders, represent young female riders, and inspire others to enjoy this amazing sport!!
