Grandmother Of Wakeboard



Linda Brown just entered the Guinness World Book of Records as the “Oldest Woman Wakeboard Competitor.” At 63, Brown admitted the whole thing started out as a joke when one of her grandchildren urged her to compete at her ripe old age since she was already competing for many years prior. So, Brown and her husband looked up any previous records for this category and behold: they realized they actually had a shot at this record. Good for her. I wish my gammy could wakeboard. I have to say this is one vibrant grandmother. So Linda entered the Battle of Bull Run Wakeboard Tournament in July, 2009 officially making her the oldest female or male wakeboard competitor as later confirmed by Guinness. Way to go Linda!
