Bryan Hughes is a former writer for ThoughtCo who specializes in how-to guides for wakeboarding and waterskiing. He first started waterskiing when he was 10 years old, switched to wakeboarding at age 12, and still continues to practice both sports to this day.
At age 18, he and his brother Josh Hughes put together a summer wake training program on the Chatuge Reservoir in Hayesville, North Carolina, and Bryan spends every summer helping riders of all ages. Now, as a certified wakeboard instructor and boat driver, Bryan continues to find new opportunities within the water sports world. He has even had a chance to swap stories with X Games wakeboard champion Danny Harf.
Bryan Hughes studied at Southern New Hampshire University before moving to Charleston, South Carolina, to open up a clothing retailer in the city, which closed in 2017. Currently, Hughes is a New Business Development Executive at Mobilia Consulting.
