Seven Deadly Questions With Braden Bishop
The Watercraft Journal: Braden, thanks for taking time away from your classes to talk with us. Can you tell us how you first get into jet skiing and then, eventually into racing?
Braden Bishop: Both my parents raced before I was born, not on the Pro tour, just local Texas races. We have had jet skis my whole life; I can’t remember a summer that was not spent on the lake riding. My parents always shared stories of their race days and how much fun it was. So from very early on I knew I wanted to get out there and try. Every summer I would beg my parents to sign me up for a race, but due to other commitments my brother and I had, time just would not allow it.
It was not until my senior year in high school that I was able to devote the time needed to travel to area races. I got in touch with Brian Smith with [Region 5] and he invited me out to practice with him and his group. I then signed up for my first R5 race. I knew on the first ban snap I was hooked. I have always loved to ride but now racing was going to be my main focus.

Braden is a very nice young man. I had the pleasure of talking with him on the phone a few days before our interview and he was both quite respectful and gracious to be the subject of our interview.
