At age 41, Derek Correll is riding the biggest waves in his life.
Correll, a Sherrills Ford native, has been involved in the sport of watercross since 1987.
He initially became active in the sport by spending time with friends who were interested in jet skis as well.
"I started working on jet skis," Correll said. "I met up with some guys who were doing the same thing I was doing at the time. They also did their own maintenance work. I got involved with them a little bit and started learning things from them."
