|who won in the upper divisions? i wish i could have made it out there. looks like it was a great day.|
|Great pics. |
We were there for the last half. It was a great day, perfect weather and lots of cold beer.
|Hey Gary stop showing all those sic pics, your making me homesickI need to come back and ride, Im having withdrawls|
|Great to see Chris back out and killing it. Bummed I was not able to make it out this year.|
|It was good to see Chris ride. Humble kid. He made everything look super easy even though he didn't win. |
|Great pics, and great front row seat.|
Thanks for posting those shots of Chris. I was out of town also and didn't get to check it out. With Schwenne not there he missed a golden opportunity but I'm always happy just to hear his trunks didn't fall down in front of everyone.
|That looked like Tony Carroll, Tony is a funny kid. Looked like a great event.|
|It was a good time! No problems that I seen other than some dumb a** people in offshore, and the dude that wakeboard by when someone was ridin. There was alot of good riders out there, and Even's wake! THE WAKE WAS SICK!!!!!!! It was cool to meet all you guys out there and we def need to go ride. |
|Good to see Chris riding strong again. Anyone have the results?|
|Gary - Awesome pics! I had a great time,great riding! thanks again, I'll see about digging my pics of the camera tonight!|
|I saw that retard fly through in the offshore boat, but someone wakeboarded through the course? I missed that... wow. Anyways, was hella fun, and a great turnout! |
|Kevin - I think every one tied up yelled at that orange off shore! |
|haha yeah seriously |
*the lil offshore boat in my first pic isn't the one that flew through, they are innocent haha. just thought I'd mention that so nobody gets a wrong idea...
|Kevin, did you take that picture above? |
|Next year I'd like to see a girls only class!|
|Jarrod- Yes I took those pix, the second one overlooking your tower lights and NVS hehehe |
|Gary, what camera were you using for those shots, and or what lense combos did you use? Just asking, the shots look great.|
|The camera is a EOS digital Rebel, wtih a 200x zoom lens. I think thats right. It was my first time playing with the camera so I am still learning what is going on with it. I have a few other good shots I will post.|
|Gary I have the Canon 20D, but I haven't got any other lenses yet, if you could let me know the brand and all that stuff it would be great.|
|Evan, if you want to get the best lens for shooting WBing I'd look at the Canon 70-200 f4L, 70-200 f2.8L or 70-200f2.8L IS - $650 to $1600. I've got the 70-200 f4L and it's an excellent lens with the 20D. Arun's got the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 and I know he's happy with it.|
I have the Quantaray 70-300mm 1:4-5.6LD on my camera. And I have no idea what that means. I went into Wolf Camera (Denevi) and told them what shell I had and what I was looking to do and this is what they recomended to me. I know Walt has a pretty good lens and his pics are the quality I want. I researched his lens and I think it was in the 1500 dollar range. I paid 130 something for this one and so far I am happy until I figure out what the hell I am doing with the camera.
Give my congrats to Chris on what looked like to me a winning run. But I think he is one of the most fluid riders out there. I look forward to seeing some more of his riding in the future. Does he have plans on entering any other comps?
|Thanks fellas, BTW Gary I was chilling in My black nautique across the way. The one that is in the backgroound of one of your shots. If you see me out stop me and say hi.|
|out of everyone there dykmans was the coolest.... i have always wanted to meet him, and he was soo chill .. his first run was dope... i dont understand how he has soooooo much handle control.. he landed blind like no one else in the world.. it like he doesnt try.... but i think that he should have won.... if he didnt fall his 2nd pass.....well dykmans if you see this.... your run was dam impressive |
GARY do you have any pics of experts??? did you happen to get joels OA 5?!?!?! dam!! how about bud ( had a blue substance with parks bindings) and BIG OL BRANDON!!!!! he is sick!!
|Thanks Ryan! Ya Joel and Bud where both killin it. I have been tried to get Joel to come with me to comps all year, Then he does and kicks my a$$! But I know that would happen. He is a sick up and comin rider that I think people will start see alot more of! He could do two passes with all 5's and not do the same trick twice, and is very close to a toe off 7, thats sick!! |
Congrats to Ryan and Bud for makin it to INT nationals!!!!!!!! It is goin to be sick this year!!!!

|WOOOOO ..::spirt fingers::.. |
Hell ya BG is brandon hahaha
now the pressure is on....bud and i are taking 1st for c cal!
o ya .. r u riding the delta this weekend?? our X2 is gunna be there!!
|It is true, BG is Brandon! I am waitin for a call from Debbie to see about me and Peach(James). We both missed the last stop in sac, So we have to make sure they are takin two. It will be a good time. |
|I asked Chris what happened on that 2nd pass and he told me he shortened the rope and it threw him all off. Don't ask me why he did that after what sounds like a pretty decent first pass. |
Wakeboard contests are like boxing though, the last man standing up is usually the winner!
I, for one, miss the BelAqua tournaments and would love to see something like this one on a more regular basis, and thanks guys - I will pass on all the stoke!
|Chris is a pimp.... He's a super down to earth guy and welcome in my boat anytime. Rich, I've been hearing some huge hype about that new VLX of yours. Blake told me that thing with stock ballast is just like my boat all loaded. I want a pull . |
Brandon: You guys were killin it on Saturday. We'll have to hook up and ride one of these days. Not sure about you, but we're getting geared up for the best riding of the season (late sept, oct and nov). We're always looking for additions to our winter crew.
|Who won the contest?|
|We've had a lot of different guys - Brady, DC, Aubrey & Doud to name a few - ride behind it and it seems that with stock ballast, the wedge and 4-5 people in the boat they've all been happy with it. |
It's been nice to not hear any "wake whining" for sure!
PM me your number and I will pass it on to Chris, you'd be surprised how many times he's looking for a third.
|Evan thanks, that was one of the funnest runs I have had in a long time. Your WAKE IS SICK!!!!!!! I ride year round so I am down to go ride anytime! After this weekend best time of year to ride the delta, No yahoo meatheads, and no wind! |
Just let me know when you guys are goin out and I will be there!!
|That's cool Tony Carroll got some pictures in. Good photo work. Great to see Dykmans back and riding. |
|Hey Arun, A kid named Matt Norton from Sac won it. Sponsored by CWB. He has gone riding with me a few times, He rips.|
|Arun, Kenny is coming out to Discovery Bay this weekend, you should role out for a day if you have some free time. We will probably ride early and late. Too many people in the afternoon.|
|Those pictures were awesome , good job and thanks for sharing that with us!|
|Here is a few more... |
