wakeman7 04-26-2007 1:55 PM

Yes but if you want to become a christian you dont have memorize a bunch of stuff.

I've seen these guys on myspace. I think they are based out of Australia maybe? It's is definately good to see groups like this though. We have one called "Wakeboarders For Christ" based out of Arkansas. Hopefully we can get our website up before long. Wakeboarding is growing and a great place to introduce people to Christ!

wakeman7 04-26-2007 2:47 PM

Eric is this your site. <BR> <BR><a href="http://christianwakeboarding.com/" target="_blank">http://christianwakeboarding.com/</a> <BR> <BR>Do you know if there is any groups like yours in florida.

erock_15 04-26-2007 2:50 PM

No that's not ours. Actually I think that one has been like that for a while. We honestly haven't even started working on our real page yet. We just have a little myspace page. <BR> <BR>As far as the Florida thing goes I don't think there is one down there. But we have talked about trying to help other people get WFC groups started in their own state.

wakeman7 04-26-2007 2:57 PM

Yeah that would be awsome.

erock_15 04-26-2007 3:07 PM

Okay well send me an email at <a href="mailto:wakeboardersforchrist@yahoo.com">wake boardersforchrist@yahoo.com</a>. We are gonna meet to talk about our first event, which is this Saturday. And I'll bring it up at it and then let you know what they say.

hey guys my names Paul I started WakeUp Int. I only just found out where all the people joining the WakeUp forums were coming from! Thanks wakeman for the heads up. Yeah we have been running for less than a year, but lost the old site and forums which was a massive pain. But were back bigger and better, and now were international. Good to see people keen in what we do, thanks again wakeman catch ya in the wakeup forums

wakeman7 04-26-2007 4:16 PM

wakeman7 04-26-2007 6:06 PM

The site is awsome.

I volunteer for a faith based club up here in Minnesota. It's called Walk on Water. Check it out: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.walkonh2o.org" target="_blank">http://www.walkonh2o.org</a>

Glad to see that. I also saw where Shaun Murray said he liked ripin it for Jesus....That sure makes you feel good knowing some people will still take a stand when it is not politicly correct these days. <BR>Paul thanks for the wakeup stickers you sent me several months back we are putting them on some of our demo boards.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

helix_rider 04-27-2007 7:15 PM

There's another great group of Christians at <BR><a href="http://www.inhiswakes.com/" target="_blank">http://www.inhiswakes.com/</a>. <BR> <BR>I went and helped out for a D2R (Day to Remember) where they introduce kids to watersports and relate them to the Christian walk. They were all skiers there, but I brought my boards and the kids all wanted to learn that instead. It was a blast teaching them, and then seeing how the organizers linked the 'great day' in their minds with the message of Jesus. Look them up...I'm sure they could use help if they come through your area.

munners 04-29-2007 7:38 AM

no worries sealyon i havnt seen you on the wakeup forums yet!

extremeisaac 04-29-2007 9:22 PM

04-29-2007 9:38 PM

Hey wakeman.. there is christian group for extreme sports down here in FL called Radical Riders...I saw them out at the games this weekend, they have some affiliation with the wakeboard scene and shaun murray

mucktoerider 04-30-2007 6:12 AM

Matt is right, pretty cool site:<a href="http://www.radicalriders.com/" target="_blank">http://www.radicalriders.com/</a>

srh00z 04-30-2007 6:32 AM

Murray and Gerry Nunn are both outspoken about their faith, this article also impressed me, Harris is a new convert and it shows. <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=1071" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=1071</a>

wakeman7 04-30-2007 6:54 AM

Yeah I saw them at the wake games too. but couldnt find thier website so thanks.

erock_15 04-30-2007 7:46 AM

That was a sweet article I hadn't read that one before! We need more people to speak up like Harris did in that article. So people can see that there is a place for Christianity in wakeboarding!

ronnyboy27 04-30-2007 10:03 AM

I'm just curious but if people are very religous do they ride on sundays?

kylek306 04-30-2007 11:08 AM

well Ron, wakeboarding shouldn't be considered "work" in my book.

erock_15 04-30-2007 11:20 AM

I think religious is a bad word to use in the first place. Devout or faithful would be better, but anyways I ride a buddy of mine who is a youth pastor every once in a while on Sunday afternoons in between the morning and evening service. IMHO there isn't anything wrong with riding on Sundays as long as it's not getting in the way of you going to church.

srh00z 04-30-2007 1:18 PM

I agree with Eric, we ride in between church services, and it is usually a more mellow kind of day where other people who don't usually ride will come out and hang out on the boat.

bdaddy 05-01-2007 1:18 PM

Jesus was a barefooter not a wakeboarder and he didn't need a boat. I'm not sure if he would approve.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

wakeandsnow27 05-01-2007 4:21 PM
