Well I know it's been along time (over 4 months but who's counting), but I'm back Wake World! I know some of you might have missed seeing me around these parts, and I'm sure there are some who don't, but oh well! <BR> <BR>So where do I start? <BR> <BR>Well for those who do not know I recently moved up to Lake Nacimiento, and since I've been having a blast. <BR> <BR>I started a new profession as a carpenter and have been learning a ton. I also learned how to split my thumb open with a framing hammer. <BR> <BR>My Uncle and I have started a Wakeboard Club called Oak Shores Wakeboard Club (OSWC). We've been giving free Wake lessons every Thursday to the local kids to try to spread the stoke. So far everyone has been very excited about it and we've been able to lock down some sponsors for the club including: Xtreme Marine, CWB, Powerhouse Yamaha, Miller Honda, and as soon as I hook up with my new rep Hyperlite should be involved also. <BR> <BR>I learned to stretch before riding in cold water after I pulled a stomach muscle on a simple backroll. <BR> <BR>I got a new CRF50. <BR> <BR>I had my 1-year anniversary. <BR> <BR>I rode 6 days a week for the first time, haven't done all seven yet. <BR> <BR>I found the perfect spot for a rail jam. A friend of mine has some property in-between Lake Nacimeinto and Lake San Antonio with two ponds, one is a mile and half long and the other is about a half mile with a seventy foot gap separating them. Next time I'm out there I'll snap some shots. Then we just got to start building. Anyone game? <BR> <BR>Got to see my good old buddy Jeff Frew twice now since I've been here. One of the times his was with Team Xtreme Marine and Mr. West Coast Camps Mike Schwenne! It sure was really cool to see you guys. <BR> <BR>But anyways blah blah blah.... <BR> <BR>Here's some pics of my Uncle Fred and new riding buddy Rick Garcia. <BR> <BR>Rick <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335386.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335387.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335388.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335389.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335390.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335391.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335392.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335393.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335394.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>Fred Escalera <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335395.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335396.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335397.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335398.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>My favorite shot of the year so far <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/335399.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR> <BR>No pics of me haven't had anyone on the boat that I trust with a camera yet this season (hint hint...Bug...Joe...when are you coming to visit?). I'm glad to finally have time for WW again. I will contribute as much as my dail-up will allow. Check the Non-Wake Discussion for some new threads soon.

brodie_chaboya 06-13-2006 10:03 PM

stanfield 06-14-2006 5:14 AM

Looks like your Uncle is throwing down. Out of curiousity, how old is he?

antbug 06-14-2006 8:13 AM

Shawn ~ For sure bro. I need to come and see the Sanger wake 1st hand. I'll give you a call and see what weekend are good for you and Laurie.

innov8 06-14-2006 8:37 AM


wakestar8878 06-14-2006 4:02 PM

Stanfield - He is 42. He was three time Master Champion and one time Vetrens Champion in the Canyon Lake Wakeboard Club Series. He has an array of tricks in his bag including: Air Krypts, Half Cab Rolls, etc.

dakid 06-14-2006 4:04 PM

air krypt, as in a raley to fakie w/o using the wake?

teamvaldez 06-14-2006 4:10 PM

great to see your name on the board again Shawn and great to see your Uncle Fred ON a board. Contest this saturday, gonna be there??? Also wake games next week, would be great to see the Escaleras represent!

kevin_garduno 06-14-2006 6:39 PM

Shawn, that slider idea sounds perfect. I'm down in slo, a college student at Poly, and I know several people including myself and my roommates who would be stoked to get down on that. They work out at West Coast Camps. Also, I believe you know my buddy Steve Hiltscher if I'm not mistaken. Let me know if the rail jam comes to pass. Thanks, <BR> <BR>Kevin Garduno <BR><a href="mailto:kgarduno@gmail.com">kgarduno@gmail.co m</a>

socalwakepunk 06-15-2006 6:33 AM

Joe - I would guess that it would be Air to Air Krypt (or Square Krypt). Not sure if it is correct for Krypts, but people often forget that the full name for a Raley is an Air Raley. <BR> <BR>Shawn - It was a blast to hang out with you and Fred!! Really envious of you for your new locaction, and the fact that you guys pretty much get to own Naci. Fred's VLX rocks (as does your V210). Some great pictures, I know that is just a teaser, can't wait to see more. Tell Freddy I said thanks for the Black Flys, will be rocking them at the comp this weekend in his honor. Say hey to everyone up there for us. Cindy, the kids, and everyone @ CLWC say what up!!!!

ballsdeep 06-15-2006 7:34 AM

shawn- what time do you teach kids on thurs? <BR> <BR>I'll up in oak shores from 6/16 to 6/23. I would like to check out your club. I have a few kids.

big_ed_x2 06-15-2006 7:48 AM

welcome back bro,but can I ask.....back where?? <BR> <BR>Back to Naci or back to LA?

lizzyb 06-15-2006 7:58 AM

Um.. I think he means back on WakeWorld? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

big_ed_x2 06-15-2006 8:08 AM

thanks for clearing that up smart ass.Sorry if that was a stupid question but I didn't think internet access was that big of a deal.

stephan 06-15-2006 9:05 AM

It is when you live in the sticks like Shawn does. Seriously they are 25 miles from Paso Robles and the only internet they can get is either satellite or dial up. Oak Shores(where Shawn lives) is on the complete opposite side of the lake from the main marina, it ends right where the Narrows begins if you need a perspective on how far out they are.

super_air 06-15-2006 9:22 AM

Shawn-Stephan, I will be up this weekend to my house,come by or we will see you out on the water.

wakestar8878 06-15-2006 2:41 PM

Ant - You are welcome anytime. Let me know what works for you. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Robyn - I don't think we'll be making it. We are trying to finish the house we're working on, but hopefully we'll be able to make it down soon. <BR> <BR>Kevin - We just need some people to get together and do some planning, buy some materials and start building. The is also a pump so you can even raise and lower the level of the ponds. There is also plenty of land so you could pull with a jet ski, ATV, or winch. It would definitely be dope. <BR> <BR>Jeff - Always a pleasure. Sorry we stole you away from your crew for so long. <BR> <BR>JC - This week we are canceling lessons due to my cousin's graduation. But give me a call at the #'s above if you want to hook-up and ride. <BR> <BR>Heavy - WHY THE F*CK DON'T YOU RETURN MY CALLS YOU SON OF A .....!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Ceasar - See you soon!

stephan 06-15-2006 2:49 PM

I sent you an email Shawn. Pretty much the gist of it is I graduated Saturday &amp; have been busy with that and Senior Project stuff, lame. Secondly, Amber dumped my ass and I've been a little low. Plus I moved to a new house. I got your call two seconds ago, but am working, I'll call you around 4. Just super busy and now I'm heading out of town for two weeks or so, off to Havasu &amp; then backpacking in the Sierras. <BR> <BR>PS - I still love you <BR> <BR>Duno - Hows Danville? Do you know Craig Parlton?

fly135 06-15-2006 2:49 PM

I was hoping you'd answer Joe's question.

kevin_garduno 06-15-2006 4:46 PM

Danville is lame. No need to say any more than that. I'm coming back to san luis tonight. Never heard of Craig Parlton, but I also have no friends, so that's not surprising. Shawn, Steve's a weiner, that's why he doesn't return your calls.

big_ed_x2 06-15-2006 6:39 PM

Big heavy,I didn't want to make it sound that way,I just wasn't on WW for a few months and thought I missed something. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>WELCOME BACK SHAWN,WW wasn't the same without you the time I was on it!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

wakestar8878 06-17-2006 10:57 AM

John - TackleBerry answered Joe's question. The name of an Air Raley to fakie is an Air Krypt. Both tricks have "air" as a prefix to the name although you still utilize the wake in both tricks normally. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

fly135 06-17-2006 12:03 PM

Shawn, I wanted to hear it from you. I always thought that adding "air" in front of the trick meant what Joe said. I seen the roll2revert done that way but never a raley. So what is the correct terminology for doing it w/o the wake?

greatdane 06-17-2006 12:13 PM

What lake is that in the pics? Is that NACI? <BR> <BR>Looks nice but I hear that it is a wave pond on every weekend. Is that true?

socalwakepunk 06-18-2006 11:30 AM

Air to Air Raley, or "Square" raley. Usually done in a turn.

wakestar8878 06-18-2006 2:12 PM

Ed - Thanks buddy! When are we gonna hook up again? <BR> <BR>GD - Yup the weekends look like the 405 freeway. But when you live and work here you are bound to get some good water. I just wait for all the tourist to leave on Sunday and then I own the lake for the rest of the week. It really works out quite nicely. <BR> <BR>John - TackleBerry is right again. The man knows his stuff...and who can argue that?

big_ed_x2 06-18-2006 2:39 PM

It's been too long but the good part about it is,I can somewhat make my schedule so I'll just have to avoid the 405 on the weekends or just bring my jet-ski!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Any plans on hitting the Delta up anytime soon??

dakid 06-18-2006 11:14 PM

ed, no disrespect, but what happened to riding the delta all the time?

big_ed_x2 06-19-2006 10:24 AM

None taken but this mofo needs to make money and Disco bay is not the place at this time.I rode the Delta as much as I could have in the time I was there but I still needed 2nd and a 3rd.peoples schedule was a little off!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>ohh well,maybe I'll meet some more people that could ride weekdays more.
