They just showed a pretty sweet show on the history channel which went through the history of the wakeboard. The started from the Skurfer the construction processes they used to use. It was a new episode of Boys' Toys on at 10pm Eastern. Very cool to see wakeboarding get as much time on an extreme show as surfing and skateboarding.

NICE!!!! Do u know if it will be on again?!?!? That sounds awesome!

Saw that, it was pretty interesting! Just shows how far this sport has progressed in the last fifteen years! Maybe everybody will ease up a bit on expectations! NOT!

puckinshat 12-02-2003 11:11 PM

I checked it out, it's on on 50 min, 2am eastern. Hope its good enought to stay up until 2 central.

I just watched it. It's a pretty cool show with great segments on the history of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding. I was stoked on the wakeboarding segment with interviews with Tony Finn and Jimmy Redmon. It must be pretty current because it's at their new offices. <BR> <BR>I noticed that no credit was really given for the first compression molded board and they said that most of today's boards are made of graphite composite or aluminum honeycomb. <BR> <BR>The show will air again on Saturday, 12/6 at 5:00 PM ET.

Nice!!! I can't wait to see it! Will it be on the History Channel again? If not what Channel will it be?

wakeworld 12-03-2003 1:36 AM

Yup, History Channel.

I thought that most boards are foam core and they use wood cores as well. Do companies still use honeycomb cores??

wakeworld 12-03-2003 10:13 AM

That's why I mentioned it. Nobody uses honeycomb or graphite any more as far as I know.

so is the name of show boys toys? because there's no show called that under the show listing on the history channel site - but there are episodes of a show called that on their schedule. in addition, there's a show called tactical to practical that has episodes called boys toys...

patrick 12-04-2003 9:44 AM

Looks like Boys Toys is the name of the show and Extreme Gadgets is the episode.

deepstructure 12-04-2003 10:20 AM

wakeworld 12-04-2003 12:12 PM

Something ain't right then cuz my local listing (west coast) say it will be on at 2:00 PM on Saturday.

deepstructure 12-04-2003 12:23 PM

ah, well i was just looking at the historychannel's site, not my local cable listings... <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.historychannel.com/global/listings/listings.jsp?fromDate=6&amp;fromMonth=11&amp;fromY ear=103&amp;NetwCode=THC&amp;View=" target="_blank">http://www.historychannel.com/global/listings/listings.jsp?fromDate=6&amp;fromMonth=11&amp;fromY ear=103&amp;NetwCode=THC&amp;View=</a> <BR> <BR>although this listing does have "Tactical to Practical (Boys' Toys: #10)" at 2pm - were you perhaps seeing that? <BR> <BR>i just checked my local listings and it also shows it for 5p.

wakeworld 12-04-2003 1:53 PM

No, I had the right show. However, I was looking at my DirecTV (Pacific Time Zone) listings. It looks like it's different on cable (2:00 PM). That sucks. Damn, this gets confusing.

xtremebordgurl 12-06-2003 12:19 PM

Just a quick reminder, thats only 3 short hours away!

xtremebordgurl 12-06-2003 4:20 PM

whoa, they had a lot of segments from Metronome, pretty cool show though, I liked the surf and mountain board segments.

bwood 12-06-2003 4:48 PM
