Hi guys - I need help in figuring out what to get my boyfriend for Christmas! He's a wakeboarder and I'd like to get him a board for Christmas. <BR>I have no clue what type to get him - I think it'd be cool to get him some old school one (he has a bunch of new ones) that he can like hang up as artwork, ya know? <BR>Any ideas of what or how to get one?? <BR>Thanks! <BR>*Dottie*

sidekicknicholas 12-02-2008 3:24 PM

someone had an old one in the X-mas give-a-way thread, just claim that and offer up something else in return

helix_rider 12-02-2008 4:25 PM

We need a little more info if the gift is going to be something he really digs. For example...is he a wakeboard history buff and spends time watching old wake videos? Does he have a favorite rider that he always talks about? Personally, I would not want an old deck to hang on the wall, but would love a wakeboard bench using 'older' (though not necessarily antique old) boards. If he is really into wake, I'll bet you could get him talking about what he would think is really cool just by dropping a subtle conversation starter to see what would interest him.

polkadottie 12-02-2008 8:25 PM

Thanks Loren! <BR>Well... he watches videos of wakeboarding stuff ALL the time, has all the magazines ect. <BR>He owns a Nautique. <BR>I'm pretty sure he likes Shane Bonifay. <BR>He is in love with the new Humanoid stuff. <BR>Also he is a really big out-doorsman - like fishing, bow-hunting, whatever - he's all about it. <BR> <BR>I guess also I'd like to know what would you guys like from the gals you're seeing for Christmas. <BR> <BR> <BR>And thank you to those of y'all who do respond to this... I really appreciate it!

so he's seen the new humanoid stuff? cus im pretty sure they havent released anything. i think it would be sweet to get something like a humanoid board that no one has...wait a second...this post describes me...thats odd lol

polkadottie 12-03-2008 9:55 AM

Kevin, what I meant by the humanoid stuff was that he likes their graphics on their website and some of the boards that were submitted by folks.

devildog_ra 12-03-2008 11:26 AM

just get him a system 2.0 i am sure he will love you forever for this one!!!!!!!! <BR>The System 2.0 is essentially a straight-line cable system that can compliment full size cable park setups for events or as stand-alone rail parks. But the System 2.0 can also be used for private backyard setups because it is the first cable system that is actually portable. And unlike other two tower systems, System 2.0 was designed specifically for wake sports and provides a continuous rideómeaning that you wonít have to drop the handle or stop after one pull down the rail course. <BR><a href="http://www.thewakeparkproject.com/systems/system2.php" target="_blank">http://www.thewakeparkproject.com/systems/system2.php</a>

Sounds like he has been wakeboarding for a while and has probably developed specific equipment preferences. In other words he is probably going to be pretty picky when it comes to wakeboard gear and wouldn't go with that, but here a couple of other ideas. <BR> <BR>Buy a gift certificate or prepay for some wakeboard lessons or a stay at a wakeboard camp. <BR> <BR>Line up the travel and accomodations for you and he to go to a pro wakeboard tourney. <BR> <BR>I don't know where you live, but if he has not been to a cable park, lining up a trip to one of those would be good. <BR> <BR>A nice size pic of you in a Reef ad.

polkadottie 12-03-2008 3:36 PM

Ryan, I'm sure he'd love me forever for that one... what guy wouldn't?? Maybe for his birthday <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>AtTheLake, we're in Texas - just down the street from TSR so he's been there, done that. Plus it still scares me to see him hit rails even though I know he's amazing at it. haha. <BR> <BR>The picture of me in a Reef ad would be pretty awesome, I'm sure he'd just die over that one! Certainly a keepsake, although he'd have to promise not to post it in that Boat Bun thread... <BR> <BR> <BR>Thanks for your help guys! <BR>*Dottie*

shon_g 12-03-2008 5:48 PM

The System 2.0 is SICK...I am getting one!!

otown_dave 12-03-2008 7:15 PM

For Christmas how about a homemade coupon book with "I won't complain when you come home from the lake late because the water turned to butter right as we were leaving &amp; you just had to ride one more time" coupons....<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

polkadottie 12-03-2008 7:26 PM

Hahaha. That's classic David!!!! That will for sure be a stocking stuffer!!!

otown_dave 12-03-2008 7:46 PM

I could use some my self. We don't mean to ,it just happens that way...

wakerider111 12-03-2008 9:43 PM

This boy friend wouldn't be on Wake World at all would he??? <BR> <BR>if so he is probably watching this thread going down, laughing about it<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>as for ideas... you could get <BR>*coupon for humanoid gear in the future <BR>*slingshot gear (pioneered the flex tech in wakeboards... humanoid is a flex board company) <BR>*company wake gear- similar reasons as above, more flex tech <BR>*Box of Fun DVD one of the newest wake DVDs coming out <BR> <BR>OR <BR> <BR>* IF you got MAD artistic skills, just submit a graphic to the art contest on humanoidwake.com and win him a board and some cash and stuff ;)

polkadottie 12-05-2008 12:20 PM

Jeremy... silly boy, don't you think I would be sneaker than that to use my actual name?? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/blush.gif" border=0> <BR>And yes he is on wakeworld but I don't think he's caught on yet... <BR> <BR>But as for the Box of Fun DVD set - that's a very good idea! Thanks! <BR> <BR>Also, I did find something last night while out on the town... it's a black and white photo of the Stevie Ray Vaughn memorial statue that is in Austin - I'm going to have it matted and framed for him. Think he'll like it? I know it isn't wakeboarding stuff but that's just one of his gifts.

ryan_shima1 12-05-2008 3:37 PM

Not much of a diehard wakeboarder if he's on WW and hasn't caught on yet. JK <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

polkadottie 12-09-2008 2:01 PM

Ryan... I wouldn't say he isn't diehard - I'd just say he's a bit oblivious! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>So I've been working on gifts and I for sure used AtTheWake's Reef girl idea and David's coupon book idea... Thank you guys a bunch!!

Ben Kerran 12-09-2008 2:40 PM

Polkadottie- I should have caught on earlier!!! I already told you what I want, but I will re-itterate just in case. <BR> <BR>1. HSE Volume control <BR>2. Blue Inland Surfer <BR>3. Surf rope/handle <BR> <BR>Dottie-Sorry if you are not my wife, but I wanted to cover my bases <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

polkadottie 12-09-2008 6:24 PM

Hahahaha! Smart move! ...guess you'll just have to wait and see on Christmas morning if I am!

maxwake 12-10-2008 8:43 PM

polkadottie 12-11-2008 10:10 AM

Oh, his Nauti already "slammed". We went through the whole fat sack thing last Christmas. haha. Thank you Bobby!!

sidekicknicholas 12-11-2008 10:45 AM

Maybe Bobby will get a gift card for Wakeworld and can pay to advertise

polkadottie 12-26-2008 7:10 PM

SOO it's the day after Christmas... right?? <BR>Wondering how my gifting went?? <BR> <BR>Well I got in contact with Humanoid and Joel hooked me up like none other!!! He sent me a shirt and one of their boards for Kevin (yes, Kevin Hoye from up there - believe me guys this was the HARDEST thing to keep from him for almost a month!) <BR>I'll try to post pictures soon! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
