Does anyone know where I can get a wakeboarding belt buckle? I've been lookin hard for one but I just can't find one.

eternalshadow 04-26-2005 7:37 PM

When you find one, make sure you let Jeff Hill know, his rodeo styles would be down with that.

hillbilly 04-27-2005 4:52 AM

Hear we go.......Glad you made it home Jefe'

allen 04-27-2005 3:08 PM

I run a machine shop If we can get enough peopple that what them I will make a bunch depending on what you want them to look like

jarrod 04-27-2005 3:10 PM

Allen! Whutup!

drewsky24 04-27-2005 3:42 PM

We should definatly consider buying them... CUSTOM.

guido 04-27-2005 4:08 PM

Allen.... Get back to work, sucka.

allen 04-27-2005 5:08 PM

Hows the face, Holyfeild

jarrod 04-27-2005 6:11 PM

HAHAHA <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I have a nice picture!

oldschoolripper 04-27-2005 7:54 PM

A wakebuckle would be tight. Hook it up for us Allen, I'm in. I'm sure somebody on here could come up with a sick design.

braap 04-27-2005 8:00 PM

that would be clutch dude. That would be so sick struttin around with a huge wake buckle!!!

cool_dude 04-27-2005 8:12 PM

I'd buy two for twenty if it had an awesome design, if your serious about making it then send me an email and we'll work it out <a href="mailto:spankeryan@hotmail.com">spankeryan@ho tmail.com</a>

twitch 04-27-2005 10:21 PM

im in... ill buy one

allen 04-28-2005 8:49 AM

cool give me a few weeks or so, My shop is slammed right now but I am down to do a bunch of these. who ever has a design or idea send it to me and I'll make somthing it happen.

fullonsalesgrp 04-28-2005 9:39 AM

I'm down do you need a drawing ? a photo? or jpg? <BR>itch

wakeforce139 04-28-2005 9:53 AM

Awesome idea, count me in as well, take as much time as you need, I'm sorta broke at school right now

allen 04-28-2005 10:01 AM

send me anything that you got

wakestar8878 04-28-2005 10:06 AM

I'm in. <BR> <BR>Hit me up...... <a href="mailto:wakestar@gmail.com">wakestar@gmail.co m</a>

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 10:09 AM

that'd be SICK! I'm gonna start working on a design right away! I'm down with that for sure! I know of a couple guys taht would buy one!

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 10:10 AM

Is it feasible to think that maybe the sickest design gets a free one? <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>. Post your designs in here maybe, that'd be sweet!

allen 04-28-2005 10:43 AM

the design has to be be able to be made on a machine so nothing to complicated I don't want to have to spend 4 days programing this thing if you know what I mean. I don 't need to make money off of this stuff but I don't want to lose money. My machine don't run on charity. <BR> So ya best design gets a free one but tell any body that might want one because I need to see if it going to be feasable, Making one or two will cost me a grip and I don't think anybody wants a $100 belt buckle. <BR> Lets do this post your ideas here I'll see what I can do. I need to know who many people are really down too!

oldschoolripper 04-28-2005 10:48 AM

I am down if the price is $20 or less

polkaking27 04-28-2005 10:49 AM

I'm in too... <BR> <BR>lets post the designs' here so we can all see them and agree on one. <BR> <BR>Allen, thanks for taking this on, I hope you can make a little money off this, not just break even <BR>

allen 04-28-2005 11:23 AM

it's cool just please be patient and I hope that they will be about $20 or not many peple will want them tell every one and we will see what happens. Yah post them here

ivyrider 04-28-2005 11:26 AM

I'm down, if under $20.

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 11:39 AM

I think i'll probably take 3

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 11:43 AM

Allen, I would even bet that stores would get in on this. I'm sure there are NONE out there. For a little business venture if you felt so inclined, making them for hyperlite/liquid force, etc. I don' tknow why they might not get on this...but stores for sure buying generic boarding buckles i'm sure would be a hit!

wakestar8878 04-28-2005 12:12 PM

I think a side view of a hoochie glide would be SICK!

jarrod 04-28-2005 12:38 PM

Might be a little cheaper to make a die and stamp them out huh?

allen 04-28-2005 12:47 PM

If we stamp them they have to be super simple 2D like but yha they whould be way cheeper

wakeboardbum 04-28-2005 1:09 PM

im in if the cost is under 20 thatd be kick ass

erlingiii 04-28-2005 1:15 PM

i'm in just want to see the design

richmondrider 04-28-2005 1:17 PM

Count me in for 1

byerly137pro 04-28-2005 1:37 PM

count me into it sounds sweet

guido 04-28-2005 2:04 PM

looks like this thing is going to have to happen. Just got off the phone with Allen, looks like we need to incorporate a bottle opener in it. Keep the ideas coming. <BR>

antbug 04-28-2005 2:16 PM

Evan ~ a belt buckle with a bottle opener sound like a good idea. Hell it beats opening your beer with you sandal <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>.

sliderfreak 04-28-2005 2:27 PM

im in for 2. by far the sickest idea ever! <BR>straight up <BR> <BR>later

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 2:35 PM

working on a couple ideas right now. if it were to say something on the buckle, maybe one word or soemthing, what should it say?

ivyrider 04-28-2005 3:13 PM


bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 3:47 PM

Hey guys. Here is one idea. Let's hear the feedback. I don't mean to scare you allen, just not sure what the restrictions might be on this. If any colour is involved, etc. The grain is just for fun...just played with it a bit, and the lighting just to show if maybe it was able to be shined or not. Let's hear any idea, i won't take anything a bad way, so feel free to criticize! <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/225964.jpg" alt="First Draft Idea">

allen 04-28-2005 3:59 PM

Not scared, exited I think that this could turn out good. What program are you using to draw with. <BR>Al

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 4:01 PM

I just did that quickly in photoshop. What would work better? Do you need it to be any certain PSI? Can you do it in different colours like that and kinda chromed? I think we have quite a few buyers! :-)

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 4:03 PM

Going home from work now. Allen, if you need to talk about this for any reason, you can give me a call @ 416-821-5299...from toronto. I'll check the things later tonight. I kidna like the look...it's in the shape of a board but very wide in case anybody didn't notice ;-). Any feedback welcomed!

cool_dude 04-28-2005 4:05 PM

Ok, I don't meen to start a party and kill it. But it was my idea. Why do you guys get to profit off of it. That's really not fair. I still want one but I wunna talk to you. <a href="mailto:spankeryan@hotmail.com">spankeryan@ho tmail.com</a>

allen 04-28-2005 4:08 PM

i can use this if you can get it into a an .iges or .sat format. I have an idea how we could get color in it and chrome I whould have to see how much my chromer would cost. We could polish them just about any thing becaus ethey are going to be made out of billet alum. (that's cool a billet alum belt buckle) <BR> Just a word the CIE guys and I are working on a CIE buckle as well. the always come up with great ideas. <BR>later

jarrod 04-28-2005 4:12 PM

Spanke, you just asked where you could get one. Now you know!

cool_dude 04-28-2005 4:13 PM

well, I got screwed over. You know it to. I've tried to make some but people in my town arnt very coperative.

jarrod 04-28-2005 5:01 PM

How did you get screwed over? You didn't event the belt buckle. You didn't even present a design.

guido 04-28-2005 5:02 PM

Not to rain on your parade homey, but you gave the idea out on the internet. We already had somehting in the works, so we would have made it available soon anyway, but in the future if you have an idea and you want to market it.....DONT PUT IT OUT ON THE INTERNET. <BR> <BR>Anyway a belt buckle isn't really a new idea, its not like anyone is going to corner the market or put a patent on it. <BR> <BR>Allen.... We need to make sure that it is compatible with the leather snap on type belts. Being that it would be machined I guess you'd have to figure out a way to make a loop in the back for the belt to slide through, but you're way more on top of this than me. We should make them big and shiny as <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> like the idea of making them shaped like a wakeboard. I'd sport one for sure.

ivyrider 04-28-2005 5:18 PM

Yea, you will have to figure out the hook too, to go in the belt holes. Maybe rig something up to weld onto the back? Wonder if a horse tack shop or possibly a black smith would have the parts needed? <BR> <BR>Horvy: good job! Looks nice. I like the shape.

allen 04-28-2005 5:28 PM

I got the back all figured out every things gonna be pimp. <BR> <BR>Spanke.... I'm not screwin anybody over if you refer back to the beginning I said that I wasn't doning this to make a ton of monney I just need to pay for my time. The opertunity presented it self to hook up some fellow riders and do somthing fun out of my shop. <BR> What I'm trying to say to you is Half of nothing is... well.... nothing!!! <BR> Machine shops don't run them selfs and $20 a buckle might not even cover the COST of producing them. I have to pay for materials, electricity, labor and coating. So I'm not screwin ya over just trying to hook you up with the buckle that you asked for. <BR> also if it was your Idea where is you design maybe we'll use it. <BR> -LATE-

if you could get a pic of a guy doin a hoochie,raley,911,batwing,or somethin sweet into a buckle of that shape or the shape of horvy's would be sweet i don't think "ride" looks good though but thats my opinion im def want a wakebuckle <BR> <BR><!--attachment: BELT_BUCKLE_DESIGN-225999.unk*attachment_icon.gif*image/bmp*136.3**BELT+BUCKLE+DESIGN%2ebmp --><center><table border=1><tr><td><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/icons/attachment_icon.gif" align=left alt="image/bmp"><br><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/BELT_BUCKLE_DESIGN-225999.unk" target="_blank"><b>BELT BUCKLE DESIGN.bmp</b></a> (136.3 k)</td></tr></table></center><!--/attachment-->

Count me in for one as well....

ktmwakeboarder 04-28-2005 6:42 PM

The buckle shown earlier by "Horvy" has a cool design in it, but it would be really rad if the buckle itself was in the shape of a wakeboarder. As mentioned earlier, a mid-raley design would be hella sweet. <BR> <BR>and oh yes baby, I want one too! haha <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

cool_dude 04-28-2005 6:46 PM

I didn't mean I was not goin to buy one. I still think it's a great idea. I really want one to. What I meant to say was if you market it and sell them to store like you were talking about then I want a cut. But other wise, I'll cough up a twenty for one anyday.

gbgonzal138 04-28-2005 6:57 PM

Haha, my friend made me a LF belt buckle, I'll try to get a pic. He's an amature so it isnt the best cut.

gtaussie15 04-28-2005 8:58 PM

I really like horveys idea, that looks nice, im thinking CWB though, instread of RIDE. But the graphic is awesome. Im going to see if my friend can make a demo of that one, just to see what it would look like in person.

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 9:42 PM

Hey all! Glad you're liking the designs! Shelby, very cool design, i like the direction you took it. I just noticed that you took a picture of a guy riding a byerly board which could be a problem. And Robert, having it say "CWB" could cause HUGE problems, so that would probably be out of the question. Not to rain on the idea, but that could cause some huge complications financially for some peeps. As for Spank, Dude, you were asking wher eyou could get one, not that you had the idea of making one, that was allen that did that. I'm not trying to be a <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font>, but everybody else is right. I'm not lookign to get money for this, otherwise i would charge worth design time right? This is for the love and if Allen wanted to market it, the only person that would really get anything for it other than him was the design, whoever that might come from. <BR> <BR>I'm going to rework it tomorrow and see if i can come up with something else, i wasn't too crazy about "RIDE" either..."Freedom" was kinda cool. I'll work away at it again tomorrow. This is gonna be off da hook! That's how we do!!

allen 04-28-2005 9:47 PM

hey Horvy, <BR> Looks great I'll talk to ya tomarrow when we are all spose to be workin. thanks for the sopport on the whole marketing thing every one. <BR>late

bassmanjoshis 04-28-2005 10:13 PM

Meant to also say that i'm still trying to work in an action shot outline like kevin and clay said, but it's tough since it's pretty edgy and i don't want to make things TOO hard for our good friend Allen up there. it's tough to make something look good that interesting too, gotta think of how it would attach to your belt too, i'll try out some more things. also Allen, what program might i use to get those file extensions? Do I need to do it at a higher DPI? Hope not, but i do then i can do it!

bassmanjoshis 04-29-2005 7:17 AM

Hey Allen. Unfortuantely i won't be able to put them into an .iges or saf file, if i gave you a vector based file, like eps or illustrator, would that be alright for you?

allen 04-29-2005 7:58 AM

I can make a jpeg work if you can do that just don't add any shadding or lighting all I need is lines.

bassmanjoshis 04-29-2005 8:17 AM

Hey guys. Here are 3 more for you to take a look at and i'll repost the first, just so you can see them all together. Let's hear some feedback before this "fad" wears off :-).

gtaussie15 04-29-2005 8:33 AM

Yeh, I see what you mean about "CWB". The W2W is really nice. But I still like haveing a graphic. Like just the outline or profile of a raley or hoochie would be sweet.

jarrod 04-29-2005 8:58 AM

Don't use that picture of Parks if you plan to sell them. HO will be all over you.

bassmanjoshis 04-29-2005 9:06 AM

Ya, I figured it wouldnt' be a good idea, but though the idea was cool...just one for #%$!'s and giggles :-). Anybody else? I like the W2W one, i'm gonna try to do a little more to it, to add in a pciture of somekind...i'll try to do it before i leave work today.

jarrod 04-29-2005 9:14 AM

Danny Dean used to have a cool picture of a Hoochie in his profile. That would be a cool shot to model. <BR> <BR>I might have one somewhere.

jmac_04 04-29-2005 9:28 AM

How about an image of a power slide with the water spraying across the buckle?

allen 04-29-2005 9:38 AM

-J- <BR> if you could get it to me in iges form I can work on it now but if only in jepegs I have to have a guy convert it for me. <BR> peace <BR> <BR>Check your E-mail

wakeboardbum 04-29-2005 2:33 PM

sry to double post but i just scrolled to the top of the screen look at the boardco.com ad something like that pic of a huge laid out tail glide like that would be sweet

fly135 04-29-2005 2:55 PM

<i>"What I meant to say was if you market it and sell them to store like you were talking about then I want a cut. But other wise..."</i> <BR> <BR>Spanke, ideas are a dime a dozen. <BR> <BR>I'd be in for a buckle too if it was something like the Raley one. Since they're machined out of billet it'd be nice if the image was somewhat 3D.

cool_dude 04-29-2005 4:27 PM

I think the idea of a backward power slide with the water spray would be pretty nice. I also think a cut out one of some boarder upside down doing sometype of grab would be pretty sweet.

ridehyperlite 04-30-2005 11:35 PM

Horvy, Take your graphic from the ride one and center it a little more and put the double up words on it. I think that would look tight. And i am so down to buy one and know a few peeps and possibly a shop that might be down. <BR> <BR>

drewsky24 05-01-2005 2:44 PM

The ride one is the best idea, Allen you should make it so that the ride and the raley are popping up/3D

maestro 05-01-2005 8:38 PM

Does the photographer of the rider in the "RIDE" design get a portion of the revenues? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> *hint hint*
