Greetings from Central Florida. The 140's first stop was the Winter Park chain of lakes. You know as much as I wanted to ride this board first my 8 yo son is a big Murray fan. So I thought more of the history of the board's maiden voyage should be on someone that will remember this all his life ( &amp; hopefully inspire him to reach for greater heights) Shaun I hope you don't get upset ,But hey if a Grom can ride it must be sweet! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/562680.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by otown_dave on March 28, 2008)

I will be delivering the board by hand to CJ in Palm harbour on Sunday to save on shipping time &amp; to meet someone new from wakeworld. (If the pictures need to be on a link to save space go ahead)...Thank you Murray for thinking of this...Dave.

da_kamp 03-29-2008 12:09 AM

sweet, can't wait for it to make it's way out here...........

I don't want to sound like a goober, but this whole thing is really cool and makes me proud to be a part of the wakeboarding communtity. Mad props to Shaun for being such a stand up guy and Hype for supporting the whole thing. <BR> <BR>Can't wait for it to show up on my door <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> Keep up the pics and posts on the 140's progress!

garret_s 03-29-2008 2:10 PM

question: what happens is someone goes huge, and the board snaps! Does everyone else have to ride it with a split down the middle?

kana12 03-29-2008 3:17 PM

dont go that big !!!!!

wakebrdr38 03-29-2008 3:20 PM

first ride is behind a 2001! that is awesome!!!

hawk7 03-29-2008 3:54 PM

Garret I doubt that board would be likely to snap, looks thick in the center.

02ssv 03-29-2008 5:18 PM

Dave, What time are you going to get here? Let me know ASAP so I can plan my work schedule. <BR>321-947-1691 CJ

johnsvt 03-29-2008 7:20 PM

Very cool

jwr 03-29-2008 11:51 PM

Garret, it's a Hyperlite, they don't break... I read it..... in a book.

otown_dave 03-30-2008 8:53 AM

Were Heading to CJ'S in Palm Harbour for the drop off!!! Had a great time on the board<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>....Dave.

shaun_murray 03-30-2008 6:03 PM

SWEET! Sorry for the caps, but I am pretty pumped this is already going really well. Chris met me at OWC yesterday morning so he should be shredding soon. thank dave and glad you had a good time with the family. Boards break. Not that often, but if something happens, it will be a bummer, but let's hope it goes well. We'll cross that bridge if we get there. I have to keep up with who it's going to next. will figure that out soon.

02ssv 03-30-2008 6:56 PM

The 140 has made it's way to the west coast of Florida. Big thanks to Dave for driving it to my work and meeting me. I plan on riding it in the morning here on lake tarpon. I have to say the board looks bad a$$. I will take some pics tomorrow and post later.

mucktoerider 04-01-2008 6:51 AM

CJ...What did you think of the ride?

02ssv 04-01-2008 5:23 PM

Well I just got back in it's 8:20 pm and rode it again tonight for 2 more sessions. I think the board tracks super well and is very fast. It's very easy to take big out into the flats. Lots of pop and easy to control. I'm a fan. I haven't been on a Murray board in about 10 years and am kicking myself now. I do need a new board and I think this board is it. <BR> <BR>Thanks again Shaun for the chance to demo this. It's all packed up and shipping in the am.

mucktoerider 04-01-2008 6:12 PM

Cj...my feelings exactly...you described the ride very well. I absolutely dig my new rig. Just wanted to have others opinions. I can not believe how well this board rides. Everyone that gets a chance to ride this...will love it.

onthewatermo 04-02-2008 7:06 AM

This board seems to be moving pretty quickly and I had my name/address fairly high up on the list...there is no need to ship it to MO this early in the season so I respectfully request to be bumped down until May/June.

caseman1322 04-02-2008 7:29 AM

I put my address in but I didn't know of any list. Where is the list? I'm curious to see where I am or if I'm actually on it

goofyboy 04-02-2008 7:52 AM

after florida is done, us Texas boys are already riding. we'll take a spin!

02ssv 04-02-2008 8:50 AM

The board is on the UPS truck on it's way to your door Reese. Enjoy.

era3 04-02-2008 9:02 AM

sweet! I will let you know when i get it. I hope my replacement bindings come in today or I will be on the old 30/60s <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> I can't wait.

trickyboarder08 04-02-2008 9:57 AM

yea, where is this list, i'm curious to see where I am. I'll take Cason's spot.

denverd1 04-02-2008 10:11 AM

b.kee check out the list thing. we need to hook up and ride when it makes its way to Texas.

shaun_murray 04-02-2008 6:08 PM

Good deal CJ. I will let it slide that it took you 10 years to try my board, just glad you did. Thanks for taking the time and thanks again Dave for driving it to his work! All too cool. 145 is with Greg Gifford right now. wait, i need to start a 145 post. I will tell greg to do that. thanks again everyone for checking in with the progress. Shaun

otown_dave 04-02-2008 6:11 PM

Hey Shaun, I'll take that dinged up 140 off your hands<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

shaun_murray 04-02-2008 6:20 PM

Dave, thanks for asking, but I took it to OWC and left it in the office for people to try out there. told them to let whoever ride it, but keep it to less than 30 minutes a rider. wonder if anyone rode it?

02ssv 04-03-2008 8:11 AM

I think the last one I rode was the one with the VW on the top.

era3 04-04-2008 7:03 PM

Got home and the board was here! Not only that but my new binding were in. I knew the board would get here between today and monday but was bummed because I had to put the boat in the shop this morning I thought I would not get a chance to ride it and have to send it on. But thank to Jody at FL Inboards I got the boat back in one day. I had to replace the starter and the water pump but he said it was going to be the middle of the week before the Pump came in! I told him about the board and he took a pump off his own boat for me to get back in the water this weekend! I will not get out tomorrow but should get out on sunday after church. The board looks sick and I cant wait to get out on it.

rvh3 04-04-2008 8:02 PM

Awesome service, great to hear!

badassstang2006 04-05-2008 6:04 AM

so where is the board located now? also is it going to make it to kansas

otown_dave 04-05-2008 6:17 AM

All you have to do is see who posted that they have it &amp; click on their profile.. Right now it's in Port St. Joe

garret_s 04-05-2008 7:40 AM

Jason...kansas? You really plan on riding in 40 degree water right now? <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

shaun_murray 04-05-2008 2:41 PM

thanks Reese and big thanks to Jody at Fl Inboards! have a good time on the water, but a better time at church! <BR>shaun

badassstang2006 04-05-2008 3:28 PM

hey garret we have been riding for the last month, actually i just now put the boat away from are sets that we took today. and the water is 40 its 50s

onthewatermo 04-07-2008 6:36 AM

I would like to retract my previous post about waiting to ship the board to MO...bring it on anytime as our drysuits are in. The crew up here is really looking forward to it.

trdon 04-07-2008 12:24 PM

where is the list? I want to know where I am at.

era3 04-07-2008 7:08 PM

Hey Shaun, who do i need to send it to. Looks like Blake Sasser is the closest to me. I want to get it back on the road tomorrow. <BR> <BR>I will post some pics and what i thought of the board in a bit.

xbones 04-08-2008 5:31 AM

I'm pretty close to Sasser (Alabama) and I'm just after him on the "Official" post...Bring that thing to 'bama <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>!!

pnichols 04-08-2008 6:37 AM

Where is the updated list?

nu2dagam 04-08-2008 12:20 PM

Where is the list? A few of us have asked and cant seem to find it.

xbones 04-08-2008 12:55 PM

The last thing I saw was a map of all the locations wanting the 140 on the original "official" post. It only had the first 20 or so names and addresses on it. I haven't seen one since then... <BR> <BR>I think the idea is to just send it to the closest "pin" location on the map...but since we don't have an updated map...that seems to be a problem <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

era3 04-08-2008 4:49 PM

Ok guys the board was shipped out to day on its way to GA to Daniel Bennet. There is not an updated map but from what they said it will make its way through the SE starting on the east coast. So it looks like GA, the carolinas, and AL but from there I have no idea.

goride 04-08-2008 4:58 PM

if it comes back to the nor-cal delta any way i can bum a ride off one of you guys. Im really intrested in the murray 140 or ill end up getting the cwb faction or LF shane.

era3 04-08-2008 8:16 PM

Ok here are a few pics my wife took. She has not quite got the picture taking thing down. We forgot the camera on Sunday so this is on monday with 2 people in the boat. I am a big dude that would normally ride the 145 but I wanted everyone in our crew to ride it so I went with the 140. I was very impressed. Thank you shaun for putting this thing together, the closest shop we have to demo is 5 to 6 hrs away. Since this is the tracking post I won't write a full review but I will in the boards section. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/566444.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/566445.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/566446.jpg" alt="Upload">

bamacpa 04-09-2008 5:19 AM

I hear you Luker. The BAMA boys are ready. Maybe Shaun is letting each person know where to send it next. If so, that's cool. Maybe there is a map with the board. At this point to me it's a mystery on who gets it next but I'm sure it's under control.

era3 04-09-2008 6:21 AM

yea I got an email telling me a few options of where to send it to. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by era3 on April 09, 2008)

giff 04-09-2008 5:27 PM

I had the 145 and Shaun pretty much let me send where I wanted. I looked at all of the people on the pay it forward thread and sent it to the guy who I thought was the closest. It is pretty loose. By the way Reese, the 145 is sweet. I am also a big guy (205). I definitely am hoping to get the board this summer. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by giff on April 09, 2008)

sdahockey21 04-09-2008 5:28 PM

Ah the ditch.... we might try to get another local riders thing together Reese. Sometime this may. I will let you know

wake2wake103 04-09-2008 8:17 PM

I got home and the board was waiting on me. Thanks Reese. I am going to ride it tomorrow or friday and get it passed on. Looks sick. I cant wait.

era3 04-10-2008 6:58 AM

Make sure to look closely at the pin stripping! Interesting to say the least. <BR> <BR>SA, let me know. You guys are more than welcome to come ride on this side we ride every weekend.

bbking 04-10-2008 8:14 PM

Looks like I'm next!!!

trdon 04-14-2008 9:45 PM

so am I correct in saying there is no "list" for where it is headed?

xbones 04-18-2008 9:07 AM

This thread has died...bump.

dppaneig 04-18-2008 10:47 AM

I was thinking the same thing, where is the board?

nu2dagam 04-18-2008 12:03 PM

I am not sure where it is now, but Brett B., North Carolina is a short trip for the baord to make from Georgia. I think I am going to be taking my first pull this weekend : ) Should be 80 degree air temp and close to 70 on the water temp : )

pnichols 04-18-2008 2:27 PM

Josh Busby, was the one making the list. <BR><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/555999.html?1207987344" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/555999.html?1207987344</a> From what I can gather there has not been an updated list. I'm assuming that someone may have figured that there is enough people on the list already.

trdon 04-18-2008 7:43 PM

Kinda the point. I am on the list ahead of people who have gotten it. Not saying I wanted it now because we still have ice on lakes here but I would like to know when it is coming my way because I want to hook up my MN brothers and get a day set up to try it out.

wake2wake103 04-18-2008 8:00 PM

Brett had it last. There is no "list" of order. Paul was right about the original. The board is just going by geographical location to minimize shipping costs. Brett should have passed it on by now. And the next person should be about to give it up, because I gave it to Brett on Saturday. Soon as there are no more people in Atlanta, I am sure it will be headed you way pretty soon Jonathan.

bbking 04-18-2008 9:42 PM

I gave it off to Britt, not sure when he's riding it... Sorry, I tried to find this thread to say something but I couldn't. <BR> <BR>Dan and Britt were awesome guys and it was nice to meet some other riders in Georgia!

xbones 04-20-2008 7:09 AM

I was thinking about coming home to ATL next weekend (25th) so if you guys want to pass it along to the Alabama crowd without having to ship it I'll meet you somewhere to pick it up. And possibly catch a set on your boat <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>I'm sure there are several riders in ATL so if its not ready to pass along I understand. Just let me know... <a href="mailto:dlluker@yahoo.com">dlluker@yahoo.com</a>

06outbackv 04-20-2008 5:38 PM

Dont forget about the Tennessee riders

btr1 04-21-2008 2:49 PM

There isn't a master list accompanying the board. I think most people are sending to people close to them on the original list (by the way I'm sending it out tomorrow to Chris Shakespeare). <BR> <BR>Someone (Shaun?) should make a master list if the board is supposed to be shipped around according to when people signed up instead of the current person just picking someone off the list. <BR> <BR>By the way, even though the weather didn't cooperate (winds 10-15 mph) I took the board out over the weekend along with some friends. I was really impressed with the pop although I didn't get to ride it much (I wasn't supposed to be riding at all since I am ACL-less in my left knee but I couldn't pass up the chance). <BR> <BR>A couple other guys rode it as well and both were impressed with the ride especially once they rode it finless.

otown_dave 04-21-2008 4:49 PM

If you go by who's on the list "First" Then It will spend more time traveling than on the water, Plus she shipping cost will increase with the added distance. It should hit the Southern - Western areas before even thinking about a trip up north. Even if Josh did not update the map look on the list for someone close to you. For those up north , Have the board when you can enjoy it&amp; not freezing<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

onthewatermo 04-21-2008 6:54 PM

We're not freezing in MO...just stoked about getting to demo the board (and trying to learn to properly set my axis on a HS/BS 3)...Don't lose sight of the the fact that at some point this summer, be it sooner or later, a brand new board from Mr. Murray is going to arrive at our doorsteps with no expectations other than ride it, enjoy it, and pass it on...I for one don't care if we pass it clockwise or counter, I'm just happy to be in the rotation

shaun_murray 04-22-2008 5:49 AM

doing my best to keep the boards moving. trying to keep it on the water, like dave said. will take a look for where to send the 35 and 40 next. glad everyone is enjoying it when they get it. gotta go, only a few minutes before I go out and ride. getting ready for wakegames this weekend. <BR>who has the 40 now?

btr1 04-22-2008 11:10 AM

Shaun, the 140 is being shipped out today to Chris Shakespeare in Sugar Hill GA. I'll be forwarding the tracking number to the email provided in the notebook included with the board.

atlmobiuslsv 04-24-2008 9:37 AM

according to my wife it arrived last night.. i get back in town friday.. so i will get to use it for sat and sunday the off it goes to....??? where do i need to send it next.. i am stoked to try this board out... awsome idea! <BR> <BR>thanks

bamacpa 04-24-2008 11:19 AM

Chris, I would suggest sending it to someone in south Alabama before it goes too much further north. Wink, wink..... Just to save on shipping of course. Luker said he would be in Atlanta soon, so that could be a definite option. <BR> <BR>Have fun with the board. We're definitely looking forward to riding it.

nu2dagam 04-24-2008 11:26 AM

What exactly is too much north : ) We are all southerners buddy. Beginning of the summer, end of the summer, either way I get my first pull tomorrow on my new to me 1999 Launch. It has been close to three years since I have been in the water (wakeboarding), that Murray may end up hurting me : ) Yall just let me know when you want it to end uo in NC. Is anyone else from NC?

astonestreet 04-24-2008 2:36 PM

Jonathan, <BR>NC here. Ride at Blewes and Lake Norman. how about you?

nu2dagam 04-25-2008 5:21 AM

I ride the Lower Neuse River. Live in New Bern. River temp is approximately 70 and the air today is 80. I am out of here at noon.

atlmobiuslsv 04-28-2008 7:09 AM

i am sending the board up the east coast... its going to south carolina. it going to john keenan.

astonestreet 04-28-2008 8:04 AM

John, <BR> <BR>I know of Three riders here in NC that are on the list. I Dont know what part of SC you are in But I live in Charlotte so if you would like to meet up Im sure we could work something out. <BR> <BR>Let me know, <BR>Austin

nu2dagam 04-28-2008 10:56 AM

Oh lord, it is getting closer. I can smell it. We went out on Friday. Surface temp was nice, 5 feet down was a little brisk. Still an all in all good day. Got pulled by the coast guard. My boy that was driving my boat had never driven an inboard before. The coast guard is just 10-15 feet away about to toss us a line and he stomps the Supra in reverse tossing my other buddy in the floor board. Needless to say, that was the story of the night over a couple beers. I can tell it is going to be a good summer. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by nu2dagam on April 28, 2008)
