I'm sure she will be great but that wake looks small to me.

I have not really had an opportunity... sorta did at brostock, but the water was just too choppy nearly everywhere (Thanx again Dave for the pulls) <BR> <BR>BUT my friends and i did want to see how far out i could ride and still jump the wakes (toe and heel) on a 18 ft ancient Boston Whaler, lake powell rental boat, with no ballast but 2 people in the boat, and a short ski pole. I rode at 75 ft. i think it was. I have never charged a wake that fast period, especially toeside. I also threw a backroll in for the heck of it and landed it, much to my and everyones surprise. Throwing any kind of trick at full speed like that is intimidating... to me, no matter the wake size. <BR> <BR>sorry for the slight slight tangent of topic... it was the only way i could relate <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>anyone want to come down to powell before it gets cold to give me an opportunity to try this??? ... Maybe i'll get another chance to get one of them "10-12 ft. airs" on my slingshot again, and we can add more witnesses to the short list. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> (half joking half serious)<font size="-2"> but please go easy on me if i only get 6-8... don't crucify me on WW</font> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wakerider111 on September 20, 2008)
