I get my 2009 Moomba catalog today, and I'm carefully studying and enjoying each page when I come to a page with "Moomba Team Riders" as the headline. <BR> <BR>Ok cool. I'm expecting the usual shots of the team... <BR> <BR>There's photos of pro slalom skier Terry Winter, pro wakeboarder Dave Briscoe, pro wakeboarder kyle Schmidt and Russ Wilde. Nice photos of all the athletes. <BR> <BR>Then it catches my eye. Holy Heck!!!! (I didn't really say "heck") <BR> <BR>on page #7, it states: "Pro Wakesurfer Russ Wilde" and with a great photo of Russ shooting the crest of a wave!! <BR> <BR>I couldn't believe it, I had to do a double take to make sure I was seein' what I thought I was seein'. <BR> <BR>Skiers Choice, you sure have come a long ways from the days when we (The American Wakesurfing Association) petionted you to remove the wakesurfing warnings from the websight to now publishing photos of team athletes surfing in your sales catalog. <BR> <BR>I'm all teary eyed and verklempt. You guys make me so proud. <BR> <BR>I love you, man! <BR> <BR>Just out of curiosity, Is this a hint that you have future plans to sponsor pro wakesurfers?

Yes, Jeff. Verklempt <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>My new boat is presently being built - an entirely redesigned 2009 Moomba Outback V. <BR> <BR>Skiers Choice is posting daily progress photos of it on the general forum of their bulletin board. <BR> <BR>Its a thread called "Ed G is expecting". <BR> <BR>The new hull is shorter, wider and deeper and supposed to be a really decent surf boat. Rumour is the ballast bags will fill in 4 minutes! <BR> <BR>Next time you and James are in O-do...call me. <BR> <BR>You can give the new boat a review.
