success after 4 weeks, 2002 v230 sanger, 1540lbs in the rear locker, no other weight and only a few people ... awesome wake that seems to hold up in the delta just about anywhere its over 5 ft ... 330lb man surfed no rope behind the boat on a 2003 green inland surfer 6.0 ... boards i tried hyperlite landlock, broadcast, cwb ride, ronix stage ... im sure the huge fat wave had lots to do with my success, but as everyone here seems to agree the mass produced boards dont perfrom at all for me or my family and friends ... so all you guys posting about weighing 225 and the such take it from me get a good solid made wide board and get a fat wake and you can do it ... took me 2 days on the inland surfer to do it ... hopefully ill be weighing 225 in the spring!!

lancesaville 08-05-2009 6:52 PM

gunz 08-05-2009 8:19 PM

ragboy 08-05-2009 10:25 PM

Where b da pics frank? ;-)

wofrankwo 08-06-2009 2:32 AM

the side lockers on my boat are huge ... i was able to fit 2 - 550lb bags and 1 - 440lb bag ... ive been told filling the front stock bag of 500lbs will make the wake longer and cleaner ... will fill that tomorrow and see ... got 1 pic tonight from my daughters phone and cant make the pic small enough to post and it shows the volume of the wake ... ill post pics by friday for sure

wofrankwo 08-06-2009 1:08 PM

heres from the phone ... sometimes the vertical wall of the wave was intimidating ( deeper hole? ) ... this is in 14' of water .... <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/723578.jpg" alt="Upload">

ragboy 08-06-2009 1:21 PM

Wow, that's looking good frank. How is Chris liking the SMED? He looks good.

wofrankwo 08-06-2009 1:43 PM

he loves that board!! hes getting close to getting off the top ... almost made his first 360, he gets around but cant catch the wake yet ... laura uses it also and she loves it, not quite as aggressive as chris yet ... they are cutting deep into my surf time LOL ... im going to e-mail you the complete pic from the camera because you can see it better ... going to hogans this sunday so i cant wait to see this in a lake

ragboy 08-06-2009 2:47 PM

That's awesome.

wofrankwo 08-07-2009 2:48 PM

this is for you robert .... this morning we kept the 1540lbs in the rear locker and filled the front stock 500lb .... this made the wave longer and cleaner as everyone told me it would .... we are in the delta and the water is rarely over 14' deep where we boat .... today was a really low outgoing tide and you could really see the difference in the wave .... first pic is of the much longer cleaner wave<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/723781.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>the second pic is me on the rope <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/723782.jpg" alt="Upload"> .... the next pic is no rope!! LOL<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/723783.jpg" alt="Upload"> .... there is no doubt that i need all the WAVE that i can get ... the last pic is backwards before the 360!!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/723784.jpg" alt="Upload">

wofrankwo 08-07-2009 2:50 PM

all i can say is i am happier then hell LOL .... its a good start for an old fat man!!

ragboy 08-07-2009 3:01 PM

That wave is looking really good Frank, great job.

wofrankwo 08-07-2009 3:41 PM

and i just found a new 640lb bag with a built in ice chest of all things in a discount corner at west marine for $99 .... im buying that today to add more weight in the front and see what happens .... if it doesnt do good in the front ill throw it on the seats as the kids love the waterbed seating .... i rarely get lots of people so any and all weight is needed .... plus im starting to think that you cant use too much weight at all .... remember im in the shallow delta and i need big wave in shallow water

80's throwback style

rhawn 08-08-2009 12:52 PM

My whole family gathered around the monitor to check out that vest.

wofrankwo 08-08-2009 1:59 PM

i wore it well in the 80's ive been told .... talk about incentive to lose weight!!! thats one thing about age i lost my ego years ago .... and what is is what is and thats me now .... new boat + old skills + new enthusiasm + exercise = new body? i sure hope so .... should see me fly the wake on my wakeboard LOL

timmyb 08-08-2009 2:28 PM

That wave is looking almost as good as the jacket Frank! LOL! Keep up the good work! That pocket looks like its a mile long!

saceone 08-11-2009 5:21 AM

loving the jacket!!! <BR> <BR>congrats and good luck with the weightloss. I have lost 30 pounds in 4 months and I feel brand new.

wofrankwo 08-11-2009 7:53 AM

thanks for the kind words and support!! got a new jacket finally .... and dennis set me up with a board i can surf on 24/7 .... ive already dropped over 20lbs and surfing almost every day im hoping to shred and then shred LOL!!

caskimmer 08-11-2009 8:07 AM

congratulations. good luck and keep it up (on both the riding and weight loss)

hatepain 08-11-2009 10:40 AM

Sweet! What TWP board did you get?

wofrankwo 08-11-2009 11:02 PM

they are making me a 6'6" cruiser .... the board dennis is letting me use is 6'3" x 24" .... looks like the front half of my 11'6" tandem surfboard LOL .... but man i get up and throw the rope 1st thing and can surf all day on it .... tonight about 45 minutes on it and i was able to do tail slides and turning up the wake and cutting down .... surfing back into the wake after losing it .... he gave me some great tips that has helped tremondously .... i wonder why i cant get one of the little boards made weight proportion and size .... ive got a few years of longboarding under my belt so its coming back .... but its incredible to surf at my size and have a ball out behind the boat!!

ragboy 08-11-2009 11:53 PM

Its a 6'6" version of this board. <BR> <BR><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/wakenine/Wake9Cruiser#" target="_blank">http://picasaweb.google.com/wakenine/Wake9Cruiser#</a>
