What song is playing in the video. I like that.

scottnaz 06-24-2010 9:11 PM

Lookin good Beaver!
Is that from today? Saguaro?

ilikebeaverandboats 06-25-2010 9:57 AM

Jason, song is Hunnies by The Holdup. Pretty legit band, kinda like slightly stoopid with a synthesizer.

Scott, thanks man that was from last friday at saguaro. Didnt get out at all this week, was lacking the necessary second and third person haha. Hate when that happens.

Anyone know how I can bump the quality up at all? Next time will be shooting with a vholdr 720p camera (like a gopro but cooler) so that should def help.

nwrider 07-01-2010 6:48 PM

vholder makes a waterproof case now, check it out, it works great

ilikebeaverandboats 07-01-2010 6:52 PM

Actually, got a vholdr, waterproof case, and suction cup mount for my old man. havent used it yet.

duramat 07-01-2010 9:11 PM

How do you like your board is that the 2010 Model? I'm stuck between shredstixx and flyboy.

dennish 07-26-2010 2:12 PM

IMO the Flyboy is a great board. Much easier learning curve. Easier to do rotational tricks. I can ride that board and I weigh about 270

ilikebeaverandboats 07-26-2010 2:19 PM

yea its the 2010 4.8 elevation. I really like it, its fast as hell, fun to ride, definitely takes some time to get used to. I think the flyboy boards look pretty cool but ive never ridden one so I cant really compare them. if i was in the market right now i would be torn between the elevation, the flyboy, and a skim style board. Im starting to think that skim style is a little more fun.

I had a Drew Daniello Carbon Pro on order but I canceled the order because of bad customer service from boardco.com.

22vdrive 07-26-2010 5:07 PM

You look good riding it looks like a sick board to me if you want to sell it and get a skim style I am game!

ilikebeaverandboats 07-26-2010 5:17 PM

I dont think im gonna sell man, if i do ill let you know, but it took forever to get and its pretty fun to ride. Im considering picking up a flyboy or a calibrated next summer, but it all kinda depends, leaning towards a calibrated, but next summer is a long way away haha.

22vdrive 07-26-2010 5:20 PM

Good deal bud, how long did you wait?

ilikebeaverandboats 07-26-2010 5:25 PM

I ordered it beginning of may and didnt get it till the first week of june. I got lucky and they set me up with the elevation for the price of the comp1.

tro 07-26-2010 6:23 PM

Joey: is yours a custom? that's pretty fast to get it, if so...

Yup, it is. I got super lucky with timing, I called right when they were close to getting a batch from the shaper. Good group of guys.

I believe yours was made for a photo shoot and then they sold it. It's super glossy which I have never seen before. Sick board!

Thread on dying surf fins.

tro 07-28-2010 9:04 PM

E: my buddy and I have been talking about riding on the Trinity River, but we haven't gone out there. where do you launch on the river and the lake?

22vdrive 07-29-2010 8:27 AM

tro

I keep my boat in Lake Conroe. I launch at Lakeview Marina on hwy 105. For the Trinity River you have two choices, first you can go to Bethy Creek Resort, or you can launch at the public ramp by the hwy 17 I believe it is. They are both in the small town of Riverside, Texas just outside of Huntsville. I really like it there because the water is deep everywhere and you can go half a tank one way and half a tank the other way. There are tons of wakeboarders out there on the weekends you'll see some sick boats. I'm probably camping out at Bethy Creek Resort this weekend. Beware though if you launch from Bethy Creek that you have to know where you are going because of all the shallow spots and the navigating of the creek to the Trinity river. It's by far the best place I've ridden. You can have 20+ mph winds and still be in very flat water. Always glassy.

Here's photos of the board I should be getting on Friday or Saturday. I'm definitely going to dye the fins. Also I see you like to ride backside is that your preference or you just didn't feel like switching up your set-up. I tried that this past weekend and it feels way different. I just switched and went regular.

surffresh 07-29-2010 10:04 AM

looks familiar..that board....hmmmm

22vdrive 07-29-2010 10:16 AM

Ya thanks again Drew I'm anxious to try it out. Can't wait!

Right on man looks sick! Dyeing the fins is a real simple project. I have since dyed them again and hit them with a clear, i wouldnt recommend re-dyeing and clearing, darker doesnt look as good IMO.
What color you gonna do?

Im the only goofy one if the family, so I just had to learn riding that way, its really hard to do airs backside, jumping off your heals just doesnt work as well. We have the ballast on the darkside now, only ridden it one, and its WAY different, I hate sucking haha. Its weird, I prefer riding switch on the portside (toeside) than riding goofy (toeside) on the darkside. donno why.

22vdrive 07-29-2010 10:41 AM

Weird, I skate board and surf goofy but I snowboard and wake board regular. I don't know why it just feels natural that way. I'm going to dye two of the fins blue and two of them light green. One green and blue up forward and one green and blue aft but alternating so on the port side it'll be green forward and blue aft and on the starboard it'll be blue forward and green aft. Think it should look good.

ilikebeaverandboats 07-29-2010 12:23 PM

yea man. sounds good. I wanted to do front fins orange and the back blue but i said screw it and just did all blue haha.

Squirrel 08-02-2010 2:13 PM

how does that RIT dye work? I got the new shred stixx comp 1 and would really like to dye my fins some cool color too, but im curious how well the color holds up.

ilikebeaverandboats 08-02-2010 3:01 PM

Color holds up alright, the blue faded a tiny bit after being in the sun but im not sure how much of that was just my eyes messing with me. I re dyed them, and put clear over them, and they are darker but dont look as good. IMO lighter looks better.
