All of those boards available to demo in one place. If you want to see your board demoed, feel free to contact me. And as far as boats:
  • Guaranteed
    • The Wake9 2010 Tige RZ2
    • Ski Supreme V226
  • Hopefully
    • 2010 Centurion Enzo SV230
    • 2011 Tige RZR
  • We are trying, don't count on it
    • Sanger V237
    • Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV

I need help on the sanger and malibu. So if anyone wants to help me make this happen it would be GREAT.

As usual, the people that show up will be filling out forms and we will post lots of pics and video and feedback from the riders. This year there is a cost. Last year, Amy and I just payed for it all, to see if it would fly. This year we are hoping to break about even. We will be out all day on 10/16 and then dinner at our favorite pizza parlor in downtown Chico, called Woodstocks. Don't miss it.

A note on the boats and wakes. We cannot demo any personal boats, they must be from dealers, and the dealer must provide the driver. We want each boat to be weighted properly, and we will work to get that done. We will be demoing with stock boats, with extra water ballast only, and the ballast and people in the boat must not exceed the stated manufactures weight. We are not looking for which boat makes the most monster of a wake. We are looking to demo the boats so that the riders get a feel for what they will get when they buy. We are going to push that all ballast be hidden, but not required. Each boat weight setup will be thoroughly photographed and documented. We may need help, and will seek it for the enzo to make sure the goofy wake is setup properly, as long as it meets the above requirements.

Hope that makes sense, we want people to demo stock boats with daily setups, and lead free.

ilikebeaverandboats 09-17-2010 12:28 AM

sounds like fun man. cant wait to see some pictures!!!! you guys always have some good stuff on wake9.com to check out.

I hate to do it, but i have to, that comment about the enzo seems like a poke, whether it be intentional or not, people pick up on it.

ragboy 09-17-2010 12:57 AM

Well, help me out Joey, I meant no poke, honestly. If you mean we may need help, all I mean by that is I don't want anyone to say our pictures and video are bad because we didn't weight it properly. So I am willing to get help from someone in the centurion community to make sure it is weighted well, so that way the Enzo is represented as well as any other boat. So when I said that, I meant that I want to put out every effort to make sure it is represented well. Does that make sense? I didn't mean it can't be done, or its hard, just that I haven't done it.

Anyway, if the centurion community wants to send someone that they feel will weight it right, I am all for that. Also, if there is another dealer, or Centurion Corp that wants to instead send a 2011, and make sure there is one presented, I am all for that also. Grant from CMS thinks he may sell it before the date, so that is why that boat is a maybe. Would be happy to make a centurion a for sure, just would need help. Just remember, it has to be a dealer, with a driver from the dealer, not a personal boat due to insurance and liability reasons. Also, I can't have a wake9 sanctioned event, where we are demoing boats that are weighted above the manufacturers suggested weight limit with water ballast and people. I hope you all can understand that.

surfdad 09-17-2010 5:43 AM

We'll be there, looking forward to seeing the extended Garcia clan!

jdjjamesz 09-17-2010 6:36 AM

I should send a stretchboard up there for people to try ..

ragboy 09-17-2010 6:46 AM

That would be great James. If you contact mitch at CMS, they are taking care of the boards, then I will add it to our list.

petrey10 09-17-2010 7:39 AM

where is this located at for us who don't know... state? lake?

timmyb 09-17-2010 7:53 AM

What city would one fly into to get to this event?

gunz 09-17-2010 8:00 AM

Probably Sacramento

ragboy 09-17-2010 8:53 AM

Follow the first link, at the top of the post for up to date info. Sacramento Airport. I will also be providing hotel info this weekend.

colombiansurfer 09-17-2010 9:23 AM

Sounds like fun and a great list of boards for everyone to try before you buy. Nice boat line up too, wished there were more boats to ride in or surf behind.

I have to agree with Joey C. with the comment as a poke. When I first read it I was good until that comment and was like WTF? This all over again? I would suggest editing that whole part out "We may need help, and will seek it for the enzo to make sure the goofy wake is setup properly, as long as it meets the above requirements." so not to wake up the sleeping beast.

ragboy 09-17-2010 9:34 AM

Well, I would edit it if I could. I hope you understand, I meant no poke. I was trying to communicate that I want to be sure it is represented as well as the others, and I personally have not weighted an enzo before. You have to understand my sensitivity, that I don't want to put on the event, and have it marred by people saying we purposely didn't weight it right or something. That is what I meant that we would need help. Apparently, it didn't read that way, and for that, I apologize. There was no poke or bash intended. I take these kinds of demos very seriously and want everyone there to get a good ride on whatever boat they choose to demo.

I want every rider to ride behind all boats, that will be my goal, unless we get too many boats. On the boards, I am going to have each rider pick 6 or so boards, in order of preference, and we will organize it ahead of time.

lakesurfer 09-17-2010 10:01 AM

"We may need help, and will seek it for the enzo to make sure the goofy wake is setup properly, as long as it meets the above requirements."

Nothing wrong with this, now guys are just being to sensitive:) For as much heat Ragboy has taken from the Centurion community (me included), I thought this was a nice jester and I dont blame him. Personally, I would like it run 1,500lbs Enzo sac, auto trim tab all the way down and 500-750lbs people on the seats. BTW, if the Enzo 230 does not have an auto trim tab there is no point in running the boat on the dark side. The wake will be terrible if you can not run with the trim tab down (just like the 226)

Sounds like great event. I look forward to the feed back. I really hope someone shows up with Bu247. It would be nice to see little video on it.

ragboy 09-17-2010 10:58 AM

@jkw, thanks, I appreciate it. It truly was not meant to be a poke. Why would I even try to include the enzo, if that was my intention? If you guys want to help, or ring someone up at centurion to provide a 2010-2011 with an adjustable trim, I will be very open to that. All the boats will be running on both sides, it probably won't look good if we say, we decided not to try on the other side. I will find out if that boat has an adjustable plate, I honestly don't know.

The Sanger and the Bu are wishful thinking, I included them and I have contacted Sanger and Malibu. I am hoping by including, I might have a better chance. I want this to be an annual event, where people can demo a lot. And over time we are working to be able to include more riders.

ragboy 09-17-2010 11:25 AM

Does anyone have a good contact at Sanger? If you do, please PM me, or use this:

http://wake9.com/blogs/ragboy/contact/

I have contacted Malibu through a dealer, and through Facebook. But if anyone has a strong contact there also, I would love to know. Thanks.

wofrankwo 09-17-2010 12:16 PM

you can definitely count on frank and christopher in the participation of this event

wofrankwo 09-17-2010 12:16 PM

and remember to order me Non Hot Wings!!!

tonyv420 09-17-2010 12:25 PM

Ragboy maybe you should refrain from even using the word Enzo or Centurion. LOL.....J/K

ragboy 09-17-2010 12:29 PM

@frank, make sure you sign up on the site! Looking forward to it Frank, as always.

@anthonyv911 I hear you, but in the end, my motives and heart from the sport will come through. And it includes Centurion.

ragboy 09-17-2010 12:46 PM

*for the sport

gunz 09-18-2010 7:50 AM

ragboy is good for the sport:)

wakemitch 09-20-2010 4:42 PM

I'm stoked for this. I can't wait to ride with everyone.

ragboy 09-21-2010 3:00 AM

So on Saturday, RJ and I took the 2 hour drive to head down to California Marine Sports in Suison City to see our buddy Mitch (wakemitch) and have some fun. I wanted everyone to get a visual idea of 2 things:

1. How many boards we are going to have to demo
2. The pro shop at CMS is really great, tons of boards to choose from. I have always wanted to see a great wakesurf shop, and I don't know of another like this in NorCal.

Enjoy the video, and if in NorCal, check out CMS, we gotta support these local shops. 2 board shops in Chico went out of business this summer, such a bummer. Anyway, Enjoy.

notsobueno 09-21-2010 5:57 AM

Zip two vests together in daisy chain fashion. IMO.

colombiansurfer 09-21-2010 6:21 AM

Funny video! Good job.

Fiveflat 09-21-2010 7:21 AM

Is that a Walker Cruiser behind you at the end of the video?

ragboy 09-21-2010 9:09 AM

Yes, a 6'6" version.

@dtw I have a PFD that fits, just screwing around.

notsobueno 09-21-2010 9:28 AM

just screwing around too.

ragboy 09-21-2010 11:10 AM

Good, you had me concerned. ;-)

gunz 09-21-2010 2:16 PM

So if you have a vest that fits,does that mean you are gonna surf?

Inquiring minds want to know.

ragboy 09-21-2010 5:48 PM

lol, working on it.

ilikebeaverandboats 09-22-2010 3:57 PM

gunz 09-24-2010 7:29 AM

malibu 09-24-2010 8:46 AM

Me Too!

ragboy 09-25-2010 1:49 AM

I got some cool news to post about this in a couple of days, probably monday.

Longboarding
 
Hey guys and ladies I have enjoyed following your post? Has anyone tried longboarding on the wake? The reason I ask is two weeks ago I was on the giant standup paddle board and just for grins took the rope on the wakesurf Malibu when it rambled by. This was going to be a joke and I was just going back the the other side of the lake for grins on this huge 11"2" barge. I got up to about 9.5 miles per hour and threw the handle to the boat and started surfing. At first I had some trouble getting in the right position but moved out a bit further than I do on a tradional board and behold I was longboarding with quite a bit of success. Now my chops are way down since I have not surfed much since I moved back from Florida and closed the surf shop there but all of a sudden I started walking the board, tail stalling and just having a blast. Around the lake 4 times with no falls. Now this barge was cumbersome but I think a traditional 9' board might be killer and allow me to come off the wake with some speed and cross step to the nose and either do a cheater 5 for a few seconds or possible hang 10. I need to get out again but have a set of new stitches to heal from first from another deal. I thought I would ask you guys that have so much experiance if anyone has done this and if you guys think it could be another division of wakesurfing. We have both divisions in tradional surfing and the longboard thing will let guys over 260 lbs have another outlet. It is very hard teaching a 260lb plus guy on a 4'2" or even a wakeboard if they are not good watermen or women. Please advise me. Thanks for letting me be part of your discussions. This forum rocks!
