Polar Bear: The Weekend After
What an amazing day at Camp Far West Lake. 85 degrees and glass all day!! Not a wetsuit or heater top in site for even the kids!! 6 Families represented with 3 boats pulling full time!! The most Chris and I have ever wakesurfed in one day!! Great awesome people sharing a Beautiful Day!! The best Wake I have ever surfed behind a Boat it was a Flippin Wall!!!!! That Tige RZ4 is Incredible both with wave and looks!! Big thanks to Robert and Rob and Dan and their Families along with Dennis and Rick!! It just keeps gettin Funner!!
It was a great time, no doubt. The 2012 Tige RZ4 didn't make it on time for the event, we got it the Sunday night of the event. So we took it to CFW again, for another day of AMAZING weather. We will be releasing a lot of pictures and video as we put together a review of the RZ4, but here are a couple to post now. Frank and Chris REALLY liked the wake, and this was really our first dial in session, it still has room to grow. We rode on goofy side, and it was good, but then moved to regular side, we had several regular riders. RJ wanted to try something a bit different, and BAM, the wake was great on the regular side. Can't wait to try that setup on goofy. Chris and Frank Wolter, LOVED the RZ4 wake, they were both loving it a lot.
RJ was boosting on his Elevation, but also rode Chris' Flyboy for fun. He stuffs the nose a lot on this board, because he rides so front foot heavy with a wide stance, but when he pulls it in and gets it just right, that original flyboy sails, so light.

Chris Wolter had a smile on his face the whole time, he was loving RJs custom Elevation and also he loved the wake. I think we still have room to dial more, but it was nice. [Frank, I know you love the pics when he boosts, this is a good one, ha?]

This is a great picture, because the wake had tons of push, Chris was just living back here. This was not him recovering, he did recover later from much farther back then this. And the Elevation is not a fast board, its designed for pumping, not down the line speed like the flyboy, yet he was able to just "chill" at the back of the wake.

Lastly we slow the boat down a bit, to give Frank a waist high wall that he likes for his frame. You can see the smile on his face, and we have video of him recovering from far back, tons of push.

Lots more to come, the boat is HUGE, so comfortable, and the PCM 409 seems to give it enough power, more than enough power to not cavitate with the stock prop. We will have to test more though.
We didn't measure the fuel economy, but wen't out for about 3 hours on Wed and only used 9 gallons. Don't take that to the bank, but this boat with the 409 seems to still be sipping gas, how is that? Fun stuff.
Sadly back in Ohio... Looks like the young men are realy boosting big air!
Ditto on how the FlyBoy sails. Chris rode it one session for the first time since June and he tried a 3 shuv and got the board completely around and landed on it but not even close to riding it out but after doing shuvs on the shreddstix he was amazed how easy it was to get the board completely around 360!!
