Fun pics over the 4th
We had a great week as a family and surfed at least every other day. Its been nice taking a break between events and just enjoying the lake and our boat. I think I did a good job of just pairing down a few images, but keep in mind we had like 9 people in the boat and everyone surfed.
Thomas has been practicing and wants to win the juniors class at the EWT tour and the NWWSA event. He has had a solid bottom turn for some time but has been working on his air, with help from his brother.

He is really starting to get out of the water on that Nano and having some fun.

RJ has gotten very comfortable on his new soulcraft and still hasn't changed up his fin setup, he likes it the way it is.

We have been testing a lot of stuff and then having more regular riders on board so much so that RJ is getting almost as comfortable on his backside.

We have been growing our small Lake Oroville Wakesurf community into something pretty cool, I think. Wakesurfing is going to take over at least the north end of this lake. This is a local 14 year old girl that has been riding off and on with us and now at almost every tour stop. I am sure she will be riding pro next year. Her name is Allison Sos, but we call her Takoh Sos.
Going for the double grab, she broke her own TWP Bomb Pop and was borrowing Maddie and Jessies.

Takoh has a sick bottom turn compared to anyone. She has a very unique style and I would say its def her signature move. You will have to check her out in our latest video to see what I mean by her unique style, its almost a dance move.

Takoh rode in that one section of the lake at just the right time that just makes the pictures amazing.

This is her snap after bottom turn.

She really works that Bomb Pop well.

OK, so last, we have been playing around with this boom pole. Its a bit expensive but allows for super smooth pole shots, even at a distance. Here is a screen grab. This is not RJ recovering, this is just him going to his starting position before attempting something. He has almost landed his 360 riding backside, can't wait to see him finish that.
