So I got married this past Saturday at a lake in Colorado and I wanted to share a couple pics.

My wife and I met about 2 years ago in the "Find a Third" section of this forum.... Apparently I got a lot more than I bargained for!! Lol

Awesome man Congratulations!

phathom 07-01-2014 3:12 PM

Sounds to me like you found a second, not a third.
Congratulations. I would love it if my wife was into watersports as much as yours is.

Phantom was his second but he was too busy reviewing some wakesurf wakes so he found a third. Congrats bro, second would have sucked anyways.

PotatoShack 07-01-2014 6:29 PM

Thanks everybody!! It was a fun day for sure. I will post more pics when we get them.

The plan was for her to jump over me too, but the dress was like an anchor when it got wet! I don't know how she even rode in it!

slipknot 07-02-2014 8:51 AM

Congrats! That's pretty awesome to find a girl like that!

What lake did you take the pics at?

jfergus7 07-02-2014 1:59 PM

That is just awesome! Congrats!

imondi 07-02-2014 2:06 PM

Thanks everybody for the kind words!! I'm hoping that someday, I can shred like her!!

Timmyb... We had the wedding and rode at Vega Reservoir. It's almost 9000 ft elevation so it's chilly, but we love it up there!!

timmyb 07-02-2014 2:26 PM

Oh, ok, you are on the western slope! Very cool! I'm down in the Denver area and didn't recognize that lake. Looks nice!

downfortheride 07-03-2014 9:53 AM

Hell ya Vick! That's funny everybody that I ride with in UT I met on here... Well except Dustin, he was a KSL friend buying a board from me. Still never forget meeting you here and driving 4 hours to Lake Powell. That was a hell of a trip for the internet dude.

dhorton 07-03-2014 10:31 AM

Congrats Vic! Looks like you guys had a great day!
Josh I find it hard to believe this is the only site that you have "met dudes" on:eek:

downfortheride 07-03-2014 1:20 PM

David ~ You know my interweb trail... www.slcdudes.com
Ha, met David on here and the first time out I say "How about a quick zip?" The rest is history!

canucked 07-03-2014 1:39 PM

Ronix Fins on Slingshot? *time senstive question
My Slingshot Recoil broke a fin last weekend. It is is 3 hours away at our lake house

I have an older Ronix Covin at home that I could borrow the fins from, would they fit the hole pattern?

I understand this is easy to test however, the boards are 3 hours apart. .I just need to know if I need to find/order new Slingshot fins prior to leaving for the weekend.

PS *I suck too much to ride finless

canucked 07-03-2014 1:39 PM

oops, ment to post this as a new topic...sorry

(congrats on your wedding)

imondi 07-03-2014 1:47 PM

Timmyb: yeah we are out of grand junction. There are some awesome lakes over here!!

Josh: at least Dave didn't try to kill you your first time out!! Swivel rack to the side of the head is not a good way to go!

somebuddy 07-05-2014 12:33 AM

Find a spouse, be a spouse.

downfortheride 07-10-2014 3:17 PM

Vic ~ Or leave ya at the gas station miles away from the destination...

snork 07-10-2014 4:23 PM

Way to go, only can hope thats whats in my cards dealt to me

ryanw209 07-10-2014 8:23 PM

Congrats!! I have a similar story as yours except the random third I got off wakeworld brought a friend, who I ended up marrying in April.

ryanw209 07-10-2014 8:38 PM

...oh and she is from Colorado also haha

wakeworld 07-10-2014 8:40 PM

That's so awesome!! I just put it up on our Facebook page. Reminds me of when I had Sean O'Brien interview a wakeboarding Maxim model about 10 years ago. They're married now! :)

eubanks01 07-11-2014 11:36 AM

Met a guy on the Wakeboarder.com discussion boards that later invited me on a big houseboat trip to Lake Powell...where I met my wife. So nobody can argue that wakeboarding isn't a lifestyle!

Then I was in line once at TSR behind this famous guy named David Williams. Dream come true. :-)

wakeworld 07-11-2014 11:49 AM

Haha, that was a fun day!!

wazzy 04-07-2016 9:42 AM

Awesome! Congrats!!

downfortheride 04-08-2016 8:47 AM

This is awesome! Funny thing is I also met Victor on this site and the first time we met is him pulling up to my work with a truck and boat and rolling 4 hours to Lake Powell. One of the best trips and received my nick name "internet dude" that has stuck since.
