It happens, but I'd say it's quite rare. I spin a LOT (seriously I might do 1-2 inverts per set but probably 10-20 handle pass spins) and, knock on wood, it has never happened.

Of all the riders I...

I haven't ever ridden the sv23 hull (pre 2005 VLX), but my dad owns an '05 VLX and as johnny_defacto said, it's a great hull. Even after riding the new Xstar and G23, people still get really stoked...

Like others have said, it comes down to a few factors. At ~21mph you don't really need extra ballast. Stock+wedge will be as big as an extra 1.5k would be at 23-24mph. Personally, I love the shape...

This was a tragic accident. Chris, didn't Corey Kraut break his neck (and unfortunately pass away) from just hitting water? Tragic accidents happen. Let's not scrutinize or overanalyze landing ramps...

How to Wakeboard in Spanish

Only 1 month away now, can't wait! Looks like I'll be spending about 5 days in Miami now so maybe I'll make it to Rixen or ride boat somewhere before I leave the US.

Anyone have any good gift...

311 at Virginia Tech's auditorium. I was probably 15 or 16 (sophomore year of high school). Still one of my favorite concerts ever. 3,000 people all jumping.

I think you guys are stretching here. This article wasn't about global warming or Fukushima...it was about the abundance of trash in the ocean largely from the tsunamis.

Our trailer was boxed in (boat is in the water) so we had to do the normal way. I think the anti-seize we put on the threads this spring saved us. All 4 bolts came out easy and after all the water...

boardjnky4 and tonyv420, the antifreeze isn't because we're paranoid. It's because we are trying to do this without draining the manifolds. We normally just drain the block/manifolds and don't use...

Thanks for the tips.

So sounds like the antifreeze+bucket is perfectly viable but without a fake a lake, does...
