I've always just cut a box and made my own packing so it fits the curve of the board tightly and takes up less space. I haven't had to pay extra if I use it as one of my allowed bags. The nice...

Oh, and they might be closing for the year! Better check that out! A lot of the times they close during the week after their National Reunification Holiday.

Whoa! See that!? Very different launch from Scott- almost vertical. Definitely high jumping versus long jumping there! He also came down with a slacked line.

Madison Wisconsin

I'm wondering what the scene is like in Madison. There seems to be a pretty good following for the university team. I'm here this fall and will be able to rip whenever. I don't have a boat here but...

I don't think you have to worry about the water moving 20mph and getting out. The water would probably have the most speed ( maybe force would be a better way to look at it) near the jets and would...
