I really enjoyed it and was happy to drop $10 in support.

2001 for sure. It may be a little more, but its value will never go down because is has a cult following. You could keep it for 10 years and if you bought right and took care of it get all your money...

I'm from Houston. We slang and bang while we grip the grain.

No need to wrap it. It will give you plenty of traction without eating up your hands.

I like teaching the FS first. You can build off the foundation of a good FS 180. BS 180s are harder than a FS or BS 360 for most people.

1" fin on that board is a lot of fin. Good news is that you are riding one of the most stable and limitless boards out there. It is a great beginner board yet can still go to the moon strapped to the...

I built a clearwater foil.

Bakes, who has time for that? I could air it out in the flats no problem and the only backflip I ever tried, I barely looped out on. The wake to wakes were fine until...

Foiling is cool and I have done it a little. I've been wakeboarding for 25 seasons and a foil crash ranks in my top ten. My first wake to wake attempt involved me catching an edge with the foil and...

Your height says 150, your weight says 144. You could easily ride both well. My policy is that when I am between sizes, I go up.

Stephen,

I own a 25LSV. The A24 is a very similar wake. We had 750 PNP on both sides of the motor. About 300lbs under the dash and the wedge was set in the 2spot. The beauty of the A24 wake is...

B, first M235s aren't $200K. You can sit in a maxed out one for about $180 (Less than G23 with a super charged engine--M235's stock engine). And where on earth did you get the idea that a Malibu is...

Don't confuse sport and industry. Some of the best wakeboarding came before it was an industry. My point is let the athletes lead the sport and let the money follow. Not the other way around.

The 2017 MXZ has a whole new hull, a different prop and a different gear ratio. Also, wedge position plays a huge role. I see knuckleheads with their wedge in the 5 spot when surfing. I run my 25 LSV...

Unless I am wrong. That is not the current 24MXZ. That would mean that it isn't benefiting from the lifting wedge, new gear ratio or the 17" prop. The new 24 runs a much lower RPM.

The Moose is a WW legend. I don't understand why people take pleasure tormenting him. Live and let live. I would love to have his stoke level for a day.
