I don't, but they mentioned it in the kiteboarding forum thread. How did/does the Shadowbox work?

WOO: device for measuring jump height

It's made for kiteboarding specifically but they say they're working on that:



Thoughts?

Personally, aside from device sensitivity concerns, I'm wondering if the...

Question for Railroad regulars.

How do you guys deal with the 5 mph sign on the Old River side Railroad bridge?

Do you stop? Do you drop the rider every time you come full circle?

$900?? What kinda boat was that?

I do agree with you in concept as my tecnhical ability will likely never outgrow my 20K boat, but I would like a bit more room.

I hate choosing as all those riders are amazing, worked very hard to perfect their skills, and the videos took a lot of work to produce.

BTW, a v-drive is motor in the back. As opposed to direct drive, with motor in the middle, which tend to be better for skiing.

Yeah I got my 2001 205v (og xstar, x2, x1 hull) for 20K. Either that or a Nautique from that era are among what I'd consider "decent". For twice that you could get something what I'd consider "nice"....

I haven't tried the One, old or new, but if I hadn't settled on the Code, the One would have probably been the next in line to try.

It really depends on where you're at in your progression. IMO, fins are great for learning how to jump the wake with proper body position. I personally found it helpful to start with more fins, then...

The 205v (original X-Star, later became X-2, then X-1) is still pretty good for wakeboarding with 2500+ lbs of weight, but it sucks for surfing (IMO). Though I know very little about wakesurfing.

The Code 22 has sharper edges that the Willam. I find that it's less forgiving in that when I land on edge slightly out of position, it will hook and go. On the William I'd be able slide out and...

Josh, I'm just looking to replace the existing EQ. If I could buy the same one, I would, as it was 100% fine for my needs. Unfortunately I can't, so I'm looking for the closest thing I can get.

Yeah, that's definitely a must have. With this current EQ, that works by fading between front and rear, where rear is tower and front is interior.
