GREAT SPORT BEGINS WHERE GOOD HEALTH ENDS

Progressive riding will inevitably result in injury. Just the way it is.

Just go short line, drop the speed to 18mph and have a good time. Better than surfing.

Also...consider a sky ski. Lots of old dudes going huge on those and they are super fun.

So...

I’m guessing the guy stoke over the carbon fiber job is the same guy doing backflips over that window job.

24 SSV is a great boat. Watch for extensive, and I mean extensive, gel coat cracks. The tower is clunky to operate on your own if garage use is in your future. Single pump sprinkler valve...

I'll say it again.....for new boats, it's the big one (Nautique) and then everyone else and then the "price point" brands. But the reality is that the price point brands are pretty sweet as well. ...

More like 10 times a second every weekend. This is the ONLY type of surf wave that interests me.

If in good shape, you fix/maintain most things and you leave as is, it's a good deal. If not then the $12k boat rapidly becomes a $20k boat that you can sell later for $13-15k

You will be lucky...

Ohh...btw, I would rather see someone sending it on an I/o with dangling speakers than any surf boat as well. But if you have dangling speakers, then just own it. Or better yet, just remove them. ...

I don't like the long coated lines for the kids. I just get the $45 line lines that I can shorten with knots. I like to shorten the line, a lot, so they can jump the wake at slower speeds. ...

Tension the puller and then "tickle" the prop with a rubber mallet. It should make a nice humming, gong sound. Don't have to hit very hard, just enough to keep it resonating. Every so often,...
