I've known a number of guys in the Coast Guard, and I'm quite sure they would approve of her floatation.

The only reason for shorts UNDER a wetsuit is modesty when taking the wetsuit off. From a pure comfort standpoint, wetsuits are best while nekkid. If I'm in a group I am concerned about giving an...

I hope it doesn't work too well and become too common. Watching husband and wife teams yell at each other on the ramp is a cheap source of entertainment for me.

Mine varies all over the place. If I'm just out with another family to have fun, I don't ask for anything, though if they want to chip in I'm more than happy to accept. Many will instead arrange...

That's tough to answer as the difference between a fast and slow start is probably measured in fractions of seconds. It's hard to...

I don't think it's a matter of balance between top and bottom, it's whether it hits the style you've adopted as "correct". Wakeboarders have somehow created an idea of what how think they should...

a couple tips, though more focused on editing than filming:

- shoot lots of video and edit it way down. You'll probably only end up using a few minutes out of every hour of video.

Glad to see this. I'm tired of only being able to find board shorts that hang down to my knees and feel like wet sheets wrapped around my legs. Style should come into play only after you first get...

Yes and no... mostly no. MC had problems in only the 2012 models when they switched vendors. I've heard even the 2012s are fine now so long as the dealer installs the correct software updates. The...

I hope my wife doesn't read this, but I'd be more excited about the boat delivery than the baby delivery.

Congrats!

From a pure performance standpoint, they are both outstanding boats, but I think the X25 produces the same level of performance with less extra ballast than the A22. With just factory ballast, the...

It's been a few years since my buddy sold his, but my recollection is we were more like 60/40 toward the rear. There's a personal preference aspect as well and you might like a different ratio. ...
