My rule of thumb is to pick the speed you want to crash at, then match the line length so you cross just inside the break. For new tricks, the probability of crashing is higher so you drop the speed...

It's the concrete ramp a couple miles up from the marina ramp... possible I have the wrong name, but it's very improved, has a very small dock, and definitely not the dirt launch, though not too far...

Anyone been to Bartlett recently that can tell me if Yellow Cliffs boat launch is open? I recall it being closed most of last year and haven't been to Bartlett since.

I'd suggest shortening the rope to something like 60 ft. That will narrow the wakes enough to allow you to clear more easily while building your confidence and technique. The first w2w jumps can be...

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.

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.

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. ...
