That's a bummer! Do they have a local shop in Hong Kong? One of the reasons I like buying stuff from a local shop here is they handle warranty stuff and it's also nice to try on boots before buying....

I love being on the water. While I don't find wakesurfing nearly as exhilirating as wakeboarding, I too will probably wakesurf once the body can't handle wakeboarding anymore. Or not, since as others...

I don't think a helmet will help a ton unless you're hitting hard objects. When slamming head against water, you'll still get the concussed due to brain flopping around inside the scull (it's...

Best slow mo comes from command line tools on Linux. Said no one ever. But that's what I typically use because it's quick and easy. [1]

An even easier method is to use VLC (free for Windows and...

Can someone explain "indian line" to me? It's a higher tow point than usual at a cable park or what? Googled it but came up short.

I think maybe he's talking about inverts where you get off your edge (e.g. tantrum or scarecrow) vs edging all the through the wake. For the latter, I think of Jim Aikin's roll to revert or Billy...

At this stage, I wouldn't get too hung up on the board -- LF Shane 2010 (and any modern board, really), should pop fine. If you're not getting the pop, it's likely not the board, but technique.

As I'm sure many have heard, a man got killed in a boating accident by Railroad on the Delta [1].

Anyone has any details on the cause?

For those not familiar with the spot, the location [1] is...

Hell, yeah, would love to see what Shapiro can do off these huge modern wakes. Dude was a beast. For some reason I thought he was in jail though.

Late to the thread, but JB has a section in the original Delta Sessions. Been defying laws of physics since before it was cool! :-)

Spent about 4 hours finless and found it perfect on the obstacles and for having fun with powerslides and nose/tail blunts around corners. It's also fine for tracking when on edge, but I don't always...

Thanks, guys.

Kane, what did you not like about the Witness? I'm guessing the Watson Hybrid is more slippery finless than the Lyman with fins, true? Judging by the bottom features, the Shane...

Like Jon said above, you'll want a bigger board if riding slower. A smaller board is nice when you go faster and wanna do big spins. IMO, a smaller board for you would be a 142. I'm 6'1" 180lbs and...

I don't know how sticky your board is, but I think a board that's too loose is bad for beginners. I'd recommend something that will easily hold an edge all the way through the wake, which is what you...
