Amy likes to ride our 6'6" Walker Project Cruiser, she just feels comfortable on it. It has no traction, just hula deck and that is how she likes it. But we have been keeping it on the boat at all times now since she rides it every time we go out and since RJ has also been riding it every time we go out. Its just something different and fun. This last sunday he took Jesse out and had an epic tandem session and had us all laughing and smiling for a long time. So I have some pictures and video of the fun on the longboard and then the incredible tandem session. I think we are going to be taking out our ocean mini longboard (9' long) which is a real nose rider so RJ can work on getting a hang ten.

This is from a week or so ago and Dennis was showing up RJ getting all the way up on the nose heelside.

You can see this at the end of the video, but this was both cool and scary, Dennis always makes boards fly when he riding the nose and then goes down, but I have never seen a board fly like this. I was yelling "cover your head" because it landed very close to him.

A great shot of RJ heading up the nose heelside.

I talked to RJ about cross stepping and showed him a few videos, and he is starting to get the hang of it.

Here he cross stepped into a body varial.

Dennis again, he showed RJ the best ways to sink the board in the wake so you could walk up without catching up so much.

RJ on his natural side cross stepping.

So then RJ got Jesse out there with him, and they were in rare form. Jesse is getting to be good surfer in her own right and was able to balance on the board without aid.

Amy almost fainted on this one.

RJ has a ton of balance, and this takes a bit of practice and a fearless kid.

Backwards hand stand?

Now they are both surfing and Jesse is on her own, but RJ is in front.

She just kept smiling.

This is my favorite pic, I think this will be my wallpaper on my iPad for a while.

You think RJ and Chris could ride that and get Air and do 360's? The balance would be so cool ( maybe ) with a regular and a goofy on the same board!!

Air can DEF be achieved, but I think it will take you and I too egg them into a contest to really see some big air.

Check out this guy, I found this a couple weeks ago when RJ started messing around.



We have a real nose rider, taking it out today. This pic is from 2009 if you can believe it.

But this video is what I showed to RJ and inspired him, I would LOVE to see this behind the boat, how fun is this:



And last, check this out, I found a practice method:

Wow, air tandem? That sounds nuts, yet fun. ;-) The yellow board? I have no idea. We have something you can borrow to practice on, and then we can get together on the lake and video tape them all hamming it up.
