Awesome is the only word to describe riding with Rusty. And that same to be said about hanging out with his family and friends. I can't say enough about how down to earth and chill all of them are. Rusty and Lindsy treated me far better then i could have ever expected or asked and even invited me back to there home again next year. So i am super pumped to make the trip back down there again. They are just amazing people. Also just so you all know rusty does have the worlds biggest wake. Dude runs more water then i ever thought that boat could hold and i have an X-Star. So his wake is massive.

"the fly high pro system im sure. anything else??? "

I would imagine all the weight he can until the boat won't plane out.

I thought Rusty had a new wrap? Not that the PWT X-Star is not sick enough. But Rusty's new wrap is insane!

You make Rusty look short. Looks like you had a blast.

Yeah, I am a little surprised that Rusty doesnt run his own wrap. Boat, wake, and trip still looks unreal though, its good to hear that you appreciate what an experience it was.

So are you sportin' the full wetsuit where Rusty only has shorts and a vest? Panzy! :-) Sounds like a good time!
Old    Carl Ladd (vlxwakeboarder)      Join Date: Jun 2008       02-11-2009, 7:37 AM Reply   
Shawn, thats Rusty in the fullsuit. Just a different set. He Didn't show any pictures of himself riding.

sorry it took so long to get back on here. And yeah i got to take several sets behind it however i didn't take any pic's of me riding behind it nor would they be half as cool as his pic's... and to answer the question as to how much water he runs.

He runs enough water C.I.E. said till it will just bearly get on plane is the best way to discribe it. he got the boat the day i got down there and it he keep filling bags till it wouldn't plane that drained the last bag in half and tested it and it got on plane so he put a bit more water in and then ran that. So it was the stock ballast, plus pro fly high ballast, plus a few more.

Rusty only runs the one X-Star and he runs what ever boat mastercraft gives him. This year it was the PWT. And as far as the board goes it my be a $700 board but i'll never ride it again. It found its place on my wall and i'm waiting till the new model comes out cause i got a sneak peek at the graphic going on it and it's sick.

O yeah and i'm from wisconsin so i only rode in board shorts and a jacket no wet suits at all.

What do the new graphics look like William?
Old    William Kocken (infantryman2oo2)      Join Date: Jul 2008       02-11-2009, 4:21 PM Reply   
the only one i got to see graphic wise is the PWT and it looks just like the picture. However Rusty puts his other sponsor's decals on the boat such as the rock stars in the corner or the fox sticker in the center of the "P"... But check this link out from another forum on wakeworld

http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/668349.html?1234396523

or check out the mastercraft site they should have all there new stuff up.

William, I mean the new board. What do the graphics on the 2010 board look like?

I love the photo with the billboard in the back ground that says "SWING HIGHER"
Old    michaelspsp (michaelspsp)      Join Date: Sep 2007       02-11-2009, 7:37 PM Reply   
and what speed does he ride at? 25?
Old    Tyler Lindsay (tx03gt)      Join Date: Feb 2008       02-11-2009, 9:26 PM Reply   
He was out with us last May and we pulled him around 25 or 26 I think. We also had stock ballast with the fly high pro + 8 people. In a star with with that much weight that speed is the norm.

the board all i can say is its sick looking no pic's of it. they keep that stuff secret till it releases so i must do the same but it looks sick. and yeah he gets pulled at 25mph

william....colours of the board? Can you describe the graphics. Iam going to buy a marek just not sure if its worth waiting a little longer for the new one
Old    William Kocken (infantryman2oo2)      Join Date: Jul 2008       02-12-2009, 2:52 PM Reply   
i'd love to but knowing the type of person rusty is i don't think he'd want me to. The board it's self isn't changing so to save money i'd buy this years cause all you'd be payin for is this years graphic. which is definetly sick but the price difference i don't think is worth it for any graphic

Michael, that's hilarious. I hope it looks similar to his new wrao. That thing is sick!
Old    michaelspsp (michaelspsp)      Join Date: Sep 2007       02-12-2009, 4:21 PM Reply   
justin , thats a great idea actually! i wonder if i could get a wrap to cover my marek like that? instead of buying a new board. i have an x-star but i think i am getting rid of it at the end of the year. so maybe my next x-star will match my board that way.

Michael, I just got a new X-45 and me and my mom and bro are trying to convince my dad that we need Rusty's wrap on our boat, but he is'nt falling for it.
Old    michaelspsp (michaelspsp)      Join Date: Sep 2007       02-12-2009, 4:29 PM Reply   
wow, 3 against one. i bet he gives in. what color is it now? and hyperlite and mastercraft, if you use this idea, you have to give me and justin something!
Old    justin (wake2wake_66)      Join Date: Nov 2008       02-12-2009, 4:35 PM Reply   
We haven't decided the color yet. We ordered it, and they don't need to know the colors until next week. I am thinking black and red, or red and white. Have you noticed any sick colors we could look at, Michael? I am coming from a lime green and black Tige'.

great boat. i have a friend that bought an x-45 in 2005 and traded last year for a 2008. if i were you i would play w the mastercraft design a boat feature on their web site. i like the black... or black and anything...
Old    justin (wake2wake_66)      Join Date: Nov 2008       02-12-2009, 5:16 PM Reply   
I think black and red looks pretty rad, but my dad and I are clean freaks and black is hard to keep clean. (I live on a dusty road) So I we might go with red and white.

Purple is my favorite color! I didn't know purple was an option.

Rusty has got to be one of the most humble people alive. So successful and yet so down to earth. I know you had a great time, congratulations.
