Went today and rode.... had a blast.
The system 2.0 is awesome... nice pull, air tricks are easy (for left and right foot forward), just a super fun way to mix up boat riding.

All they had today was a box, a jump and more is on the way.... I urge anyone around Wisco to check it out, it was very very fun.

here is what it looks like

What would you like on it???
I just rode it, so I don't know much more than what is on the website

but it was super fun, so nice to ride cable, fall, and have the rope come back to you... so nice to not have to kick off the boots and hike everytime you go down... and 1 hour is plenty long to make you huff and puff... or I am in awful shape

^ yeah, the guys riding at the same time as me were all cool, so none of us cared if after someone fell, the operator brought the cable back to the guy..... not sure if all run that way, but since everyone that was there was cool we just rode til we were tired, then ended.

and to get picked up again, it was just a matter of swimming to right under the cable, then the guy running it could bring it right to you and start you back up again.... it was really nice

The run is like 400/500 ft....
Not super long, but its nice because you don't have to waste energy on corners or stretches with nothing.

Air tricks must be easy. That line looks almost like an Indian Line.

^ the line we were using was between a long rail line, and an indian line.... it worked good for everything.... but they did have a longer and a shorter one

Is that the only Jib?? I was thinking about bouncing out there this weekend, but I have more jibs than that at my house. Would love to check out the system 2.0 tho-

Right now thats all they have... I know I heard about a kicker and some more things in the works.

If you wait til the weekend of the 27th Will Christien and I should be there for a few hours

*and if you come through and want a pull on a boat, and break up the drive, I am between the cities and where this cable is, PM me and I can shoot you an address or something*

Great Nick, thanks for the offer I will totally take you up on that. Dont know if I am all tied up this weekend with fathers day or not, but If not I may roll out there. Hard to get motivated to drive taht far for one jib, when we have 4 in the backyard.

I know what you mean... its only like 40 min for me, so its not soo bad.

I friend of mine works out there, I can ask him how long til there is more stuff going in and post up.

I would be heading there this weekend but my Fiance' has Miss Wisconsin going on, she I have to be there or I'll be killed.... and then fathers day.... but the pro tour is coming to milwaukee... could make the drive and hit up the tour.

...but any, and every weekend after this one I should be heading out there on if you want to carpool or something for the last little bit, or need boat pulls.

*Does the-house sell 3'/5' line sections?

I think so. Do want a new line or just a few 3'-5' foot sectoins?

Our line has seen better days, but it should hold for the rest of the year... I just want to make it a little longer... but I guess if the price was right I would maybe just get a new one.
I'm just fairly broke these days.... not working really hurts the bank account

Today just about finished the kicker... should be done tomorrow afternoon... I'll got some pics/vids of it unless the weather takes a turn for the worse

The kicker is:
~ 12ft. long
~ 8 ft. wide
~ 3.5ft. high.... it has a good amount of transition to it... similar to "Big White" but a little smaller.
