how is surfing behind a direct drive any more unsafe than a vdrive? maybe you thought he said I/O?

Truth. He was obviously thinking I/O... Just had to call him out. We've all had those moments..


Direct drive ski boats + no ballast + wakesurfing = win!

Andy - we surf ballastless in a direct drive to keep the wakes down for you!

;-)

Just kidding. Rest assured that no butter was harmed in the taping of these videos. One part was taped November 11th in Minnesota. The other was taped Labor Day on Prior Lake. The anti-butter.

Jason (guy in the video) wore a dry suit.. On that same day - I thought I'd be ok in "just" a wet suit.

I, in fact, was not.. I took a digger and IMMEDIATELY my body went into shock mode. I wanted to get my bindings off SOO bad but my hands wouldn't work the way my mind wanted them too. Calmed down a second, got my poop in a group, got them off and got in the boat.

Just did it to say we did it. Not smart. Jason took like a 10 minute surf set in that water with his feet exposed. No thanks!
