By the way... this is a better shot of the kicker. Massive doesn't begin to explain it. I'd be scared outta my mind to hit this thing!

damn, that is super steep, I think they are going to need to drop the front down a bit!

It looks worse then it is. It's super easy to hit and you can really fly if you want or just take a nice mellow slide over it. Here's a shot of me not exactly taking a mellow slide:

I wanna see video of Cliff hitting that thing. I've seen Harf and Sharpe hit kickers that big and eat crap. I will be waiting to see what the NWHC does off of it.

I have enough brain cells left to know that I have no business hitting that.

I think some have forgotten about the death kicker Hilliard put together a few years ago. It was steeper without transition and gave zero room for error. This one looks like it has a nice transition to scrub speed if you hit it to hot. I'm actually looking forward to seeing it in person.

You should seriously consider hopping on a plane Scotty.

Everyone drive safe. Make sure you bring ones and fives for the raffle too.

Scotty, it won't be the same without you.

Better not look at the forecast. Dang this weather!!!

Got the kicker out of the water and it is ready to roll. We had to make sure it still worked before we put it on the trailer. After further review it is AWESOME.

Nope,

People are busy getting caught up at work this week. Most of us were over there four days. I plan on doing a write up and there are many more photos yet to be posted.

Working on making a nice write up to go with Rich's vid but until then I like to thank those responsible for helping us raise over $3k for the Susan G Komen raffle this year.

Personal thanks go out to:

Steven Hahn, for contacting and convincing many of the vendors to donate to such a good cause.

Obrien Wakeboards, who consistently step up to the plate every year.

CWB, who always manages to contribute a nice setup.

Company Wake, who generously donated this year.

Jet Pilot, for donating every year.

Pepsi Beverages Company, for helping me make this raffle a success.

Three Fine Fellows, who makes sure there is Northwest representation.

The Tri Cities Crew, for helping out with donations and swag for the raffle.

TheBoatAccessoryshop.Com, for their generous donations.

Samson Towers, for the generous donation.

Joe Umali, for donating posters and Chick Flick DVDs for the groms.

This year was the largest and by far the most fun I've had at NWWF. Thanks to all who participated looking forward to next year.

Just got back from Germany late Tuesday night. Oktoberfest wore me out, but I'll dive back into the edit this weekend.

Cliff... still gotta get that flip cam from you... might be some footage on there I'll want for the vid.
