It is well known Wheelhouse is all about riding the endless wave. Some of us call it wake surfing but it is not. It is the once in a lifetime opportunity to ride an endless wave (as long as the boat works anyway). It will put a smile on the face of any one who dares to learn how to get up and learn how to catch and ride the endless wave.

With Wake Surfing or Endless Wave Riding, most of us dont have to worry about Jaws AKA sharks. Last time we checked Great Whites are Inquisitive and we are tasty. We dont have to battle the mighty relentless power of the ocean. We dont have to inhale saltwater. Heck we dont even half to paddle into a wave. No Ocean is required. (Mother Ocean you are well loved needed and respected by all of us). It is damn good fun. You can ride waves all day not get your hair wet. (Jerry Lopez)

One would think this great time would breed an environment of people who are banned together by the love of the endless wave. And it was not what type of boat created the wave or what side of the boat made the best wave but the fact that it was an endless wave. A wave that can be made in places like Arizona. (No waves in those parts last time Wheelhouse scoped it out, N Case Ur Wonderin) Where land locked Folk can feel the joy of surfing a wave. No rope or pulling, just you and a wave that does not end unless you happen to fall or the boat breaks or prop gets mangled. Wether the wave is made by a Tige Malibu Centurion Nautique, Axis, etc...... it is a great time. You Know!!!!

However, there seems to be a sense of pride amongst boat owners and the waves their boats create. We are reminded of a territorial sense we felt amongst Surfers (that by the way we knew nothing about) the first time we watched POINT BREAK. A territorial sense of pride that does not answer the question of who can create the best wave and what is their personal recipe and how can they help me make mine better or me make theirs better but what BOAT can create the best wave and my boat is better than yours. The territorial discord is created from this point.

Why do you feel this way?

Do you agree we all want to promote and grow wake surfing? Yes or no? Explain.

Is it really about your boat making the best wave or enjoying your time wake surfing?

Is it about what board you do or dont ride?
