Going to stand up paddleboard out there and check out my 1st flugtag. Last time here in Tampa we had 110k people in attendance. I know a good crew of the Orlando wakeboarding pros will b out to watch.

Anyone local on this site going to be out?

Any pics. Tried to find it on TV but couldnt. Always looks like a good time, especially on the water.

It was a NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!. The ground was complete muck so anchors were not holding and the wind was blowing so it was a constant battle to find a spot. I was maybe the 4th or 5th boat there (launched the boat at 7 AM to guarantee a good spot) and wound up leaving half way through (to go ride) cause I spent the entire first half trying to secure the boat somewhere and missed all the flutag launches. Also due to low tide and everyone in front of me powering there boat on there was a big mound in front of the launch which I was unaware of and absolutely mangled my prop.

That it was! I hopped on my buddies 35' sailboat and the anchor broke loose 5-6 times easy, I saw 6-7 boats tied together break loose and go drifting into other boats. The wind, tide change and channel made it horrible. I never fall off my sup and I got thrown off twice by weather conditions.

I was out on my sup and was almost taken out a few times. After awhile I just gave up as well. These are just some pics from my phone.
