So on RJs birthday, he wanted to surf. That has been the tradition for a few years. We take him out and everyone just sits back and lets him surf as much he wants for the entire afternoon. Its a big deal, because we are a big family and everyone wants to surf and we usually have 1 or 2 guests. So there is always 6-8 people that want to surf when we go out. No big deal for an older fat guy, but the kids can surf much more if there was more time or less people. On this day, we had some friends that were going to be on the lake so I asked them if it would be alright if RJ at some point during the day could jump on their boat to get a ride, Maddie in tow to film. The idea was that he wanted to surf as many great surf boats as he could in one day.

Every single one of these boats was owned by a wake snob like the rest of us and weighted well, they all made great wakes. So he got to ride:
  • 2012 MB B52 23 WB owned by Derek and Megan Miller
  • 2011 Supreme V226 owned by the Harringtons
  • 2007 Tige 24Ve owned by The Sos family, former boat.
  • 2013 Tige Z1 owned by Kyle and Korinn Wood
  • 2012 Tige Z3, the current boat.

There was a centurion avalanche weighted pretty good but they left early and RJ never made it to them on time. I got a bunch of pics and video, video will have to come later. I figured with all of the reviews posted and such, these pics are pretty relevant, especially since these are more from a dialed setup, not a demo.

Starting with the B52:

RJ was getting ready to ride a Mendonesia Ashley Kidd model, but I think it was a bit too small for him.

Sorry the watermark is ginormous on a few of these, I just noticed. One camera is lower res, and it caused that.

This is a really good wake shot.

For some reason, Maddie didn't get any shots of the 226, but I got this one, and she got plenty of video.

This is just a real cool picture of a TWP board from that day.
