How was my Memorial Day weekend, you ask? I'll tell you how it was: IT #&*)#@_ SUCKED, that's how it was!

Three days of wind and/or cold. I mowed my lawn. Yippee.

LMAO Swass! Oh, I forgot to answer the question. We went out early Sunday on the delta (just three of us) and found no wind, lots of sunshine, only 2 other boats, and plenty of butter. We quit shortly after noon after taking 3 sets each. After that we BBQ'd with friends and got silly!

Yea, our weekends were just the shizzzpits. Saturday am thru monday pm we had chilly temps topped off with 50-70mph winds. It was just super. Did however get a bunch of yardwork done and got most of the golfcart painted so the weekend was not a total loss

Aaron: I don't see any nakedness. Email me with the good pictures!!! I KNOW YOU HAVE THEM!!

Had a great weekend. Waited until sunset to launch and got some great water at New Melones. Had one of my best sets ever on my brand new board.

Yeah i got a few naked pics! pretty sweet! That was a pic of shast at slaughterhouse island... OVer all it was great, To get great water you just drive about 5-10 minutes and usually you had a cove to yourself. We hung out wakesurfed, some wakeboarding, then in the evening partied with thousands of drunk people!

I spent over 13 hours on my local lake. By 5pm most people had left and the wind completely died so we had glass for the next 3 hours. The best day of riding and hanging out on the boat that I've had in at least a year.

We had a great time at Shasta!! We can't wait to go back in July!!

Aaron, we went by all the houseboats. We couldn't believe how many were parked there. Amazing!
We might have some pics to post also.

Shasta Wed. - Sunday - Went by the Slaughter Island College party. WOW they were really packed in. No problem finding good water around that lake for the boys to Board, Skate and Surf.

Just can't believe that many houseboats found each other ?

alee, i was there on that island too on sunday, holy was crazy, i blacked out however and can't rember anything, but it was fun while i remember, next year were taking our buddies houseboat over to slaughter island rather than crashing in our boat, and my dad was driving from mt shast to redding monday morning and said all the houseboats coming back was like the beaches of normady (sp???)
clete, thanks for the ride again

We are half way between Copperopolis and Angles.. The only thing that sucks is we have to go 3 miles up a dirt road to get to the house.. Boat gets real dusty.. We go there pretty often. We sometimes do day trips from Fremont too. We where in a Blue Lightning..

Had a great time out there with Stephen Hiltscher, Tim Jewitt, Chere, Joe Umali, Frankie, and CWS Kahuna. Rode a morning set, tied up at the dock around 12:30, bolted to In-N-Out for lunch, then hit the water again for an afternoon set. Life is good! Nice to see you guys out there, Randy, thanks for letting us use your water! . BTW, impressive backside on that Air Nautique!

Windy/Tiring/Fun!!!!!

We went to Nacimiento on Saturday. The water was way low and choppier than were too many boats for not enough water, but the party back in the narrows was off the hook.
Old    norcal_99            06-02-2004, 4:50 AM Reply   
I also went to the Nacimiento Ocean.

The entire lake was absolutely unrideable between 8am - 8pm. So we rode under the stars and almost full moon from dusk until around midnight. The water was perfect glass at that time, and with the moonlight you could see pretty good.

I was laughing at all the drunks getting tested then arrested for DUI's as they were pulling their boats off the water Saturday and Sunday.

My Memorial day consisted of driving in traffic, a $331 towing bill, a severly trashed waterpump on my truck and a day off of work on Tuesday to fix it.

If anyone has a '97 Dodge Ram and loses a waterpump, let me know. I am a self taught pro at replacing them.

By the way, I only have 115000 miles on it.

And we even got a little riding in....

And for those of you with the keen eyes.... Yep, that is me lubing up the Kidder for someone in the party that ask if I had a "hippy stick" in the boat.... Though I have not strapped it on for 2+ years.... It still sits in its bag waiting for a little love...

Memorial Weekend pretty much sucked for me and my crew. We got some good riding in on Friday after work, where I got to try my new Obrien Demented board and alpha boots. The combo is SWEET! Here's where things go bad, very bad. It started raining on Friday night and didn't stop until Tuesday afternoon. My MT bike was stolen on Friday night from my garage. Then on Sat night my buddy's F-ing BOAT got ripped off! Right out of his driveway. He even had his hitch locked with a heavy duty Master lock. I still can't believe it.. And this is in an upscale suburb of St. Paul, MN. Def not the ghetto. Today the sun finally came out so things are looking up, hopefully I'll get to dial in the board a little more this weekend.

J-Rod: There were 5 black and whites and a paddywagon at the top of the ramp. The Sheriff's boat just kept bringing them in with hadcuffs on. They also arrested some while they were loading their boats. It was basically mayhem.

Memorial Day at Shasta ROCKED!! To be perfectly honest, it was one of the best post college/graduate school Mem Day trips of all time (canít beat the good old days). We had an awesome group and great weather. Even made some new friends. Props to you Oregon Institute of Technology alumni for throwing me such a great birthday party. ďGo shorty, itís your birthday, we goín to party like itís your birthday, we goín to sip OíDoulís like itís your birthdayÖ.Flipper anyone?

If things werenít going nucking futs for me at work right now, Iíd post up some of the over 700 photos we took from the weekend. Maybe next week.

Aaron Lee, it was pleasure hiking to the waterfall with you and your friends. Very embarrassing when my pants fell down but otherwise fun. Donít change a thing buddy, you and your group are all right. Very hospitable. Thank you.

Canít wait for the next trip. Hopefully, my boat will be ready by then.

Spent Monday on Lopez Lake, Ca. AMazingly flat water till around 1:00. Got three sets in. Then all the tubes came in and rolled the whole lake. Also caught a wad of bubble gum on my hull from the dock railing.

We had a great time at Shasta. The house boats were a sight to see. ALee I think we saw you at Big Backbone on Sat. We headed to the Pit arm on Sunday. All was good until I stuck my arm thru the handle on a gainer attempt. Good thing I use a release.

Nasty!!!! What kind of release do you use? Could you post a pic of your rope with it? I've always thought that was a good idea but haven't seen one yet. Good luck with the bruise, att least it wasn't from houseboat hopping.....or was it????

Steve asnother thing that might help in the future of not getting a boat stolen is wrapping some kind of chain around 2 wheels on one side and locking it. Than again they will just bust that if they really want the boat.

Just a side note, they make hitch locks that are said to be pretty secure. The link is what I use.

Like mentioned above I rode with Jeff Frew, Tim Jewitt, Joe Umali, Frankie, Chere & CWS Kahuna on the Canyon Lake Backwater on Sunday. The water was butter all day and the air was like 100 degrees. One of the best days on the water in a long time!! It was probably the best birthday I've had(23 is old!!). On Monday I got up super early and went surfing at Bolsa Chica with 8 million others, surf was fun, shoulder high and decent shaped, lots of rides and dodging of others! Great weekend, almost done with school & then the real fun starts.

I got a kick out of watching the paddy wagons constantly leaving full of drunks from Naci. Some people didnt expect to get stopped after going 25 throught the narrows with the rangers and sheriff right there. I just couldnt stop laughing as 5 boats had to stop and blow.
