Have fun out in Orlando and come back and teach us some new tricks.

Eric, it was cancelled. It was so blown out, like it always is there in the summer. Its too bad there were alot of riders there. It was a regular day of whitecaps across the whole lake.

I think there are pics available, I thought AntBug was there. The slider was cool though. Jacob and Eddie tore it up! If they want to have an event there again they will have to start at 530 in the morning, and be done by 8am as summer is here and so is the wind there unfortunately.

Eric ~ I can't post any pics yet as Wakeboard mag is doing a spread on the event. The location was killer, but as said above the wind was pretty bad. The slider that CWB and Wakesource put up was sick. Jeff H, Jesson V, Eddie and Jacob V, Kevin B, Tony C and many more were killing it on the slider.

The comp was every rider had 7 minutes to do what ever they wanted to. D-up's, Slider, and Wake to Wake. Most riders hit the slider due to the water, but some were killing it. I liked Kevin Birds run. He started with a whirly and next tried a crow mobe then a BS 3 to a grabbed backroll. He just slipped out on the mobe but to see someone throwing down in water conditions like that was unreal. I think he tried 3 crow mobes and was so close on them. All in all it was a sick event and will be much better next year. I was talked with Josh Lamar (coming soon) and Steve Bates and the ideas were just flowing for next year.

Sorry not canceled. Erase that. It was so short that all the riding may have been completed in 1.5 hours. I missed most of the riding, 'cause we gave up on watching and headed out to ride ourselves on another part of the lake. There may have been like 20-30 people watching it. Everyone seemed to be racing in the Xterra games.
I think the slider is still there, they said they were leaving it, not sure though.

So who won the event Ant Bug?

The event had a few different winners.

Best rail = Jeff House
Best d-up = Brandon Poser
Best trick = Brandon Poser and it was so awesome!
Best Wake to Wake = Jesson Vedel

There were a few others but I don't remember.

What boat were you in?

the Blue and White 06 SANSE.

We were able to get my 6 year old up for the first time and my wife got up as well. So I had a successful day. I just wish it would have been better conditions for the riders. Maybe next time Josh will consider starting it around 6 pm, he may have better luck.

Event went really well...we were at the mercy of the Xterra master schedule, so had to run when they told us. Water was rough, but the guys threw down anyway. Jacob V ignored the wind chop and set the tone early with the wake tricks. I was amazed at what the guys threw in spite of the wind.

Here is a shot that I took...Ant Bug was the photo professional on hand and will have the quality stuff.
