Well after 3 times out now of trying, trying, trying, I'm getting over the Wake fairly consistantly. My Proggressive edge is getting better with every pull, I just need to work on my standing tall at the crest of the wake so I can get some more heighth, but man am I happy that I can finally do it.

BTW, as I was getting in the water on my first pull, I had a nasty incident involving the clip on a swim ladder and my thumbnail. It slid under it and yanked half my nail out of the nail bed and it was resting outside the skin instead of inside. Strapped it up with some gauze and some tape from the first aid kit and hopped in. If you look close in some of the pics you can see my left hands thumb is white and wrapped hella tight so I could keep goin for the rest of the day.

Heres some vids of the day.

17ft fishing boat only puts out soo much wake. At the end of the day we had my boat almost 500lbs overweight with sacs.. but the wake was SUPREME.. about 6" higher than Knee high, and I was catcthing about 2ft of air above the wake.

Next time out... start practicing my toeside, switch, and start getting comfortable throwing grabs.

You need to staighten your legs to get more pop off the wake. You could go alot higher on that wake by doing so.

Good job.

lawrence lake has really been good to me this year. It's holding temp fairly well, so it's not rediculously cold when I crash. Not too shallow, but the boat launch sucks big time.. I've been launching in the gravel since it's soo bad. But other than that.. the traffic is minimal, and the water has always been at least decent.

You look a little familiar Roy, do you know a dude named Kyle Conway? He lives out there in Yelm.

Congrats Roy. I lived in Rainier about 10 years ago, about 5 from Lawrence Lake. Keep it up.

Yup. (driver of tha fish boat) We are fine tuning the ballast and the wake. We have been changing are situations everytime we go out (not as if it were even that many times). Were getting it dialed to the max of the boat. Its not comparable to a top notch boat, but hay, what can you do? you know. You work with what you have, right? We went down to Koeppert lake after a few attempts (for roy) to clear the wake behind his boat. Koeppert lake is a pay to tow man made lake. Roy cleared it first try. Im positive its our wake thats limiting us. But we just started so look out for some upcoming vids before our seasons over. Laters Jess
