I heard a rumor at my local shop that next year Murray is joining Ronix. Has anyone heard this? If not, check around with your buds and your shop and get any low down from them. My shop said his contract with Hyperlite expires at the end of this season. I am thinking Hyperlite will renew his contract. He is such a positive role model for the sport. I can see Hyperlite trying to hold onto to him. I am going to be riding Ronix this season, so it would not hurt my feelings if he does go to Ronix. It is rider owned. And with all the buzz about thier would be a good financial decision for him to be a part of Ronix. I feel they are going to be the elite of the elite as a company. So getting in at the ground level will equal big $$$$$ in the future.

That's a negative ghost rider.

Shaun will still be with Hyperlite next year. He is currently working on his 2008 product line. Look for some cool stuff.

can you say if he will have a new shape next year? i presume thats what you mean by cool stuff.

Thanks Travis. I could not imagine Shaun leaving Hyperlite. 2008 cool stuff.....nothing you can talk about, right? I am hoping I did not make a bad decision with my Ronix Frontier purchase. Only got to demo a few boards on vacation in Florida in December. But when to buy and what to buy, right? Travis, is Shaun and Gerry going to tour this summer, like the backyard tour they were running? If so I want to schedule if they are coming to the Michigan area. I went to see Shaun last time in Michigan at a dealer. They were hounding him to sign this and do that... Me and a few friends will pay him and Gerry personally to hang with just us for a day. No dealer pushing product type scene. Just buds hangin and having fun rippin it up. Let me know. Thanks!

Rider owned? You happen to see the picture of the Square One crew in Alliance? Looks like lunch break at the lumber yard.

He will have a new shape, nothing I can talk about, but yes he is working on it with another wakeboarding icon.

And, Scott, I know that Shaun isn't going out on a bus tour this year, but I would assume Gerry is. I don't know any details though.

Thanks again Travis. Good to know! Can I somehow contact Gerry to find out if he is doing a tour? Website or something? As for the pro shop that told me that rumor about Shaun......not going to do business with them anymore. I feel they were talking crap to get me to buy the new Ronix brand because my current board at the time was a Murray. Like I mentioned before, I just hope I made the right decision with the Frontier. I will not know until the lakes thaw here in the Spring. Travis have you or anyone at the school tried the Ronix gear? Any students? Just want to get your thoughts if any. Like I mentioned before I did try the board in December in Florida, but I did not have the time to try a lot of boards to really know the difference. And Ronix supplies are still limited, so impulse decision, really.

Bocce is an Italian Greyhound...mui cool little dog. Fast as heck too, we helped catch him a few times when my wife and I were at the school.

Ya what a tactic, lie to your customers to make a wakeboard sale.

fox, you got to be smarter than that! trying to catch an IG is a waist of time(and breath) all you have to do is run away from them, they are a sight hound which means they hunt by sight. so if you run away from them they will chase you. IG's are killer little dogs!

Yes, he has really been wanting his own thread. Alot of mornings he has sat here hoping for it, but I didn't want to be the weird guy who's life is controlled by his dog. Secretly I am that guy, but I just didn't want to to be known. Now it's out in the open I feel much better.

Scott, I sent you an email with Gerry's number. I didn't really want to post it on here. And, to answer your question, I haven't really had any experience with the Ronix stuff. I think it looks good, and it seems to be working well(if you watch any of their team ride it). But, we haven't had any body at the camp yet on one.

But, back to Murray. I think his stuff is going to turn some heads next year. He has been putting a lot of thought and effort into it. And, what I have seen so far looks awesome.

Thanks again Travis. I'll check my mail for that. Love your dog. Does he swim or jump off the boat? My dad's beagle likes to jump from my boat...can not travel at slow speeds. She will jump! I can't wait to see Shaun's new gear. It sounds like it is going to be awesome. I hate sounding politically decisive, but is his new rig going to be U.S. made. I noticed that the Imperial is claiming that it is made here. I work in design for automotive...seen many jobs go over seas and lots of friends out of a job. So I have been on a kick lately...checking tags. Not that I won't buy it, but more reluctant to. Is the school open for business during the week of Thanksgiving? Is the weather usually good? We are planning our trip for that week to come to Florida with our kids. It will not be a full week unfortunately. We have to do the Disney thing, the Sea World thing. You get the point. Thanks again Travis!

Shane...actually my wife kinda squatted down and called his name and he would come running. He may have a thing for Blondes...

Back on wife rides an 05 Murray DNA. After camp it was decided that this was a very nice riding shape. I was thinking of buying an 06, but got sidetracked with some other things. I did buy the handle last year though!

Scott...definately hit up the is so worth it!

I second erics opinion, the camp is DEFENITLY worth it! The best wake experience I have EVER had, would die to go back, busy at school at the momentor I would be there now!

ya'll are funny. yeah, i said y'all. travis is wearin' off on me i guess? But I won't say mirra in place of mirror, and stayin' away from joo lie for the month known as july. i digress.
I would love to talk to the shop guys who decide to pull rumors out of the air. no plans on leaving hyperlite and working on new boards and boots right now that are looking quite nice...dudically awesome in fact.
I'm in Bend, Oregon snowboarding for one more day and the pow is incredible. wish you were here. shaun

Too Funny!! Too bad I don't have back issues of Wakebaording mag, your advertisements are creative!

You should make a section on your website where people can't view them...
Love the one when you and shaun are on the roadside and have signs...."will teach for money" or something along those lines.

Hey Shaun,

I talked with the guys at the shop that said you were joining Ronix after talking with Travis. I told them you were working on something awesome for 08 with Hyperlite. But if you want the source....Silverspray Sports in Fenton Michigan...Kimberly was the one that told me you were Ronix bound. Personally I will not do business with them anymore for my own personal reasons. I am stoked that Action Watersports is coming to the area and will be located not to far from Silverspray. I visited their shop in Hudsonville Michigan on Saturday. They are truly nice folks and know their stuff. Shaun, if you need any other information, feel free to contact me at my email, or by phone. Gerry has my number. I was talking with him last Friday about his bus tour this Summer. Glad I brought this subject up quickly, to help stop any rumors before it gets out of hand.

Oh no, hyperlite rumors!

I heard hyperlite was in the makings with Walmart and a bunch of other mass-marketing retail type stores to put their products in.

Is this true? I've seen Hobbie stuff at walmart, but to see a true hyperlite wakeboard would freak me out.

HO sells through costco, but puts different names on the skis. for example, the HO Blast combo skis are sold as HO Xtra. same product, different name. so, you know, it wouldn't surprise me.
