Had to dig up my under utilized youtube account. Forgive the quality, it's all 10 years old.

I'm riding behind my families 1990 Invader, with a 4.3 litre omc I/o, it has a Roswell limited tower and I think we had 5-6 people and about 500 lbs of ballast with some trim work to clean up the wake.

Few years ago. 1996 Ski Supreme with craigslist tower and desperate need of a rebuild. Cousins grandmother let me use it whenever I wanted. Never before had I ever had access to a boat I could take out with my friends whenever I wanted. Needless to say I boarded a whole lot more, made lots of friends, and started my love of the sport. When it was just a few us we would take 3 plastic totes and fill them with water in trash bags. Spent all our money on gas. Re-payed the favor to my cousin by doing maintenance and last summer rebuilt the engine/replaced all the rubber hoses and replaced the rotted stringer on one side.

From last season, a couple of spins and inverts behind our fishing boat. (Inboard with 2 people in it)

I like the inverts on that little wake. I've seen a couple of inboard cabin cruisers around here for sale cheap. I've wondered what kind of wake they would through with some ballast, because an inboard is an inboard. It may not matter that they were not meant to be tow boats.

Oops, sorry, I said inboard - it's an outboard! Brain not functioning today! But I've ridden behind so many boats and as long as they can get me out of the water, we have fun!

Look at all the great riding! I'm wishing it wasn't frozen, I might have had the balls to go try a few hs backrolls again. Despite the video proof that I have landed them it's been a few years and they just eat me for lunch. Maybe I need to take them back to my i.o lol

Here's a couple of videos from Sept. We were done riding for the day & heading back to the marina when my friend said I should try a "no ballast" set behind my 2002 SAN 210, just for fun. So we stopped the boat & I jumped in. Shortened my rope to 70ft & slowed down to 24.5mph. Had a blast! Only 3 people in the boat, no additional weight. May do more sets like this next summer.

Slowed it down to 24.5? How fast do you usually ride! Nice!

Will, I normally ride at 90ft at 26.2mph, but the majority of this past summer I rode at 80ft at 25.2mph. I'm planning to go back to 90ft next year. I just like riding long & fast, I'm more consistent that way.

I ran a blog for a few years and a pretty popular Correct Craft enthusiast site (The Wakeboard Report and The2001.com, respectively - both are now closed). I thought I had done some decent public service, all of the sites were free and I worked hard on them when they were live and tried to ensure people liked the sites & the content. Then I went to work for FUEL.TV (not yelling in all caps, that was how we had to write it) and covered wakeboarding for them. In fact the whole wake section was mine.

None of those things come close to just sitting my butt down in that outboard bass boat/fishing rig and quietly taping Scott Byerly that day. When I was encoding/transferring it from a VCR into a computer I had no idea it would come to be a video people liked so much. I mean, I hoped it would. But I had no idea it would be the one long-lasting contribution I made. I've wondered a few times if Mr. Byerly knows about the video. I got to have lunch with him that day with the rest of the clinic, and learned he was a great person to talk to and was super helpful to the entire crew that was there to meet & ride with him. I'm glad people like it, I love when it pops up. Thank you!

Just finished this edit from my time teaching wakeboarding in Cancun. We were running a 1992 Moomba with zero ballast. Even though there was hardly a wake it was still super fun!

Thank you for filming it!
I wonder though, what are you up to now? So often are the seguays of life impossible to forecast. Got any other gems stashed away on the old Gateway? (Macintosh?)

OK, at 3:37 ish in the Byerly video he does a backside board (twitch) over the main line. I have never seen anybody do this.. ever.
I think I might try to add that to my Old Guy Just Carving bag of tricks this summer.

I believe it's called a body over or line over, and comes from trick skiing.

Or check out the most recent video on the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame's FB page of Darin Shapiro killing it behind a Sea-Doo jet boat.

This is of course correct, on both bits of detail.

That was awesome, David rocks! All his inverts were like "air" tricks basically off that wake, haha.

It's all about getting out behind a boat and having fun! One of the reasons that wakeboarding had become so popular was that so many people used to do it behind anything that would get them up on the water. There wasn't the same perception about needing an expensive boat. We used to jump behind my neighbours outboards and my I/O all the time, when younger me would ride 3-5 times a day when we were at the cabin and my family had the "best boat" for wakeboarding which was only a 17.5' I/o which eventually had a Roswell tower.

Tantrum behind a 1979 ski tique with 250 lbs in the back.
Jumping over my buddy behind a 1997 MC 205 DD. Maybe 1500lbs of water weight.

Exactly! And David O'Caoimh is such an inspiration - not all about who can do the biggest competition 1080 scarecrow to blind or whatever, but more about what every day people who can't afford brand new Nautique G23s can do behind their own boats with some imagination and determination.
