Christopher - Yeah, I have been trying to keep up, but I still have piles of tapes that I haven't even looked at yet. Maybe I ride too much...haha!

Hey Christie, great video. What was the music on that vid? You should put a "credits" section at the end telling who the riders were and what the artist and track were.

Christie, once again great footage. That crash of Greg where he attempts a back roll was awesome! Down then back up with no board...ouch! No wonder we didn't see you Saturday, we were in Vickie's! Thought about the road, but every one voted for the V. Sure to see ya out there soon...your 180's are coming along. Great job!

Christie, most interesting to me video from a bunch of really interesting stuff. Always wondered what might happen if you totally mess up the takeoff on a hs backroll and hit your head on the wake. Mark almost solved that one! 89- I'm surprised more people weren't out! How much weight in your boat?

You Nor Cal thieves. That's my patented backroll to backflop move. It's taken me over a year to perfect that move!
Old    eyesman            01-08-2004, 9:46 AM Reply   
that's still yours. i think gregs was a backroll to belly/face flop

Eric - Great suggestion...maybe I will do that in the next vid. The song is "I Put My Trust In You" by John Lee Hooker.

Teri - We ended up just hitting RR since the wind was blowing NW. It usually affects Victoria the most if it is blowing in that direction. I had to get off the water early to head to the airport so we just went straight to RR.

Steven - My boat is weighted with the MLS, two hard tanks in the rear lockers (250lbs each), the wedge and 650lbs of lead (260 in bow, 195 each rear locker).

Cliff - You know what they say...imitation is the best form of flattery...haha!

Christie: the wake behind your boat looks, from the videos (and the easy pop you guys get)awesome; and it is produced with just 1150 lbs plus the wedge, gas, people beer and gear? I am looking to get a better wake boat (been looking at the SANs and the X-2) but I hear the Malibus are less expensive. If I go bu I'll tell them to send you a referral check!

Christie- Awesome video as usual!
Teri- Greg and Dave found their "wings" on a few flights... we should take notes!!!

Thanks Christie,

I really like the videos and find myself also wondering the song/artist. I like how we can see who is riding and put faces to names.
I must have an archive of 10-12 of your videos.

I don't mean to be rude, but that was the UGLIEST toeside backroll attempt i've ever seen.
Old    eyesman            01-12-2004, 5:06 PM Reply   

do you know the rider you are cutting down? i don't think you do. it is rude to make comments like that when you do not know the rider. let's see some of your attempts or do you nail every trick on your first try.
take care,
Old    stormrider            01-12-2004, 5:16 PM Reply   
Dave, I think you are overreacting. How is Jonathan's comment any different than yours that "greg's backroll was painful to watch"? What difference does it make if you know Greg or not? He said the roll attempt was ugly, not Greg. There wasn't anything personal in it.

I don't know any of the riders, either. But I love Christie's videos-- the good, the bad, and the ugly-- because her videos are fun. I don't know, I'd just hate to see this thread get nasty.

It was a little rude. Just a bad choice of words maybe. Maybe offer some pointers instead of just criticism.
Old    ontrider            01-12-2004, 5:52 PM Reply   
Sorry, I thought it was a funny crash and I enjoyed watching it and the video... that's all.

Maybe offer pointers? Wait until you feel the pop off the wake until you initial your roll. Tuck your knees in toward your chest to help your rotation. Hope that helps even though I'm just an ass.

Man that was a sweet video. All the landing of the tricks and the ending full of wipeouts. is there a way you can slow motion some of those tricks and wipeouts christie?

O.K. Guys and the heck do you keep your hands from freezing when the temps are that cold. I live on the east coast and went out when it was 45 and water temp 43. Dry suit worked great and feet were not so bad but when we came out of the water, our hands froze!!!! We tried rubber surgical gloves under ski gloves but still could only last about 10 minuts. Any advice for us crazy cold weather riders?

Mark, personally I haven't had an issue. I've worn regular water ski gloves and we keep the hands up out of the water when we fall. In other words fingers to the sky! They do get cold and we warm them in the boat, but for the most part on the water I wear water ski gloves and one of the gals wears drysuit gloves!

Mark, I am the "other gal" that rides with Jetgofish... I have worn the drysuit gloves a few times. Still doesn't stay waterproof, or even that warm, does help with them not freezing all the way though... Overton's has Chotas Neo/Fleece Cold Water Gloves (item #33085 $27.99). I got them in last week, and hope to try them out this weekend. They feel awesome, fleece lined, waterproof strap, curved fingers with grippy sticky stuff. We will see, but I think it may be better than frost bite. I will let you know!!

Deep Six scuba gloves. You can find them in any scuba shop. We use them up here from November through March. Your hands stay completely comfy and warm.

Christie Fisher,

I am wondering why all of your videos are squashed horizontally. Is it your software going from 16:9 to 4:3 or are you doing it intentionally? I'm just wondering. It's like movies used to be on TV before they started doing letterbox and pan-and-scan. It looks kind of weird.
Old     (cfisher)      Join Date: Apr 2002       01-13-2004, 11:12 AM Reply   
Salmon - It is because I am filming in 16:9 and when I export to .wmv is gets squashed. When I export to mpeg2 and burn to DVD, it looks awesome on my TV in 16:9. That is the primary reason why I choose that format. Maybe I am doing something wrong when I export it to .wmv for web posting.

What software do you use? I know I've seen some WMVs at 16:9 but I'm not sure if it's only some software that will do it. Oh, well. It just makes everyone look really skinny and your wake more like a SAN.

Hi All:

Thanks for the advice on the gloves for the cold. Maybe I can get out in March this year, or when the ice melts, whichever comes first! Stay warm.
