I was just sitting in my garage tonight and looking at all of my wakeboarding gear and thought man I went through some money this year.

1. My handle is all torn up
2. I tore the heels of two pairs of bindings
3. My Ibex has hairline fractures all over it and looks ten years old.
4. I have scratched both sides of the decals on my boat.

Its been a great season!

1 broken handle/rope because a friend ran over them with our boat.
1 broken board because we tried to see who go do a backroll with the least amount of air
1 broken heart because the season is over in the north

My ibex also has hairline fractures all over it. It looks terrible and really pisses me off because I have been more then careful with it. Also, I let some friends use my handle some and they dinged it up pretty good. I don't suppose Ronix will do anything about the spider cracks ? I know some of the older ronix one's did this too ?

Broke one board

My CWB Factions/Embers still look like they are barely broken in. They held up better than any other binding I have owned.

Blew out the heel on my Transits, and the very next day broke the mounting plate on a pair of Ronix One's.

I just remembered this one. I just bought new sunglasses and had them on while putting my board on. My wife says "sunglasses", I turned and tossed them to her and they went right in the lake. She was upset but I replaced them that day

Logan - who cares what it looks like, that board shreds!

no i didnt even think ab that one. that one was retired last season but it kept gettin put back in the mix after all the new ones got used up, or swalled by the prop, but it was a trooper so it deserved to go out like it did.

"Warranty. Or sponsors."

If you're breaking that many boards, you're probbly covered by both.

Breaking several boards = going super big

I want to know how you "wear out 2 handles"? I ride a ton, year round, and only replace a handle like every 18 months.

I'm rocking the spider cracks in my Ronix One as well but the bindings have actually held up surprisingly well. After 2 pairs of Murrays and 2 pair of 3ds last year I believe I'm stickin with the Ones for a while.

BG has a stack of broken boards at the house. He's probably around 8-9 for the summer and a pair or two of bindings.

He's got some of the strangest breaks too. the handle thru the board is classis, he also punched the corner off of one coming down off a dub earlier this year. hahah

Drysuit seals, binding laces and two bungees....

I've been lucky, haven't really broken anything this year, except for the grip on my Ronix handle is peeling apart at only 5 mos old :-(, and the jacket on my last 5' extension (to 75')on my mainline is frayed, but I usually ride at 65' anyway so it doesn't really matter.
Old     (helinut)      Join Date: Apr 2007       10-22-2008, 2:53 PM Reply   
Handle is toast, but that's from 4 seasons of use.
Took out all the running gear of the boat from hitting a rock bar. $6,001.34 bill on that one!

Great year! Missed 3.5 weeks of July from the boat damage so only put 55 hours on the meter. Friends were awesome in putting up cash for gas too!

3 Broken boards, working on my 4th now as it has a few cracks in it.
Did pretty well on bindings this yr, last yr I went through 3 pairs of Shanes and a pair of Watsons and this yr I only went through one pair of ones.
Soaked an Ipod in tea
I think thats all the damage I have done. But the season is not over, heck it's never over for us!

here goes:
My CWB bindings held up all year... and are still going strong now! My transcend platinums have had a little less luck.
Otherwise, fairly non-destructive season!

Clayton, I think you have the right idea, add some padding and you have new custom seats in your ride!

I don't have any pics, but I was in Iraq all summer and let my younger brother use the boat this summer. When I came home on vacation I found my boat is this condition. Volt meter gauge was gone..???? The rear ski locker cover was completely cracked. The rear seat had torn down the entire seam. The observer's seat was the same. Boat hadn't seen wax since last year, and no oil change.
