Welcome home Shima.

Man what a great trip out to the lake, pics don't really show how nice it was. I can't stop looking at them and wanting to ride.

Thanks Josh, it's nice to be home, at least for a few days. Looks like you got some great water that day. I leave on Nov 5th for 5.5 weeks, let me know if any of you head out on the water before the 3rd.

Ahh man, looks like you 4 had a great session. Dave & Dewey, I like the lids you were sportin'! LOL

Wish I could have made it out with you all, didn't get home from work until nearly 2pm.

You know when you have one of them sessions where it feels like everything came together? Well my last set was just that, it seemed damn perfect with grabs, inverts, wake jumps TS & HS, great water... My last hit was a huge HS FS 1 with what we were thinking was a slob grab but slob is on the front of the board. Thanks to David for "Try a HS FS 1 with a nose grab!" when he was bringing the rope back to me. Everybody rode great and is always a good time to get out with the Winter Crew. Dewey did get clowned with his wig on!!!

David ~~ Huge thanks for the pulls and the idea to get out.

Jason ~~ Thanks for the pics, I'm sure David got a few great pics of ya.

David ~~ Thanks for the pulls!

Man was it a great day on the water! Nov. and almost 70 deg and flat as can be water. Chase was killin his TS and HS 3's and went for a Toe 5 that was almost perfect. David for some reason was killin the pop and from what I can tell he had one of his best sets of the season. You might even catch him with a pic going for that tail grab. I myself got in a few grabs that I have never done before, can't wait to see the pictures. Hurry your ass up David!

Very nice guys! Not fair that you're hitting my stomping grounds without me though LOL!

Josh, that chicken salad grab is sweeeeettttt!
Old     (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005       11-08-2010, 11:00 AM Reply   
Shima ~~ David has brought up that's a Roast Beef Grab... Chicken salad is your front hand through the legs and the beef is your rear hand through the legs grabbing the heel edge. But yes the grab felt pretty damn good!
Hope the trip so far has been great for you and your team... Take it easy out there.
Old     (ryan_shima1)      Join Date: Sep 2002 Location: Layton, Utah       11-08-2010, 11:21 AM Reply   
Actually, a RB is the same hand as a chicken salad, it just depends on the way you're grabbing it. You grab a RB with the rear hand with your palm in a normal position (wrist pointed up). A chicken salad is with the rear hand too but the arm is twisted so you grab the heel edge with the wrist pointed towards the board. Maybe the pic is playing tricks on my eye's but it looks to me that your wrist is twisted, pointing downward.

Still trying to get over the jet lag, just got on the ice today for the first time since the Dutch had their championships this weekend so we couldn't skate at all until today. Freaky Deeky Dutch!

All this roast beef / chicken salad discussion is making me hungry! I think your right though shima roast beef is palm up, basically a stalefish grab but between the legs instead of around the back leg. Either way that's a pretty legit looking grab

Haha Dave, I just finished eating dinner so I'm fine! LOL

It is a very legit grab, nice job fella's! (still not happy I wasn't there though, haha!)

Matt ~~ Them pics were from last week. David still has a ton more to go through and post up. We had sunshine and smooth water to deal with, one of the best fall session yet!
Maybe we can get out another couple of times... That is all on the sun and temp though!

Lets just say we found out how fast an impeller burns up when the raw water valve is closed

We also discovered that if your going to carry a spare impeller, it should be new with a gasket... not an old one that looked good when you change it years ago and subsequently dries out and is brittle as F from sitting in your glove box for 3 years

Side note... Dewey is MacGyver like at making gaskets with a pocket knife and discarded donut boxes from the dumpster!

My drysuit is shot, but I am down to throw on the wetsuit and ride if the weather is decent. I bought it off ebay unused with tags and it lasted one ride. I am getting water through the fabric part of it! damn!

Hey guys thanks for the warm welcome. I just got back into town from a brief stint in Eden, but I am ready to go whenever anyone else is. Like I said I don't have my **** out here yet but I'd be psyched just to get out and see some glass.

Victor- I'm from Vermont, Utah doesn't have cold enough weather to scare me away from a session! When are you thinking?

hey I just moved to the salt lake area for the job, wasn't sure if I'd be able to find people to ride with and glad to see that theres a scene around here.
I think I missed most the cold but if anyone is ever looking for a driver, a third, or just some weight in the boat I'm in! i got a drysuit withseals if that is a problem!
