We had a great day out on the lake yesterday, With Andre the Giant as our guest. Liz really stepped up. She learned a Half cab and a 180, and by the end of the day she had them dialed in!
Here is some video. The last clip shows her hitting 3 half cabs and 3 180's in a row!
Check it out!

i thought that it would have been wake to wake with the exitment that you had

That was not called for. She learned something new - sorry it wasn't "stoke-worthy" enough for you.

Cool man. I too thought you meant she was doing wake to wake stuff, but that's cool either way. I get really excited when my wife progresses too. I think the first time she cleared the wake I was more stoked then when I landed my first 3.

Nice Mike. I wish my girl (Theresa) could ride like that!

What lake is that?

Dane, take her out more. Get her a lesson. Have her ride w/ girls that can ride.

Since you felt the need to mention her name, should we infer that you have more than one?

Does Theresa know about this?

More than one? No way! This is a rare case where one is better than none and one is better than many!

Joe, its more of an interest/drive thing. She did do a lot better when I had other aggressive rookie women on the boat.

Way to CYA, Dane!

Thanks for the good words, guys. She had worked on these last year, and we ran out of season before she hit 'em. This is year two for her on beautiful wonder lake Illinois.
She is very stoked, and plans to start hitting the toesides before taking it wake to wake....I will post more vids soon

Guess what! I went out tonight and got the other two frontside 180s - toeside regular and toeside switch! I call that four new tricks in two days.

Christopher- yeah, we had a great time yesterday with unseasonably warm weather and a guest from SD -- good times, good times. The guy has awesome mechanics and was a blast to have out on the boat. He helped my big buddy learn deep water starts too which will help us save gallons of gas!

That first 180 is difficult to learn. Good job.

I must admit that I was holding my breath everytime she landed. Expected a face-smacker every time she landed sideways.

I hear ya. If I landed sideways once, I would probably lose my legs from the shins down.

way to go! i did fall a few times being land sideways. i could hardly remember them tho...
