So I kept our expedition on Camp Pendleton a secret long enough (as promised). The trailer has finally come to life and you should all take a look - I guarantee you have never seen anything like it before.

Also, Alliance wakeboard mag just did a story and 9 pages on the week long trip - you should check it out.

Here is the link:

If you cant click on the link to get it to work - find the thread entitled "Alliance artcile" - for some reason that one works better although they are the exact same. This one is just not a hyperlink for some reason

I think it will be one of the best videos out there. As far as the tax $$$$ goes, I coordinated with other units that were already training in the area - so basically, very little money was spent on the video - we just piggy backed off of training that was already being done

Yeah Jim I can't get the link to work. Then I went to the Alliance site and I can't find it.

Jim so how have things been? We miss you out on the backwater. We were out this weekend and your name came up. When you going to come out and join us again? Hey I have a Delta trip coming up on Labor Day weekend. We have room "hint hint"

PS I saw Nathan's board for the first time, all those autographs are awasome!

jonathan and cort, I just sent you the link directly to your email accounts - hopefully it works. Some people just cant get it to start though - they get to the home page then nothing. It requires quicktime if that helps.

Jonathan, when is labor day?? haha. I'm almost done with the nightmare house (another 7 to 10 days) and have another closing escrow in 5 but it should not be so bad on that one. Give me the details and I'll let you know asap. Did you get the Alliance wakeboard mag? They did 9 pages on the week.

Jim

That video clip was so sweet! Everything just flowed so sick together. I can't wait for it to come out on video.

VERY VERY VERY COOL :-) Nice to see some trick military hardware and cool to see some marines exposed to a our sport. Probably have to fight the glare from all those shinny skulls on the bay soon :-) And awesome that you could even get this done and down on video. Will there be a Carlsbad premier?

Thanks,

Nick,

thanks for the props on the article. It really came out fantastic I think. Was a little surprised that they put a pic of me riding (it is not difficult to see which rider is in fact NOT a pro haha). Riding in the surf being pulled by a PWC was nearly impossible!

It was a great time meeting all of the pro's. They were really nice and down to earth - just normal guys. We all hung out on the beach together, everybody went to dinner one night. Parks and Watson each gave me their boards and Sharp gave his board to Gunny Fant (in the article).

In the end - it was simply a blast!

David, I emailed you the link.
