Squid, and likewise I want to thank you and everyone else I've met. Riding has become truly fun again and I'm not beating myself up so hard. I enjoyed sitting around talking with you about the history of the sport as we both know it and the directions it has come over the years. I know I'm not the only one who was trying to keep their jaw shut watching you when you're on your game and ripping.
I'm hoping this year I can help with the scene in Alberta. I was elected as Wakeboarding Director for Waterski Alberta. I'm trying to bring some of the stoke and feel from California to our scene. I can't lie, I won't be doing quite as much as this position could have me because the Director of Training Shawn Gratzfeld will be helping me out immensly. We're planning on tackeling the challenge as a team and bringing in some fresh ideas.
I know it doesn't quite work but in saying, I really need a few boats to have enough room for all of you, you just won't fit in 1 anymore, too many of you have welcomed me and I in turn will always have room for you.
