Definitely a good day today Jim! Ray wanted to thank you again, he had an absolute blast. I've watched his crash 100x already, its just as funny each time :-) And we snapped 80 something pics! I need sort through them and upload a few. And I'll definitely edit that video a little and get that hosted as well, lol.

What awesome water conditions today. First off thanks a million to Dooreen for being our third and our driver this morning. And thanks to George and Denise for the pulls.The water was flat as a board and we were the only people on the water from 8 til about 11:30. Then we had a mid day raft up with the crew. Brian and Annette nice to see you again. The water was what you hope and dream it would be every time you launch.

Paul today was the day to jump on board. I don't think anyone is riding tomorrow.

Does anyone else launch at the ramp just south of Trenton? I've been using that ramp for 12 years without a problem but a bunch of punks showed up (possibly with a rifle - I didn't see it but my wife did) when we were pulling out a couple Fridays ago so we have not been using that ramp since

Just wondering if anyone else has run into any problems there recently (other than the docks being MIA)? I have a season pass to the Croydon ramp because it is only a few blocks from where I work (its really hard to concentrate with the boat sitting in the parking lot) but from home Trenton saves me some time and gas (mostly in the boat) so I'd like to give Trenton another shot.

I'm willing to pay a reasonable launch fee but I live in PA and Bordentown's fees for out of state are rediculous (especially since the ramp is not that good). I'm already giving up $100 for one ramp permit because of the bad deal PA made with the guy running the State built Croydon ramp.

Jon, IMO the $250 spent for a season pass at Bordentown is money well spent not to deal with the trash at the Trenton ramp.

We had used Trenton for several years and invariably things got worse there each season. From the drug dealing OG's to waiting 45 minutes to get my boat on the trailer while some Mandrill has the ramp tied up tuning the dry stacks on his recently dusted off 1972 jet boat.

WOW! I'm bitter.


Oh! I forgot to mention that yesterday Anthony had a couple long runs behind the boat; he even finished the last set off with the Robot! I'm not sure who is more stoked Ant, or Annette and I.

What about the next one down from b-town, flanders i think, right? Never been on the dock/land portion, but it looks nice from the water and I believe Jim or Dave said it was a little less expensive than btown?

Jon D, Florence ramp is $500/year for you out-of-staters. You could try Burlington ramp or Curtins Wharf right next to Burlington. I believe Curtins is $75/year no matter what state you're from. I've used both ramps many times when I had my 30' Formula. FYI, you can see those ramps to your left as you come across the Burlington-Bristol bridge.

Eustace........Mandrill, that's some funny chit!

Jim, no problom Saturday. I was happy to drive you guys. You wouldn't have been able to board otherwise, and it was great watching you ride wake to wake getting big air. Your riding has much improved! Besides, Alex had the boat full anyway and Rob, RedBull Keith's friend has a 2006 SAN so he let him drive while I was with you guys. What a rider huh?
It was great mid-day stopping and having lunch all the boats tied up with everyone. I love that!

JOHAN!! Welcome back...hope Cali was good to you.

Holy Smokes a Ned needley-ned Flanders pic....NICE!

Sooooo I haven't posted much lately, just chillin and watchin things happen. Glad to see so much activity on the Deleware...people enjoying the water, warm weather and friendships, that is what this is all about!

Wakefest
Wakefest was killer! Everything about it was amazing. I was glad to see Ronn and Dorthey on a better basis than the last time we met! I really need to thank Brian(eustace) for the cooking. Justin and Micah for their help and most importantly Karen for all her help. These people really put out the effort to help make the food concession a success and I simply could not have done it without them! We have a little extra for the lake trip too!

I think Alex did an amazing job putting all the details together to make this event great. You deserve a standing ovation for your efforts. It was great to see Alex mingling and relaxing knowing that all was taken care of and he could schmooze with those that he had brought together.

JB was on fire on the mic and his style really helped keep the energy up and flowing all day long! The note about announcing thru bridge-abutments was classic, but were all pretty confident Brett landed the trick! LOL

On the wakeboard front...
Karen, Doug and I have for the most part just been riding in Avalon the past few weekends. Sat morning's seem to be best with glass from sun-up to about 10am. Then the natives get restless and we head home, take naps and enjoy Doug's margatita's during the sunset. This past weekend JB, Karen, Doug, Doug's dad and I hit the horseshoe at 7:30am and literally had glass on every run till 10:15...but by 10:30 there were 7 other boats in the channel and we called it a day. Sunday though Justin and Michele joined us and we had a great morning which ended with JB and Justin riding doubles and JB doing raley's over Justin! Was a fun site to see and people in the horseshoe were actually stopping to watch the show. We even did doubles Double-ups which is always a lot of fun to drive in the horseshoe!

I'm pretty sure I'll see a bunch of you this weekend on the deleware!

l8r,
KG

Here is my favorite pic from Wakefest!

Oh yeah. KG with the power post!

I kind of like that "thumbs up" picture. Too bad I wasn't practicing a little better posture.

Speaking of Wakefest, I've finally begun updating www.njwakefest.com
I still have quite a bit of work to do, but the process has begun. If anyone has pictures they want posted,
get them to me.

Double-ups in The Horse Shoe?? I can't even imagine how. Justin's body language tells
me he's taking preventive measures not to get clothes lined.

It should be a big day at Bordentown this Saturday. We're going to be getting there early, riding hard
all morning, taking it easy around midday, go for final sets in the afternoon (maybe wakesurf if Eustace
get his tow rope reconfigured!), and then pull-out around 5:30/6:00pm for an evening barbecue. This will
be our first post-riding Q & Chew of the year and I'm sure it will be good. Don't forget your cigars!

Hey everybody. i've been laying low myself, and getting some of the am shore riding. nice to know while i was up at 7:00 am in margate, everybody else was scoring the butter in avalon. here's a pic from last saturday, 3 hrs of sleep, i/o with a skylon, unweighted.

ps. what are plans for the tournament next weekend. people heading out....i'll be at the shore if anybody wants to ride there....

KG and Charles, Great pictures.

If the weather will let me I'm thinking about launching at Bordentown late afternoon tomorrow if anyone wants to ride let me know. I will need someone with a boat safety cert. to make this happen so I can get a pull. Or if I have a driver and a crew I could go early morning instead. Anyone want to ride just post up or shoot me an email. I'll keep checking both through out the day.

Nice pics KG and Charles! I knew it was only a matter of time until someone rode doubles with JB, and not on a tube either!

We'll be out sat. morning as well, so if anyone needs a pull give me a holler.

Charles, we'll be at the wake contest next saturday with cooler & beach chair in tow. Should be a good time. Who's entering? KG? Charles? Connor?

Alex, Nice updates on the site!!

We had such a great weekend of boarding (great referring to hanging with friends, my skills left much to be desired-lol). Saturday on the Moomba with Brian and Annette was fun (as always) and watching Anthony get up and ride was soooo cool. Then hooking up with Alex and Doreen, George and Denise, and Jim was a nice way to spend the afternoon. Thanks again Kevin and Karen for Sunday. Although the drive to Avalon after a bachelorette party Saturday night was rough, it was worth it. It was quite the show to watch Justin and JB do doubles with those crazy tubers circling us. YIKES!!

Can't wait to see everyone Saturday. Should be an awesome day!!

Thanks for the launch suggestions, being from the PA side I'll probably just stick with Croydon for now.

I'll probably be on the river on Friday afternoon and Saturday. I think I've figured out who a few of the boats belong to from pics on this site.- I finally posted a pic of mine in my profile.

I talked to Craig the other day and asked him if there's anything he needs me to do, but he pretty much
said "Just be there."

Thanks for positive reviews of the njwakefest.com, but I have a TON more pictures to post,
plus I have spruce-up the home page. I got the Atlantic City press article posted, but it requires
a double click.

Wakefest is a festival gathering and not a competition we were unable to strike a deal.

Johan, check your email. The Super Air is going to be pretty full, but we might be able to shoe horn you in.

I need to replace the tires on my old trailer. They are four-lug and the only markings I can find on them
say 6.50-13 ST and the brand is Armstrong. A brief internet search didn't yield anything that said 6.50-13
Any ideas anyone?
Old    Dave W (njskier)      Join Date: Jul 2005       07-20-2007, 5:39 AM Reply   
Alex, your new tire size is B78-13, or also 175/80-13.

I called my tire supplier (champion tire) and he has Carlisle 6-ply tires in stock for $61 each.

They're located in Ringoes, just 10 mins. north of my house. Let me know if I can help you out.

Hey Jersey Riders,
I have been meaning to get on this page to post some info on the upcoming competition in Lavallette on the 28th of July. I've been mad busy getting everything together but I see Kevin and Alex are doing great job getting the word out.

I have lived in Jersey my whole life, and have been riding here for the last eight years or so. I go to school down at Virginia Tech and have been active with the wakeboard club there. In light of everything that happened on the 16th of April, I wanted to hold an event to raise money in memory of my fellow Hokies that lost their lives that day. After meeting with Craig at Surf & Offshore we decided to hold this competition. All the net proceeds from the day are going to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund. So help me get the word out and bring everyone you know down to the beach to ride.

We are setting it up so that there is day of rider registration. Registration starts at 8am. Because we are doing all day of registration we do not have a count of how many riders will be there, so please get there early so we can let everyone ride. Registration cost is $35 which gets you riding, an event t-shirt, and free lunch.

We have tons of sponsors already and just became an official stop on Hyperlite's HyperTour. Jeff Aitken from Hyperlite is coming with his brand new Nautique to tow the comp. The amount of stuff donated to raffle off is just insane, so make sure you buy tickets.

Here is our Class List
Ladies (any age)
Grom (14 and under)
Novice (any age; no inverts allowed)
Intermediate (1 invert allowed)
Advanced (up to 5 inverts)
Outlaws (no limits)
Wakeskating (any age)
...and if we have some time left over
Wakesurfing (any age)

This is going to be a real chill, laid back competition. Come, ride, compete, but make sure you have a good time and meet local Jersey riders.

Rough Timeline
8am Rider Registration
9am Riding Starts
1pm Bikini Contest($350 purse... let girls know!)
Food All Day
Raffles All Day
Music All Day

If anyone has any questions feel free to shoot me an email at liquidaction@gmail.com.
Our website is www.LiquidAction.org
-we are working on getting even more information on it
If you have any other questions you can give me a call at 732-995-8600

Hope to see everyone out riding the 28th,

Jason

Jason,
Sounds like an awesome day for a great cause. I am sure that you will have a great turn-out from our Jersey crew. I know I can't wait!!

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Jim for last night's riding. It was an amazing night out on the water and then the Chickie and Pete's run that followed was delicious. My girlfriend Candice and I traded happy hour for it and were so glad we did. After the 15 minute hurricane (which poor Candice toughed out), the water was just butter. I don't think I've ever seen the river like that in the 15 years I've been going there. Johan, it was great to see you ride and nice to meet your friends.

See you all on Saturday!!

Like Michele said last nights riding conditions were awesome. After a quick typhoon which Candice rode out like a champ, the conditions were incredible.After we dropped off Johan and the other 2 girls We went back out and had a good time until we ran out of light.Michele , I'm glad you and Candice came out and had fun. And the Chickie and Pete's topped a good night off.

I went back to SOS on Wed. and Craig traded me out again. This time he gave me a Hyperlite Era 147 with CWB Vapor hinge techs. I rode that setup last night and I am very happy with the new setup.Craig takes very good care of his customers.Thank you Craig for all you help.

I'm going back to work all of this and next weekend, so I'll be looking for some more mid week riding. See everyone soon. Have a great weekend on the river.

Jim, let me know if you're hitting the river one night this week, I should be able to go.

Johan, I'll have my helmet with me, but I don't think it's required unless you're hitting the slider. I'll have my CGA vest also.

Roll call.........who's going to the SOS comp this saturday? My family and I will be there.

Hey Guys,

We are not requiring a helmet to ride because there are no sliders. We prefer a coast guard approved vest but it is not required. The set up is 2 passes 2 falls and if you want, a double up. On the second fall the chase boat will come to pick you up. Registration starts at 8am and riding will start at 9am. The website is up at www.liquidaction.org with all the information. If you have any other questions feel free to email me at liquidaction@gmail.com.

as for the event - anybody who wants to ride should be able to join the wwa (1 day membership) the day of the event. (i believe)

I would think that if you register for the wwa you could at least get a membership # or reference # right away that you could use, no? I dunno.... I guess its a good thing Im pretty bad so I dont have to worry about things like this haha


Definitely looking forward to Thurs too :-)

Yo Jersey riders!
I can't believe in less than a month we're all going to another wake event here in Jersey. Pretty cool.
I'm in for sure and I think the whole family will be in Lavalette as well.
And not to rehash, but riding doubles with Justin last week was sooo much fun!
Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend.
And Jeff Z, I've got a wager for you this weekend!

And I hope everyone still rides this weekend regardless of the WWA membership fees. In the world of contests, Craig and his crew HAVE to have insurance and the WWA insurance is the most reasonable thing going. Don't let an additional $10 steer you away. Have fun riding in the division best for you and come away with a great expereince!

I just spoke to Jason. If you are not a WWA member or a member of the USA Waterski Assn., there will be a $10.00 insurance fee for the day.
You will still be able to enter the comp. paying the 1 day fee.

Hey guys, just to clarify... If you are either a WWA or USA Waterski Member then your insurance is covered for the day. If not, there is a $10 fee to cover the insurance through USA Waterski. I checked out other competition prices around the on the East Coast and even with the insurance we are less than most. This is looking to be a big event, I hope to see as many Jersey riders out there as possible.

Also I will have our lodging information updated tonight on our website @ www.Liquidaction.org

Thanks
Jay

Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification guys!!

We had a great time Saturday at the Q and Chew. It was so much fun riding with everyone and then grilling and all afterwards was awesome. Although after Friday's events I was a bit unprepared, like Alex said when you're among family it's no worries. Thanks for your constant hospitality guys!!

Just an update on Justin's dislocated/bruised ribs for all those concerned. He seems to be doing much better. He went into work and has not been in as much pain. He will be on the boats again this week (driving when needed) and at the competition, just not riding obviously. I know that he's been busy and hasn't had time to post anything. Figured I'd fill you in.

Hello to all of the NJ crew from Mark Johnson's brother. I hope all is well out there. We are riding just about every day up here in Wisconsin. Our chain of lakes was a little slow to warm up to wakeboarding, but now all of a sudden there are towers everywhere and alot of irritated oldsters who never had to tie up the pontoon boats so carefully. Mark and I were really the first to wakeboard around here (and Mark was the first to do it well). It sounds like you have a great bunch of riders out there...I love the fact that you stay connected all year. Well, I am rambling.......Have a great summer! Keep in touch.

Hey Lindley,
This is so coincidence, I was thinking about mark on the way home from work today. We had a conversation at Alex's one night about tomato's being a fruit not a vegetable...was hysterical! It's amazing when you realize the impact he had on many of us. He is sorely missed.

Greetings all: Originally I had to work this Saturday and miss the Lavallette event, but I wiggled things
around a bit and I managed to free this Saturday up. Thus, Doreen, Connor and I WILL be in Lavallette this
Saturday! Connor's definitely entering the event but I'm vacilating. It's not like I have a competition run
ready or anything. I'll probably decided one way or the other once I see the scoring structure.

Ryan, I was considering towing to Bordentown for a 6:00am pre Lavallette sesh, but I eventually figured I
wouldn't have enough time at Bordentown for the tow to be worth it. Are you going to try to do both?

It's good to see you posting Lindley. I look at Mark's "New Jersey" wakeboard often, and that always brings
memories of Mark to mind. Doreen and I SO wish he was still with us. We hope you and Jackie are doing well.

Oh...one more thing. I uploaded another 40 or 50 pictures onto njwakefest.com. (still just the tip of
the iceburg). There are three different group shots, and I have it set so those three pictures come-up as
fullsize when you click on them so you can view them clearly. You have to scroll around to see the entirety
of each picture, but it's worth it. You'll see.

We are going out Friday morning for a little. Maybe we will see you out there Dave. As far as Saturday I am going to spectate. Katrina is going to compete.

I want to do both, which means I probably will miss the start of the comp...but a few pulls before would make it all good!

Anyone looking to ride after the comp? Gonna be down there all day an I guess it should be done around 5, plenty of riding time. I'm gonna be judging, as of now, so i may not even ride so I would be pretty bummed traveling down to NJ and not riding.

Jeff,
Did you smoke cigars with us out by the pool at the hotel after Wakefest?

Hey Jeff G: Most weekends I could probably squeeze you onto the boat and offer you a pull, but right
after the comp this Saturday a group of us are heading-over to a nearby "famous" New Jersey boardwalk
called Sleaze Side, uhhh...I mean Seaside, for some arcade games of chance, cheap beer and giant slices
of pizza at The Sawmill, and possibly onto the pier for some rides that may very well bring the cheap beer
and giant slices of pizza right back up. Sunday morning's a possibility if you're still in town, but at
this point the weekend weather is looking kind of ify. See you Saturday! We'll chat.

KG- Nope that wasn't me, wish it was. I was still down in VA and had to miss Wakefest.

Alex-sleaze side, sounds classy.yea i will probably be around Sunday morning, so if you do ride i would defiantly like to get a pull in.

I may actually be down in Jersey tonight, is anyone riding that can give me a pull? Shoot me an email goldblum@vt.edu or give me a call 631 662 6260. ill be checking it all day.

This page is made for POPS LEFS. I know he can win this.http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/481720.html?1185631105

Well Thursday night was another good time on good water with great people until it was dark. Glad to see Justin is feeling a bit better. Chris pulled off a bunch of surface 360's and Candice's hair looked perfect Michele rode well as always and Ken almost caught some sun chips. Next time I'm bringing marshmellows. We will do it again soon.

ahhh, i wish i saw your post sooner dave. Maybe I'll give you a buzz in the am and see how long you'll be out? I need to crash right now though. Too much celebratory drinking going on, lol....

Jim, make sure you mount the vanity mirror for candice, lol! You know she'll appreciate it! I'll see what I can do about getting an avon rep setup at the b-town ramp for her as well ;)
And of course... the marshmellows will be in full effect next time
