Sweet!! I'm dying to get out.

Andy, I've got you beat. I was out on New Years Day 2008 on the Mississippi. It was 1 degree with a -20 windchill. Freakin' cold!

^I saw you sold the Bu, congrats! Do you plan on getting a new boat or what's the word?

I'm going without this season. The plan is to ride behind friends' boats and do test rides behind demo boats in search of the ultimate wake. I'm planning on getting a new boat in '09 unless I like being boatless. I'm hoping that I like the wake on a new VLX, because I like the style.

Talking about the "Pay It Forward Murray Thread" it would be really cool if one of us guys in the north east metro would get a board up here to demo. We could all get together and it would be a great time to meet each other and just a great day on the lake. I may be out of town for a couple of months but if someone is interested in this put your address in the thread that is going on right now. When I saw this, for some reason I thought of Eder, I've never met you but you seem like a person that would jump on this and organize something. Any thoughts?
Old    Jay (ironj32)      Join Date: Jan 2007       03-11-2008, 5:55 AM Reply   
if you really want to demo the board hit up Midwest Mastercraft. although, i doubt they are going to want you to sign your name and what city you're from on the board.
Old    corey king (snowboardcorey)      Join Date: Jan 2004       03-11-2008, 7:25 AM Reply   
Yep, you can demo almost any of the pro model boards, some of the non-pro branded upper level boards and mid to upper end slalom skis at MWMC. Just don't let Jay ride it cause you'll end up losing your deposit, that guy breaks boards like their made out of cardboard.

I don't have anything set with wakeboarders yet but I have deal cooking with pro skier Marcus Brown where we'll have a limited amount of slots open to go skiing with Marcus, demo skis and ski behind Marcus's personal ProStar 197.

Don, i saw you put your name on the list, beat me too it!

Nick, I will post my address as well and Don and I (and whoever else from MN) will try to get that board up here in MN. If it comes our way, I will definitely set something up, although Don already has a great idea and offered his boat for the demo . The season is right around the corner...Nick, when you get back in town, lets meet up and ride sometime. I wanna check out your new ride my man!

I will definitely get in touch with you, however I will not have anything done to my boat that I have planned but will work on it as soon as I get home. Worst case is we would have to fill all sacs with a pump you throw over the side, not that big of a deal. But I would hope to have everything done after about a month. I won't be around until about mid June.

Nick, by then ill have my wakeboarding legs back so it will work out perfectly haha!

No worries bout the sacs brother, i do the same, im 21 and cant afford a V-drive yet! Besides, Sacks arent that bad and the upside from automatic ballast is that you can see how much you fill the sacks themselves and place them where you need them! I love my wake and im sure your's will be just as sick! We gotta get our Setters out together sometime and shoot some pics or vids man, it would be sick!

It is a nice boat he has. I had the pleasure of seeing it nov 11 last year, out last day out. Needs a little work but will be a really nice rig once it is done. going to iowa nick? I think I am gonna hang back for the year. I have plenty of time to spare right now and the break is nice. I have a lot of stuff to do to the house too so I will stay busy with that Im sure.

Sinko - WORD! the mississippi is calling my name right now.

Corey - i basically refuse ride other peoples stuff, i would feel so bad if i broke their gear...i'm going to get 3 boards for this season, so when one breaks i have at least two backups to get me by until the broken one gets replaced & returned to me. i called obrien last night to see if they had a limit on how many warranties i am allowed, and they said unlimited as long as it's with in the given warranty period.

I'm heading to Vegas on Monday. I've already talked to Jonny with WakeLV.com and hope to get out a few times down there. That would be awesome. I plan to stay down there until mid June and then be back here for the summer.

I was moving boats around today just so I could be outside, no jaket needed!!!

No worries Jay, in a pinch I'd let you ride my setup, if nothing else its a good excuse for me to get a new one.

Jay, if you're interested in an '07 Hyperlite Imperial board, 135 or 140, or Murray bindings, size large, send me a pm. I'll hook you up with a good deal. I have several of these boards and bindings, so I'll hook up any of my fellow Minnesota riders.

I also have a ton of Accurate handles (Catalyst and Zero-g) and A-lines coming in within a couple of weeks if anyone is interested.

Check out my other site:

http://www.wakeskiworld.com

I should have it up and running within a couple of months.

BTW, O'Brien rocks!!

Forgot to add: I got 54 degrees on the car temp thingy, way way stoked on the warmness!

Yea, we have a video of some of the first stuff here at the shop. Might be on youtube.

The stuff behind the boat is still in production. Talked with Pete (the front man for wakeskis) and he said that they have been filming a ton of stuff behind the boat this winter.

Whats up fellas, its been awhile since i've been on wakeworld.
We still have 4ft of ice on the lakes, so no wakeboarding anytime soon.

I have a 07 roam 144 for sale if anyone is interested....let me know.

tuneman - thanks for the offer, but i'm gonna be getting two brand new boards (either the obrien player, cartel, or coda) so that i have a warranty to fall back on. i'll also have my slingshot recoil for backup as well.

sinko - i too had 54 on the car temp thingy. had the sunroof and windows all open. also, i'll see if i can't get some video of the wakeski's...his mom and dad might have some footage that they'd be willing to share.

mark - i'm seriously contemplating hitting up the river this weekend if the temps reach the high 40's or low 50's.

andy - i'll most likely be purchasing a board or bindings from you at some point this season. are you gonna be able to handle 40-50 degree water when you get back from O-Town???

tuneman - you're right, Obrien does rock. i called them to see if i could get a replacement part for my Xenon's (the plastic lace lock wears down and doesn't hold after a while...the '08's have an aluminumn one which is supposed to hold better), and they said that they could send me just the replacement part, but if i wanted they'd send me a brand new pair...so I have a new pair of Xenon's on the way!!!

Moxilla - I'll be at the dome for the supercross!!! On Friday I'm dropping off our 07' X-Star down there, it's gonna be in the middle of the track from what I understand. I tried to get a pit pass since I'm dropping the boat off and I got shot down big time. No pit passes in MN.

Sinko - I had no luck in locating a demo SST, we do not have one nor does the LF rep. I'll keep my eyes peeled, I'd have to imagine we can scare one up.

Basically a comfortable/ergonomic vest that is CGA, I was looking at the PDF catalog and checking on either the Division Spur/inmate, or the Swat Logo.

I have an O'neill Gooru, but am a little tweeked after taking a few headshots last year and the vest not floating me to well.

Saftey first!

Sinko, the Helium Line is SICK! I had an Oneill Outlaw and loved it, gave it to my uncle, bought an Oneill Gooru and hated it, never used it, sold it, didnt even like how it fit. Now im rockin the Ronix vest and its not that padded but i like it a lot. Nothing compared to my Sanders vest i used to rock before i lost weight and it didnt fit anymore. Next vest and forever on will be Helium, even the CGA arent that bulky, if you have never tried one on, The-House carrys them, go try one on brother.

EVERYONE - My boat is in storage and cant be out before April 1st, BUT, if anyone is gonna build up the courage to go out before that, and wouldnt mind having me as a third, let me know! im good for gas money and cleaning..and meeting my fellow MN WW'ers. My boat is yours when the time comes as well! Later!

Speaking of Helium..

Has anyone else seen the auction on ebay for a ton of Helium gear? Seems like it would be a good deal for a couple people to hit up. I think there's 28 vests.

Just search Helium Wakeboard on ebay, and let me know if anyone is interested in splitting it up?

_JB, if you got your boat with ya, get her ready to ride, thats something you can do outside...if not, do as i did, go for a jog man, its wonderful to get tired and breath cool air, not dry FREEZING air which seems to puncture the lungs! ha!

BTW did anyone get a WW jersey!? i was definately thinking about it but I just dont have $40 to throw down on a jersey at the moment...i have to make up my mind by tomorrow apparently tho..so..anyone...think its worth it?

Andy haha yeah, something like that, my buddies and I made the trip to O-town last summer. We drove straight through, no BS. Took us 26 hours but it was so much fun! After that, we drove NE to daytona beach to do some beach partying for a couple of days and drove home. I think, including days of travel, we only left for 5 days (i had to be back for work), but totally worth it! I think we might do it again this summer and if we dont find time, we're def hitting up Kansas, we were there two years ago, but O-town, without a doubt was much, MUCH better

Eder, I got the white/blue jersey - I didn't get it to ride in, I figured it would just be a good shirt to just wear on the boat on super hot days, plus it helps support the site so I figured why not (I don't own any Bball jerseys to date, so it's somethin new!)

That's my take on it Sinko, i want to support the site, but im sure if i pass on this opportunity, somehow, i will be able to support the site again. I dont own a Bball jersey and dont know if i would like it, to ride or just to wear. Im still thinking bout it though, the more i see it, the more i want one.

Realistically I won't be getting out until at least the second week in April. Between Dan going on vacation and then me I won't have much free time between then and now.

Oh yeah, I have no boat yet so that really hinders the wakeboarding.

With ice aas thick as it is and the weather not cooperating, I would venture to say it might ne about 2 weeks in april till ice out in the cities. I will be out tuning the boat but probably wont ride in april for the first time in 10 years. The hand surgeon nixed that for the year.

Drove back to STP from Winona this morning and Peppin was open somewhat. I think next weekend is going to be a no go because we will still be iced in. It does give me a weekend to clean the boat and make sure everything is good to go.

Andy, you ever cruise north of Bald Eagle up to Big Marine? Family has a few places on the lake.

well the weather did not cooperate this sunday...35 degrees is a little too chilly. i checked out the launch at boom island in minneapolis, and that is still frozen over. i guess it is pretty shallow up in champlin right now...a guy might mess up the hull of his boat. does anyone know of any other launches on the river that are open to the public?

The supercross was awesome even if I was partly deaf afterwards and yeah the boat got a little dusty, thats why we took an 07' demo instead of a brand new one. I work for Midwest MasterCraft in Crystal.

The boom island launch should thaw pretty quick if we get some more warm weather but the 2-5 inches of snow predicted is not going to help.

Does anyone know how the launch is on the Mississippi...the one that is just south of the 694 bridge?

I dont think i would use that lauch. It seems pretty shallow in that area. My friends used that when they had an I/O and they ripped off the skeg on their lower unit when they were coming in. That was the last time they used that launch.

Alright, how about this. I set up a family with a day of riding with Josh palma. They are headed to florida in the morning and to the lake on Thursday.

If we can't ride here at least someone from here can ride there!
