Nice Alex.
I too have not registered yet...but will soon. This is gonna be awesome. the southern presence alone will prove to be a force to reckon with.

That Roam pic is really bad I haven't been able to ride my Roam nearly at all this summer due to choppy conditions. Let's see, if the conditions are right I may consider riding the Roam in the Wakeoff! I can pull all my staple tricks on that board plus a few others that most don't get to see.

So, the Delaware River is now the proud owner of a new "Voyager" touch screen phone by Verizon! As Kevin said yesterday, I should check my minutes in the meantime. Do fish use cell phones?! Words can not describe how I felt as I saw the phone kerplunck in the water swirling farther and farther down out of my reach

The Garden State Wakeoff is just around the corner and I'm running around like crazy getting everything inline. We have the permit for the State Police to block off the cove to ensure the best possible water conditions and keep riders safe from other boat traffic. The GS Wakeoff Belt should ship out this week and Iím starting to assign my friends jobs for the event. The only thing I'm having a hard time with is finding someone from the North to talk as much trash as JB does!!Haha Iím glad to see that Iím not the only one on the discussion board showing some love for the north!

LETS GO NORTH!!!! Wooooohooooooo!!

Wow what a great day yesterday down in Riverside! Riverside right? I never know where I am in Jersey.

But seriously fun time on the river riding behind JB's beautiful Malibu. Everyone was on their game and fired up. Alex and Brian both hit fat double-ups, Annete was fearless as usual charging the wake, JB almost lost an arm on a huge hoochie glide, and I stuck the tantrum, and got a liiiittle closer to a raley.

Then after the riding some amazing sandwich's provided by Brian and Annette, some beers and some other "fun stuff".

Then I missed my train and had to get JB back up outa bed to come get me and what a guy he let me crash on his couch and it all worked out. So thanks so much to all you guys for the beers, the food, the pulls and awesome times! I can't wait for another day and the big wake-off which (fingers crossed) I should be able to make. Which team am I riding for again, North or South?
Later Ya'll!!

Also, I was out driving in new jersey last night with a few guys from my fraternity. we bought all kinds of couches and air conditioners off of craigslist and were driving around picking it all up. On route 130 just north of bordentown, we saw a brand spanking new xstar getting trailered back northwards. It was white up front and blue in the back, very sick looking boat. was that any of you guys?

Well, I've been on vacation all week, but I opted not to vacate. Last Saturday I rode Bordentown,
Monday and Tuesday I was on The Rancocas, Wednesday was a recovery day, I had two opportunities to
go out on Thursday but I felt it was in my best interest to put-in a little family time, and I have plans to
go out again on both Friday and Saturday. Yep. It's been a great wakeboarding vacation.

And remember, The Garden State Wakeoff is only about a month away. Over on there a couple
pictures of the North team. Here's one of them.

I took my daughter Brittany,Ken and Kim out on the river today and all I have to say is that the north kids better just stay home cause this is what the south has baby.

Well, I spoke to Ryan Sorensen the other day, and he said there are about 23 north riders already
pre-registered for The Wake Off, but only about 15 south riders. Come on people! If you aren't already
pre-registered, do it! You know who you are. Come on! We have to stack the divisions. We can't them
out number us. We have to out number them! Come on south riders...sign-up and then show-up.

Ryan also told me that he went out and bought a new PA. Not only is this good for Wake Off, but it's also
good for Wakefest! No more borrowing the PA from Island Surf & Sail, whose crew didn't even bother to show-up
this year.

Being a working slob I can only get-out on the weekends, and with the hurricane hitting this Saturday, and the
river probably being muddy and loaded with debris on Sunday, it looks like this weekend is going to be
a total wash. And I'll be at a niece's wedding this Saturday anyway. At least I won't be missing anything!
My next time out, weather permitting, will be Saturday the 13th, and I'm going to spend all my ride time
working on whatever Wake Off pass I can piece together.

I think the north is going to own in wakeoff. JB is almost a lock in outlaw, and a few of my friends from long island are coming and are all capable of placing well in advanced and intermediate divisions. Plus one of the kids I coach during the summer will be there. Hes only 13, but hes got heel 3s, toe 3s, backrolls, and all 4 frontside 180s on lock, so he could place very well in the intermediate division. Also, I landed 3 tantrums to blind in a row 2 nights ago and that is bad news for whoever is riding outlaw.

WoW today was an interesting day. First off as I pulled into the Bordentown ramp I saw Brians SUV and trailer then I saw the biggest redneck mud people sand bar party I have ever seen. Man those people don't like their boats very much. We launched and headed south to look for good water. We found choppy but rideable water. I had Joe F with me today and my daughter Brittany. Joe gave her some pointers and had her riding switch a little today for the first time. Joe put on his usually awesome aerial show for us. The Joe said I bet I can get Brittany to go wake to wake today. We pulled her at 60 feet and 22 mph and after a couple of tries and some pointers from Joe she did it. And she did it a few more times, then she crashed hard and scared me to death. All I saw was blood running down her chin so I dove in and swam to hold her. She was ok but she bit her tongue bad and the face plant peeled her lip back so hard she has a nice cut were her upper lip meet her gum line. She is sore but she is fine. We never did she Brian, Annette and crew but I did have a funny fish note on my truck when we came back in at 8pm LOL.
Here is a video of Brittany's first wake to wake jump.

Thanks for your help today Joe.

She seriously could. I have never seen a kid take a beating like that, let alone a 14 year old girl. She had to have taken 3 of the worst diggers I have seen in a while, like full blown edge catch, and kept asking to go again. It is a shame that she cant get too much water time, because with the way she progressed yesterday, she could definitely be doing some pretty cool stuff. Jim thanks for the pulls yesterday and thanks for filming all those tantrum to blind attempts, it was actually very helpful.

Jim tomorrows my post op appt. with the surgeon.
Arm feels good, still light lifting.

Tough luck for Brady... Cassel looks good though... 1-0 so far

"Brady's loss to those fantasy owners could shift about $150 million in fantasy league winnings from those who had Brady to those that didn't, according to Jeff Thomas, CEO of, a fantasy sports site. And some think that's at the low end of the spectrum since the total value of office pools is tough to ascertain.

Greg Bebezas of The Fantasy Football Times thinks Brady's impact is likely closer to $1.5 billion. "His injury will reverberate much deeper than it initially appears," Bebezas told me. He points out that Brady's absence also affects the value of Randy Moss.

The south has two more riders. Chris AKA Wakespider is going to rule the woman's masters DIV. and Patrick is riding also. I hope the South team lets a chick from Brooklyn and a Guy from Queens on the team. My knee is feeling good but not quite good enough to ride. I'll be head cheerleader. GO SOUTH

We also had glass all day out of Bordentown but my day sucked. On my first pull of the afternoon as soon as I said hit it and the boat started to pull me up it felt someone stuck a knife in my lower back and I was done. The pain got worse as the day went on but I stayed out and pulled people all day. I went to the hospital this morning and they say either a muscle tear or a pinched nerve. I am on 3 meds now and hurting pretty bad. My wakeoff run may not happen but only time will tell. I'm gonna pop my pills and lie flat on the couch for a few days and see what happens.

Woody, give me your email ill send you a bunch of music tonight. I will use my uber trendy youthful pop culture knowledge to broaden your musical horizons. If anyone else wants this list hit me up and ill send it your way too. Also Charles is right, I was looking for one of those new grabbed blind 180s, the tail grab one was cleanest so we will go with that.

Charles- you down to ride either friday or sunday? both days my boat will be on the river let me know.

Anyone else who is looking to ride tomorrow, thursday, friday or sunday hit me up. My boat is good for any day, but i sure do love leaving it on a trailer and riding other peoples boats so if you are going down let me know
