Because I fear Kevin is too shy to post it... We picked up his X-Star last weekend. Look for us at Wakefest :-) Upload

Beautiful boat Chris & Kevin. Congratulations. I'll definitely give it a good look-over at Wakefest.

Hello Joe F: We sort of have a running theory/joke here, that all the pictures taken on the river
end-up having the power plant in the back ground. Your pictures totally reinforce that theory!
Welcome to the New Jersey thread Joe. See you on the river, and see you at Wakefest. And if you're on
the river and you see a white Super Air Nautique with a blue and gray stripe blasting obnoxiously loud music,
be sure to roll-up and say "Hey!"

Good to have you posting Gavin. Yep...see you at Wakefest!

Cool riding pictures on the blog JB.

Johan: When those helicopters flew over I definitely thought of you. Very intense. Get home safe brother.

Welcome to the thread Joe! If you get a chance check out www.wakeboardnj.com and Wakefest 08 is sure to be a good time. I'll be working the grill so stop by and say hello.

Funny Alex! I think the Power Plant image is moving from theory to a phenomenon. It even found its way into Push Process.

Nice boat Chris & Kevin, look forward to seeing you at Wakefest.

Its great to see so many people riding this early in the season, my start is still a little ways off as baseball season is in full swing. We won our first game 11 - 2 and tonight Anthony takes the mound as the starting pitcher. Go Bulls!

Hey Joe,
Welcome to the thread. And to reiterate what Alex said, Oh Yea the Powerplant is in full effect! A lot of us have been watching the water temps on the river for the last few weeks. The temps are creeping into the low 50's and with a few warm days should be really tolerable.

Whats up Gavin. Docks going in soon, I know that feeling.

JB, funny story on the complaining neighbor.

Eustace, I got a new logo for the aprons...and a new cooking idea for the dogs! Can you say blow-torch?

Hey Joe! Nice to see you posting on here.
(Joe and I have been e-mailing back and forth for a few months)

As you can see, lots of friendly riders on the river. So how do you like the river so far? Looks like you had some great butter last saturday.

Oh yea, I like your board too! :-)

Chris and Kevin, nice pic of the boat! Bet you can't wait to hit the water with her.

It is definately a little different from what I am used to, but it has been flat every time i have seen it so I have no complaints. The power plant makes for some good photos too

Yeah Joe! Looks like you have the fever like the rest of us!

I'd like to mooch a ride with you if you're going out in the near future. This may be my last mooching as my ship's coming in next week!
Aw yeah!

Ill be on the river around 5 tomorrow until dark, but the boat is pretty full already, 13 kids in one x2 is a tight squeeze, but friday morning I will be heading back down to the river probably alone because my dad has work and my friends all have school. Fortunately I dont have class fridays so I have nowhere to be all day. Anyone who wants to come down and mooch a ride is more than welcome to. Just shoot me an email and ill let you know what is up tomorrow some time. Ill probably head down around 9 or 10 am and we would be meeting at the Trenton launch ramp right by Trenton marine center.

Joe, see you friday.

Johan, hope everything's going ok for you over there. After all that sun and sand I'm sure you'll be more than ready for the river. What gear are you looking for? New board? Vest? Handle?

Craig @ SOS always has some deals.....hit the link below, he's got some 2007 leftovers.

Johan, I have a Natural 139 I want to sell, awesome board just a little too small for me so I bought a 144. I have a set of XL Zeuses that I could throw in as well. I'll make you a killer deal on the set if it works for you. Let me know

Ahhh college. I remember choosing classes so I too would have my Fridays free. Those were good days.

Johan: Dave's right. I was at Craig's a week and a half ago, he's jam packed with inventory and he's always
ready to make a deal to move some gear off the floor and out the door. But you know what? Remember how
lucky you were at the Push Process Premiere raffle? Before you go out and buy anything you may want to
wait and try your luck at Wakefest's raffle! Right Jim?

Speaking of the Wakefest raffle, just today FedEx dropped-off a really cool raffle item from Sidewayz.
I'm actually hoping it goes-out to some one in our core crew here.

Johan, that was me on the mic. I've done that rail jam for 3 years and this year was by far the best show! The rails were all dialed in and the guys totally stepped up.

Joe, I, too, don't have class on Friday. And while I do have students to account for, I will make arrangements to get them looked after. I'd like to join you for some morning pulls if you're still gonna hit it.

I'm finally not sore from last week's riding down in Brick. Time to get worn out again!

JB

Joe that X2 must have a little ballast in it the wake looks pretty meaty.
Old    Joey F (jflo453)      Join Date: Apr 2008       04-17-2008, 8:26 PM Reply   
Water today was 58, but with how much sun there has been it should be getting up there pretty soon. I am starting to get a little toasty in my 4/3, looks to be time to bump it down to a 3/2 or maybe even a shorty.

Ewing- those shots were from my second set this year and I have been pretty slow getting back into my groove, so I have only been running stock ballast which is about 800 lbs. I usually ride with about 2000 lbs total in the boat, just havent filled all the bags yet because theres no sense filling all those sacs and wasting all that gas unless I can put the wake to good use.
Old    Ewing (johnsvt)      Join Date: Dec 2006       04-17-2008, 8:34 PM Reply   
63 around here but I suspect the water will be 65-66 by the weekend, we are on a small manmade lake and the sun we are getting helps a ton.

Which X2 do you have?

Riding was great today here is a couple of pictures of Dave and Joe. Joe thanks for the pull. Great boat and fun riding with you. I don't think we could of gotten better start to the season. I made sure I got the power plant in at least one shot, right next to where we got boarded.

Jim, water was glassy all day. A bit brisk when you first jump in, but nothing a 2/3 wetsuit can't handle.

Joe, nice to finally meet you and big thanks for the pulls. The wake on the X-2 was great!
(Joe is a great rider too) :-)

I'll be out again tomorrow at 10am from Bordentown. Should be another nice day.

I am fine, they released my from the hospital after a few hours yesterday and just warned me to stay off the water for a while. I have had a pretty bad headache all day but other than that I feel fine. I will probably be back on the water this Thursday as long as my head feels good. Probably should have recognized it as an off day and called it quits after the first set. The official diagnosis is a severe concussion which caused moderate swelling in my brian. The swelling began to restrict blood flow to the brain and as this happened, I began to feel drunk or high as a result of the oxygen deprivation and ultimately it made me black out completely.
If anyone is down for some ballast free sets this Thursday I am probably gonna go out on a short rope and just dial in all my spins at a lower speed. Send me an email if anyone wants to come

Chris,"I'll be off every Tuesday and Wednesday this summer" hmmm.. I have a couple Tuesdays and Wednesdays off each month and usually have trouble finding a third. We'll have to get together this summer for some awesome mid week riding conditions on the river.

Joe, sorry to hear about your head. Get well and be carefull if your gonna hit the water that soon.

I have been down here at work on overtime all weekend looking at the pics of everyone riding and I'm getting the itch bad. See you all soon.

Nice to meet you by the way, I'm Doreen, Alex's better half.

I think the Slingshots are flexie; somewhere between a regular board and a Roam. Personally, I wouldn't spring
for a Slingshot until I tried one. On the other hand, I like seeing people on Gator Boards. I bought Doreen
a Mary Jane!

As Doreen intimated, we're planning to hit the river this Saturday. The weather forecast is favorable, the
boat will be full, the wake will be big and the tunes will be loud. Ah yes...let the season begin.

Yeah Jim....I get on the board and find myself looking around in a nervous fashion!
I'm only a beginner (for the rest of my life) so I can't even tell you guys how a Gator board feels. All I know is it pulls me! Sad, I know!

However, the grahics on the new Randall board are amazing. I thought I read somewhere, or maybe Dorothee told me, he used his tatoo artist for the designs. So cool!

Johan, you're so lucky with raffles, you should wait for Wakefest and see what you win! I know from a really close source , there will be a very cool item that will be raffled this year!

I need a wakefest count down!

Do any of you guys have a wakesurfer that I could borrow for the next week or two? I ended up having another "episode" monday night and passed out while showering in my dorm. My friends found me on the bathroom floor and I have been in the hospital since then, although I expect to be discharged today. Because of this though, I definitely am not going to be riding for at least a week probably more, so I think I am going to just stick to wakesurfing so that I can at least get out on the water.

We have a wakesurfer. Joe, what exactly happened? You had a bad fall on the water correct? Although I don't know you other then posting here, I'll be candid now....don't you think you should take it easy??? Sounds like you need to rest a bit. (Sorry, motherly instinct taking over).
We may be out on the water Friday (Alex doesn't know it yet!). Saturday forecast doesn't look so good does it?
I am watching them do the boat now as I lay in the sun with my laptop and tall glass of iced tea. Ahhh, vacation days are great!

What are the doctors saying, just to take it easy for a while? Did they do a CAT scan?

Just get better and don't push it, you have all summer. I'm taking a break this weekend, should be back out next friday or saturday.

Joe, I would take it very easy for a few weeks.Even a light fall off a wakesurfer could do more damage. You are talking about your brain. Don't take any chances. Like Dave said, you have a long summer ahead. Take a couple weeks off and let your brain heal.

Doreen, I always see your posts. I've been on my week off this week and started to clean my boat up today. I'm gonna spend the next 2 days on her them head down to work from Friday night till Tuesday morning. I'll see you soon.

Doreen: Of course I see your posts my little Guppy; and I always read them more than once! So we're going out
Friday and Saturday now? Sounds good to me!

Joe: I concur with everyone else. There's no hurry to get back in the water. You totally don't want to
jack-up your noggin any more than you already have. Take some time off, go back for a follow-up doctor visit,
and make sure everything is back in place and in proper working order before you get back on a board.

And Doreen...are you going to have wings and piņa coladas waiting for me when I get down there Thursday
night?

Alex, anything for you!

Jim, it's always good seeing you. Let's hope it's sooner then Wakefest!

Yes! Stickers are in order. We need Wakefest stickers too don't we?

Chris,Thanks a million for all your hard work yesterday. My boat looks great. Those products you used worked great and were easy to use. I'll be placing my order at www.glimmerglassdetailing.com soon. By the way, your web site looks good.

I'm inching my way closer to the official start of my season.

The cruiser looks good Jim. Nice work Chris.

Sadly, the plans to get out on the river this weekend didn't come together. But the boat's ready to
go and we're just waiting for a nice weekend.

Hello everyone-
Just checking in and saying hi, so Hi. I finally got out on a boat this weekend which was nice. It was just a bayliner, but beggers can't be choosers right? So the people were cool and I met two people from london, one person from france, another american and two australians.

We wakeboarding right outside Amber Wings house, so that was sort of funny too. Anyway, Hi.

I can't get pictures to shrink for some reason so there are three pictures on the blog.

Doug

Jim and Chris...........nice job on the boat, great shine!

Doug, nice to hear from you again. That's cool you met some people and rode by Amber's house. I bet she's there alot in the winter months.

hi doug,

glad your having fun down under. i did a semester in coogee beach and wakeborded in a lot of those same places. it's such a sick place to be, i hope your really enjoying yourself. you should check out the university of sydney wakeboard club. it's a bit far from sydney but the crew is very nice, they have a malibu for the team, and everybody camps out over the weekend and rides. i met amber through the club and even got a chance to ride with her at her house. that cove is the breading ground for many of the aussi riders, including dean smith. you shoudl check out her parents shop also, wing wetsuits.

other than that, i hope your enjoying the surf down there. i surfed maroubra (they just came otu with the "Bra Boys" movie which is about the beach and gang there) also bondi is fun along with the northern beaches (manly, etc.)

have fun living the good life, cause that's exactly what it is down under.

port douglass...i think that's the name of the cove...i'm having trouble remembering

ps. the sydney club is not just for university students and the river they ride on is unreal! long, winding, with 150 ft high cliffs on both sides.

Hey Alex, one of the guys in my fraternity here at school is the son of Brian Obyrne. Brian Obyrne is the founder the company that produces the energy drink Hydrive. It is pretty new, but you probably may have seen it in WaWa's and other Deli's in our area. He is always setting up booths and giving away free drinks at events here at Villanova, and said they were looking for more events to begin getting involved with. I told him about NJ Wakefest and said it is probably a good opportunity to come set up a booth and get the name of their product out there. If you guys are need of any more sponsors or free stuff, I definately think he would be interested so let me know and we could probably set something up.

"Dougie Fresh" checking in! Nice to hear you got out boarding, regardless of the boat. sorry, I missed our Sat night/sun morn call. I'll drop you a silly VM on your compuder! LOL

Gave the boat a much needed polishing this weekend...sunday though was a wash. Looking forward to the season!

Pretty good, headache has been in and out but definately subsiding over the last few days. I will probably be back on the water late this week and just easing myself back into it. Definately no ballast or handle pass tricks for a while.
