We had Bre on the boat today taking some pictures so Judy took some pictures from further up in the boat, the perspective of height is interesting, especially when you compare it to those taken from water level looking up.

Bre Horton took these two photos. Dennis was commenting on how far over the flats James' aerials were taking him. The shadow on the wake is interesting.

When first learning to do a cheater 5, extend your leading foot, scream at the top of your lungs and have a great time. :-) Judy's new board is short enough that she can learn some new tricks. :-)

Hey Heidi,

I wanted to thank you for the hospitality you showed all of us at the TWC. I sent out a search party for you before we left for the evening but Todd kept saying don't let her talk to that Walker clan! He was quite frenzied. :-)

It's truly a pleasure to consider you one of our friends...not Todd, but you most certainly. :-)

HAHAHA...well I am glad you ignore most of what comes out of Todd's mouth!!!

It was such a treat to talk with you and the Gordan clan! GREAT CREW!!! I would ride with you ANYTIME...hopefully you will take me!

And thank you for tolerating the ribbing that I instigated from James when I conducted the impromptu interview. HAHA

You represent the baldING division well!

The Gordon's are nice people, aren't they?

Oh my, yes James was funny! He'll be off restriction in about 7 more years. :-) All in good fun and trust me he could have revealed MUCH worse! :-)

However, I am confused about the baldING reference dear, whatever do you mean?

NICE. And I though Loc was a nice guy when I talked with him on the phone! Goes to show what I know!!!. . . . .. lol.

Loc, that boy does have some hair, doesn't he? However, it's not good for you to miss your med's like that. If you look on your prescription of Prozac, it will say daily. Oh! It just struck me. Loc, daily means each day...you know, when the sun comes up in the morning, that's a new "day" take one of those pills, then. :-)

You're running around the interweb photoshopping hair and hats on your pictures, I think we are to be eating from the same pill box!}

Don't believe him for a minute wakeschick, he's just jealous of my style. Hat's make the surfer, everyone knows that. His insecurity drives him to make up these remarks.

More stylin' from the KING of surf style. You know, I need to start that biz. Stylin' surf hats.

Not an aerial but for me a mid-level perspective.

Fins and traction arrived - Thank you sir. Someone will enjoy for certain.

Re-count! I see 5!

I'm glad that fed-ex made it! You are welcome, Ed.

Petr, I'm glad that you are well - we've missed you about...however, I'm not sure what this continued baldness discussion is about. You need to review this thread:

Once you find one there's no point looking any further to refute baldness claims.

Actually Ed, we have two issues outstanding. One is I am bald - which is, well...a bald-faced lie. The other, I must take responsonsibility for, and that is this accusation of baldING. The interpretation is: "being in the act of becoming bald" and that simply isn't true, as shown by the pictures taken today, there is simply no evidence to support the conclusion of baldING. I am a little disappointed in you Ed, that you would go out of your way to photoshop that picture of me from Wakefest. Where is the original?

AND I will not give your "mid level" statement the time-of-day! :-)

Jeff what fins are with the board with the c5's, your boy really gets sum big air , i had fun trying to do 3's over the weekend on my 4.0 board. I noticed that short boards like flat fins and longer boards like the canted ones.

Thanks Mark, yeah James is really boosting of late. It's interesting the changes in how a board rides with different fins. I know that Vince P just got a set of Black Stix for his Wakeoutlaws TWP and commented that it improved the ride substantially.

In those pictures the fins are a natural composite, so it would be either the Future's Scimitar or VF 452 3/2/1. The fins are basically the same shape, the only difference is that the Scimitar has an 18 degree angle at the tip, where as the 3/2/1 has an 11 degree angle. From the base, the fins are 6 degrees, then 9 degrees.

I also have a set of the VF 452 in a clear hex - a little lighter, and maybe a touch stiffer. Different fins for different wakes. :-)

We also are working closely with Rich Sanders of Halycon Custom fins. That guy has such a long history in the surf industry, literally one of the who's who in Northern California...anyway, he's foiling some custom fins for us.

Pic's of some of his custom fins:

Hey Mark, correct me if I am wrong, but I remember you were thinking of molding some fins, or are you planning to foil from laminated 'glass?
