Ive been trying to land a heelside frontside 360 forever and this weekend it just clicked...I landed 8 of them! Thanks to "The Book" Now I need to get a backroll and a toeside backside 180 down.

the weekend was good! took my xstar to Lake Wissota in Chippewa Falls with 6 of my friends and camped out on an island. even though the lake was pretty busy most of the days, it was still a good time.

We had an epic set on Long Lake, pretty much the only boat on the water from 9 to noon!!! Made stealing the PWT X-Star totally worth the effort!

All right, I didn't steal it but thats the only way the day could have gone better.

I had a pretty good fourth... I had a rib injury a couple of weeks ago, so today was my first time back in the water since, it felt awesome! Glad you all had a good time too.

So...Who is in for some AM sessions this weekend? Saturday, Sunday..BOTH?! I know I am and a couple of my buddies boat or yours!

Daren and Erik, I got a hold of "The Book" so if you want to make copies call or email me...lets ride also!

Anthony, we were out on the 4th, we ended up staying till about 1:00. We ride out there about once a week, usually in the evenings. My buddy has a 2000 X-Star black and white, flag us down if you're out there.

Hi guys! Just got back into this site! Fourth weekend was great (besides the freakin chiggers and my uncle almost sinking his boat lol). Didn't get to rip it up till yesterday but had a good time :-)

Eder~ I know ben wants a copy so when your done with the book either give it back to me or just give it to him.

Whats up all...

Fourth was busy down here. Didn't ride though, too many idiots on the lake.

Dustin, I think I know who you are now, were you on Circle lake???Maybe not.

Corey, way to rub it in!

Bryant Lake is in Eden Prairie. I just got home from a great day on Bryant. We had 9 people on my boat so the wake was MINT! The bad news is that i messed my prop up in the south bay...MEGA sad... So I need you guys to tell me where I should bring it to have it refinished! HELP!

The fourth was was pretty much a work weekend at the cabin(rocked the shoreline);although,we did burn through over a tank of gas so I did get a fair amount of riding in.
I could do some AM riding Sat morning. the only thing is I would have to be home somewhat early, being I am having a party at my house with 75+ people that evening at 6:00.

Anthony-there is a place in Forest Lake called mikes prop who has always done my dads props as long as I can remember.I think they are right behind F/L Motorsports. Or if its not completeley destroyed find a good blade measure the disance from your rudder(good stationary point) to a few points on your prop,and beat them around so they all match the good one. It works well if you want to get your rig in the back in the water.(its what I do all the time)

Donkey Kong?...Daren, you're dating yourself. Hee, hee, just kidding.

The 4th was a R&R weekend for me. Just played golf. Suffered a mild concussion on the previous Tuesday. Not sure the ol' brain can take many more crashes.

I'll be ready to go next week though, in case anyone needs a third. I'll be at a kneeboard clinic in Wisconsin this weekend.

Hey Eder~ I'm still game for seshes this weekend whenever but I just got the bad news from benny. Apparently he has a project to do Sun morning and can't make a bass run, so he's out in the AM for both sat and sun. I'm still game though so let me know the plan man :-) !

Justin, I have been up on Circle quite a few times @ Dustin Morgan's place.

Anthony, I believe I spotted your Supra turning south off of cliff road yesterday.

Chad! I actually remember playing Pong when I was really little...very, very young. But yeah, it does date me. I'm off the grid until after the 18th, but then we're gonna get back on the water with a new handle! I had a shifter recall on my VTX that will be replaced sometime this weekend, so my boat should be ready for next week!

I ride behind a good friends 06 Supra 24SSV GG edition. I drive about 60 miles south to ride though. There are 3-6 that ride with us, we usually go out 2-3 times/week.

Thats the next trick that I need to stick Dustin! You drive that far to to ride when there are a TON of local boarders that would be willing to give you a pull!? That 24ft SSV must be AMAZING! You can ride with us anytime. Just bring a little gas money and a positive attitude!

So i had a little steering cable mishap last Sunday, which left me boatless until the part comes in. Don was a baller and invited me out for quick pull behind his rig today, what a guy (thanks again Don!!!). Anyhow, after we got our wakeboarding sets in, we began to surf. Our first surfing sets were as normal as could be, but we began to get creative with the second set we took, today was the most fun i have had out in the water in quite some time! We tried everything we could think of, sitting down, body surfing, laying down, one knee etc... hahaha, it was AWESOME! i was able to snap some pics with my blackberry, and you can see i have, literally, a mean butterfly stroke when i was body surfin it with the board and trying to get back into the sweet spot! Enjoy, and thanks again Don!

Me at my finest!


Don -- still working on getting yours resized!

Hey all, sounds like some fun riding gong on in MN, also a great vid Ryan. My name is Zach and I recently started a new job at Marine Max boats. We have an event in Hudson coming up and we are trying to get some wakeboarding going on for people to enjoy. I am looking for riders for Saturday the 26th of July (10 AM-2 PM, live band to follow) and can pay a small stipend in addition to free food and drinks, all for just having fun on the water. Also looking for riders for this Sunday on the St. Croix river near Hudson for a video shoot. If you land 3's or can do a handful of basic inverts and have a little style that is all we are looking for. If interested hit me up right away: 651-270-0603.

On a side note if any of you ride near the river, I am looking for people to ride with.

Jay, alot of the lakes down here are fine, most of the time. there are your exceptions. However the lakes dont' seem to get very crowded. Kind of a trade off. I'll try to snap a pic of the lake today.

Hey, Jay. I usually ride on Marion, but during he week it can be hit or miss w/ tubers, plus they have a stupida#* rule that requires you boat in a circle. Pretty obvious that whoever made the rule has no clue about boating safety or calm water preservation. I never follow-up but it has gotten me flipped off on more than one occasion. I'm usually on Marion in the mornings on wknds. Great water if you're on by 8 and off by 11:30. Look me up if you're moving down.

First post here.

Just started wakeboarding about three weeks ago. We hit Marion a couple times a week; usually on by 7 am on the weekends and a day during the week before work. it is crazy busy on the weekends so we are off by 10 or so, but if you get out early it is pretty good.

Seth, if you see a red ski nautique stop and say hi. Could use all the tips you've got on riding. I usually foot and recently got a wakeboard and am addicted. Trying to follow the steps in The Book and am progressing along. I've seen a few good riders out on Marion from time to time; like I said if you see us out stop flag us down.

Anthony...mainly Roberds. I have a lift and the time to trailer just usually isnt' worth it for me. Driving is not an issue though. Plus the lake is rarely crowded.

John...I have the pic at work. I will get it in the morning. What ever happened with the surfer???

I wish i was out riding! Anyone who rides up near Coon Rapids or any other northern suburb, if you ever need a third fourth or fifth let me know im in.

Also i have question to the owners of either the supra 20ssv or the malibu vtx. Im wondering what the overall lenght of boat is on the trailer and also how tall it is. Im trying to see if one of these will fit in my garage. Im pretty sure they will but just checking.

Hey, Chad! I've seen you out quite a bit last year. I'm the guy in the gray Supra 22SSV that you saw quite a bit near the end of the season last year. Thanks for sharing the water! I only wish L. Marion had a few more guys like you out there. Probably be out next weekend (Aug 2).

Dahmsy, I have a 20ft SSV and I have the trailer with the tongue that swings in. On the trailer with the swim deck and tongue swung in id say its around 22ft. My garage is 6ft5inches and I cant fit it in there but I LOVE MY BOAT! We load it down with 3000lbs of ballast and the wake it MINT! I have had ZERO problems.

Anthony, Thanks for the info. I had an older launch but i sold it, but now i cant wait to get another boat. Im thinking the 20 ssv and the vtx due to the size and the fact i can fit them in my garage. With your info i know i can fit the ssv for sure. Do you have a double or single axle trailer? Not sure if that will make a diff or not.

Super spectacular night, yesterday, on Owasso.

Erik was with us, as well as a few others. Eder was out there in his boat with Don and a couple others. They were sitting on the surfboard again:-D Daren was out behind another boat.

Daren, was that you trying to do a backroll on a slalom ski?

Chad, it was AWESOME yesterday...and the water...glorious! I Almost got the TS frontroll down, i slid out on my but, but i landed it! My buddy almost got backrolls down and he just began to try them yesterday, and i nailed a double up so sweetly that it even hurt when i landed, ugh! what an awesome day! I wasnt planning on boarding too much, Don was comin out to help me with an engine mishap, but we brought our boards, then more people came so we kept going at it..with that said, sorry for not calling you, but next week most likely ill be out at Owasso again, monday or tuesday, i'd love for you to join us!

Erik - - been SUPER busy but have not forgotten about you, i will get out those DVD's today or tomorrow..PROMISE!

Dahmsy, I have a double axle trailer. Most people with the 20ft SSV dont use a double axle but it tows really really nice with it! I think we are gonna sell ours in Sept because my best friend-co owner is going away for more Air Force training and will miss most of next summer. It would be sweet to sell it to someone local! Come out riding with us sometime and you can see if you like it.

Jay, I dont know how far south you are looking to go, but the townhouse owners next to me is looking to sell or rent. The only bad thing is that it is in Farmington.
