I've really enjoyed this forum (lurking more than posting) since we bought our boat and got into wake boarding 2 years ago...

Besides being a darn good wakeboarder (w2w 180's, 360's, working on backroll's) my wife just won the Grand Championship for American Gladiators.. unfortunately they didn't show any of our wakeboarding highlights on TV... you can see more of our story at our site.

or at the NBC site

just thought I'd give a shout out to the wakeboarding community!!

I can't believe your wife won! That is awesome. I was watching it and thought it was over because the other girl had such an advantage going into the eliminator.

That is AWESOME!!!!! Congrats! I have been saying for the past 2 months that I want to try out. I just haven't found any details on the tryout yet.

Jeff - Congrats to you guys! Do you guys attend Watermark? I've been a member there since 2003 and some buddies mentioned that you guys went there as well. That's crazy that both winners are Dallasites!

That's a really neat story - congrats to you both!

MCXSTAR - I would love to know what the "Secret Spot" is?? are you near DFW?

Eubanks - yeah, we went through the premarital class at Watermark, and I've been going for about 3 years now
Old     (eubanks01)      Join Date: Jun 2001       08-07-2008, 10:16 AM Reply   
Sweet! Yeah, Kedersha had mentioned you guys were his proud couple that made it on American Gladiators!

My wife and I lead tables at the premarital classes and just got done with a premarital community group. We are going to lead a Foundations Group this fall so maybe you guys will be assigned to our group! haha

We should ride sometime. You need to check out Wakeboard Church at your lake. I usually ride at the Lavon chapter. It is a really cool group of Dallas folks riding and worshiping together.

My 5yr old son and I watched AG every Monday, congrats to your wife and you also for doing well on the show!, that's some hardcore stuff. I do remember seeing a quick clip on the show earlier in the season of you and your wife riding in your X1. I was like, "Wow, they must wakeboard!" lol
Old     (flamethewolf)      Join Date: Jan 2007       08-07-2008, 1:00 PM Reply   
If they get resigned for season 3, I'll give you guys some tips on the tryout process... it was really an amazing experience.. and who knows we might be upgrading the x1 to an xstar :-)

The Secret Spot is about an hour and a half south of Dallas. E-mail me for more info

MCXSTAR - Do you have a lot down there? I heard there were no campers or trailers to be left down there overnight anymore. Is that true?
Old     (romes)      Join Date: Sep 2006       08-07-2008, 2:48 PM Reply   
yea i want some pointers..i wanna try out for that SHEIT
Old     (romes)      Join Date: Sep 2006       08-07-2008, 2:50 PM Reply   
do they try and make those 2 guys in the finals as corny as they seemed or are they really like that?
Old     (flamethewolf)      Join Date: Jan 2007       08-07-2008, 5:05 PM Reply   
they were really nice guys... Tim is actually from Texas too and went to A&M... it's tough because your all amped up and nervous when you do the interviews because the whole experience is so surreal
Old     (snork)      Join Date: Jun 2007       08-08-2008, 8:46 AM Reply   
Eubanks- You are correct. There are no campers allowed unattended overnight. Still a great place to wakeboard as long as there is enough water in the river.

Hey Jeff did you buy that X-1 from Buxton? That looks like Cody Bears old boat. Congrats on the wife's win, that is pretty cool!
