Some of you may not have heard of Adam Wensink yet, but you will. He just went from a sales rep (riding hard and competing all the while) to Team Member. Congrats Adam!
Adam rides out of Grand Rapids, Ohio, near Toledo on the Maumee River. I have had the pleasure of meeting him a few times on the river at at boat shows. Not only does this guy kill it, but he is an awesome all around guy. On and off the water.
Check out this blog from Nautique and keep an eye out for him. We will be seeing a lot more out of Adam in 09.

Eric - I noticed you have posted Lake James in Indiana in your profile, my buddy has a cottage there. I have brought my boat up a couple of times hoping to ride, but it is always so chop! Too many boats and not enough lake...... the sand bar on the other hand is a blast. the 4th of July party scene there is awesome. You live on Lake James?

Erik and Nate,

I live in Northern Indiana around Ft. Wayne and am always looking for some new guys to ride with. If you're ever in the area, let me know. There are a couple reservoirs in my area that are usually pretty good, even on the weekends as long as you are off the water by noon or so.

Adam RIPS, huge amount of talent on the old wakeboard. Great to see him riding and getting press!

Zach,

Yeah, Jeigh actually sent me his number earlier this year to ride, but we never made it happen. I think one of the guys I usually ride with may be moving to FL, so I definitely want to ride with some different people this coming year.

We usually start in April or May (as soon as it's warm enough with wetsuits), so let me know when you guys get out there. Yes, I do snowboard, but don't find a whole lot of time to go. Usually just hit up Bittersweet in MI for a day or something like that.

Yeah thats awesome to hear about Adam. I know he's been bustin his A$$ for the last oh 9 years to get to this point. Wish i wouldnt sell myself short all the time so I wouldnt be a has-been. Oh well, snowboard trip to Michigan end of JAnuary Lear? Get Klein, Krupp and Adam and I'll get together a few of my boys from down here and we'll go shred the slopes for a weekend!

Congrats!! To get a boat from any boat company in this economic climate is a huge deal. Must be well deserved.

Has been Mike? Shoot, you borrow my board then stomp a heel 7 and toe 9 within two weeks with it, I dont think your quite a has been yet! (Or maybe it was the GB.)

Anyways, that is great news about Adam! This is getting me stoked for spring to get here to see him throw down. Guess i willl have to live with the tweeked backside 5's on the slopes.

Snowbaord trip, you know I'm down... well as soon as I get this cast off my arm.
