Yeah it's a 17' 1992 Four Winns - Freedom. I could be wrong about the year. It's early 90s anyways. We had about 350 pounds of Ballast. The boat can't take a lot more than that. There are a couple shots in the video where it was behind an unweighted ski boat. Not much wake at all. I'm still trying to land an HS 7 off the double-up behind the Four Winns. That is my goal for next year... although I have my doubts. I'm committed to it though!

Dude! Okay not to go all off on a rant, but way to freaking go. Multiple inverts, big grab 3's, fives from both sides and even a couple different ollie flips in the flats (not sure what we're calling those these days). I liked the turtles glowing eyes heh.

Very very impressive, this is what wakeboarding is really about and I would so much rather watch you than anyone in some new rich boat.

I rode behind my small i/o for about 12 years, it was a 16.5' 1976 Glastron, we put about 3-4 lbs of water weight in it. I couldn't quite grab my 3's, and only landed a couple back rolls. I've since upgraded to an 87 Supra SunSport last summer. Still trying to dial the wake in but it's a big improvement and surfing rocks. More power to you dude.

What was your injury? This is Ontario?

NIce! You rip. Man I think I rode better back in the day behind a closed bow ski boat. More power to you bro.

Thanks guys. That means a lot coming from guys on this forum who actually know how to rip. My buddies give me props but they honestly don't know the difference between a tantrum and a whirlybird. So... thanks again!

WakeMikey, the injury was a buldging disc. It took about a year to recover from. And yes, I ride in Ontario. It's actually up in Peterbourgh on Buckhorn Lake.

Hahaha, the chipmunk was cool. I was trying to feed him peanuts right out of my hand. As you can see in the video, he came within a couple inches of me and the camera but he wouldn't take it right from my hand. The camera wasn't zoomed in at all, that's how close he actually got.

The tantrum to blind I haven't landed yet. Actually, that probably wasn't one of by better attempts. The tantrum to fakie I have landed, just not on film yet.
