Wake surfing magazine is not cool; in fact I think it sucks. This opinion has nothing to do with how much fun I think it is or what I think of the people who are into it.

Wake surfing contests and a wake surfing magazine are the things that will erode everything people have done to promote the legitimate vision of wakeboarding and wakeskating and the development over the last 10 years. The surf skate, & snow industries are just getting interested in wakeboarding and wakeskating and now we (wakeboarders) are saying this is the next cool thing. For someone who has grown up in board sports wake surfing is definitely not the next cool thing. Especially when you compare it to tow-in surfing. Hmmm,,, I wonder which one is going to get more respect. Centurion and Level X are pushing wake surfing out of the nest before it even has wings in an effort to try to own something. All I see is there trying to save own a$$e$, and in doing so are making the whole sport/industry/us look needy and stupid.

so you are saying you worry more about what other people think of you while riding then how much fun you are having?

gotta be 'cool' and have 'respect' from other board sports to feel good about yourself?

Just another closed mind that can't say something good about anything unless he does it. Going through life with blinders on. All of these different "Board" sports are not for everyone, but it doesn't mean that they suck or that they are wrong for another rider.

The time: the early 90’s

The place: AWSA meeting across the country

Listen to me people…we must stand and fight against the thing called WAKE BOARDING!!!!!!!!!!!

Wakeboarding contests and a wakeboarding magazine are the things that will erode everything people have done to promote the legitimate vision of Show and 3-event Water-Skiing and the development over the last 50 years. The Olympics are just getting interested in water-skiing and now we (water-skiers) are saying this is the next cool thing. For someone who has grown up water-skiing, wakeboarding is definitely not the next cool thing. Especially when you compare it to surfing. Hmmm,,, I wonder which one is going to get more respect. Correct Craft and Wakeboarding Magazine are pushing wakeboarding out of the nest before it even has wings in an effort to try to own something. All I see is their trying to save their own a$$e$, and in doing so are making the whole sport/industry/us look needy and stupid.

This sound too familiar…

Those bad people are trying to have fun, don’t they know that only us wake boarders are allowed to have fun!!!!!!!!

Corey you sound a little pathetic and paranoid! I thought wake boarders were above all this. I hope this isn’t how the majority of us think. People, who think this way, shouldn’t be allowed on the water. Corey, Go have some fun and stop worrying about how other define fun. Don’t be an idiot.

It is so typical for everyone on here to use the "close minded" fraise. Every time a thread gets posted that has a potentially sensitive issue people start freaking out and say your close minded because they disagree or don't like something. I don't agree with kiddie porn either, but does that make me close mineded Ronnie?

Did I ever say wake surfing sucks?, no. I enjoy wake surfing to take a break from other things behind the boat.

Did I ever name call anyone who likes to wake surf Blain?, no.

Because I like to wake surf that does give me the right to call out on a crappy mag like wake surfing. If any one here has looked at it and likes the whey it looks than by all means, and while your at it please invest in a tubing mag too. Or how about a tubing contest. Sure tubing is fun, but does it deserve a mag. Well that's right where wake surfing is.

As far as the name calling deal, half you people don't even use your real name on here any whey’s. So your narrow mined a$s master freak show holds no validity to me.

"Did I ever name call anyone who likes to wake surf Blain?"

"So your narrow mined a$s master freak show holds no validity to me."

that sounds like name calling to me. so to answer your question to Blain, it would be "yes, you called people names. and if our "narrow minded" ass master freak show holds no validity to you, then why are you getting so upset about what people have been saying?"

Not upset, just following a pattern everyone seems to be comfortable with. The slander sentence was to prove an obvious point.

Do you have any impute on the topic Scott or are you just the strand police?

i would have to agree with corey on a wakesurfing magazine being stupid. mostly for different reasons, but its just my opinion.

danedawg- do you sterotype a lot of different classes of people? i apologize if i took your comment the wrong way, but i get put down a lot because i'm younger than most of my co-workers, and it bugs the hell out of me.

Dan,

I think narrow-minded behavior often correlates to a less experienced mind.

However, I do NOT think a less experienced mind often correlates to narrow-minded behavior.
