Lance Connor sup'ed in. :-) Doesn't that just beg for buzzing him with a sack'ed out surf wake?

Sean Cummings brought his boat from California and made friends with the local police...they talked and talked and talked and it seems they were always visting. :-)

Pictures of the venue:

I hope you die in a firey crash! Oh yeah? I hope you get stung by a jellyfish! Sharing the love, that is wakesurfing.

That is the best looking Tige I have ever seen Couldn't tell by that picture that the local police was trying to give me a trespassing ticket for my boat being there.

It was a fun weekend hangin with the Wake9.com Crew.

Can't wait for next year.

Let's see, what did I call this thread? oh yeah: picture thread :-)

I'm sure that the NWWSA site will have results posted on their site soon, if they aren't there already.

I do know the results of the masters, however.

Masters

First Place: Scott Culp (stupid shuv anyway)
Second Place: JEFF WALKER (huh, what's up with the font? :-) )
Third Place: Judy Walker (end of the '08 legacy!)

LOL - in the Master's division Scott and I have been on the staging boat a few times together through the year. Scott is just killing it with 3's and now this shuv. I think back at Nationals I started the tradition of being "honest". So while all the contestants were feigning that tride and true "have a great run" I told Scott "I hope you don't land that shuv!" :-)

Such was not the case in Washington, true to his talent and ability, he nailed the shuv, 3's and demonstrated his general skills.

Hey Garcia family-

Thanks for making the trek to Seattle. Your enthusiasm and contributions to the sport makes it more fun for all of us!

Thanks Mark, it was definitely a pleasure meeting you. I had met Lance and Jeff before, but not you. RJ had a great time with you on that short little ride and getting to try out your board. He def can't ride it backside like you do! You must be the backside master.

On another note, I am uploading the masters videos, and should be done tonight. You can keep checking here:

Or you can follow on twitter, which will tweet as each video gets uploaded.

I think Jeff is asking for a split in the Master's division; One for surf and one for skim. Or is that one for normal and the other for cranky and irritable?
Old    Jeff Walker (surfdad)      Join Date: Sep 2004       09-01-2009, 6:19 PM Reply   
Irritable bowel? I want the divisions split so minute that I am GURANTEED first! And the crowd goes wild, as Jeff Walker wins the surf, short, pudgy, men's, balding, velcro fastener shoes, masters division!!!!!! :-)

Could the solution to this dilemma be as simple as a bowl of oat meal?

More fiber in my diet? Wow! That gives a whole new meaning to the trick by the name of "floater". Are we pushing the limits of decency here? :-)

Well I think you can get a high composition score if you pull off a fire hydrant too!

chidofu? Is that you in the picture? You know I was just being sarcastic, right? That whole area is so gorgeous! Is there a law up there that all the houses must be a minimum of 10,000 square feet?! :-)

Do all of those east facing windows give you a view of Mt. Ranier? It was HUGE when we flew in, but we couldn't see it from the lake that day, I'm guessing due to the haze/clouds?

Yep. That's me. I think you surfed back right after that refill.

At 10,000 square feet, you would be describing my neighbors house.

No views of Mt. Rainier from my house but if you go north and/or east on the lake the views are awesome. I have lovely views of I-90 though.
