I'm sorta on the other end of the chain on Island lake usually ride there or loon. Lmk when you up we can hook up and ride, I'm up just about every weekend.

Chad thanks for letting me ride the Inland Surfer last night, that thing is sooooo fun!! Def a huge change from skim board, can't wait to give it a ride again.

I F'ed up this weekend. I poked my eye with somthing I couldnt see in the dark. Doc said I will be ok but I am done with wakeboarding for at least a week. Maybe more. I havent ridden for 2 weeks as it is so I am getting really antsy. Now and the ballast system is finally done I guess I have to get the other projects done on the boat this week now so it will be 100% when I go next. With any luck I will be too. My vision is still blurry out of that yey though. Kinda scary.

Sorry to hear about that Don. This week off will be a good chance to hit the gym or the road and try to stay in shape for riding.



On a positive note - I "shared the stoke" this weekend with my 21 year old nephew. Took him out for his first time wakeboarding. He started snowboarding this year (after 3 years overseas in the military) and to my surprise - he popped up on his first try and shredded for a long set. He was getting started with edging and having fun behind the boat - and being a young ego infested guy tried a few wake jumps and even tried a 180 bunny hop.

Gotta love sharing the stoke. He's gonna pick up his own board this week and start riding with us regularly. Here's a couple pics.

I was a proud uncle!

I have been passing it on with my wife's cousin who is 17. I have been getting him out a little last year but is definately getting more dedicatred and pushing to go this year a lot more. Hopefully we can get on his own board this year instead of mine all the time.

MN Crew,

I mentioned this a while ago, but I have a new website that is in development: WakesurfPlanet.com. It'll be published soon, but there is a lot of info to put up yet.

However, I would like some feedback as it's being developed. Here's a link to get to the site:

http://www.wakesurfplanet.com/index.shtml

Let me know what you think. What do you like and what don't you like? What kind of information would you like to see? Be honest, I can take it. Post feedback here or you can post feedback on the Wakesurf Planet forum as well.

anyone have an old board they want to sell me for a boat board? I broke my old murray and belmont.

I want something 138 or bigger and would prefer an open toe binding that goes up to at LEAST 11..

shoot me an e mail if you do - jeffwadholm@yahoo.com and let me know what it is, general condition and price. Cheaper the better.

I just got back from a great day of riding. Everything fell into place today, the boat ran great (finally), the ballast system worked like it was supposed to after the 3rd revamp (finally) and I (finally) got to use my bimini top I got a few months back. The wake was great, we surfed a little and pissed off some opener fishermen. Trailer pulled nicely, and had some good buds out with me, weather was awesome.

Just a bad a$$ day today.

Thanks Seth, Will, Jeff and Bryce for help with the lift today... Went in SMOOTH..

Thanks for the pull on Saturday Jason. The boat is so sick man - I like it more every time I'm in it.


Great weekend on the water today. I have an EPIC sunburn after today, an empty gas tank and a great time..

See you guys this week.

Had a great time today Jeff, awesome group of people to be on the water with.

It was also good to put a couple more faces to names from wakeworld.

I'm right at 4.5 hours on the new engine.... one more night cruise and it will be ready for a oil change.. and more importantly ready to ride behind!!

The pics from early season are already lookin awesome. And Ryan, that Go Pro video was ridiculous man! loved the angles in there. Took this pic from last night, with my cell phone. SUCH a nice night to ride, summer is definitely here. No wakeboard pics tho, haven't brought the T1i out onto the boat yet.

I took a fairly epic edge on Sunday. Jeff, Jason and Will were able to witness the hilarity. I'll be down by 5:45 at the latest. I'll try to hurry down. Is your cousin coming or just the two of us? Gonna be hard to take pics and pull if it's just us! I'll throw those vids/pics onto a CD tonight if I can remember it and bring them for ya. I tried uploading one to facebook but it was going to take a month to load.

Hey Jeff and all- who's around for the weekend? I am trying to get some riding in every day from now until Monday. anyone taking friday off? I can ride during the day if so. We rode last night on Riley until 9 and it was awesome- water temp is up 10 degrees from Sunday and it was butter

We may try Medicine one of the days and will play it by ear based on whatever one is doing the other day. As Bryce said - we're riding Marion tonight. Hope to get a BUNCH of riding in.

Sick night last night. We rode Marion. It was blown out on the main part of the lake so we just rode the launch bay... Bryce and I EACH got 4 sets in!!!!!!! Solid effort. My body is hurtin today after riding 4 sets last night and Crossfit this morning..


Side note: I found this band from Minneapolis this week. Their newest CD is available for free download on their website. I have no affiliation with them, hadn't even heard of them til this week but it's decent light alternative music that will be good for the boat.

Just wanted to share the stoke with minnesota people, I got my nephew up on my board with me on the second try. Had the driver pull us up slow... too slow on the first attempt and couldnt hold it. A little faster on second try and it worked great. The pic is when we first got up... the board rides deep in the water when first getting on plane!!

Hey Jay -

What was the name of the company you took your boat to get the interior re-skinned? Did you have them put in new carpets too?

I believe they are in Burnsville, but let me know.

Thanks man, hope all is well.

Old    Jay (ironj32)      Join Date: Jan 2007       06-03-2010, 8:27 AM Reply   
Erik is correct, C&E Auto Upholstery in Savage. They do great work, and get the vinyl directly from Mastercraft so it's a perfect match. I didn't have them do the carpet, but I've considered it...I'd love to do a snap in carpet, but I think it would be spendy! What are you thinking of getting done, and when? I've been thinking about doing a few seats, and my sundeck...we could probably get a discount since we have the same boat....but, we'd have to do the same color I'm sure.

Thanks guys. Jay - I'm not sure on the when's and the what's quite yet. I will probably shoot them a phone call to get the ball rolling. I'll let you know if I decide on something and see if you want to get in on the order on the cheap.

Hopefully we can ride this summer at some point.

I was at my dock doin some stuff to the boat/lift on marion, weather was nice enough to ride but bad enough to keep timmy the tuber off the water... one guy out wakeboarding and maybe one or two fishing boats on the whole lake... you coulda "owned" a nice section of water..

Can you believe it's been 7 weeks? It feels like we just started
this puzzle. Tear. Anywho, enough about us, the latest clue to
word # 3 (and the previous in case you missed them...)

Riddle me this # 7
Sometimes we use all of it on our cars kicks.

Riddle me this # 6?
We've moved on but you have the first 2 figured our by now right?
Regardless of how buff you are you wouldn't be caught dead without
it in battle.

Riddle me this # 5?
This game is getting pretty ridiculous. We'll make it a
little easier for you. It's an adjective, probably thought it
was a noun didn't you? When you get buff you get more of it.
See you next week.

Riddle me this # 4?
Still couldn't figure out last weeks? Here is another clue.
It's capabilities are endless. We rely on it everyday to man
up our machines.
