OOOPS! How did he get on the water without a helmet?! No, we are required to wear them for wakeboarding and wakeskating and there are usually loaner helmets on the dock. Bad Rob!

Can anyone do some editing to put a helmet on that kid's head?

Thanks for the video Mike. Kinda looks like Rob had a big rock in his right pocket.

Nope its mine. If you have a pic, post it. I would be EXTREMELY surprised to see a similar boat with a Boss Belmont Tower on it.

Mike, I got the tantrum down, but have yet to try a backroll. I have watched the higher learning a couple of times to try and understand the trick, but the vid does not tell me much. I need help on initializing the rotation, because the video doesn't really cover that part well.
Recently I have been cutting out with the intention of attempting it, but wuss out at the last second.

wow mike we really need to ride lol, ive got the backrolls down and i keep wussing out on trying the tantrum, ill bet we could help eachother a lot...but the best thing i can tell you is its just a cartwheel, stand tall at the wake kick your head to your shoulder and keep you handle in tight

Is there any riding going on in Southern Illinois, like Belleville/O'fallon area? Carlyle lake isn't too far, but when i was there i didn't see any riders. Anyone know if there's a scene around here at all?

Kaskaskia is where its at in the Belleville/O'fallon area. Extreme PowerSports is your local Board shop that sells Supra/Nautique, as well as Hyperlite, Liquid Force, etc... They are located about 30-45 minutes northeast in Greenville IL. Next would be Stateamind near the St. Louis Airport, then Dan's boats in O'Fallon Missouri and lastly DriPort in Lake St. Louis. Check these shops for the local scene. I would look first at Extreme, because they get alot of riders in your area.

I'm in the C'dale-Kinkaid area, and am a member at the site where the video was taken above. Let me know I'll give you a pull. Also Jefe's boat is sweet, we had a great day on the lake at Kinkaid a few weekends ago. Second that on getting ahold of Extreme, they are great people and can help you out.

My exhusband lives in Collinsville and has always ridden the Kaskaskia river a lot. He has a Supra Launch. You should look him up sometime, he's pretty nice...haha...
He used to ride the INT consistently, I honestly don't know if he's still involved. His name is Chris, his wife is Kim, they have a baby that's probably about a year old now...if this is sounding familiar to you INT people :-)
