Just wanted to say HUGE thank you to Stefani and Jason for hooking us up with a place to stay and the warmest welcome. You guys are the best. If you ever want to come to SD, you have a place to stay, but I can't promise you conditions like we had today.

To all of you guys who came out yesterday to ride and hang out and meet us...we had a blast. You guys sure know how to treat visitors. There is nothing like a jello shot at 7:30 in the morning to kick of the weekend.

Stef and Jason, you have an awesome boat. Jason, I want you to know that the TS W2W competition is still in full effect, so keep me posted on when you nail it.

For those in the SD crew that are curious...the Blabel curse was in full effect on Saturday. Stefani, Jason and I had great water on all of our runs and as soon as Brian strapped on his board out came the armada of boats. It was great.

Saturday night was great. Awesome food, more jello shots and tons of people. Again thanks to everyone who came over to the Stef and Jason's for the BBQ. It was great to put names with faces. You guys have an awesome group to ride with.

Wes, thanks for the pulls this morning. The Blabel curse left early and allowed Brian a great run on butter before we left. Peter, Susie, Rod, Wes, Jason and Stefani we couldn't have asked for a better send may be a while before we see water like that again.

So thanks again for an amazing weekend. We will definitely be back VERY SOON

Thanks to all for making it a great time. We will be back for sure. Assuming we're invited back of course!

We had an incredible time. The Blabel curse followed me but I'm used to that. However as Melissa said, today was unreal. Nice long set on perfect water.

It was great meeting you all and I want to send a big thanks to Stephani and Jason for their hospitality.

Thanks to Wes today for the pulls. I'm glad to see that you made some progress on your roll.

Glad you guys made it home okay. We were thinking about you at 5:00 while we were still riding butter...

You guys are great, and Jason and I really enjoyed your company. You are welcome to stay with us ANYTIME!!! Sorry the blabel curse caught up with you Brian (yesterday), but glad today was a different story:-) Really wish you guys lived closer because we truly enjoyed your company and look forward to your next visit... (or our next visit to SD)

Thanks to everyone here at home that came out to share in the fun this weekend! You guys are the best... Couldn't ask for a better group of friends!!!

Video and pics to follow shortly!

Thanks for taking care of my kids for me!

Looks like I missed out, I will do my best to make it next time.

Well while you guys were out playing on the Delta I was meeting a few of your locals who were down for the weekend. John and Elisa it was good to meet and hang with you today.

So when are we going to do it again? Here are just a couple of quick pics for your enjoyment. Next time I see you ride I am sure you will be grabbing both the backroll and the tantrum.

The grab is right there!

Crappy water

Muchas gracias por las estiras y el paseo despues de la wakeboarding. Diga a Bill el misimo. Su barco es agradable. Como se dice "kickass weekend" en espanol? Bueno suerte in Mexico.

John and Elisa

Melissa & Brian - It was great to see you guys again and I'm glad you had a great time. You are welcome back anytime.

Had a great time too guys. It is always fun to have excuses to get the group together for an awesome weekend. Glad you got a taste of the delta. I think it tastes kind of gritty myself. huh Or is that a texture?

Thanks Ja and Stef for the BBQ and thanks for the Jello Tammy. Did we ever find the Malibu ones or did Shaun (sp?) have to go through all the green apple tequila ones?

Everyone else pretty much said it, but I'll say it again anyway. It was great meeting Brian & Melissa. Ja and Stef you are the hostess' with the mostest. Rod - put up with me two days in a time I'm just going to take that surf set. It was so good seeing everyone and finally meeting Alejandro!!

What a weekend!
Great to finally meet Brian and Melissa. You guys were great to have over. Our pleasure.
Melissa, you better bring it! I had a little boot camp session after you guys left Sunday, courtesy of Sgt. Pesos and Sgt. Hoosier (thank you sirs). Both Rod and Wes really helped me out. After cleaning up my sloppy form, I was getting close to ww ts. Should get it this weekend....better. As for Mr. Regresser (so he says he is), you were kickin some azz with your ts 5's, front/back rolls, tantrums, ts blind 3's, and everything else. Good job Brian, smooth.
As for the bbq party, thanks to everyone for showing up! It was fun. Too many left overs though, including a ice chest of JELLO's. Those were great, thanks Tammy. Green ones were a little intersting, though they were Shaun's favorite! Keep making lot's of the Malibu ones.
Congrats on baby Alex, Trace & Jen, he looks so happy. Of course I was too after the Repasado shots. Good stuff.
Brian and Melissa, hopefully soon we can make a Mexico trip soon with you all!
Thanks again for everyone showing up this weekend!

No problem Susie.... You are great to have on the boat anytime. I wish you would have taken that set too. Wes and Stef loved it. They were both getting their groove on. I like the landlock. Great board.

Thanks for coming out with us Wes. Like I told you, I rode with you twice and hit new moves each time. Thanks for the good input. I wish your ankle was better do you could have rode with us (besides surfing). Hopefully you can make the trip to Disco soon and ride with us.

Jason... You are real close to blowing it up. You have switch riding going real well, one wake 180's all around, ole 180's, butter/ lip slides, you were even riding with the handle behind you back in the blind position. I was getting killed trying that and it was not my first time trying either. Wes got your body position working now and your hand position is getting right where it needs to be. As soon as you keep that edge in, I will call it right now. You will be throwing w2w 180's in two directions within a few sets of going w2w. Going to be a great month coming up.

Oh... don't call me sir, I work for a living

I wish I could have seen Brian ride....

Thanks for a great day Saturday. Jason and Stefani you have a beautiful home. Thanks so much for the barbecue. Melissa and Brian it was nice meeting you, hope you had a good drive home. It was great hanging with you all, John and I had a really good time.
Old    wakelvr            08-25-2003, 1:13 PM Reply   
Rod, Wes... Thanks for the pulls on Sunday and thanks for all the wakeboarding tips. Also, Brian thank you for all the tips... If Jason and I work really hard at it, do you think we could look as good as you guys out there??

Rod, by the way, you were nailing it too yesterday. It really was a great weekend for all and it was so much fun watching some of you try new stuff. Can't wait to watch the footage of it all:-)

Again, thank you EVERYONE! Especially to those who made the trip all the way to the HouseofPayne for the BBQ. What a great weekend. Gregg, thanks for lending us the Trampolene!!! Susie, Sean, thanks for helping me get it together at the last minute.... Tammy, the shots... and everyone else who showed and contributed to the cause... you guys rock!

Blabel/Melissa, we really did enjoy your visit. Please come up again soon. And drag that Gramps and Laura with you, k? Let's do it again soon. When is the next official BLABEL DAY anyway?

I am ready! However, 8.5 hours of driving, or should I say riding in a car (with food stops) makes flying seem like a better way to go. I am glad that everyone else had a good time this weekend.

Here are a few more pics from the weekend. I didn't take many, mainly because my camera sucks and also because I wanted to sit back and watch.

Here is a smooth grab from Peter:

Wes still smiling after some brutal back roll attempts:

and finally the besides the SANTE rollers, the legendary Delta butter holds true in the background;

80's rules!!!

Of course Brian is nowhere to be found with shots of tequila floating around...........he is still recovering from the beating he took from me when he challenged the "old man" to a little drinking contest.

I'm just glad Brian didn't break out the "light hat"

Nice "Chuck Taylors"!!!!!!! Best shoes ever made.......

Chicken..............yummy............what is in the tupperware dish on the table, it looks good!!!!

It was great meeting you Brian and Melissa. I hope you guys had fun. Stef and Ja, thanks for the partay, as always it was excellent. It was fun to see all the boats and people that came out for the day on Saturday. Of course Sunday was all about texturing my ceiling. Look forward to seeing you guys up here again. Bring more people with you next time...

That would be a yummy 5 layer dip. Not pictured are the 8 delicious tri tips, scrumptious brownies made by SusieQ, Arun and Anne Michelle's secret choco chip cookies, Tammy's famous jello shots, Mimi's mind boggling tasty spinach dip, Mama Lucia's famous BBQ BACON BEANS, amongst other very yummy, yummy dishes. Oh, well, Gramps, maybe next time.

Nothing like the boys running a few hot laps on the PS2.... They had to dress comfy. I told everyone to make themselves at home, but, I think Mike was just a little too comfy and homey feeling.

That's great Stefani. We'll be out of town in Tucson rooting on UCLA the weekend before that but will be around the weekend after. Looking forward to getting a chance to meet you guys finally. Plus, as you probably know a couple of the Colorado guys will be around as well. Should be lots of fun.
