Hide is getting pretty good with the lens! Hope to get some decent pictures as soon as the rust comes off and learn this new board and new wake of the Moomba Craz.

She's been really trying to get better at it, and her improvement is showing. Would like to get her our of the boat and shoot from different angles.

anybody been to utah lake this year? We tried to go last night on saratoga springs side at pelican bay. We hit our prop in the marina shortly after leaving the trailer. I know its low but didnt think it was that low.

That sucks to hear Tings!

I haven't been to Utah lake in a few years, but I'm surprised it's as low as you say it is considering most of the lakes have been filling up nicely from what I've seen.

How long until your prop is fixed?

Had another buddy trash his rudder and prop last week on UT Lake towards the airport. Surprised how many people that don't know how shallow it is over there. We go there to anchor when the lake is full and it's 3' of hard sand for miles. People surfing right by us without a worry in the world, LOL. Tracy has the correct website to check the depth, no way in hell I'm going there till the water comes up... Way up!

Forgot to update that we finally got a chance to get the Craz out and full ballast. Problem was the water and breeze didn't cooperate with our plans. Will be adding a little more weight to the rear and will be 1640 lbs rear and 1200 front for a total of 2800. This wake has a ton of promiss and can't wait to get it out on epic water to really test out the wake. As you can tell in the pic my timing was very off for the first set and hit of the season and left way too early. What better way to break in a new board and boat but with a Tantrum... We're going to fight the crowds for the first time in 13 years since the wife got out of retail. Decided to catch up all 13 years in 1 trip and head to Lake Powell and the real crowds of Memorial Day.

UM or MSU?

Ha I didn't go to either one. But I had more friends at msu. Unless that affects my ability to catch a pull...

Hey Ed,

Welcome to Utah! I normally don't ride on Saturday's because of the crowds, but tend to ride on Sunday early mornings. When are you normally able to ride? I ride up at Willard, so if you're willing to make the drive up, let me know.

That puts you in a better position. Buckeye here so if it was UM would be a tough sell.... I work crazy hours but try to get out every weekend unless I'm traveling for work.

Got the Craz out for Memorial Day Weekend on Lake Powell and took to the surfing side of it. Lot of fun in the sun and damn this boat exceeds all my expectations.

Here's a pic from one of our sessions from last weekend. Water was great and my body is wrecked from all the riding I did. Haha!

Nope, should see the new sacks sometime later this month. Going to be a mean machine that's for sure.

Xsmall Hyperlite Era bindings in exchange for a pull. I miss having a cable park in my town and I haven't been behind a boat in over a year. I'm having withdrawals. I'm usually available weekdays, weekends...whenever. Thanks, Greg Murray 801-510-2283

Hey Greg, I got no use for an extra pair of bindings, but if you're still willing to throw down gas money like before for pulls you're always welcome.

My boat finally got some canvas from http://www.re-viveupholstery.com/ and all I can say is WOW! Glen and family really know what they're doing and wouldn't take my toys anywhere else to get canvas. Been missing the platform cover since my last boat and finally pulled the trigger. Glen is also working on a spare tire cover that will allow water to drain out 100% and keep the air flowing to keep the mildew out while keeping the strength of a full canvas cover. Hope to have pictures of this cover shortly and rocking it full time. Take a second and check out his website and see the work he does. Nothing better supporting local and small and hands down the best workmanship in Utah. Interior, exterior, flooring, audio, etc. they do it all. They did a complete interior for a buddies 03 Wakesetter LSV and man it's a work of art.
I've officially been Re-Vived

Will do Greg! I just jacked up my ankle on Sunday, so I'll be out until it heals up. Thought I was going to be good to go yesterday, but woke up this morning and can barely walk on it.

Thanks Josh! As you know, the 210 wake is timeless and never gets old.

You get the new sacs for the Craz yet? I want to ride that girl!

Haven't heard anything yet but I guess I haven't checked. After getting your timing on the SANTE wake the Craz is going to feel CRAZY weird, LOL.

"After getting your timing on the SANTE wake the Craz is going to feel CRAZY weird, LOL."

Why is that? Is the wake more rounded so no kick at the top of the wake?

Your wake is straight up and this will have what seems like a forever transition to the top. It was really a joke... but it's night and day between the shapes as you know.

Gotcha! It'll probably be more like my Supra 22ssv wake, which I also loved so shouldn't be too weird or unfamiliar. You're bringing her up to the competition on Sat at EC right?

Hey Neil, sorry but I'm judging a wakeboard comp at East Canyon State Park this Sat. Hope you find a couple of people to ride. If not, you may want to come up to the comp and check it out. Starts at 9am.

I'm actually leaving for Lake Powell tomorrow for a week of fun in the sun. I did get the new bags yesterday... Great way to break them in is Lake Powell

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow, come on up to East Canyon State Park to watch the first wakeboard competition of the summer, along with watching Supra Boats / Jobe Wakeboards pro team rider, Taylor McCullough, do a demo session. There's even a wake surf demo.

Wakeboard competition starts at 9am and will conclude about 1pm. The Wake surf demo's are held in 2 different time slots. First is 10am, I believe, and the second one is in the early afternoon. The wakeboard comp is completely full, but there were still some surf spots still available. Cost is $40 a person to surf as many different boards provided and test out the latest Supra & Moomba boats.

My friend Stan Tanner in Wisconsin made me a DIY wake shaper for surfing and I finally got to tried it out for the first time last night. I'm pretty pumped with it since the older Nautique 210's are notoriously bad for surfing on the port side, and it was probably the cleanest 210 port side wake I've ever surfed on. Here's some pics. And dare I say the cost to put the unit together was no where near the $600+ price tags from other industry devices. No velcro on your gelcoat, it uses two strong suctions cups instead.

Anybody still riding this time of year and have room for another rider?
Live in Salt lake, but can meet at the lake or where ever.
Have all my own gear, good boat driver and always money for gas, bring beverages, whatever works. I lived in Florida for a long time, I'm pretty fluent with boating, wakeboarding, etc.
Haven't been out riding in a while and would love to get a little bit of water time in before the season drops off!

Hey Rich,
Weekly availability changes week by week, but have my schedule booked out a ways so I know where I can take time quite a bit in advance.
Should I send you a PM so we can exchange info?
