Nice glassy water but it definitely looked COLD.

Scott - The boat is in the shop right now. I couldn't go another day with that darn beep! So far, they haven't found anything wrong though. Compression is perfect and no oil leaks so who knows!

In fact, they ran the boat for 30 minutes and the alarm didn't beep once. It's a good thing I have it on video or they wouldn't believe me! haha

Great stuff. Christie, I was just about to start a thread wondering when we were gonna get another video fix! Something about your videos are real; I guess I can just relate to them.

Greg: just my opinion, but after a couple of hard crashes the brain is sorta scrambled, which means it will be even tougher to land the same trick-- especially when you are as cold as you guys must have been. Sometimes progress can't be made, and it's best to retreat a bit and try again after regrouping. I don't want to see you get hurt, man!

Mark: I just love the style and ease of your backrolls. That front whatever at the beginning was huge, sweet and . . . I think I'm gonna go watch it again!

Thanks, Christie-- keep them coming!

I hear ya Steve. I don't want to get hurt either, thanks for the concern.

After watching myself in that video I realize I did take a pretty big beating but it actually wasn't that bad at the time. Maybe a few screws were loose allowing me to continue. I was a little sore the next day but not sore enough to stop me from doing it again. I took about 10 or so hits that day (the 10th) and then another 12 the next day but then landed the 13th, 14th, and 15th attempts on the second day.

Unfortunately if I threw in the towel after taking a hit or two on the Raley it would take me a few months to land it. By sticking with it I was able to work on it more while it was fresh in my mind. I can take a good beating and still focus. I stop attempting a new trick once I start getting tired, when I know I am not able to give it a 100%. To me that's when it gets dangerous. I mean don't get me wrong I admit I was a little lucky to not get hurt during all those failed attempts.

Mark your first Front Roll in the vid was huge. Awesome, next time I am out with you I'd like to work on that trick with your help.

Stef - You KNOW it!

Steven - Thanks for the comments. I'm glad that people other than the folks in the vids enjoy them as well.

Andrew - You have the most interesting ways of phrasing things.....gave me quite a visual

That was fun to watch thanks.

Greg & Christie - On those heel side jumps, if you take a little more weight off your back foot you will be more level coming off the wake, keeping the nose of the board down a bit.

Another great Fisher video. However, I think that very last part of Josh rocking out to oldies music and driving was very cute. Does he give a good pull too?

Wow Christie, someone has you beat in the crash department.
Greg how do you keep trying those raleys to face plant and keep coming back for more? I could not believe you did all those in a row like that.
Very nice crash sequences.

GOD. I loved the crash section, pretty brutal.

Believe it or not the crashes were not that bad. Most of time I tuck my head in and turned into a human torpedo. Only 1 or 2 really knocked me and that was when I landed on my back. They did look pretty bad though.
