Thanks to Garrett, Justin, and Jarret for a really fun day today at Lake Elsinore. About 72 degrees and no wind, well at least until afternoon. Plenty of boats out for a Monday though, but I guess we weren't the only ones that decided to enjoy the holiday out on the lake.

This was Justin's first time wakeboarding. Here he is learning to get up.

He was stoked to get up and start riding, as you can tell from the look on his face.

That didn't last long and he took a couple of nice faceplants, but he didn't let that or the 54 degree water slow him down.

Garrett was riding smooth and going big, really nice floaty 360's too.

Jarret just recently got back from Iraq (he's a Marine) and has only ridden once in the last year or so, but he hasn't forgotten how to ride.

With just a little coaching he was even landing his backrolls, nice and big with solid landings.

Next we did a little wakesurfing, which Jarret and Justin had never tried. They picked it up quickly and had a blast.

Garrett couldn't resist jumping in for a quick surf too, even though he had to go backside - and it's his boat! (Thanks Garrett )

Riding switch on the Phase 5 proved to be a little more work, and a lot more water up the nose

Wakesurfing was a easy for Justin after learning to wakeboard earlier in the day. Here he shows off by tossing the rope and doing some carving.

All in all a great day, lots of fun and great company.

Thanks for the pics Bill. Had a great time. The pics are always. Jarrett was ripping and it's always great to get someone up for the first time. I'm sure Justin will be back for more now that he has a taste of it. It's wake addicting!!}

Is Jarrett on Wakeworld? I'd like to meet him.

Jarret doesn't have internet access from his place but apparently he'll get it soon. He needs to ride as much as possible this spring since they are being deployed again this summer.

Yes, EVERYBODY - please invite Jarrett out as much as possible. He sacrifices a lot for all of you to ride when you choose - include him in your fun.

And like Jim, Jarret had his letter to WBM published in the Oct 2003 issue. When he found out he was being stationed in SoCal he thought he would get to ride quite a bit, but less than 2 weeks after arriving in Cali he was on a ship heading to Iraq. Ended up missing the entire season last year fighting the war in Iraq. Just one of the many making huge sacrifices for the rest of us and all of the Iraqi people.
