And absolutely love it. Keeping it slipped is the best 100 a month ever spent. So far been put 2 or 3 times a week for the past two months. I need to teach my girlfriend to drive so I can get more wakeboarding time. Anyway, this is from a while ago.

I'm having cataract surgery in July so I expect to see where the wake is better and start doing tricks.

Anyway, posting as a follow up to the poll I did on if I should get it or not.

I must need the surgery too because I see no boat in the vid....just some bodybuilder being dragged along the water before he eats it....and a finger.


:D


Looks like fun Dru!

Sweet Dru but what kind of boat? I wake boarded 2 years ago for the first time and wrenched my SI joint. I said screw it I'm too old for that. And where you been?

Nothing like a front edge to wake you up in the morning... :D
Good call on the boat Dru!

Yeah, I can't even DRIVE a jet ski w/o my neck hurting for days afterwards. Sucks getting old.

Sounds good, though.

Here's the pics. My favorite thing to do is beach it and hang with friends. Of course, the extra beer isn't too helpful... LOL.

Done! Way too much fun, hurting my lifting schedule... lol

Her name is Helen Keller, as chosen by a friend of mine. You may see her, but she won't see you... LOL.


That's awesome! Congrats. And yes, what did you get? Thanks! 2012 Bayliner 195. 4.8l mercruiser 19.5", swim platform, yada yada. Lover her!

That face plant in the video hurt my neck for days... Since then, I've learned to ski when it's less choppy and to let go of the rope.

No sh!t lol. That one hurt. I've gotten much better since. When the boat is planed out, the chop is much better, unless the lake is crowded, so getting used to that aspect.

You should do it again! at 15mph, it's hard to get too wrecked. I absolutely love it, and a great workout too, my thighs burn after 5 minutes or so every time.

LOL douchebag! Come to Atlanta and hang. It's way fun.

Nice boat. We spend all of the summer on the river here hanging out on the sand bars. Lots of people and always a good time. Hubs doesn't wakeboard but does ski. You should try it behind a Nitro Z9 with a Mercury 250 ;) LOL!

Enjoy it!

As a former boat owner, the 2 best days of your life are the day you get the boat and the day you get rid of the boat. I measure poverty in terms of things like boats and stock cars.

Seriously, have fun with it. Nothing better than being out on the water on a hot summer day especially with kids. These are the days that they will always look back upon.

Those bass boats are crazy. Saw a guy about flip his the other day. He was full throttle and took it right behind a cruiser. Front end was practically straight up in the air.

No thanks, I snowboard and take some pretty big risks each winter, i don't need another sport that could potentially take me out of the gym. :D

Yeah my husband fishes ALOT of bass tournaments and when they blast off it is all about getting to the best holes first. It worries me because it is so many boats on the water jockeying for a good spot. His theory has always been...He who has the fastest boat shall get to fish the hole first"

Sometimes he likes to run it pretty damn fast with me in the boat. Feels like nothing but the prop is in the water. Lucky for me I have some "Whoa Dammit" bars I can hang on to :D

It's a beauty :) really!
Lots of fun ahead!

(And please don't mix beer with boating. Seen too many deaths related to that - stay smart.)
