Mike (aka mmandley) and I met up at Hagg Lake on Sunday for some surfing and hanging out. I had me and my wife and two kids, he had a buddy Carlos, main squeaze Claudia, and Brian from Exile Audio on board. Great day, not too many others on the water, and water temp was about 62-63 which is a lot better than the 54 degrees that it was two weeks ago. Now for some pics.

My 13 year old surfing behind Mike's boat. He's got 750 in the rear, 400 in the ski locker, and a 600(?) in the nose. My son commented how long the wave is compared to ours (we have the 750 and the 400 but don't have a bow bag). This is a good pic showing how long the pocket is. That's Brian from Exile behind the lens.

Great Pics Al and great Video.

Your pretty correct about my sacs. The front is a 650 but it prolly has closer to 600 in it.

Water was awesome at 63 compared to a couple weeks ago at 54 LOL. It has graduated to Refreshing instead of dam cold LOL.

We tried the Bowl effect but Al wasn't loaded down for surfing, we have a decent looking wave going but Keenan wasn't able to hold it to Als boat. A little practice and we will have it down and video it.

If you look at the second pic, in front of Brian you will see Osito's head sitting there. Osito is our now 4.5 month old black lab. Osito = Little Bear

Awesome pictures........I need to get out.
Spent the better part of 3 days getting the boat/trailer all serviced and cleaned up. Feels good to have a spotless boat. Now ready to hit the water if mother nature cooperates!

It looked like a warm calm day on the water too?

viking,

Did you get your stripped trailer hub screw issue fixed?

Yeah, air temp was in the mid 70's and the water stayed calm all day. The wind didn't kick up like it usually does in the afternoon. By the time we pulled out at about 7pm or so, the water was of course like glass.

Al,
thanks for asking. I did!!
I ended up having to use and extractor to get it out. Even then it fought me! Searched all weekend and finally found a brass plug at NAPA. It is a tapered pipe thread so not everyone has them! I bought a couple extras in case I need them! Takes forever to drain and fill back up in such a small hole :)

Thank you sir! BTW your boats look great and I am jealous of your wave! But now I know at least how to lengthen the pocket on mine. Damn! Another order to Wakemakers! :D Anyone got a promotional coupon number they can lend me? :D

I just checked my notes and that's what Spencer with wakemakers gave me. Looks like it expired. You might call them and see if they will still give it to you.

Sorry.
