Well, a couple good friends that i grew up wakeboarding with came down this weekend on sunday afternoon and we went out... this was the first time for me surfing and the first time I loaded my boat down...

750 in rear locker, 300 on driver's side seat (old factory bag) 750 in the walkway to bow.

the board is a phase 5 and is 4' 6" long... i'm 205lbs so it was pretty tricky... i'll be picking up a 5' board for learning on next week...

so much fun !!!!:p

P.s. apologies on the music.... my son put the disc in... and i neglected to change it... lol

Lookin' good and good looking wave as well. Next time you drop way back in the pocket, move your back foot about 6-8" towards your front foot. That will shift your weight forward as well as get your back leg out of the white wash and will help you get back into the pocket.
