Had a great day on the water yesterday. Got to start to get the feel of the new TripleX board. I really like it compared to the Broadcast. It's much faster but a lot more slippery. I ate it twice before this video. Air was about 75 and water 67.

Also got a wakeboarding run in after the kids were done. Just enough to stretch out the arms. Not running any ballast just wakeplate half way up. Need to drop some winter pounds-- that's for sure.

Happy to share. Daughter #1 is my driver. Daughter #2 is the photo/video gal. They do a great job and make the day a lot of fun.

Thanks for posting. You obviously live somewhere nice and warm unlike your Canadian neighbor here! How old are your daughters? I was paying special attention to how the boat was driven in the first video - she does a great job! Think this year it's my 16 year olds chance to learn to drive so mom isn't stuck waking up at 6:00am on summer mornings! LOL

Mom won't drive unless there's no one else. I started when she was small -- teaching her all about what everything does. Then I'd let her drive all the way home at the end of the day. Later on, pull her brothers while I sat there next to her. She's 17 next month and is a very experienced driver. Younger one is 12 and I have to really get busy on her cuz there's only one more year till the older one heads off to school.

Funny thing is that I'm usually the only surfer so my daughter is a way more experienced surf driver than I am.

Nice ride!

Board looks fast and loose-you have fins in the rear

It's the Triple X Composite 58" board. Got it off ebay real cheap. I'm extremely happy with it. I'm about 225 right now and it rides just fine. It says it's rated for any weight and I was a bit suspicious. It can definitely handle it though. It has only one small fin so it's pretty loose but it makes it a lot of fun to ride.

Wave looking pretty sweet. I can't wait to get my new sacs in so I can get a little better wave and get a more time on my xxx. Nice video.

Awesome Pat glad to hear Shinedown playing while you were surfing lol.

Nice switch ridding on the wake board too.

Thanks! I grew up a bad slalom skier so riding switch is real hard for me. I try to work on it every time out but I'm still a one way jumper. I may have found a wakeboard coach for the kids this week though. Maybe they can avoid my bad habits.

I think that was Daughtry playing during that ride, wasn't it?

FYI: There are some potentially great deals coming up on boards just like the one I'm riding in the vid:
