OK, time for a spring poll as the weather is breaking (for most of us) and the season is getting under way:

Razz, you'll whine about anything won't you? LOL. Your favorite thing. Even if you like chocolate and vanilla you have to pick one or the other.

Would drink beer be a subcategory of "just chill"?
Or do we need to add another option?;)

Subcategory? Isn't that what "chill" means?

Webster's Dictionary:

chill: v. To hang out on a watercraft and consume cool beverages.

I just like to water ski and take the boat back when I'm done. I may have back surgery so I may try that chillin thing since that is all I will be able to do.

I did that for all you old guys that only ski-- the eyesight ain't what it used to be so I put it right there where you could see it.

Mine was a tricky answer - a toss up between skiing and wakeboarding. I think I'd normally pick skiing, however with my injury I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to get back on the ski. I rode my wakeboard last week for the first time and it felt great, so I'd imagine the skiing will be no issue, but I guess we'll see, once I get the leg muscles built back up!

surfing and relaxing.
I won't use chillin, as that's what I do with my barley pops and I've had enough cold to last the season :)

Ed,
I'm not sure yet. I see the local orthropedic surgeon next week and a second opinion at Harborview in Seattle on May 13th. My chiropractor did well except the last three weeks I had two hospital visits and an ambulance ride. I have three herniated disks and two pinched nerve roots. At 54, I may be giving up basketball and I'm getting a medical back brace that should allow my to continue dirt bike riding and hopefully skiing. I'm going to delay any surgery until the fall if I can. I got some strong pain killers from the doctor yesterday to take in case I'm camping in the middle of nowhere in my RV and my back goes out. At least I can lay in bed for a few days and let the pain subside. My pain is in the mid section and some does down the sciatic but not very far.

If I can't ski, then pulling others will be it but that is more fun than laying flat on my back and doing physical therapy.

teak surfing - Washington State made SC send a letter out on that and now it is a $100 fine and more when your riders drown.

That's good to hear. I hope everyone knows I was making fun of the very idea of it as it is so idiotic.

That was a tough decision. I'm sure it may change in a few years.

Ok guys what is platform surfing?

Platform surfing or teak surfing or "teaking" refers to a once trendy activity where "riders" would hang on to the platform and bodysurf behind an inboard boat. After a few folks were overcome with CO2 and some allegedly drowned, the practice has fallen out of favor and is illegal in many states.
