Here is a quick video I threw together of probably our last ride of the season, unless it's really, really, really calm this saturday. Water was 49, Air 55 but on the boat it was chilly. Riding, the only really cold part actually was our hands. I decided to not wear the gloves which was a mistake. We usually use latex gloves tucked into the dry suit. keeps the hands dry which is the key! Anyways the first guy riding is a friend of mine who just started wakeboarding this year. These are his first three attempts at backrolls, and he is getting pretty close. The guy in the yellow vest with the 2 kids is me. Black suit guy was riding 62 feet at 21.7 and I was riding 70 feet at 22.7 behind my 2008XLV with 2600lbs full and 2 people on the boat. By the peir the water is only 6-8 feet deep so the wake is pretty small where we were trying to film from.

Thanks guys. It was a fun day. Forecast is not looking so good for tomorrow so that is probably going to be the end of the season right there. Such a shame, it was one of my best years. learned more new tricks this year then in any years past. Spent more time on the boat with my kids and new friends. Enjoyed a lot of good days.

And for the enitre year, my boat performed without issue. I can honestly say that for the 4th season and 100 hours + of use this summer (370 total), her performance was and remains flawless.
