I really like the guy that runs WakeWorld, David Williams, based on the limited interaction I have had with him. Seems like a cool dude and I'm glad he has a cool resources for some things we don't cover here.

But, this is why I stay away and lurk more than post.

I've been lurking WW for over three years now and have never made 1 post. Bunch of D-Bags over there IMO.

I post over there occasionally, but overall, a lot of garbage unless you own the boat of the year and join in with the bandwagoners..

Agreed...speaking of pics was that your camera you all were using to take pics of my wave and us surfing down at the Jam? We'd really like to see those. Julie especially...

Nice pics of some of the fairer sex.

I always felt that the Chattawake guy was a huge attention whore. I don't know how he can afford a new boat ever frikken year!

That's all wakeworld is anymore. There's really no good that comes out of that site. For weeks they've been bitching and moaning about the new CC G23 vs the new XStar and also there is a thread about tige vs MB. It's sad.

I was looking forward to seeing the pics of the new supra but now the trolls have entered the thread and are bashing it (granted I don't like everything about it)

Really? I have always thought he was pretty objective in his posts. He is a lawyer by day by the way. Apparently he gets these boats at near cost so it's not as painful as you would think.

Chatt's some type of attorney, makes good money and gets his boats at cost nearly so he got a good thing going. IMO he's about the only one that seems half decent

I was viewing a good thread over that last week and the drama just took over. Killed it, decomposed it and left it on the road side for the buzzards....

Lots of childish stuff from so called grown ups.

I've never known an attorney to have that much free time. He's either on the water or or WW.

All depends how up the food chain you are. I know and deal with a lot of attorneys and they all are in chill mode for the most part

Chattwake is on Wakeboarder.com as well... he has always been a cool dude over there. And lawyers have all the time in the world...if it's billable time! :)

Thats a typical thread and reason i never goto WW site. Its been like that as long as i can remember. You cant even go on there and post something positive on a boat they all like, because someone will twist it around and start a wake hate thread about it.
