After working the boat show, I sure do. Then, Russ goes and posts pics of his boat in tow & dry suit in the truck. I live vicariously thru him and enjoy some surf vids. Here are a few vids from my favorite riders.

Man i called that water temp like a pro this morning when you said you were going out LOL.

If i wasnt working i would have went with you. I wouldnt have surfed as all i have is a wet suit but i would have been happy to drive LOL

Next time you have to plan this for a Sunday man

I gotta say those Purple Transom lights they kept turning on were sweet looking. In Dominic video.

I also prefer the Tige RZ2 wave to the Centurion. The Centurion just looks smaller and washed out more on top, also the water conning off the side of the boat was real washing and looks to just slow you down in the flats if you wanted to bottom turn back into the wave.

Guys, great pics, Brains no so much.... jk

Had some buddies out waterskiing last weekend up north here as well,

I probably missed this, what happened to the tower ?

And two make sure to tether that gopro, the floaty I hear will only support the camera, not the mount.

I took the tower off just for the winter so the XLV will clear my 7' garage door. With the tower off I can store it in the garage and do crazy things like take it out in the winter without worrying about freezing overnight and never drying out under a tarp. It is just too hard to drain all the water, dry it out, cover it, and tarp it outside before the sun goes down during the winter. The garage is attached to the house and stays around 50 degrees but I still drain the water, just in case, but I dont have to be in such a hurry.

The go pro definitely will sink with just the floaty back door (orange float). I have a key float attached to the base as well. I float tested it in the sink before river use. I have knocked the camera and mount off a few times and she floats nicely with two floats.

Okay fellas, here ya go. Some of the audio is pretty bad but you'll live - that's what you get when sitting right in front of the speakers with a cheezy camera and holding it up in the arctic wind... It does drown out the teeth chattering though.

Awesome riding guys, if you havnt done so it looked like Berg was leaning pretty hard on the nose of the XXX boards, try removing the center fin. It doesnt make it too much more loose but speeds the board up a lot.

Love your music Russ, going to have to bring my flash drive over sometime and have a few beers with you LOL

Sorry bro - one of those awkward things where you get invited and don't wanna come back with "hey, is it ok if we take these 3 other guys too." Shoulda known better - Russ it totally cool and has a big boat!



Kane - did attempt one at the very end but it was rather pathetic. IIRC Russ made an attempt too, but having that wall of ice water come crashing over your head was about as fun as having an open freezer tip over on you.

Yeah, the TripleX's were a bit small for me but Russ was tearing it up on them!

The Hagg does reach 80, for 1 weekend a year i think in early Sept LOL. I think the hotest i ever seen the water is 82 at the Hagg, none of the rivers get that warm, and none of our big body lakes get that warm.

Thank gawd for that IMO, as water over 78 is getting pretty unsatisfing to cool off in and water over 90 is just makes me feel queezy and 96 degree water like in Texas, thats down right torture LOL

You guys would laugh hard at my crew when they jump in our river on a 94 degree day and the water is still only 78 so they scream like it's ice cold.

Our water gets too warm here and the microscopic creepy crawlers start multiplying and taking over and the fish disappear or die.

Only time I've been in water in the 80-90's water outside of a pool was in a tropical location snorkeling!

We felt brave when we rode in just heater tops the weekend after thanksgiving this year. Water was in the mid 60s I believe and felt plenty cold.

Then after we saw three big lizards it became that much harder to get into!

Our local club made it out this weekend for a camping trip. 52 degree water temp

My fault. The GoPro had about 3 minutes of battery life. I thought I charged it the night before but I guess not.

how did you guys like the triple x board

That was my first time on any skim style board so I can't comment too much on the Comp x, it felt real loose but I guess that is the design. When I found a decent location for my rear foot it felt like it was speedy enough for me.

The Nitro was much better for me after I removed the rear center fin. It seemed to be forgiving for me when I put heavy front foot pressure on the board (not pearling).

I still need a few more pulls to get used to the boards but my first impression is that I want to ride them again. I don't feel that way about a couple of boards that I have.

It was also very awkward to surf with the drysuit and thick under layers. I was trying to adjust to that as well.

bergermaister
01-22-2013, 11:38 AM
In general I think they were both too short for my big arse. The skim was a wild ride for sure - be fun in the summer to do some spins and play when you're less worried about dunking. Felt way loose.

The Nitro carved like a wakeboard at first - before the center fin came out. Didn't ride it again after that. I could see Boon pulling some nice airs with it and after a little more riding time even bigger airs I'm sure.

I still want a TripleX (or 2) of my own, just need a bigger board.
