Was wondering how some of you guys came up with your board names, we've got some pretty unique ones here. So post up how/why you picked your board name and what it means if anything.

I'll go first...My name is Erik Forinash so e4nash seemed pretty easy. Creative huh?

Mine came from trying about 50 different names for an ebay ID about 12 years ago. I was on there for the first time trying to buy some boat gauges and every name I tried was taken. So I put my middle name with "boats" and there you go.

zabooda - During the old dialup internet days I would do the one month trials for one company and switch when that was cancelled to another free trial. I went something like two years not paying for internet and I would use this name I made up as no one else used it. I use it everywhere so when the news has a person named zabooda arrested it is probably me.

A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, or maybe it was during a gaming night after work, the combination of pizza, beer and Quake (anybody remember that one?) led to a screen name born from BeerMaister that morphed into Bergermaister.

You know when you catch that front edge while wakeboarding which leads to the immediate and often violent face plant? We call that move the brain rinse. Also known as the front side 90 or the scorpion if your board comes up out of the water behind you.

Evoimport6

When I was 18 yrs old was my favorite car( Mitsubishi Evolution6), and was a life goal to import one. However had to settle on a evo 7. so Evoimport6 stuck.

I went to college in Boone, NC and spent more time off road in my Jeep than I did in class. Boonejeepin

I have used that screen name for about 14 years now.

My wife agreed to a boat if I got rid of the Jeep when my daughter was born. Neither of us were comfortable with a carseat strapped in to a vehicle with a soft top. Maybe one day I will have a Jeep and a boat.

should probably change it, but sandm is "S"cott "AND" "M"arla, my and the ex's name. it's what's on all the forums I belong to. a lot think sandman, but I tell people it's S and M :)

actually tried to get that on a license plate as well. went thru and got a call from the dmv supervisor 2 days later and told me I couldn't have it. I asked why(playin dumb) and she just said "you know why" and told me to pick something else.. similar to evoimport, ended up with FAST4DR on the evo instead.. almost picked V8EATR but didn't want to brag too much :) :)

You wouldn't believe some of the stuff I've seen in the marital arts world. Some of these people would make Rex look like a true professional.

awesome vids. I SSOO cannot wait for my son to turn 18 so we can jump!!!! Been wanting to do it for years. Dad used to have a parasail we pulled behind the boat, and I started that about 8-10 years old!

put the wife & kids on the back of my FZ1 all the time, just not at the same time :p Selling a bike doesn't put much of a dent in a boat. lol.

parasailing was awesome! went every chance i could. first time sucked, as i weighed about 1/2 the low limit and got stuck up when a storn was rolling in. dad climbed hand-over-hand 250' of rope (actually more since he fell off a couple times) to get me down. i remember freaking out thinking i was going to end up in the next town, which i could easily see over the trees! i was only like 8-10 years old i think. went right back up next time he let me tho'!

Back in 2000 Sean Combs, aka PDiddy, came out with a Hit Single - Bad Boys for Life and that was my come out song when I hit the mound back in my ball playin days...

I was a sophomore and the Seniors gave me the nickname TGoody to go along with my come out song by PDiddy. It stuck all through high school and carried on over to college ball.
Still to this day, 13yrs later, I run into people back home that yell out TGOODY when they see me and they prolly couldn't even tell you my full name haha

Saskyrider -- double meaning. Obviously i'm from Saskatchewan hence the Sasky and Rider is for both riding behind the boat and the Saskatchewn Roughriders our provincial football team and the only pro team in Saskatchewan of any sport. It is like a cult following.... for that team... we outsell all 8 other teams combined in merchandise sales...

I went to college in Boone, NC and spent more time off road in my Jeep than I did in class. Boonejeepin

I have used that screen name for about 14 years now.

Well, I have a Jeep and a boat, so it's certainly possible!

I guess I have more creativity going into my personalized plates on my vehicles. When I can't use "trayson", sometimes I use some of my personalized plates:

IGOZOOM: plate on my '98 BMW M3 Cabriolet
KID4EVA: plate on my '00 Jeep TJ rockcrawler (because I'll never grow up)
LUV2PLA: Plate that is going from my now dead '99 Audi A6 Avant to my newly acquired '02 Audi S6 Avant.

My avatar on this forum is a Stormtrooper helmet because my boat is all black and white and I decided to name it "Stormtrooper" and have a few star wars-ish graphics on it...
