    Default Hootin' and Hollerin' for the Wakesurfer

    Because of the rising lake levels of the Clermont Chain of Lakes, yesterday I was able to get into a large lake that has a slalom ski course.

    While surfing, I could see in the distance that two boats where taking their turns running the course.

    I gave my driver the signal and we plowed our way towards the course.

    Seeing the wave that was coming towards them (and a very loud Van Halen being played), the ski boats pulled over - one on each side of the course.

    I surfed my way straight up thru the slalom course, made a huge turn and surfed back thru the course for a 2nd time.

    I received a standing ovation from the skiers

    That was quite fun - I recommend you try it.

    LOL! yea I'm sure.

    I talked with them after I took my bows. It was actually the 1st time one boater had seen anyone surfing and I took him out for him to try it.

    I think we may have some new converts to the sport!

    Without knowing in advance what their reaction would be - why would you do that?
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

    very simple...as George Mallory once stated "because it is there".

    I know the guy who owns it. It is open to whoever wants to use it, as long as we all pitch in and maintain it.
