Cool pics Shawn! We've got a GoPro but haven't tried attaching it to the handle yet.

I used an old broom handle that is hollow. Passed the rope through it and then secured it to the rope on both ends. At first this was a disaster because the camera was too heavy and it just flopped around and ended up pointing straight down. Next we tried taping the pole to the handle to keep it from spinning and again it moved around too much. Finally, I used some metal strips to brace against the side of the wake handle and the broom handle and taped them all in place. It worked perfectly for a while but the water eventually ate away at it and I had to take it all apart.

I'm going to go back into the secret laboratory and cook up a more permanent solution with an old handle I have lying around.

Shawn, on WakeWorld someone cooked up a pretty slick mount using PVC pipe and a T with plug in it.

That would certainly work better (and I wouldn't get stabbed by metal when the tape started to wear out!).

Edit: I see now how this could work perfectly... I'm going to Home Depot today!

Nothing to great but learned how to go wake to wake a short time ago. Did a few grabs and got a w to w 180 but my camera person was to cold by that time to take anymore pics.

Try weighting the boat a little more evenly. Your boat is leaning a ton to the driver's side causing a nasty wash on that passenger side. It will also give you a bit more pop as the wake will stand up a bit when the boat gets level. Most of all keep charging it like you are :)

Thanks for the advice and encouragement. It was me and 2 babes in the boat who thought they were freezing to death (65 degrees). The observer kept moving onto the drivers side so she could put the heater hose in her shirt. I thought it was easier to put up with a washy wake instead of trying to reason with her to sit on the opposite side.

Hahaha. I am with you. I'll just take the wash.

i like this one even though we didn't get a picture of the grab on the board. I think i had enough time to grab the board eventually.

How old is your Son? I have a 2 year old and he is starting to ask to get on the board with me, more like beg. He holds on to the rope in the yard, starts on his back pulls him self up and then tries to do tricks that he sees us do behind the boat. here is one of him "wakeboarding" while cruising on the pontoon. http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e86/kskonnord/harrisonwakeboard-1.jpg

There is nothing really impressive about this jump, but I just like the shot with the sunset in the background. That was behind the 205, last summer, I believe. I need to get some shots behind the new boat.
