.... sitting at a restaurant in downtown Doha, Qatar eating dinner. A big group of people come in and sat at the table two down from me. After sitting there for a while I started to recognize some faces. :eek3: It was the USA Pro Wakeboarding team! Dallas Friday, Phil Soven, Andrew Adkinson, and a few others. I was pretty stoked. I went over to the table and introduced myself. I met all of them and they were very friendly. I will look forward to getting to see them ride this saturday at the IWSF World Cup Finals. Im pretty excited and just wanted to share. :cool: I sure wish I would have had a camera.:(

Somehow that story reminds of of Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now.

:uglyhamme I can see him now:

"C'mon Dallas, grab your gear! There's a terrorist training camp 20 clicks southeast of Shiraz in Iran. They got a killer lake there with warm, deep water and plenty of wind protection -- miles of glass! We'll swoop in at sunup, wipe out the bastards with our gunships, and Mikey here will drop the XStar in the water for some sick wakeboard runs!" :D

Great clips thanks bigmac. Not relevant, but the helicopter assault is one of the all-time great war movie scenes.
