Video from x25 tower cam

Just got back from FanFare in Vonore. Can't say enough good things about the experience (maybe I'll make a different thread for that). One thing I did want to post since I hadn't see it anywhere else is the video we captured from the tower camera. This was shot entirely from the tower on the X25. Notice there's no audio from the setup. I believe there is an option to add a microphone but this boat didn't have one installed. The boat I'm getting on at the end is, of course, an X2.

I'm more than willing to answer any questions except ones about my poor riding -- I'm getting old and am still a little overweight. Give me a break!

Thank you! Sweet riding, too! X25 is on my bucket list. Seems like a great wakeboard and surf boat!

which engine? Indmar or Ilmor? The wake on the X25 is so sweet, I love riding behind that boat.

Ilmor but I don't recall which one. I drove a bunch of different boats that day. If I had to guess I would say the 6.1

Cool vid, but the MC tower cameras aren't HD?

So, can you tell us if Vonore is really like the Yellow Brick Road...?
