A Wake Video From Our Past Couple Years on the Water

So a good friend of mine took all of our boating footage from the past couple years and put together a little video of the good times. It's about 15 minutes long and ya, there are a lot of backrolls, so I don't blame you if you can't watch the whole thing.

However he did a great job editing it with our low end riding and in 10 or 20 years it will be great to look back upon. Watching the video, we realised just how much fun we've had over the years. I couldn't imagine not having summers and boating to look forward too.

I'd say the crash section is the highlight. Kind of explains all the aches and pains my 36 year old body has. Hope you enjoy it.

Nice video. You guys are nuts! Winter riding from what I assume is a four wheeler or snowmobile. No thanks! But the video did prepare me for this summer of trying air raleys!

Sweet video. Thanks for sharing.

1. Looks really cold!
2. Some of those crashes make me wince, makes me remember some personal face plants strapped into the board...

Thanks for the comments. Yes, it's usually pretty cold when we ride. We get about a week of 70 degree water in August but its usually in the 50's and low 60's and early and late in the year it's in the 40's hence all the dry suits and wet suits.

Most of this was filmed behind my old Moomba, but there are a few choice follow behind shots where you can get a peak of the X-30.

Nice video. I watched on my phone. I'll have to re-watch again later on a full sized monitor.
