Outstanding goal... especially #2 - Park Bonifay says it's water not concrete so throw the trick... if that's true why are faceplants soooo unpleasant...?

1. Get inverted on the wakeboard.
Wait I've already done that.

1.a. Get inverted on the wakeboard on purpose.
2. Ride away from 1.a.
3. Survive the above while turning 50 this summer.

Would love to get back on a course, but there currently isn't one on our lake. Just discovered that there is an old college ski team member a few houses down from me at the lake. We went to the same school a couple of years apart. Hopefully we can get together and do some slalom this year.

It's amazing how much harder water gets as you get above 20. Wakeboard digs in = 21.5->0 while body continues at 21.5.

Last time I was out I ended up a little too much on the back foot on a wake jump and did about 140 degrees without even trying. Why would that remaining 220 degrees be so difficult?

I don't like #4 - -

I know #1 has been rough... the illinois river for most is still 7-8 feet above flood stage...

Lol, if you knew me in person you'd know that I occasionally add a hint to sarcasm to things I say.

What exactly does it mean when it's that far above flood stage? Most decent sized lakes here are still covered in ice...
