Already brought a seasonpass on iTunes. Just because I could not think of a better to support the show and thereby the entire industry...

From the preview, Bob Soven.... "business in the front, party in the back"
Looks like it will be very entertaining!

I told my kid it will probably be very little actual wakeboarding and more stupid reality show. I bet the previews have more boarding footage than the actual show. Its good that wakeboarding is getting air time though.

You guys can watch the pilot episode on there, they have it streaming.

There's a little boarding in it... not really what the show revolves around though from the look of it. Looks like it's more about the brothers and how they are together as roomies, rivals, and brothers.

Bunch of pros are in the show though... including Dallas (Oh... and there's lots of other hotties in bikinis too)


Honestly, probably not something you want your 10 year old watching. The idea behind that episode was for Bob to get some a$$...

I watched a few episodes tonight. I think it's a pretty decent show. It revolves around their sibling rivalry, but the 'cast' is mostly pro wake boarders, and there are some good boarding/boating/bikini scenes. Unlike 'Jackass' which was (IMO) a bunch of idiots and it's not like the other stupid reality shows like Jersey Shore - this is more like "The Odd Couple" in a water sports setting with some seriously good athletes. And, I must say they are 'living the life'

Get rid of the two dorky brothers and the show would be good...watched it Friday night, just aweful...like watching 2 little girls poke each other for 30 minutes...don't think I will be recording this for a rainy day...

I wish one of the ESPNs would be showing old water ski tounraments as they day old baseball, football and other shows.

Just watched Monday's (9/3) episode of Wakebrothers. Finally some real wakeboarding riding there and seeing an X-Star, SANTE, and Malibu all on the same lake. The competition was at Orlando Watersports Complex and they were pulled it with a new G23.

So Phil is a Malibu Team member with his big Black and Yellow Pickle Fork Bu.
Bob is a Nautique Team Member with his Blue and White SANTE.
I wonder who's White and Blue X-Star was on the show? Harleys, Rusty's??
