Surfin USA

So this is Jason & I's favorite water sport now- wakesurfing. It is SO MUCH FUN. Jason is already a pro, as you can see in the picture below. He can surf behind the boat w/out the rope for at least 30 seconds, if not a 1minute. It's really fun to watch. In the last picture, he even surfed up to the swim deck on the back of the boat and just stepped right on! Kinda freaked me out b/c I wasn't expecting it, but he meant to do it all along! For me, however, it was only my 3rd time to surf, so I never quite found the 'sweet spot' in the wake to where I could let go of the rope and just ride. But I still had a blast, b/c it's so dang fun. (plus it doesn't hurt to fall! even though I STILL have to hold my nose, as evidenced by the 3rd picture down, much to Jason's delight when he captured the moment) I also shriek like a girl every time I fall, too. I don't know why! It's just instinct, both holding my nose and shrieking. Oh well, I'm not ashamed! I'm just glad I can still do water sports with no fear of tearing another ACL (as I did wakeboarding 2 summers ago). We love the lake & we love Ryan & RAchel's boat. It puts out a pretty wicked surfing wave, even though you can't tell by the pictures. Fun times!

    I just learned to get up, but crash every time... still haven't even gotten on the "wave". Chris and Katie are awesome, and Drew is getting pretty good himself-- he almost pulled off a 360 (with the rope) the other day. Good times!

    If you think you enjoy wakesurfing now, wait until you try a Shred Stixx. Check out www.TXshreds.com for information on the boards.

    Our boards allow for an actual surf style ride and beginners can stay in the wave in the ride no problem. Don't hesitate to contact us through the website for a possible demo in you area. See you on the water!
