    My buddy called me yesterday asking how long into the week my arms were hurting from wake boarding, it was a solid 3, 4 days! After watching that video, it made up my mind, I think I will have to purchase my first surf board. I have the ballast just need the board. Nice work!

    Here is the latest from last weekend. Our first weekend at the lake with the boat. Had a blast. I used iMovie without a template for this one. Took about 2-3 hours every night this past week to put together, hardest part was syncing up with the music. Not perfect but I learned a lot on how to use the software.

    Thanks for inviting us along @GiddYupJoe. The kids looked like they had a great time. Did the weeds at your dock cause you any problems with the boat?

    @Gym to my surprise not at all. I tried to avoid them the best I could, but one time while backing in my wife advised me that I was pretty much in the middle of them, nothing happened.

    @Ronnie thanks! We bought the boat for the family aspect; however, getting out a few times a year with just the adults is a nice change.

    Do you have the tube tied to the cleat?
    Just wondering, I bet my son would love doing that close to the boat.

    @McTafur I use Vimeo. They do not compress and they keep it letter boxed for you. you tune does not. The only annoying thing is that after it uploads they make you wait in line prior to it posting. Sometimes around 45 min. Then you can grab the link and post it.
    Looks like y'all had a great time on the water! Are using any sort of handle when you have the camera mobile? A short extension of some sort may help with the shaky ness.
