This past weekend we were in Ft. Worth, TX for the 2nd stop of the MasterCraft Pro Tour. Texas is HOT! I decided to ride at this stop because the water conditions are usually really good. My riding didn’t go as I planned but it was still fun to ride and be at the event. My friend and tour photographer Rodrigo Donoso took a cool shot of me during my run and posted it on TransWorld Wakeboarding site. The contest went well though, some of the highest level of riding we’ve seen in a Pro Tour final. Next weekend off to Colorado Spings.
So the season is in full effect now and I have been traveling a bit. I started off last month going down to Brazil for the 2nd stop of the WWA World Series. It was my first trip down there and it was cool to see a whole new place, the contest went good. I wasn’t riding but went down to drive the boat for the event. We did get some riding at the site after the event and went and checked out this winch spot with one of the local wakeskaters. After returning from that trip we headed to Acworth, GA for the first stop of the MasterCraft Pro Tour. Again I wasn’t competing but there doing my duties as one of the judges on the King of Wake series. The weekend was a fun trip and always a good stop to kick of the season.
This past weekend was the first stop of the King of Wake Series in Orlando. It was a good weekend of riding for Pro and Amateur riders. I rode this weekend and ended up doing well and made it to semifinals. I finished out 11th for the weekend which is one of my better contest finishes. I was pumped to ride well and make it to sunday.
This season I am also one of the judges on the King of Wake series so I will be traveling to all 8 stops. Should be a fun year of riding and hanging out in the boat.
With fuel prices nearing $4/gallon it’s very expensive to get around in our vehicles, especially if you drive an 8 cylinder Yukon. It’s also very expensive to enjoy our sport of wakeboarding with these outrages fuel costs. This has become a weekly trip to the fuel station to feed our 8.0 Liter XStar. One way to spend $170.
Last weekend I went down to Mexico to drive the boat for the first stop of the Wakeboard World Series in Valle De Bravo. It was my first trip to Mexico so I was looking forward to it, the site was on a very cool lake about 2 hrs south of Mexico City. The water over the weekend was a bit rough due to the mass of boats on the lake but the guys did their best with the conditions they were dealt and rode through it. Harley Clifford came out on top with Rusty Malinoski in 2nd, Adam Errington took 3rd and my homey and CWB team mate Trevor Hansen took 4th. Here is where we spent our time last weekend at Club Izar in Valle De Bravo.
