First Boat Set with Liquid Force.




With my days winding down here in San Diego, I've been trying to do something new almost everyday. Yesterday I finally got to go wakeboarding behind a real boat.  We headed up to Encinitas to meet up with Kevin and Bo at Liquid Force Headquarters.  They wrapped up at work and we headed up to the bay for a quick sunset set.  When we arrived we had to put the boat in and prep everything for the session. Seemed reminiscent to the setup I do before I hit the water kiting at the REAL Slick.

BBQ anyone?

Look at the glass!!!!

We got the boat in and got all the gear ready, for some reason I was really nervous.  Everyone had always told me that the boat is super hard and the falls are harder.  Once I hit the water it all started to make sense.  


After a few laps my confidence was up and I managed to land a few tantrums, front and backside flat 3's, and even managed to pull out a fs 5.  I can't believe how amazing it is to get behind one of these puppies.  The wake is perfect and it's so consistent.

Ba Boom!

Sensi gearing up

With the setting sun, we decided to call it a night.  We pulled the boat out of the salt water and started the cleaning.  Turns out wake boats arn't made for salt water, makes packing up a kite seem like a breeze.  I can't wait until the next time I can get out behind a boat.  Like Kevin said, "Wakeboarding is a sport of the privileged.".  I'm just happy that I got to finally get out on a real wake!
