Lake Trout Carry Out

Image
It seems that Manhattan Style has no clue what a modern picture of waterskiing should look like. The above picture is from an article about Assistant DA Jonathan Streeter skiing on the Hudson before going to work. We could say several humorous things about this pic and its inclusion in this article but this is the CRB and we are nothing if not always very serious. "while the yabbies?? are cooking on the BBQ, are you sure you're not an" interstate city wanker" yourself ? Cherabin maybe, no yabbies!" Yea, I'll second what he said. Somehow that was a response to this story about a guy in northern Australia getting in trouble for pulling his kid skiing behind a helicopter. The ODBF predicted another rough year for boat dealers around the country due to increasing gas prices and the falling prices in the home markets, but he is not an economist so instead we will take this writer for the Cedar Vally Business Monthly Online's opinion . Here is some pro

Not really tearing up big waves here but its some long distance surfing thats for sure. Its like wake surfing behind your boat...without the fumes...and your boat is bigger then a football field. Same thing. This reminds us of the Barefoot Machine which looks pretty fun as well. Who does not want to barefoot in a shipping container?

Goode as a company is pretty adept at using the youtubes to get out cheap advertising for their company. Normally the vids annoy me due to the way they stab you in the face with their name over and over again, but this vid is a good example of how to make a good advertising vid without getting on your intended markets nerves at the same time. Now it is 10 mins long and I only watched the first 2 1/2 mins because they started some nonsense interview that I could not give less of a shit about. But the first 2 mins are sweet! The new GoPro cameras are awesome and have opened up a whole new way to video skiing. The first person view of skiing makes sitting at my desk and looking at the miserable crap weather outside seem just a little bit easier...or it makes me hate all of you out there that live in warm climates all that much more...either or.

A day in the life of Rusty Malinowski. If this is a standard day in Rusty's life then I hate him with the power of 10,000 suns.

Cutting Edge CRB

Image
According to a bunch of charts our interns made* we need to make the CRB more mobile phone friendly. According to this chart by 2014 there will be more people accessing the interblag-o-sphere via mobile devices. HELLA PORN ON THE GO!!! WOOOOHOOOOO *Morgan Stanley And apperantly there are 4.5 billion people in the world using mobile phones and less then 2 billion using the interwebz from puters and lappys. That means the CRB is now avalable to 2.5 billion more people. Or about 3 more monthly viewers!! And if all 3 of those viewers click on our advertising links we could make at least 15 cents more a year. So with that said, the CRB is proud to announce the CRB now has a mobile website!! This took us over a year* of planning and development** and finally today it is up and running. So whip out your phone and take a look! *just checked a box **drinking and sleeping

Cable Parks All The Rage

Image
With gas prices going through the roof again and talk of those prices going over $4 or even $5 we could be on the verge of seeing another painful year for the boat industry. Nautique has been working on an electric boat but it is pretty unlikely we will see that boat anytime soon. Mastercraft seems to be going for the even higher end market where gas prices don't raise as many concerns. The boat industry is sadly unprepared for the new gas price realities, but there is a sector in the water sports world that will benefit from these gas pains. We have mentioned a few times in the Lake Trout Carry Out that cable skiing and wakeboarding has been growing all around the world. New cable sites seem to be popping up every other week. While the boat industry went through massive layoffs and even shut downs more and more money was being invested into new cable parks. As a three event skier its painful to watch wakeboarding dominate all of these parks and once we here at at the CRB qu

To make up for the point that the closest to waterski related we got today was a car crashing into a lagoon, we bring you some solid cable park wakeboarding. Still not water skiing you say? GET YOUR OWN DAMN SITE THEN!! Jeez, everyone trying to tell us how to do our jobs, I don't roll into your work and tell you how to do...whatever it is working people do. We are way to rich to have to belittle ourselves by joining the dirty masses. /quick minimizes browser so boss man does not see it.

This has to be in the top 5 (if not number 1) of most expensive single car crashes ever. The guy has a good sense of humor about it which means he has to much money so we are on our way to go steal all of his stuff and then beat him with a pipe wrench for being a dip shit. Now just to be fair if you go frame by frame through the vid you can see him hitting a Pelican and then he drives off the road. He said in an interview that he hit the bird and dropped his phone, then crashed trying to pick up the phone. Sounds like a good enough reason to toss 1.5 million bucks in a lagoon.

CRB Brings the Sexy

Yes...and...Yes. The CRB has already robbed 17 banks getting the money together to buy these houses. I mean look at the girls that come with the homes!! What do you mean the girls don't come with the houses? Oh boy...we have some explaining to do...

Tie Those Skis Together

Little kids rocking the boom! Hellz yea Teaching little kids to ski can be a lot of fun as long as you don't get stuck with the whiny little fat kids that just want to play video games all day while getting diabetes. Those kids could ruin a day at any ski school when you get stuck with one of them, you just want to drown the little bitches. But back to happy time, teaching little kids...hell yea, they get all excited and their faces light up. Its kind of like the feeling us older skiers get when we knock off that difficult pass or stomp some new trick, except they are not all jaded by life. Coaching skiing is probably the best job you can ever have, thats why I sit at a desk and stare at numbers all day. Oh...no thats cuz this job pays money instead of room and board. But fuck it, if you get the chance to go you better get your ass to a ski school and coach, I coached for 4 years and man that ruled. And don't be like some instructors who only do it to get to ski tons o

Vid Day Monday

Direct TV came and asked us if they could film a day in our lives, and this ad is what they ended up with. We are a little disappointed as they totally cut out the parts about our private lake with the retractable roof and midgets with chips and salsa in sombreros. But I guess they wanted to keep it from making the CRB lifestyle look to out of reach for the little people. Whatever! Why should we care about the peons?

Instead of looking for fun waterski vids this morning we have been looking at photos of the disaster in Japan. Here is a video that shows just how powerful water is, some scary shit. If you want to help out text "Redcross" to 90999 to donate $10.

Just Sailing and Dranking

It was announced recently, March 10th to be exact, which would make it really really recent, that US Sailing has signed a sponsorship with Old Pulteney. Old Pulteny is a single-malt scotch that has a boat on its bottles, so, this partnership is a natural. Lace up my top-siders Trade Only Today The sponsorship agreement includes direct financial support for the organization, including support for select US Sailing Adult National Championships and Speaker Series events. Old Pulteney will be present for onshore social events and cocktail receptions during these programs. "We are excited to have Old Pulteney on board with US Sailing," executive director Jack Gierhart said in a statement. "Their support will help us expand our Speaker Series, strengthen our adult championships and enhance the social aspect of these events." *adjusts monocle* I do say chap, this scotch and ice-cube concoction is wonderful, speaking of which, did you see Anderson Von Hammerdriver's

Lake Trout Carry Out

Lake Trout Carry Out is the CRB's version of a link dump. Bunch of articles that we could write about but are to lazy to so we throw them all at you at the same time. Deal with it. We jumped on the Erika Lang bandwagon early on in her rise to fame and her score at the Junior Moomba Masters shows we were right to do so. She outscored 2nd place by over 3600 pts or by about 36 of the CRB minions trick runs. Speaking of the Moomba Masters you can follow them on Twitter here , or check out all of the infos at their website here . Regina Jaquess has been named a AAU James E Sullivan award finalist. I have never paid attention to the Sullivan awards before, but Ive never paid attention to your mom either. The other four finalists are: Evan Lysacek, figure skating; Tahnee Robinson, basketball; DJ Williams, football; and Karrissa Wimberley, baton twirling. ...baton twirling...errrr This article about a guy barefooting at 153 mph behind a helicopte r.

This cool vid comes from the boys at Trophy Lakes in South Carolina. They have a very sweet set up down there. I am a big fan of the new small cameras that have opened up a whole new set of video possibilities. This is Leif Able strapping on the camera and getting his yump on.

CRB Brings the Sexy

We have missed a few months of CRB Brings the Sexy and for that we deeply apologize. And then lay full blame on Hosni Mubarak. Its got to be his fault...and the unions, its their fault as well. To make up for that we bring you Lauryn Eagle and her Australian ski racing hotness.

Bypassing the SkiMasterBu

Image
One of our ongoing jokes around the CRB is that we ski behind the companies SkiMasterBu, which is a mash up of, fairly obviously, a Ski Nautique, Mastercraft and a Malibu, but, this is silly. No, no, we barely ski...its more of a domination of the water when we strap it on.  It took the best of all three companies to make a boat that could handle our awesome.  Wonder why you haven't ever seen CRB at The Masters or Malibu or Moomba? Tell the people who put those tournaments together to make a jump that we won't destroy upon impact, or a slalom course that is at least 90 buoys long, at 95 off at 50 MPH and then maybe.  Otherwise, we will ski in our minds. Never mind that, it doesn't matter, a decent NEW ski boat is now so expensive that most people don't even bother anymore pretending to think they can afford one, buy one, enjoy one, or support them.  And, YO, we want to!!  We have poured over our waterski magazine new boat tester issue like crazy, we love to debate

RAGE

Back in the day there was a team I hung out with once in awhile that would play "Killing in the name of" by Rage Against the Machine. Man it was awesome, bashing around and breaking stuff...then going skiing. That was the life. This is the George Mason pep band rocking out. Sure would have been cool if my college had been good at sports.
