Vid Day Monday

This vid is by the same kid from our last post. If anyone wants to see how to properly use a Go Pro camera watch this. Solid editing skills to go with solid skiing skills.

Vid Day Monday

We have talked about this kid a couple times. He is to tall to be anything but a slalom skier or a crappy basketball player. Good thing hes a slalomer...

Vid Day Monday

How has it taken us this long to find these vids? And less then 1000 views? This kids got vid making skills. And solid skiing vids it would seem.

If you people would stop screwing around and start sending us piles of cash we could retire to somewhere crazy sweet like Hawaii, where even the rain is amazing.

Wake surfing is awesome when your down for something different on the lake. The wakes you throw across the lake are a pain in the ass for other skiers but screw those people, I AM THE ONLY PERSON THAT MATTERS!! But with that said, wake surfing is a blast, if you have not tried it bust out a board, dump a ton of weight in one corner of the back of your boat and tear it up.

Note to wake surfers: Please don't go to the one calm bay on a public lake and screw it up for everyone else. You just look like a dick when you do that.

This guy has guts or hes an idiot that will get eaten by a polar bear some day. Either way this is pretty cool.

Flips Are More Fun on Two Skis (14 pics)

We saw a few of wake ski guys at the LA Night Jam last year and good lord are they awesome.  They throw flips and spins off the ramp that few if anyone ever has thrown on traditional freestyle jump skis.  I have taken a few sets on wake skis myself, and I would have to say I am the best* ever.

*At least better then people that have never been on water skis.

Vid Day Monday - Hologram Edition

Tupac was shot on September 7th 1996 and died 6 days later. But he made his triumphant return at coachella last week...in hologram form. I am not a fan of his music but this is really cool.

Vid Day Monday

We go back to Mandurah for the Tricks comp. Conditions were a rough but the crowd is good and the skiing is still awesome.

Vid Day Monday

ODBF wrote a short rant about this event, and besides the conditions being less then private lake perfect* it looked like a well done event. We were not there so we do not know first hand.

*it was very rough

Boat Stands Rule

As ski boat technology improved we say the introduction of the inboard boat. For years inboards and outboards both roamed the realm of water skiers. Even into the 90s you would often see outboard Mastercrafts and Flight Crafts pulling tournament level skiers. Flight craft was killed off by Malibu and Mastercraft ended the Barefoot 200 in 96. Thus came an end to the era of 3 event skiers being able to jump the shit out of their boats like crazy people. Show skiers are not nearly as picky as 3 eventers it seems. The following vids show how fucking awesome Hydrodynes are for doing boat stands. Not talking about the old inboard hydrodynes from the early 90s...but the light front end over powered outboard dynes.

Probably not a smart way to dismount a wakeboard...but it turns out well.

Vid Day Monday - Wakeboard Go Pro

No idea if we have posted this before, but, its too cool not to.  The advent of the go pro style cameras is fantastic, from the video of Freddy with a go pro mounted backwards (link), its a pretty cool time for self-produced videos.  Instead of the shitty shaky cam camcorder stuff, we have some high quality awesome.

Yep, a go pro on a stick.  That works!

Vid Day Monday

We here at the CRB have shown our love for Go Pro cameras many times over and here is another sweet vid. Plus the guys name is awesome.

I am in the 99th percentile* of all dancers in the world and this guy is the tops. Looks insane but dances like crazy. Plus he does standing back flips which are just sweet in general.

*the bottom 99%, I suck at dancing. Honestly I may be the worst dancer ever, I should just kill myself.

F**k Cancer!

The CRB lost a big influence in our lives to cancer late last year so this is a cause we can really get behind. And yes this is ODBF being serious right now. So hit up this link and get over to SkierPalooza's website and drop a few bucks to help fight cancer.

Time for us to make some shirts (5 pics 1 poll)

Well we said we would make shirts and send one to the winner of the CRB Domination NCAA Pool and as the best a CRB member did was second we actually have to follow through and make the shirts. Here are a few ideas, pick one of ours or make your own and send it over to us at Creakyrowboat at Gmail dot com

There is a poll at the bottom of the page after the jump. Let us know what you think! Vote bitchez!

Vid Day Monday

This is the Wake and Flake cable wake board event that was held at Trophy Lakes a couple weeks ago. There is something at this event that you don't see at 90% of water ski events...FUN!!! The reason the LA Night Jam is a ton of fun is because they show awesome skiing, have lots of booze and music. Most events are boring, its slalom for 6 hours and then some poorly announced jump. We will never rival wake boarding for sponsor dollars if that is our approach.

Vid Day Monday

We here at the CRB say things like "Hit it" then 10 seconds latter we say "AHHHHHHH**gurgle**" then "take me to the hospital I broke my liver". But you know, to each his own.

Vid Day Monday

A trip to a ski school for spring break is about 147,000% more fun then going to one of the standard spring break spots. I pity the fool that went to Panama City Beach or Cancun instead of Bennetts, Cobles, McCormicks or any other school. So if you are one of those poor misguided fools you deserve to a punch in the face from my foot. Does that sentence make sense? NO NEITHER DID YOUR SPRING BREAK LOCATION!!!

This Go Pro vid was sent in by a member of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee ski team. It has almost everything; slalom, jump, barefoot, twin tip jumping, slalom jumping... Wheres the tricks bro?

Cabins Are The Best

We were going to win the Mega Millions Lottery but The Rowboat Abides used all the lottery money to buy more depends instead of lottery tickets.  We hate him now.

Lots more cabins after the jump.
