Wakeboarding & Minnesota Summers

Filed under: Random — Robert John Ed @ 4:32 pm

For the first time in about four years, I was treated to a wakeboarding expedition on Forest Lake with a few coworkers. The guy with the lake lot owns a Malibu boat, I didn’t ask which model, but it was NICE. It had a full ballast system and the wake was the biggest I’ve yet seen or ridden.

As a youth, my bread and butter consisted of videogames and wakeboarding (kneeboarding initially evolved into it, never learned how to ski). Videogames just aren’t that interesting to me anymore. I don’t know when it happened, but it now feels like a large waste of time. Nothing really comes out of it. I still dig playing coops and Street Fighter 4, but can’t get down with most everything else. Case in point: I’ve had Resident Evil 5 for months and haven’t attempted passing the second stage. That is one of the best games on earth and I can’t seem to muster enough time and energy to enjoy it properly. Wack, eh?

Wakeboarding the other day was nothing like it. The rush and enjoyment I get out of being on the lake in the sunshine knows no bounds. It’s my youth. And now I’m feverishly day dreaming about getting a Super Air Nautique 230. Soon. Before a house. That’s very likely a poor financial decision, all things considered. But I don’t care. BTW the difference between an average boat and a nicer wakeboarding boat is absolutely immense. With enough time and inherent talent on a good/great rig, many people could be doing the same tricks pros do. Plus, it’s luxurious. Huge motors and sound systems mixed with comfortable seating for eight people equals good times.

People that don’t get a chance to be out on the lakes during Minnesota summers are missing the boat. Yeah. It’s the absolute best thing about living here. And I intend to spend my aging years tugging around friends on Lake Ida and eventually some spot closer to the Minneapolis area.
