These days, wakeboard blogs are like assholes: everyone has one and lots of them smell like shit. But the dudes from Shredtown are pretty legit and have been putting out some cool videos over the past few months.

They just put up a new video of full of winching in Dallas and it’s definitely worth a couple viewings. They hit some pretty cool gaps, have a big ol’ time and even get hassled by the man. I think Nick said it best when he said they make it all look really fun. Plus, the music is that song “Huddle Formation” by the Go Team and I’ve always thought that was a hot jam.

So yeah, check them out and leave a comment or something. Cause nothing makes you feel like a bad ass quite as much as when dudes you don’t know leave comments about your videos. The internet is serious business, son.

Do you:

1. Love boats?
2. Get down to some T-Pain?
3. Enjoy gratuitous amounts of profanity?

Well, boy oh boy, are you in luck!

I’m Leaving the CWS

Okay, so after a lot of thinking and speaking with Rob, I wanted to let you guys know that I won’t be working with the CWS anymore.

It’s been four or five pretty awesome years, but all good things must eventually come to an end. As some of you know, I just moved and started a new job and there is so much going on right now that there’s no way I’d be able to give the CWS the same amount of effort and energy that I have in the past. I figured it would be better to just bow out gracefully now than try to make it work and quite possibly end up bailing on Rob halfway through the season.

There’s no drama or hard feelings and I’m sure that Rob will keep putting on awesome contests. As for me, I’ll be learning my way around the wonderful world of insurance here at Lake Norman and hopefully riding every now and then. It’s been rad getting to know all you guys and I hope I’ll be able to make it out to a few contests this summer and see everyone.

Be sure to stay tuned here, though; Nick and I have a few tricks up our sleeves for 2009. Anyway, this is getting a little too cheesy and self-important, so I’m going to leave it at that. Thanks…


PS – I guess Rob is looking for an announcer now, so if any of you have mad flow on the mic and know the tricks, give him a shout.

Winter ’09: Part Two

Posted in Features, Wakeboarding on February 9, 2009 by telepromptedanthems

I realize that this has been a long time coming, but give us a break…it’s winter and we’ve only got so much footy that we have to last us until Spring. Speaking of which, how about this weather? I hope somebody out there on the world wide web got to ride this weekend, because I sure didn’t.

I did make my way over to the boat show here in Charlotte and I must say that need to scrounge up about $92,000 because that Byerly Edition boat that Correct Craft released last year is looking on point.

Anyway, here’s the second part of our epic Winter ’09 mini-series. This episode finds our heroes at the new cable park in Ft. Myers, FL. They try their hand at constructing a seaworthy vessel out of cardboard, then go and tear the rooftop rail to shreds.  Check it out and stay tuned; I’m making a trip down to Wilmington next weekend to edit part three.
