Happy Groundhog Day

I know it’s hard to believe, but there’s just not much wakeboarding going on around here lately. There are a few crazy kids out there, but for the most part, we’re just biding our time for Spring. Luckily for us, that rodent in Pennsylvania says that Spring is right around the corner. Usually, I wouldn’t take meteorological advice from an oversized rat, but I’m going to make an exception in this case because I really want it to to be true. Don’t let me down, Phil.

In more wake-related news, our good buddies at Slingshot recently announced two new additions to the family: they just signed Oli Derome and Keith Lyman to the global team. Oli’s been a top ten contender on the tour for a while now and Lyman’s reputation definitely speaks for itself. Big congrats to those guys and to Slingshot; hopefully Oli will get SS on some podiums this season and Keith will disprove some of those “you-can’t-go-as-big-on flex-boards” rumors that pop up from time to time. No matter what happens, I’m predicting massive sales of SS’s new Ballistic Series…and you know where you can get your hands on one

And finally, everybody wish a happy belated birthday to our very own Nick Joseph. There was a massive throwdown at Mark’s house on Saturday night, which I was unable to attend due to prior obligations. Judging from the voice mail I got from Matt Schrier (at 10:00 no less), it sounded like a large time was had. Happy birthday, buddy…
