Getting Rowdy in Bladen County
I’m slacking big time on this one, but I just sat down to capture the footage from our trip to White Lake weekend before last. Nearly a dozen of us invaded my Mom’s house for the weekend and a bank rail was built next to my dock. Matt Schrier brought down a kicker, which was also set up next to the dock and before we knew what was happening, a bunch of people had come over and there was a massive wakeboarding bro-down at my house on Saturday afternoon. The highlights of the evening came when Connor landed a 540 off the kicker, which was then followed up by Schrier landing his first 180 off the kicker. Everyone on the dock was going apeshit and some of my neighbors were even getting into it and cheering whenever something was landed. It was honest to God the most fun I’ve had wakeboarding in years, and I didn’t even get in the water.
I also have to give it up to Mark Rugala, who hands down wins the MVP of the trip. The guy went to White Lake to get some work done; he spent the entire weekend with either a handle, a drill, or a beer in his hand. So good job, Mark; we salute you. If you want to let Mark know how awesome he his, you should follow him on the Twitter page that Schrier created for him over the weekend. Check him out: @dillion00fmx.
All in all, it was a solid weekend. We had a blast, a bunch of good wakeboarding went down, and a whole new boatload of people have been introduced to the greatness that is Pole Golf.
