  1. Being a pro is more than just being good at the sport. A pro has decided the sport is what they want to do with their life. They compete, teach, do videos, demo and sell product etc. for as long as they can get away with it.

  2. Is anyone else afraid everytime he falls that the handle will get caught on either him or the board?

  3. @haole2u2 There are two public marinas on the lake, not sure exactly where they are or what it costs. Have fun.

  4. yo yo yo. i was wondering if any mahopac locals could tell me if anyone is allowed to bring their boat on the lake. holler.

  5. @btenn714 Far as I know, it was a one-time camp. I'll forward your comment to Mike, but he's a dad now so he may not have the time to do it again.

  6. @579aggresive i don't remember exactly. they kept shortening the rope as they got more attuned to the boat and conditions. i think they were going between 17 and 22 mph, but i may have that wrong.

  7. @flowbro23 Me personally, nooo. I just make the videos. The camp was a one time thing, next time I talk to them I'll ask if they can use one. Wish there was more wakeboarding around my way, I'd like to do another vid. Subscribe if you like our stuff, it all helps. Thx.

  8. @ineedajob555 It was a hoot, even at 7:30 in the morning. Sub the channel if you like, I'd appreciate it.

  9. for people who are trying to land this trick do it only 1 wake really small then go bigger it is safer and you don't feel as if you will faceplant. once you get more confidence go bigger

  10. Hey, Im 18 and we have a place on Raquette Lake, NY. we have a boat but no tower, i can currently land a 360, 180's and grabs, my goal is a tantrum by next summer, almost had it last summer but not gettin enough height without the tower. How much do you charge for the camp and how do you sign up? I seriously need a tower and coaching. Hope to hear back. Thanks

  11. @hampsted42 I try to avoid using trick names that are non-descriptive. Especially in a video like this where pros are teaching tricks, the name is less important than the technique. It's funny that nobody on the boat or who looked at the video mentioned that it's called it a tantrum. Now that I know, I'll use it next time. Thanks.

  12. awesome! some mad wakeboarding skills – inspired me and my brother to push ourselves more!… and 0:52 = kevin mcloud and hugh grant:)
