  • The fun part about doing tow-ins on a wake board is the challenge of all the variables.

  • There's so many things that have to line up perfectly for you to be able to get the right

  • wind, get the right speed, hit the lip just at the right time, air, and then land back

  • in the wave. But when you get it, the feeling that you get is just like nothing else. Shane's

  • waves are crazy, some of his first ones, he would just come in so fast, with so much speed

  • on his tow side, and then there was this one time just like, gapped this little section

  • and dropped back in, pumped the wave a couple of times, got a little barrel, came back out,

  • and just to see like the speed was just amazing. That was sick, man. That second wave was so

  • big, I was scared. Danny was with me and that thing was over my head. I have never been

  • on a wave over my head on my wakeboard before. Having a good ski driver in the surf is crucial.

  • You definitely need somebody that has knowledge of how a wave works, and where to put the

  • rider. I've definitely been out a few times and you're kind of yelling back and forth

  • with the driver, like "put me there, I want to be there." But really, there's just like,

  • such miscommunication, but once you kind of get it to click, it works. When we first started

  • and I whipped Danny in, like the first wave, I kind of didn't put him in the right spot,

  • and then he's like, you know, "put me here," so the next few waves, just put him in the

  • right spot. Then you get out there and you have someone else drive, it's just, sometimes

  • it just takes a while to make things work, but when you make it work, and it clicks,

  • things happen. When the waves die down a little bit in Ballina, we decided to just mess around

  • and decided to ride behind the truck a little bit. Yeah, dude, Danny just came up with a

  • sick idea. I think this is kind of the perfect set up for it. We're going to rally the truck

  • down the beach and just carve in the shore break. At the end of the day, we got some

  • pretty rad stuff, stuff that's never been done on wakeboards before, so it was a really

  • inspiring trip, and a lot of fun.
