    Cool shots Rex, even while traveling only 5 mph, I still have no idea how they stay up.

    Thanks for looking,Gale and Frank. They love doing anything on the water. They fill plastic bags, called fat sacks, with water. A total of 1500-2000 lbs. Have all their friends get on the back edge of the boat to create a bigger wake.

    Notice Caleb on the left. He has a rope hooked to the tower and is leaning out from the boat. Trying to make the wake better.

    That's true, Joe. Sometimes they just slow down and surf onto the back of the boat.

    Nice photos,
    but I think they need to ad some more speed to get a bit more excitement in to the pictures.
    It would be a bit more interesting for you also I think.
