  • Ask The Experts | Go Inverted... On Purpose

    Ask The Experts | Go Inverted... On Purpose

    Over the past couple months we've looked at jumps and spins. They help get you set up for going inverted. Yes, you can go upside down when just fooling around and crashing, but to be the champion on your lake, you need to do it well and really stick the landings.
    Doing an invert on a board is a blast. This is really where your groundwork in becoming a strong wake jumper will pay off. That's because the wake jump -- knowing how to easily jump the wakes -- is the core of the invert. ...

  • Let's Get Cook'n! | Sriracha Shrimp Skewers

    Let's Get Cook'n! | Sriracha Shrimp Skewers

    Grilling on board really is quick, and easy with a Kuuma grill. This month's recipe is great with Shrimp or Grouper.



    1/2 Cup Butter (or more, depending on how much food and how many friends)
    2 tbsp finely chopped onion
    2 tsp Old Bay
    1/2 tsp Garlic Powder (see below note for clove use)
    2 tbsp Sriracha*




    This recipe is spicy. For less spicy, dial back the Sriracha to 1 tablespoon - or, as I did with one shrimp...

    Ask the Experts | "Knots" And We Don't Mean Speed

    If you spend a little time in docking areas, you'll be able to identify the novice boaters from the experienced just by watching how they tie up their boat. When you see a shiny new boat pull up to the dock and someone on board throw a few granny knots around a cleat or piling to secure it, there's a good chance you are observing a new boater in action. Watching someone else struggle to untie their boat because they used an incorrect knot to secure it is another identifier. While most boating courses...

    Ask the Experts | Big Air Time

    OK, it's time to get more air.



    Wakeboarding is not about doing a trick on the water, but rather it's about getting air and doing a trick like a grab, spin, invert, or a combination of an invert, spin, or grab. That's the fun of wakeboarding.

    Most riders know that the more air time the easier it is to throw in a trick. More air time also lets you develop your own personal style. The more you can stay in the air, the more tricks you can add. Going big...

    Ask the Experts | Four Cycle Oil Improvements

    With the takeover of four cycle/four stroke outboards the use of top quality oil to lubricate and protect your engine is more important than ever.



    Stern drive powered boats have used modified (gasoline or diesel automotive engines, gasoline engines being four cycle) since their inception.
