Here is one of my attempts at a back roll. I am getting close to landing them! I ifigure I will get it this next weekend!!

The jump and rotation are looking good,


but I am hating the landings. These are my first attempts, maybe this weekend will do it.

umm... all i see is a black box :?

06-27-2007, 10:06 PM
Did the pictures come through in the previous post?

06-28-2007, 07:22 AM
What speed are you trying that at? You def don't want to casing the wake.

06-28-2007, 03:23 PM
Speed was 21 MPH according to PP which I think is 22 according to the GPS. Front ballast was full as well as both of the 400 lbs bags in the rear. I think I cased the wake 2 really good times! Hopefully this weekend will go better!! I will try to get some pics of the tantrum and front rolls as well.

06-29-2007, 04:22 AM
When you edge to the wake, stand tall and pull the rope down to your lead hip. That'll help your pop and rotation.

Spike... Heres my addition of a beautiful day at Bullards Bar in California :D


07-06-2007, 02:31 AM
Ok who is "Spike" and OH MY GOD that water is beautiful!! I have crappy green water at my local lake. Where is that lake? Thanks...nice pic

07-06-2007, 03:34 AM

Sorry man! :oops: One to many crashes has prompted me to put a "silent S" in the strangest places.

Bullards Bar Reservoir is located in Dobins Ca. near Nevada City Ca. The water is like bath water and there are a number of fingers to seclude yourself for some prime boardin. If you find yourself in that neck of the woods, here is the website http://bullardsbar.com/ They have some great boat camping and full marina services. Worth the trip. We've day tripped it a couple of times this year from Reno Nv. already.......Shaved sweet warm butter in the morning til about 10:45 then headed for the fingers.

Worth a weekend trip.

07-06-2007, 10:05 AM
Bulldgz, you are not allowed to post any more pictures, unless you find some nasty mud puddle to go wakeboarding in!! :D My wife looked at that pic and asked why our lake does not look like yours. I explained to her that that is the difference between wakeboarding in a river versus a reservoir. Great pic, what speed and ballast rate are you running?

07-06-2007, 01:52 PM

We do have some beautiful waterways out this direction. If you ever have a chance for a trip you won't be sorry. We tried Tahoe a couple weeks ago, Nearly stopped my heart the water was so cold. We may have to try it agian this weekend since we've had temperatures steady from 102 to yesterdays record matching 108. Maybe tahoe has warmed up a touch.

Towing: the wife is towing me right around 23/25mph. I'm 6'-1 apprx 215 so the little extra speed helps with the pop. I just bought the boat this year and got hooked on wakeboardin'
Ballast: I have a sac in the center ski locker filled and a large plastic rear container filled that actually acts as the rear seat. I've looked on the sac & container and haven't found any capacity markings yet, so I am unsure of the actual weights. Short of doing it the caveman way of filling it and emptying it into a gallon container. I'm unsure. I posted a picture or two. Maybe someone out there will know exactly what I have for ballast so I don't have to strain the brain to calculate the capacity by measurements :mrgreen:

2003 Moomba Mobius

Plastic container measures apprx 72x21x9 (slightly beveled)


Fat sac Measures apprx 72x16x8 (slightly rounded)


07-06-2007, 02:41 PM
did you put the container in the boat yourself or did it come that way. I really like that idea! If you did do it yourself, where did the container come from and what was the price.

Here are my rough calculations on your container.

72" X 21" x 9" = 13,608 cubic inches.
13, 608 cubic inches = 7.875 cubic feet
1 cubit foot of water = 62.31lbs
7.875 cubic feet multiplied by 62.31 lbs = 490.7 total pounds.

1 gallon of water = 8.33 lbs
490.7 lbs divided by 8.33 = close to 60 gallons! You are going to need a lot of buckets!!!

Including the material I would guess that you have around 500 lbs of ballast in that tank alone. Someone corerct my math if you see an error please.

P.S. I am still mad at you for the clear blue water picture! I bet the face plants taste better where you are riding. :lol:

07-06-2007, 03:56 PM

When I bought the boat used (it only had 69 hours on it) a couple of months ago this is how it came. I am guessing that this is how it left the manufacturer. You may be able to send the previous photo to skiers choice to see if it is an option.

I'm guessing if your calculations are correct the Mid compartment Sac (using your calcs) would have apprx330lbs

Thanks for figuring that out for me. I'll see what I can find out on the rear conatiner for you. :D

I just remeasured the aft tank with more accuracy 70x 20.5 x9 I'm guessing with the bevel and notches and tank tubes its more like a 450lb

Here is a photo what it looks like when the seat is back in place.


07-06-2007, 03:57 PM
I definately need that container for my boat I want to run ballast in the rear but dont want to sacrafice any space. Let me know where you got that

07-06-2007, 04:01 PM
It seems like most of the boats came with 950 total lbs in their ballast. My LSV came with two 250s in the rear (which I swapped to twin 400lbs bags) and a 450 in the locker. I would bet that your rear tanks is 500 lbs and the locker is 450 lbs. It seems like I remember hearing that a while back. I am sure that someone will give the correct info.

07-06-2007, 04:23 PM
Looks like a fresh water tank for a motor home. They make them all different sizes. The trick would be to get the tank with inlet and outlet orifices in a location out of the way and accessable. I've attached one example website.


07-07-2007, 11:36 AM
I used the more conservative 71x20x8 for the plastic container - inside measurements vs outside. came up with ~409 lbs of water filled.

Simplest formula: cubic inches x .0036
= lbs of water.


07-28-2007, 12:21 AM
Couple from this weekend... Nothing dramatic, no shots of 3s or tantrums, I can't land them with enough regularity to catch them with digi cam.

Here is one from last weekend. Backrolls in front of the trestle!


07-29-2007, 12:48 AM
that container is identical to the gas tank in the Outbacks, or at least it looks identical. I've pulled up the floor in the rear storage on mine and exposed the tank, that's what it looks like.

Here's a couple pics of my buddy Whitie, yes we really call him that. He throws down.

Here is a pic of me from a year ago. I just came off of a serious shoulder repair so still a little timid on the water. 9 anchors put in place during a bankhart slap repair. Thanks to the back roll I dislocated my shoulder for the first time 3 years ago. 3 season and well over 50 dislocations later I finially got it fixed. If you don't want to throw your shoulder out while learning this move be sure to keep both hands on the handle as you land. I was taking my back hand off the handle and placing it low behind me almost in the water as I was learning this trick. During the learning process I was trying to force the rotation by basically hucking the move and over rotating. If you have the right pop off the wake just turn your head and the rotation will come naturally. I've got the back roll down perfect now. I can land tantrums 75% of the time and am now working on the scarecrow.

Heres some pics of my accident before and after

08-26-2007, 09:20 PM
Bob, no, it's a lake in Ocala. I used to go to FSU and played lacrosse there... But still go to some football games!

09-29-2007, 10:51 AM
Limishowman3 How did you do that??? Wow, looks painful.
That's why we wear helmets when wakeboarding!

12-19-2007, 12:24 AM
Wow that does look painful but take heart I am going to show it to my 8 and 10 year olds. I bought them helmets to wear this summer and they are fighting it! Now I have some ammunition! They like to knee board at the same time and they come mighty close to smacking each other so I decided they needed some protection.

We call it convict res. ha ha .. Its close...

Thats gotta be tough, I mean I'm sure jail and or prison is tough....but to see a bunch of people on a river wakeboarding just outside the walls?!!!! Now that is the ultimate prison :?

03-22-2008, 06:54 AM

03-22-2008, 09:57 PM
Ya know that probably is tough for them watching us, surf'n , board'n drinkinig cold beers with women in bikinis & then going home...Can't say I'm sorry for them.

What is a double up?

WOW, that is a lot of air.... and a lot of slack in the rope.

Did he land that?


03-22-2008, 11:33 PM
There’s a Women’s federal prison on Lake Worth that resembles these pics very much!!! We have to drive next to these buildings when going to inspect our intake structure on the lake. I never heard a sailor curse as bad as these women!!! I was also so skeereded when we drove by. They were saying they wanted to do things to us that made me go home and lay in a fetal position all night!!! I was skeerd!

03-23-2008, 12:25 PM
What is a double up?

This is from wakeworld:

Q. I keep seeing people say "Double-up " and I am not quite sure what that is... Can someone describe it?

A. The double up is when the boat driver makes a wide turn and circles back around into the wake at a 90 degree angle. When the old wake meets the new wake, the wake becomes twice as large, thus the name double up. The rider should try to time the spot when the wakes meet and jump off that spot. It is a great way to get a lot of air and try new tricks.

Found this on you tube, thoght this was creative "Urban wake Ski"


Don't try tis at home!!! :shock:
