We screwed up!

Authors: Flyboy Wakesurf

DAMN! We screwed up and we are winding up being THAT GUY!

homer-doh

So we’re trying to clean up our doo doo. 

A few months ago we renewed a license agreement with Inland for the exclusive use of the Flyboy mark.  That means we can’t use it!  Well until the term of that agreement is over  We thought it was over, because they had sold all of the boards for 2015 to BoardCo, but apparently that sale hasn’t fully taken place.

A few days ago we think Inland told us they don’t want us promoting/using the Flyboy name. We talked with our attorney, when he returned, and he said don’t use anything Flyboy until after the term of the license agreement.  So we still own it, but we can’t really use our facebook page or the website or any of the other social media associated with that name. 

We apologize, but we are going to be deleting posts and videos from the point of notification thru yesterday, it’ll just take us a day or so to manage it all.

If you want any info on the Flyboy or Big Boy, please refer to http://inlandsurfer.com

If you are interested in the 2015 Inland Surfer Flyboy products, please refer to the sole source of those products for 2015: http://boardco.com

Thanks so much we really have appreciated you following us and being able to share with you over this last several years. May God bless and keep you and your family safe and happy.

End of the season

Authors: Flyboy Wakesurf

So we took the boat out for one last hurrah over the weekend. That pretty much marks the end of our 2014 boating season and probably thru early spring 2015. It was sad to sort of sad goodbye to our lake for the season, but luckily we now have snow! To be honest, since the water level in our lake is so low, they’ve pulled the docks. So we’ve had to wade out to the boat after launching and parking the truck and trailer, and boating lost some of it’s appeal during that walk! Damn that walk was cold!

It’s a little tough to see in this picture, but what’s missing is the DOCK, which is sitting on the ground at the top of the ramp!!

Have you already put your boat away for the winter? Our Missing Summer Series hoped to relieve some of that pain for you! We got a chance to sort of reflect on a number of things this last trip and one of them was how much fun we’ve had on various boats for so many years. We recounted coming to New Hogan since 1997, so over 17 years for us. Our poor lake has been a victim of this latest drought here in California. It’s fed only by rain water and the rangers indicate it would take 5 years of back-to-back average rainfall to fill it back up. As it is right now, the water is below most of the ramps, so it’s not likely that it will be usable by most this coming summer. BUT, we are getting some good rain of late, we’ll keep our fingers crossed that it stays that way.

One of the things we enjoyed is James’ dog Cooper, out on the water. He didn’t like to swim, in fact was afraid of the water and we had to teach him how to swim over this past summer. He still won’t go in the water off the boat, but at least we know he CAN swim! This is a silly picture of Cooper sitting on the observers seat, but check his rear legs hanging in the air, like a little kid in a chair that’s too big for them.

As a family we’ve spent many hours and amazing days on the water. Over the a LOT of stuff has happened, but in the end all that shit doesn’t matter. Emotionally disturbed people are just part of life and once you know how screwed up they are, get away! Run as fast as you can! Thankfully, family…blood is strong and we work through things. Not that it’s always amazing and warm and fuzzy, be we want to a family and strive to be respectful and loving towards each other. Being on the boat, this last weekend of our 2014 season reminded us of what is important and what isn’t.

It’s not easy to maintain a family, the relationships in them are complex and sometimes at odds. You know what? There just isn’t anything more important. We sort of were flooded with the 17 years of good times we spent boating, while we were out freezing on the lake. Fishing, swimming, tubing, wakeboarding and finally wakesurfing. We recounted the very first directional wakeboard we had, before we knew anything about the sport. It was crazy big, something like 163 cm and James sort of learned on that at around 6 years old. He popped easy enough, but the bindings were so far apart he almost had to squat to stay upright! Good times, wonderful family moments and a reminder of what we value in this life. What we value in others.

Family will support you, tell you that you can do what you plan and be successful. Bullies and piss ants will tell you that you can’t and shouldn’t.

So good bye New Hogan, for 2014. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the winter is bountiful in terms of rain and water and that we’ll be back in Spring, to enjoy a dock and some more boating!

We hope that your life is filled with folks that are important to you, not self-important folks. That your family is near and dear and that you too have spent countless days out on the water with them.

Thanks so much for following along, we really appreciate you.

Too Much! – Episode 10 of our Missing Summer Series

Authors: Flyboy Wakesurf

Welcome to Episode 10 of the MSS. We call this one Too Much!

DSC01333

There is a fun backstory. It was a typical warm summer day and we’re out for a normal session, but this day we were having trouble with the wake. It was bad, but it was really steep and it kept changing. We figured we had balalst issues or maybe the trim tab was broken or something. Then we opened the off side hatch and saw the ballast bag was about 40% full! We still laugh about that to this day.

For our mobile enabled friends, here is a link to that Too Much video if the embed above doesn’t work for you.

Thanks so much for watching, we hope you’re thinking about summer out on your boat!
