Step Into Ripple

The Hawaii and Mavericks crews have been hounding Leah for some time about us all getting out to Belews Lake to share tow in techniques but Leah's schedule is prohibitive.  Imagine- the biggest and smallest wave surfers in the world getting together to show that it is all about making the most of what you have.  Laird we'll make it work eventually.

Leah learned short board wake surfing faster than I did when we first tried it with our friends Joe and Jennifer.  Adding the paddle gets you through chop from lots of summer boat traffic. 

The wave maker.  A 14' fiberglass tri hull with 40hp Suzuki.

The poor man's fat sack.  5 gallon water container.  We don't have to have it to surf but hey it also makes a nice cushion when the board is tight in the pocket.


  1. Yes she does! Like falling off a log man. Just tow in, toss the rope, surf. The bigger the boat wake the easier it is.
