Guilty....though I post here more than I should & itís all pups, cigars and smoker.... Embarassed

Assume everyone is on forums that are more directed to their current lifestyle. Iím ďless than regularĒ on a cigar & hockey forum, but thatís it. Theyíre what Iím into now, I donít wakeboard anymore and even sold my boat a year ago. I sometimes question selling the boat, but I worried about issues with non-use(dryrot on hoses etc). I canít even remember the last time I had the opportunity (time) to get to the lake, though thatís priorities, not so much ability. We have friends with boats that still go regular.

That said, Iíll give a quick update on the pups on the other thread.....😂

I don't think people wakeboard anymore. Smile

I probably saw less than 5 people on a wakeboard all last season at Lake Austin. I am pretty sure the cable parks are dead also. I know a number of them have added bouncy things to try and get more people to come out. I don't see how we can still have wakeboard companies trying to produce highend wakeboard products.

At our river house I still see people wakeboarding every weekend in the summer. However, nobody is throwing down like the older days they are typically older teenagers riding in their parents boats that probably ride 2-3 times a year.

I think forums in general are going away / slowing down. I still roll through here to say hi and poke around.

I didnít have kids either, but I got old (40) and focused more on fishing. I see puddin and Darcizzle have made a cool living/hobby out of it.

PuddinÖ I laugh every time I hear them say that on video.

Looks like they take some great trips. I would love to spend time on a boat in FL.

We still have a decent little scene here in the Houston area. We have two events a year and have 20 - 30 boats show up. I think our wake board club is one of the last ones still going.

I went to the Houston Boat show this year. The cheapest wakeboat I saw was a Moomba for $55,000. The G25 is $200k. I don't see how people can afford that.

I think it is the viglink company that was setup years ago. I guess they have updated the system to include affiliate links to the forum text also? In the past they wrapped the outbound links only. It sure has not changed the amount of revenue I am receiving.. Maybe they are making more money now?

Confused

200k for a boat without a bed(multiple out of the elements), stove/oven & bathroom facilities...that blows my mind.

EDIT-You know what, 100K for a wakeboat blows my mind....
