    bit of a chop so i could not superman but when these open up the wake they give us to jump is magic....

    Bl##dy H#ll! I thought Blackpool was a bit rough, but at least we don't get shot at (well not in daylight anyway)! You really shouldn't go chasing the ships with the Jolly Roger, or the Russian flag, flying from the masthead! Come the day we'll be posting stickies on where to best mount the machine gun on a Waverunner!!!

    hi dave ,did think it was funny at time cos would not of felt it unless in the face but then my oakley's would have took a lens hit..
    i think if we messed about in texas that close and every week they would have killed us by now..
    it was a choppy day so wake was broken up but when its calm these tankers put out a perfect 6-7 foot wake you can follow for two miles then race back for the next big one...
    will be out sunday and try to get some good pics of some air if its calm,
    i did read a sticker on my ski saying don't jump wake, but hey what do i know i picked them off..lol..

    can surf them but they roll in 3's and only a boat length apart so its more fun to hit the first at 35 ish and clear them all,if you dont get the speed up and dont clear them all, you go through the second or third and at speed it rips goggles off,opens eye lids and flushes eyes out good, and get in the dry suit through pressure on cuffs and neck...
    no sharks down here dave just a few stray dolphin and seals..
