Just got a text message from my West Coast brosef Derek Cook who is in Orlando for the winter:

"Dude, free pancakes at IHOP all day. Wanna go? There are 10 in the Orlando area. I'm going for all 10. No joke."

Some things get wakeboarders more motivated than others: learning a new trick, flat water, a camera, helicopter, etc. For Cook, though, this just happens to be a buttery breakfast batter. So if you happen to frequent one of the 10 IHOP establishments around the greater Orlando area and you run into him, now you know why.
