Looks like Dallas friday is back on track, although Emily Copeland-Durham won the women's division of the Master's this weekend in Pine Mountain, GA. Friday was a close second though … Phillip Soven is on a contest tear — he's three for three this year after winning at the Master's on Sunday … Jimmy Lariche took the Junior Men's for the second year in a row.
I'm sure if you've been online you've seen the story about the defensive lineman for the New England Patriots who drowned in Lake Ponchatrain over the weekend — 24, world class athlete, no life jacket, fell off a jet ski … a jet ski. So the life jacket thing is really getting stupid now. There's still some pro wakeboarders that don't wear them when they're freeriding, which seems really strange at this point. Either wakeboarding is really dangerous and extreme and they should wear one because of that, or it's not dangerous and extreme and they should realize the potential for an accident and a really lame story about how they died.
