Fun in the Sun

2 less wakeboarding virgins in the world....

After all the times I followed my friend Fai to Carasol Wakeboarding in Puchong just to sunbathe (like a beached whale),.... I finally got around to trying it out! :)

A beautiful sunny day:
Sunblock is essential unless you want to be a red hot lobster, or chao tar (burnt dry) piece of toast later! :)
Sunshine and happiness...

The boys aboard the speedboat:
My hot friends on the boat...

Fai shows off:
(IT WAS LIKE HE WAS FLYING!)
Stop making it look so easy, Fai!! O_O...

Now it's Ruben's turn:
Ruben's first time...

Wah. Very good!:
(He was up and zipping around in no time at all)
(Look at him go! So gaya, right?)
Zoom zoom - ex-Cleo bachelor leh. Don't play-play...

*Gulp* My turn:
(J's thought at the time: "OMG.OMG.OMG.OMG. What have I gotten myself into??")
J's heart goes *dubDUBdubDUBdubDUB* at an alarming speed...

*JOY / PANIC*
Look at me mum! I can wakeboard! (sort of)...

Anyway, later on, despite me not being able to feel my forearms and fingers and thighs (it's tiring to wakeboard!), I ended up trying a "trick" because of cheeky Fai and Aaron.

I present to you - The dangers of listening to people egg you on, a 3 part story:
1) Taking up the challenge:
(I was like - "Ok, ok. Stop heckling me! I'll try it lah...")
Preparing myself...

2) OMG! Can it be? - Success?? :D
Wheeeeeeeeeeeee...

3) Erm. Maybe not:
*SPLASH!*...

So, the conclusion is:
Was it expensive?
Yes loh... At >RM 200 per hour, it's not the kind of activity that I can afford to go for as often as I'd like to....
(Mind you, it's not that Aaron charges some astronomical rate because he feels like it! It's just an expensive sport due to the high costs involved - the boat+it's maintainance+the petrol needed to zoom around+equipment, etc)

Was it fun?
Yes yes YES! :) :) :)
(And such a good workout too!)

For more information, please check out their Official Website... or join their Facebook Group!. Alternatively, just call Aaron at +6012-3246677.

Lastly, shout out time:
- to FAI:
Thanks for convincing me to try wakeboarding! It was so much more fun than I imagined it would be... And I forgive you for thinking (beforehand) that I would be a disaster at it. :P
(YOU MEANIE! I am not so "princess", ok? I go gym and play sports waaaan....)
- to AARON:
Thanks man! - You were so patient with us newbies and your pointers were fairly easy to understand and pick up*. :)
(*If only my arms/ legs hadn't gotten tired so easily - it was like after a while, they just didn't want to listen to what my brain was trying to tell them! Haha.....)
- to RUBEN:
Hope you had lots of fun that day as a fellow wakeboard virgin. Hopefully we can go again soon!

Ok. That's all. :)


Signing off,
J
