It seems like every time I write something on here it is about my class. Since I spend almost every waking hour studying and hanging out with them, it has become inevitable that I write about them. This story actually involves wakeboarding though, so I guess I am doing my job.
Our teachers urged us to go to a huge physical therapy conference in San Diego last week. Since we have been freezing our butts off in Sacramento, we made the 7 hour road trip down with the class. We got down to Carlsbad on Tuesday night after taking 2 exams that day. We stayed at my old roommates house (Josh and Dustin Bernard), which my classmates have now deemed the “MTV Cribs house”. New editions to the house included a surfboard shaping room since I left. They already have a skate half pipe that takes up the entire back yard, a ping pong stadium and a custom shuffleboard table. Needless to say, it is the best house ever.
On Wednesday, Liquid Force, the best sponsor and wakeboard company ever, let me take out the company boat. I haven’t gotten to wakeboard since November, so this was amazing. The boat fired up like a champ much to my surprise (anyone who goes to Brostock will know why) and we got our shred on for the entire day. We made some dreams come true that day, including my friend Lisa who never thought she would get up, Tim who landed two perfect backrolls, and Jessica cleared the wake for the first time. We also got to see Josh (also known as Yukon) ride a super old skurfer, which was amazing.
The rest of the trip entails going to a boring conference and then going to some bars, which most people looking at this website don’t really care to much about. Oh yeah, and my other roommate Curtis, aka “party boy”, took my class surfing. Some of them had never been surfing so they really appreciated the wetsuits and surfboards that party boy provided. He has now become a legend in all of our eyes. He is also coming out with a book called, “Pillow Talk”. Look for it on Oprah soon.
What I really took home from this trip is that San Diego is amazing and it needs to be summer soon so I can start wakeboarding every day. Hope you all get some more snowboarding in but I cannot wait until it heats up here in Nor Cal!
