World Records were smashed over the past month at Fluid's Fall tournaments! Firstly, Jacinta Carroll flew 198ft (60.3m) to break the Women's Jump Record by over 4ft on September 27. Two weeks later at the Holy Cow Cup, Anna Gay scored 10610 for a new Women's Trick Record and Aliaksei Zharnasek amassed 12610 for the Men's Trick Record. Unfortunately, Aliaksei's record was not ratified by the IWWF but Anna and Jacinta's performances are now in the record history books. Look for Fluid's 2017 tournament schedule coming out soon to register, compete and break your own records in 2017.
Fluid has hosted 2 record tournaments so far with 2 more on the calendar. As always we watched some great performances with a number of National Records set and a new Asian Jump Record by Jimmy Jeong.

It was a bitter sweet day today as I drove my trusty 2016 Ski Nautique back to the factory after spending almost 1200 hours in it since January. Time to put some hours on the new 2017 Ski Nautique...Masters Blue and Jet Black Metal Flake. Check out www.designyournautique.com to configure the color scheme of your new boat.
We recently had the opportunity to have Kristi Overton-Johnson and "In His Wakes" to Fluid to host one of their "A Day to Remember" Events. What an inspirational day on and off the water.
"A Day to Remember (D2R) provides the opportunity of a lifetime for predominantly at-risk youth by giving them an unforgettable day on the water. Participants engage in water-sports activities such as swimming, boat riding, knee boarding, water-skiing and wake-boarding. These activities break through walls of fear and distrust and low self esteem and expose joy and smiles suppressed by a lifetime of challenges.
For more information check out www.inhiswakes.com
Now retired from water-skiing, Kristi spends her time raising champions off the water through speaking engagements and her magazine, Victorious Living. Click on the magazie cover for this months special water-sports edition.
So cool to check out a video from some of my students this past month or so...good times and great skiing!
