Adrenalina

Aubrey's friend had a birthday party last week at Adrenalina. Its basically this surf/skate shop with an indoor "flowrider"(surf simulator type thing). I wasn't sure if Aubrey would do it, but she did! And she did so awesome boogieboarding on the wave! We were really proud of her! Heck, I don't think I'd do it:) Check out the video to see her in action.

Who also decided to try it out that day was my main man Joey. As most of you know he was a big California surfer dude back in the day(and can still rock a wave:) so he thought it would be a little different his first try on the board....I've watched this a million times and it never gets old...

Ouch is right. But I still laughed(and laughed and laughed...after of course I made sure he was okay:) He wasn't sure he wanted me to post this- I had to get special permission and basically beg! He is the type of guy who loves to watch other people fall off stuff and get thrown around(America's Funniest Videos being one of his favorite shows) so I told him he should let us all laugh at his expense too:) Thanks Joey for being a good sport and letting me post one of your thrashings! I love you!

Oh, and here is a video of when he was getting the hang of it. He said this was nothing like surfing. He said its like standing on a skateboard(with no wheels) behind a speedboat holding onto nothing. Yeah, I'm glad I didn't try it:) Now, THAT would have been really hilarious. I would be the $100,000 winner on AFV.

Looks so good Aubrey you did great we are impressed and that looks like a fun place to have a birthday party for sure. The first video of Joey isn't working on my Laptop might be me the second one of him and the one of Aubrey both work. I think the length of it has a lot to do with the ride longer would be so much better maybe. I hear they have something similar to that like on cruise ships. Ah yeah I'd be video taping no wanting to check out here..........glad you got it on film hey maybe you could make some bucks on his video.

Ouch! That looked painful! I know I'll never be attempting that, EVER. Talk about a head/neck injury...

and I thought we Californians had an edge on surfing..... I guess not... you Texans are darn good!

Better than I could do.
