Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing techniques.
The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 30–50 km/h, depending on the board size, rider's weight, type of tricks, and rider's comfort speed. This speed could also depend on the year, make, and model of the boat because some boats, which are not designed for wakeboarding, create a different size wake which the rider may not feel comfortable with.
A wakeboarder can also be towed by other means, including closed-course cable systems, winches, personal water craft, trucks/cars, and all-terrain vehicles.
The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus, or the wild horse. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae.
Scientific name: Equus ferus caballus
Higher classification: Wild Horse

Kicking It In The HotTug! A Hot Tub Boat From Hammacher Schlemmer. While the HotTug, a Dutch, wood-fired tug boat with a built-in hot tub, is cozy and quaint-looking, it defies American protocol by not being the size and price of a luxury SUV.
Thankfully, Hammacher Schlemmer recognized these unfortunate discrepancies, and got to work hunting down a vessel more representative of the inordinately wealthy people who would be using it.
Success struck in Seattle, WA - a city with a rich nautical history, and a nouveau riche demographical present--in the form of the 16' Hot Tub Boat.
A marine carpenter specializing in custom houseboat design engineered the floating jacuzzi with a Vinylester hull, slatted African teak deck, and 24-volt electric motor.
Hot tub dimensions are 8' long x 4' wide x 2' deep, accommodating up to 6 adults and a total weight (with water) of 2,100 pounds.
An integrated diesel-powered boiler heats and bubbles the tub to a maximum 104 degrees F, which is hopefully just below the temperature at which the bather sitting closest to the boat's joystick steering mechanism transitions from cognizant and able to avoid oncoming watercraft, to totally Zenned out and cool with hitting a 42' sailboat head-on because, hey man, everyone's gotta go sometime and when you think about it, nothing but death gives us true peace and makes us more one with the Mother Earth.
The Hot Tub Boat's maximum speed is 5 mph on calm water, and its alleged maximum draft distance is 20". A rechargeable battery pack delivers 10 hours of power in a single, overnight charge.
Please call 800.227.3528 for further details, and Johnny Rizzo for the $42,000 loan you'll need to complete the boat's purchase.
Hammacher Schlemmer is a retailer and mail order dealer founded in 1848. They claim to be the oldest continuously published catalog in the United States, with a claimed annual catalog circulation exceeding 30 million.
They are based in Niles, Illinois. The company is owned by the heirs of J. Roderick MacArthur, the founder of the Bradford Exchange, who purchased Hammacher Schlemmer in 1980.

Pat Keller Survives 100 Foot Drop in Kayak From Ozone Falls in TN. Three kayakers scouted Ozone Falls and its 100-foot drop that no one had dared run in a kayak previously and saw it raging after the torrential rainfall in the Southeast. "Honestly, it looked like...you could knock yourself out or break your back," Chris Gragtmans told Canoe & Kayak.
Scared, but knowing it was possible to run, Pat Keller geared up for a first descent of Ozone Falls in Cumberland County, Tennessee.
In case you're wondering, there is a good reason Keller didn't capture video from his helmet camera. The camera ended up at the bottom of the pool beneath Ozone Falls, which has been called by kayakers as the Holy Grail of the Southeast. Watch the incredible drop:
After the drop, in which Keller ditches his paddle halfway down (below photo) and loses his helmet camera, the crew measured the height of the falls at 101-102 feet. By comparison, Niagara Falls is 167 feet.
"The impact's exponentially larger the higher you get...talking bone-breaking, face-smashing, any of the bad things--knocked unconscious, break your neck," Keller said.
So Keller ought to be thankful that his only casualty was his helmet camera.
