Being a Man: Ride to Destruction

Before you get up in my face with the name-calling and chauvinist comments, I’m in no way saying that women don’t enjoy danger and nearly killing themselves doing stupidly awesome things. I do know that there is some primal part of me that gets excited thinking about jumping off of stuff and blowing things up.

As a man, I know that until I find the right woman and start a family, I’m mostly not going to take safety as seriously as I should. So with that being said, I looked up on Wikipedia what wakeboarding is all about:

Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water behind a boat. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques.

The rider is towed behind a boat; typically at speeds of 18-24 miles per hour depending on water conditions, rider’s weight, board size, and all depending on the riders comfort speed. But wakeboarding can also be performed on a variety of media including closed-course cables, winches, PWCs, and ATVs. Wakeboarding can be dangerous.

And since that last line “can be dangerous” was exciting, I found this site that sells wakeboards, and they’re pretty dang cool looking. And if I thought I’d get the opportunity to do it, I’d totally get a wakeboard of my own.

But since most people, around where I live at least, don’t do things like that, I’m pretty much stuck with jumping in the river or hiking to a mountain stream and cliff diving. Or, you know, blowing stuff up. Or jumping off of things. Or driving too fast. Or starting underground fight clubs. Yeah. I do all that stuff. That’s the ticket.
