    I enjoyed this podcast while on a MTB ride in Bidwell park yesterday. Good stuff, thanks @MarcusBrown

    Great job @MarcusBrown !!! Wade did an excellent clinic at our lake a couple summers ago!!!

    Appreciate it MB! Brings back good memories watching Wade, Andy, Carl and others battle it out in Sac town every year. I remember getting Wade's autograph and his vibe was so chill and cool but man did his demeanor change when he slipped into his bindings. Same for Andy... I loved watching these guys' pre-game routine... so focused!

    Very cool, I didn't realize Wade is only 48, thought he would be in his mid 50's. He must of been pretty young competing on the pro tour back in the day.

    Wade rocks. We skied one of his clinics years back. Afterwards he came over to @razorskier1's place for dinner, beer, and throwing some bean bags. Great guy...super down to earth, awesome stories.

    He actually said some people don't want to get coached by him because he doesn't ski anymore.

    @escmanaze good call on Wade in WSM. Back in 94 or so I remember flipping through a new issue and about half way through saying to my self holy s---- Wade. Seemed like he was on almost evey page and cover.

    So he says he's out at OWC teaching people to ski. What? I was at OWC just a short time ago and they had no course set up in the boat section. Who is going to pay to ride a 200 and have Wade Cox coach them when there aren't any balls around? Come on!! This thing isn't called open water of spray!! :)

    Great stories from Wade....I still have a video tape instruction from Wade, great stuff and an incredible skier and person. Thank's Marcus Brown

    @Ralph Lee how long ago was that? When I went about a year and a half ago, they acted for a minute like there was a submerged course and then pretty soon they gave up on it and told me "free skiing or bust."

    @chris55 I think I probably have that same video. Came free with the purchase of a CDX-1 in 2002.

    Wade is one good man. He has been insanely talented since he was a young boy and worked his tail off as a pro. One of the greatest talents the world has ever seen. There is a wisdom that guys like Wade, Andy and Chris Lapoint have that has value beyond measure and will not be around forever.
    If you want to learn... skiing with wade is a resource that should not be passed up. Not to mention he has good stories that should be passed down ( waterski folklore).
    Don't forget one of the most amazing on sides ever seen. Go and learn!
