yippie...another shitty creek boat...can't wait to see a bunch of them in paddle shops a few years from now for half price-nobody wanted one 2 years ago, nobody wanted one last year, nobody wanted one this year...just a guess, but i bet nobody will want one of them next year either.

 I wish that boat was shaped like a big turd, at least some times my turds resurface after hucking their meat.

terds like the old hero series don't deserve to get wet in the poopy flood water.

*when i actually tried the hero on my local river, it was poopy because there are a lot of pig farms on the drainage.

i bought my first jackson super hero during the summer of 06' but i didn't get into it until june 2, 07'. i enrolled in a class with current adventures in coloma, ca and i spent the entire day upside down... i shit you not, the bottom of my boat saw more daylight then i did... i blamed it on the dimentia... needless to say, i learned a pretty mean bow rescue. i gave the boat to my son and he loves it. the boat literally, plows through the waves, it's just not the right boat for me. i, currently paddle a mamba 8.5 and i will be buying a project 62 this month... maybe today... anyhooooo.... the super hero works for my son.
on an unrelated note... i'm trying to find some class II/II+ water to work on my mad skills of observing the rocks on the bottom... any help is appreciated.

If you're into geology, theres some fun rocks to classify under the powerhouse section.  Hope this helps.

sweet, just what I have always wanted...a creekboat that can loop, at least that way you can have some fun when you are getting trashed. All you prospective buyers out there, pay attention to how little of that video was actual creeking...at least they did not show it doing some stern squirts.

whatever

Harmes, Ryan? Why is Hugo kissing your ass now? 
  Is the rumor that he is a weak suck boater that swims on every rapid true? Did you guys discover this while rescuing him and all his gear from that Gnarly classII+?
  Inquiring minds want to know.

Sure?

If Homo could actually creek you'd see less angst. I forget, what do Mr Clean's posts sound like?

It is true though... there was almost as much playing in that video as creeking....

Marketing hype is the main game!

Hugo you didn't mention Leif specifically. Do you like Leif? Is he included in "everybody"? Personally I think he deserves special mention . I like Leif. There.
 
Brett how bout a little full disclosure about who you work for. I thought we covered that a couple months ago. Sheesh.

I think Homo is actually James' alter ego. He's been on the bench for so long he's actually sprung an alter ego... and it's pissed about not boating and full of angst. Remember when the water was low an' no one was boatin'?

I don't think James is prone to pulling cowardly crap, like hiding behind a fake user name...

I can pretty much promise that I am not hugo, and to prove it I invite Leif or any other developer the opportunity to come over at anytime and review my server logs past and ongoing in combination with forum cookies and IP logging. You will see the mess that is Hugo and the reason I think it is either multiple people or one savy individual.

I would be difficult if not ridiculous to fake what is happening here and leif would be able to identify a fake I create or cover up easily.

I can also say that I am not 100% sure who hugo is. I have had this conversation with alot of folks who have called me and pm'd after having their feelings hurt by this out of control individual.

Now if you would like to know how I stand on issues its simple. Some times I don't share because it is not appropriate. I would like having a false Identity. I could then flame people and speak my mind without worring about how it would affect the community. I could name a few names here of people that have completely screwed me over and stole copious amounts of money I earned the honest way. In our community and out, and some of you ... not many know what I am talking about. But you don't hear me or hugo doing it cause hugo ain't me... If he were you would hear it, its that simple.

Now here are some topics that I don't mind flaming because I don't think they affect our community ... in fact I feel like it benefits our community.

I think Jackson boats are crap for me. I have never fit one well and they seem to be constructed poorly, I have a lot of friends that used and either broke or just hated the creekers. I am not talking about on FITW runs either... Class V stuff. Old Models had stupid flaws like pointy pinny bow and sterns so the next year you see a 100% reverse  into a bulbous ballon  .... I just don't like the methods that the boats are designed. They seems to be the genius of a great playboater and do not strike me as great boats in general ... The strings are bunk and the outfitting sucks ... again this is my opinion and besides a few people trying to sell them, I don't know many experienced\frequent\hardcore boaters that like them. If you boat once or twice a week on a class IV they might be great...  but if you start running the sessions of goods over and over they just seem to suck

The company as a whole I think is strategic and EJ is a great business man. You can't knock him for that and I never would... but I also would never buy one of his products because I think he is so motivated he would gladly railroad local communities and people in an atempt to grow himself or the business. Again thats is a my surface point of view. I could use examples but that would make a long drawn out post and its all just my perspective.

Perhaps soon other people will see it too. I don't comment on all your posts and dog gone it brett, it's cause I like you. I hate Jacksons, not you at all. I don't openly flame people because I don't want to purposly hurt someone. I have accidentally and possibly on a rare event purposfully hurt people but I try to resolve things I have done wrong. I have verbally attacked Leif at a campsite ... clearly out of line and as mad as I was that weekend Leif knows that I care about him (I hope) and I would not try to hurt him. I acted out of anger and as hard as it may seem that is not always the best judge of a person although clearly an indicator of an area that could use growth.

All this to say... I am not hugo. I want to know who he is for sure, I have a few pretty good idea's and I am willing to help folks determine who he is if they feel he has wronged them, good luck though, because it is not a simple trace and point like Hardboof was.
