Pre-orders will close on April 15th and everyone who purchase's a copy before that time will be entered into a draw for a free Wave Sport boat of choice including the all new Project X! The winner will then be announced on April 25th. Huge thanks to Wave Sport for there support with this project and offering a boat for this draw!

I'm a pretty picky guy and I couldn't stand the thought of…Continue
