    Adventuring with one of the best skiers on the planet, in one of the World's wildest places: Baja In 2002 I got a phone call that would change my life forever. The first thing I heard was laughing, followed by “hey, its Glen Plake….lets go water ski!” In 2004 I had the chance to go to Acapulco with Glen for a Warren Miller film…that week was the first time we really talked about skiing…and it got me thinking in new ways In 2008, because of Glen’s influence and his success with the Downhome tour, the FacetoFaceTour was born. Over the years, Glen and I had many discussions about the parallels between the Snow and Water Ski industries. In 2014, it became apparent that what I had been doing my whole career wasn’t actually growing the sport or introducing it to new people. Glen’s influence again materialized in the form of FlowPointTV. And there we were….talking about old times and dreaming about new adventures. Glen mentioned Baja, and it took me back to my childhood… Every winter, for almost a decade in the 70’s and 80’s, my parents would round up a crew and head to Baja. Camping, fishing, skiing,…livin. I was born just before their last trips down…so I barely remember anything. But there was always something magical about the place…a little voice in my head that was always calling me back. So finally, after 30 years, it was time to pack up and road trip back to Baja. Its more than a thousand miles from Chico to the Bay of LA and less than an hour into the trip my nephew Gavin was already struggling. It was foreshadowing….. cuz later that evening….about 3 in the morning, as we were rolling into San Diego….the Van exploded… a Walmart Semi almost took us out. We struggled off the freeway, lifted the hood and knew something wasn’t right. Oil everywhere, and some parts and pieces missing, we thought the trip was done… 1 tow truck ride, a 3 hr sleep, 24hrs kicking around San Diego and $1000 later, we were on the road again…southbound. We had know idea what to expect in Baja. -When we crossed the border and made our way south, we noticed immediately how raw and wild this place was ….it felt a lot like I’d imagine California was back in the 50’s….. Dirt roads, blue water and few rules. Perfect. 10 hours later, when we rolled into the the Bay of LA that evening, we knew we were into something pretty sweet. Glen’s dad, Jim Plake, found this place decades ago, and had a vision….today, Fort Plake sits on the Sea of Cortez, and is no longer just a dream. And for a few days, it was our paradise. We kicked things off with a bit of skiing…. But when Glen Plake is your tour guide, its pretty funny how what you thought you were going to be doing….and what you end up doing….are two completely different things…. Fish Ski Whale Watch Desert Exploring Rain Ham Radioing Swim with the Dolphins Ski Racks IClimbing More Fishing Culinary Arts Kite Flying More Rain More Skiing We’d be here all day if we showed you everything….so instead, here’s a highlight reel…. You’ve just seen part of our Baja Trip, all the way through I don’t know any better way to stop time and feel that spark of invincibility, than living life on the water…its not just about skiing…..but skiing is the magnet that brings us together, and the glue that keeps us together….hopefully forever… I’m lucky to have aparents that taught me that lesson at an early age…. And thanks to them, we re-discovered this magical place….and found the FlowPoint… - Marcus Brown, Cinco De Mayo, 2015

        Common Threads and Shreds You meet cool people. At Starbucks. At the grocery store. At a party. I’ve had the opportunity to water ski at a high level, all over the world, for the past couple decades. It has been one of the raddest and most enriching parts of my life. Probably one of the greatest highlights though, has been the friends I’ve found along the way. Last summer I had the opportunity to do some water skiing with one of those friends. Steven Nyman snow skis for a living. But he’s also a water skier, and he’s been doing it since he was a kid. We decided to meet up a couple times throughout the summer, to do just that: ski. After a July 4th session on Tahoe, and a early Halloween camp here in Chico, I decided to put together a FlowPoint TV Episode on Steven. Why he skis, how it helps him on the hill, and maybe even see if he had any thoughts on the best way to carry a water ski. But as winter hit, and the first few FIS World Cup races went down, I realized this story was going to be a whole lot more than sunsets and summertime. After a challenging racing career, including some great World Cup wins and many injuries, Steven came alive this season, and what a time to do it. Not only is it a World Championship year (every 2 years), but its the first time they’ve been back in the United States, since 1999. And it might just be Steven’s favorite hill. The Birds of Prey is the only World Cup stop in the US for the men. Steven has 3 career podium finishes at Birds of Prey, including a 3rd just 2 months ago. This is a story about Steven.

              Skiing: (from Wikipedia) "Skiing is a recreational activity and competitive winter sport in which the participant uses skis to glide on snow." They forgot to add water. We did it for them...all in the same day. Damn California sure is nice!!!
