There is tension and sibling rivalry with most pairs of siblings but Phil and Bob take it to a whole other level. The two brothers could not be more different. They share the same wakeboarding passion and ability but that is where the similarities end. The two brothers could not be more different. Phil is the older brother and the more serious and driven of the two. He gets angry very easily and Bob loves to try and play pranks on him to get him to show his irritation. Bob is the younger brother. He is a lovable prankster and likes to try and get girls to call him by his nickname, Matador.

The show relies on the up and down relationship between the brothers for a lot of comedic relief. Some of the episodes are entirely devoted to wakeboarding events and the other episodes are devoted to the routine, daily lives of the brothers and the adventures they have.

The boys experience a lot of drama in their wakeboarding careers. Phil is currently a lot higher on the leader board than Bob. Bob has also recently suffered a knee injury and is taking some time to recuperate. This also leads to some tension between the brothers. Bob has such a wild personality that being out of commission with his injury is incredibly difficult for him. As the older, more mature brother, the series shows how Phil tries to help Bob in dealing with his injury.
