|Nice! That's big for sure.|
|Does Billy only have one arm? Either way both pics are huuuge|
|I dont have a pic behind the boat thats worthy to put up... but heres one at OWC... I dont have the fancy sequence shot though sorry. |
|I think that Billy Tonis does just have one arm, there was an article on him. WHAT A MAN though!!! I cant even fathem (spelt wrong I think) that!!!|
|Nah he has two arms, the right one is paralyzed I think. He wraps it in some sort of sling while he is riding. can't remember how it happened.|
|Tonis......you go boy!! That s*** is BIG!!|
|Umali has a big back roll.|
|Billy doing that one armed is amazing for sure. It takes everything in both my arms to do them big, I couldn't imagine how strong he has to be to hang on with one hand. Props for sure. I do love launching big backrolls though, one of my favorite feelings.|
|mine are mostly wake to wake, especially any pics i got of em |
i remember seeing a good pic from Ryan Shimabukuro once i think.
that first pic of billy would look totally like a one handed air railey if his body position was twisted about 90 degrees clockwise. his arm is almost fully extended over his head it seems!
|Thanks for the shout out Jeremy. I don't have a sequence shot of my backroll but here's 2 links to a pic & video on my Wakepics account. |
BTW, that sequence of Billy is sick. Major props to him. Hope I get the chance to see him ride in person one of these days.
|Not to make Billy head go BUT I do feel privileged to ride with him as often as I do. |
The crap he pulls off is amazing
|Billy is one of my favorite riders, truly inspirational. I believe his accident was from motocross.|
|This isn't me, its this guy named Chad Wheaton I rode with down at Acapulco Getaways |
|Hell yeah...he's chargin it.|
|Billy's wins so far!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Tonis doin' work as usual.|
|And I heard it was a rodeo accident some bull Cupcake or something |
|Skydiving, parachute didn't open!!!|
|OOOOOOHHHHH that's a good one Al.....Lol We should stick with that story.|
|Sorry, but doing a backroll does not really do it for me unless you are grabbing it. Otherwise it is nothing more then a quick flipping gymnastic sequence???|
|Honestly...... Billy was surfing off the coast of Costa Rica, when a great white surfaced and took him under... crazy story. |
Billy goes grande
|Tom, then where's your pic?.. Let's see your huge grabbed roll.|
|It's okay Tom, this thread isn't about impressing you.|
|ya tom you should try and tuck ur arm in ur vest and do a backroll. im sure you wouldnt be able to grab it either. |
J-rod, good seein you guys out yesterday
|yank the handle in let go, backroll and then grab the handle when u get around on your backroll. Ousmos=roll|
|I heard Billy was fighting Chuck Norris and decided to make it a fair fight |
...........so he removed one of his arms.......
|Mike, nice riding yesterday. Stomping the crow mobe right when you were going by is a classy touch. Lookin' good. |
Cliff is on the money. That's what actually happened.
|Tonis wins! |
Here is a link to Gia Maria's largest to date. Sorry for the bad video.
Brian Benjamin-VT wakeboard Club
|Tonis is looking like Doug Homan in that shot. huge!|
|I love to see people going big on inverts!|
|That Brian Benjamin roll was pretty huge, even more impressive with the rough water.|
|thanks for the props, hahn, but my backroll isn't nearly as big as those above.|
|thanks Evan you guys saw the first try of the season on that one. but riding or not, you guys had more girls in the boat so you win ahhahha|
|haha, you saw us on the one day a year when the wives come out.|
|Billy - you definitely kept your stamina up this winter! |
I think you were going so big to impress the beautiful girls riding with you guys this weekend!
|I'm goin' with Gia Maria on the girls side. I've seen a couple of them in person, and they are legit! |
Tonis- You're awesome!

|Here is an oldy (circa 2004) of a 47 yo throwing down. |
|Here is a better one. Delbert has my vote!!!|
|any pics of him doing a broll off the wake, not off a double-up?|
|that is still impressive off the DU. Twice as cool with the stash!|
|That's big. I remember that shot from years ago.|
|I see Billy loves that X-Star wake, awesome backroll Billy. He's the only one I know who takes a raley cut into the wake for a backroll, period!|
|This thread is killing me!! Thanks guys! |
Check this one out, wait for it...SMACK!
|Dood, the wake was rediculous in that video.|
|i am a fan. nice cabroll too. huge!|
