adam errington and kyle murphy aren't on the list.

neither is Bret V.

...and Nick Taylor, probably the top wakeskater after Reed Hansen. And Ryan Lemons, he has also landed some really hard tricks that no one else is doing.

or kyle walton

I've got 'em all added. Thanks guys. Let me know if you see any other riders missing.

Why are these conducted before nationals and worlds. There is still wakestock also. If someone does well in those it would change my voting. Especially rookies. Who would you put there at this point? Now if one of them stomps it in the next 2 months that would be a huge difference.

We're not looking for riders that just do well in contests. We're looking for your favorite riders whether they be contest riders or freeriders. Scott Byerly consistently shows up in the top ten for wakeboarders, but he hasn't really competed in years. <BR> <BR>In addition, August is our busiest month of the year. After that, traffic starts tapering off, so we want to make sure the maximum number of people are here to make their opinions known.

David, <BR> <BR>One of these years you should reverse the order alphabetically (i.e. JD Webb would be near the top of the list, while Atkinson would be at the bottom). I have wondered how much clicking the link and seeing 2 Bonifay's right near the top increases their popularity in the voting. It would be interesting to see if it changed anything or not.

no Derek Cook? he would get my vote for most improved rider hands down

bigpapaf1f 08-02-2006 11:59 AM

Sean, I was thinkin the same thing! He has improved so much in the last few years! From DS1 to DS2 its unreal to see how much he has improved! Have you ever seen DS1 or DS2??<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>J/k He has soooo much style!! I love to watch him ride! I was lookin for him for my top ten! <BR> <BR>Its good to see Shelby, and the Hoffman girls on the list! All 3 got my vote!! Way to go girls!!

wakeworld 08-02-2006 1:47 PM

Derek has been added to the list. <BR> <BR>Loren, I feel ya since I'm a Williams and have been at the back of the line all my life. It would be interesting to try, but it just might confuse the hell out of people too. Maybe I'll try alphabetizing by first name.

manda 08-03-2006 1:21 AM

there is no andrea fountain in the chicks list!!

wakeworld 08-03-2006 11:29 AM

She's been added. Thanks.
