i was riding between lakes and ran across kyle schmit in his boat. i waved he saw us and didn't wave or reply. are they really that stuck up? when you run across them at the contests they are nice as can be , but in person there not <BR>WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

wake1823 06-07-2007 2:06 PM

maybe he didn't see you? unless you have some for of ESP you don't know if he saw you.

eubanks01 06-07-2007 2:08 PM

Maybe he didn't wave because you were either wearing the hated orange flotation device or your riding was really bad! <BR> <BR>Ok, I'm kidding. I went to The Wakeboard Camp and Kyle was a very nice guy. Maybe he was in a bad mood, didn't see you, etc. I'm sure this isn't the first (or last time) you'll wave at someone on the lake that won't return the favor. Don't sweat it man.

jusstty 06-07-2007 2:08 PM

Maybe he didn't like the way that you waved

eubanks01 06-07-2007 2:09 PM

Yeah, most people don't like being waved at if it's only your middle finger sticking up.

denverd1 06-07-2007 2:12 PM

they could at least wave it back!

kylo_j 06-07-2007 2:14 PM

man i was close enough to talk too him and i had a few hotties on the boat we were just putting through the cannal the chicks must have been too hot lol.

criswb 06-07-2007 2:16 PM

are you sure he saw you? sometimes I'd be looking at one direction but thinking about other things and Im not paying attention at whats happening directly in front of me.

jimmyjam 06-07-2007 2:22 PM

Kyle is one of the nicest riders out there. I've seen him out and about after not seeing him for a year and he recognized me and remembered my name.

kylo_j 06-07-2007 2:24 PM

yea i do it too that is a possibility . i met him at the manfactures party a couple weeks ago and he was nice . i must have caught him on a bad day . and he can't miss me putting by cause my boat is the sane color and everything but i have tinted windows on mine

allen 06-07-2007 2:32 PM

Every Pro I have ever met is super nice. In Kyle's defense you can't wave at everybody you see on the water. If we did that we would be waving all day. So i wouldn't pass judgement on him just cause he didn't wave. <BR>AL

richd 06-07-2007 3:35 PM

What difference does it make that he's a pro? <BR> <BR>I generally only wave at people I know and no one's complained so far! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/459681.gif" alt="Upload">

teamvaldez 06-07-2007 4:44 PM

whats with that Rich Dykmans guy?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/kiss.gif" border=0>

cwb_fooguitarlz 06-07-2007 6:49 PM

one of my buddies went to a PWT stop and he said he saw all his favorite pros and they all waved....except froggy. he said Soven didnt acknowledge him or anything

jcv 06-07-2007 8:45 PM

Dude, you should never judge anyone from a 5 second interaction (or lack thereof). I wave to every fisherman I see, and I usually only get one wave back out of a hundred. And they can't all be a-holes...right?

eubanks01 06-07-2007 8:52 PM

I was at this pro contest once and I was waving like crazy during Murray's 2nd pass in the semi-finals. He never waved back nor did he even look up at me. I was sreaming from the shore...but nothing. And I thought he was a stand up guy?!

closedtoe 06-07-2007 8:55 PM

Wasn't he riding during his second pass?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> <BR>He was probably focusing on riding and didn't notice you

wake_pirate 06-07-2007 9:44 PM

Was he wakeboarding? or WakeParading?

dlwsrider 06-07-2007 9:56 PM

hahaha, i dont even notice theres a boat on my second pass normally

dtb 06-08-2007 5:09 AM

i think it is pretty obvious that kyle was looking at the "hotties" in your boat and didn't notice you waving. if you want the pros to notice you, leave the chicks at home next time....

ronnyboy27 06-08-2007 8:03 AM

DTB - Did you just suggest that cut off his shlong. Cause, "leave the chicks at home next time" is just about the same thing. That's always my response when people suggest I sell my boat to get out of debt. There are needs and wants in life. Wakeboarding with hot chicks is a need. LOL

erik_c 06-08-2007 8:05 AM

I wave at fisherman all the time; they never wave back.

riz 06-08-2007 4:00 PM

Does not waving back render a person to be stuck up?

wakeboardnchica 06-08-2007 4:16 PM

dude chill <BR> <BR>every pro i've ever met has been insanely nice. He probably just didn't see you

forumriders 06-08-2007 4:42 PM

insanely nice??? well your a chica<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

dtb 06-12-2007 8:03 AM

Um, Ron, I hope you're picking up the sarcasm, cause I'm laying it on pretty thick....

brownie 06-13-2007 7:04 PM

Why do people feel inclined to wave at strangers in boats? I don't wave to everyone I drive past in my car.

solo 06-13-2007 7:10 PM

Kyle is a really good guy. He probably didn't see you. I wave at people all the time and never get a response.

bbking 06-14-2007 6:06 AM

since when do we not wave to every boat we see? <BR> <BR>but seriously, don't take it personal... have you ever missed someone trying to get your attention? <BR> <BR>(Message edited by bbking on June 14, 2007)

goatroper222000 06-14-2007 8:35 AM

*hijack* <BR>Eubanks, <BR> i am probably gunna go to the Wakeboard Camp this summer...it all depends on if we can get somebody to buy our old boat. did u like it? was the teaching good? wat kind of atmosphere was it? laidback? or serius? *end hijack*

committed 06-14-2007 9:58 AM

There is something very fruity cocktails w/umbrellas and dolphin short wearing; about this thread on "waving." <BR>Couldn't care less about waving, who waves anymore? Chaka is much better, maybe try the dual finger (rocked slightly to the side for style) "Peace," hell, mix it up and drop a heavy metal goathead sign, even the never-gets-old thumbs up, but a "wave?" Save the wave for Parades and Ms. American contest, and please, don't tell anyone about a "none" waver. Now, if they don't acknowledge the throwing of the Chaka, it's fine to fight. No weapons though, keep it clean. <BR>Back to the ^hijack above on camps.

byrd 06-14-2007 10:59 AM

You are lucky he didnt return the wave. If he would have, your hotties might have "jumped ship"...

zaneschwenk 06-14-2007 12:06 PM

Hey guys most if not all of the pro riders are pretty cool, they are very friendly, but believe it or not they can be humble and shy too, so if they are not quick to return the wave most of the time it's because they are like...hmmm why would that dude be waving at me....Kyle is a GREAT guy and you should not have taken offense to his actions...he is quiet, hell I hardly talk to him but I know he means well and loves the sport....so enough bashing the bros brosef. <BR> <BR>Zane

_jason_ 06-14-2007 12:10 PM

Well said Zane. It would take some getting use to i would imagine, everyone knows you and waves and you really don't know them or expect anything from them. Plus, after all its only a wave!! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>
