Just wanted to say big props to AJ Racinelli for making the move over to Gator boards! This kid is blowing up fast nice to see him riding for Gator, cant wait to see what he does in the 08 season! Loved watching him land his first whirly 5 behind my boat, then stick in a contest the next day to take the win in MN! <BR> <BR>Congats Bro! We will have to ride soon! <BR> <BR>Check it! <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.gatorboards.com/Wakeboard/AJ-Racinelli" target="_blank">www.gatorboards.com/Wakeboard/AJ-Racinelli</a>

Hate to see him leave HL, but wish him the best on his new team.

Ya, I agree...hate to see him leave Hyperlite, he is an awesome rider and wish him the best on his new team.

Anyone know the reason he left hype?

andy_nintzel 11-25-2007 9:32 AM

Just like all riders who move companies, the deal must have been better than what he was getting at HL.

Gator has a sweet team.

wakerider111 11-25-2007 5:09 PM

to be riding side by side with the Vandall is good-enough reason alone ;)

andy_nintzel 11-26-2007 12:50 PM

Talked to Aj today, he was out riding with Randall when I was on the phone with him! That must suck! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> He is super stoked to be part of the Gator team, he is currently riding the Harris board and the Gonzalez Closed toe boot. <BR> <BR>If only we could have him for O'brien.....

AJ's second time with Gator. <BR> <BR>Good kid, Great rider, wish him the best!

"Talked to Aj today, he was out riding with Randall when I was on the phone with him!" <BR> <BR> <BR>I dont know him personally, but that may be an excuse why if i had to make a guess

Congrats to AJ and Gator!

dakid 11-27-2007 11:24 AM

why would randall be an excuse for aj to sign w/ gator?? would aj not be allowed to ride w/ him if he stuck w/ hyperlite?

mikel 11-27-2007 1:01 PM

If you are on the same team as another rider, you often have more opportunities to ride with members of that team (photo shoots, gear testing, etc). <BR> <BR>I think people are tongue in cheek when they comment that it would be "an excuse to sign". <BR> <BR>Are you having a bad day Joe?

Congrats to AJ.

wakerider111 11-27-2007 1:20 PM

Mike and Joe, you both have your points <BR>correct me if i am wrong, but don't harf and malinowski live on the same lake... or practically the same lake? If so Location probably trumps team in this situation of riding together time. But there has got to be something emotional about being a brother on the gator team (or any team if you wish)... <BR> <BR>... haha... i almost wanted to edit that, "emotional" haha... but in a way i am serious... small way... I think you all can kind of get my drift?

dakid 11-27-2007 1:26 PM

emotional...haha! should've trumped it! <BR> <BR>just kidding man. yeah, i catch your drift.

innov8 11-27-2007 1:29 PM

Harf and Rusty dont ride for the same board company, but they do both ride for Fox. <BR> <BR>Congrats A.J.

dakid 11-27-2007 1:40 PM

dallas friday and jd webb both ride for red bull. why don't they ride together? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

mikel 11-27-2007 1:44 PM

True...and AJ may like that a couple of the riders live in his area (So Cal -Ricky and Randall)...plus isn't the GB factory in Murrieta now? <BR> <BR>Either way, regardless of who sponsors him, I enjoy watching AJ ride and wish him the best.

dakid 11-27-2007 1:46 PM

last i heard, aj lives in orlando now.

dakid 11-27-2007 1:47 PM

i too enjoy aj's riding. the kid's badass and just gets better and better!
