Just wanted to give a shout out and even a bigger thanks to Ricky G and Randell H for sighing my little girls new lexy 127 gator board. She was so excited that they autograph it. Also these guys and every one in their booth was hella cool. She keeps on telling me that she cant wait to go out on the boat and ride. Made pops proud. She made me hang her board on her wall in her room. Ill post a pict tomorrow.

two of the nicest riders out there. When I moved to SoCal Ricky invited me out to ride with him after trying to make connects on Wakeworld, he just called me out of the blue. In fact, when I got the message on my phone I thought that one of my buddies was punking me, like I would call the # back and Ricky would be like, "who the hell is this?" But no, it was him, fun guy, great rider!

We hung out in the same booth all weekend at the boat show. Nice guys.

I agree... Ricky G is a great person; he looks so hard with his tats, but he is one of the nicest pro riders that I have met. I have not had the chance to meet Randall H yet, but if he is watching this thread, I'm down to winch or ride anytime. I met and rode with Ricky G and Drew McGuckin last summer (Drew is also a very nice guy). <BR> <BR>Thanks, <BR> <BR>Ken Land <BR>Bullet Lines <BR><a href="http://www.bulletlines.com" target="_blank">www.bulletlines.com</a> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeboarding-winch.com" target="_blank">www.wakeboarding-winch.com</a>

Couldn't agree even more those two guys are very down to earth. My son and I got their autographs and photos taken with them. I couldn't believe Ricky G actually gave me his phone number (sorry can't give that out), I hope to call him when I go back to Southern Cal. they happen to ride one of the lakes my brother and I ride (Lake Elsinore). I can't believe how long of a rope (90')and how fast (27 mph) both him and Vandall ride...Like I said they are STELLAR to say the least!

I have know both guys for awhile and known Ricky since back in the day. I can honestly say, this is the happiest and most confident I have seen him in many years He is riding and being pushed almost every day with Randall which is good for the both of them. I am super stoked for him and this may be what he needs to finally get the recognition he has deserved for many years.

One of my fav wake sections is Ricky G in all or nothing, simple smooth and stylish. Got to see Harris ride at Wakestock in Toronto, he had enough time to do 4 tricks per pass because he goes so fast and big, most guys were doing 6 to 7. He had to rush to make the last trick.

The whole Gator Team is AWESOME!!! Fun to hang out with &amp; they always seem to remember us (the GF &amp; I) from year to year &amp; even at different events. Totally not the rockstars they could be....

" Totally not the rockstars they could be " Im sure they have had their days... It was a Privilege to meet them both over the years.

I spoke with Ricky G &amp; Randall at Park's Double or Nothing this past year, and both were very down to earth, cool, and easy to talk to.

Randall is the nicest professional boarder there is. Very easy to talk to.
