dadthedriver 01-11-2008 12:55 PM

wow, 15. It would be interesting to see the differences between the guys who got big pretty young and those who were older before they got a name. I have no empirical data but it seems the ones who got big later are better equipped to handle it with better life skills. Zane, Murray come to mind. There is a pretty big list of those who didn't but I don't want to mention names. <BR> <BR>In the long run I bet it is better to not get a big name at a young age. Maybe parents would better serve their kids with that in mind.

hey thats the truth sometimes u need to look ur self in the mirror. I saw him at the faction premier he seemed super chill and laid back. i saw him on u tube in a christ for wakeboarding and i usually see him wearing a cross. that may be part of it. I say great for him.

there was a great article in Alliance mag about him a few months back. he touches a bit on why he left, and why he came back. it seems that religion is a big part of his life now. I dont care what brought him back. I am just glad he is back behind the boat again. <BR> I think the Standerd is featuring him in their next issue. (I think they are. dont quote me on that)

the road is hard on the young guns, I have seen it first hand. Constant Party is tought to handle.

Pretty sure Murray was 17-18 when he signed with Hyperlite. Same with Zane, he was a show skier in his late teens when he picked up Connelly's skiboard. <BR> <BR>As for Randall, he just got caught up in a lifestyle that doesn't let go. Tangled with the wrong folks and got hooked on the wrong stuff. Now he's a believer and chillin with God, big upgrade.

on transgression in his interview he talks alot about what happened and why he stopped. im not exactly sure about what had happened cause i cant really remember some stuff he said but yea pretty much what big heavy said... vandall is the best wakeboarder ever, he is definetly my favorite.

When the pros came to Fort Worth I got to see him ride. He came out to Wakeboard Church we have on thursday nights. After we ride, we tie up and do a devotional. Gator lead the devotional that night. Those guys are super cool. Videos dont show how big THE VANDALL Goes. It is unreal!!!! I hope nothing but good things for those guys.

The last trick vandall pulls on trangression is killer! <BR>i was expecting something huge, but its just a massive poked out grab (boarderline glide) ... poetic ending to a rad section

01-12-2008 7:38 AM

yea his part in transgression was the best ive seen

andy_nintzel 01-12-2008 9:14 AM

he loves doing moves that look simple but are actually hard than most nines.

michelelef 01-12-2008 4:23 PM

In New Jersey at our wakefest he was able to come out and ride...unbelievable!! Then afterward we had a Transgression Premier with Ronn Seidenglanz from Sidewayz. Aside from being an incredible rider, Randall was amazing to talk to. Sick video if you haven't seen it!

01-12-2008 4:25 PM

yea for sure. <BR> <BR>and i read somewhere that he tried a wrapped toeside backside 7 for the first time and pretty much stuck it but he lost the handle as he landed.

zink 01-12-2008 5:51 PM

whats the difference between best wakeboarder(BONECRUSHER) and best wake rider(THE VANDALL)who's the MAN?

brhanley 01-12-2008 6:20 PM

Rusty = best at everything on a wakeboard when considered in totality (contests, jibs, rails, freeride, video, etc.); Randall = best at wakeriding, not necessarily contests, rails, etc.

lachie_mew 01-12-2008 8:36 PM

i heard somewhere that he stopped because of drugs or something
