mtownrydr 03-26-2009 10:53 PM

That wake is effin JACKED!!!

scott_a 03-26-2009 11:09 PM

The song is 'Summertime Clothes' by Animal Collective.

misfits1981 03-27-2009 12:18 AM

"Shannon Best was bigger than all of them." <BR> <BR>My knees hurt now. That is a huge kick off the wake!

waterdork88 03-27-2009 12:29 AM

adam_balon 03-27-2009 1:59 AM

wakereviews 03-27-2009 6:49 AM

wow!

andy_nintzel 03-27-2009 7:07 AM

homeboy is good.

kcrider 03-27-2009 9:39 AM

WOW

tcaz 03-27-2009 9:48 AM

Wow, that wake is ridiculous...

andy_nintzel 03-27-2009 9:49 AM

I dont think that most people understand how hard it is to get booted like that and not drift way out and up. Staying fairly flat like that is so hard its carzy.

canucked 03-27-2009 9:51 AM

Is Rusty water soluable? He sure doesn't like to get wet. <BR> <BR>oh and...awesome riding

saceone 03-27-2009 9:57 AM

kid.got.pop. <BR> <BR>oh yeah <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>

hockey9 03-27-2009 10:17 AM

That's HUGE! I was as impressed on how he stayed afloat and made it back to the swim deck without even getting soaked, that was sweet.

wakeboardsam 03-27-2009 10:33 AM

What handle is he using? I have huge hands and always wonder what other big guys use for handles. I find the that the larger the handle diameter the easier it is to hold on for a long time.

exfuze 03-27-2009 10:38 AM

HUGE. Wonder how many frames.

dhv142 03-27-2009 11:05 AM

DANG!!!!!!! rusty is an absolute beast and that wake was legit!!! cant wait til that issue comes out

westsidarider 03-27-2009 11:09 AM

"HUGE. Wonder how many frames." <BR> <BR>Hard to say. I guess you could pull it from the video but most photogs dont shoot in sequence unless they are trying for a sequence.

showmedonttellme 03-27-2009 11:36 AM

Massive wake. Just massive.

ponder86 03-27-2009 1:24 PM

Sam, he is using the Marek Carbon Handle

ralph 03-27-2009 1:53 PM

I've never seen a wake than big and vertical before. Rusty seems to like it!

treycleaton 03-27-2009 3:06 PM

Is he hitting the double up each time? That is the perfect w2w technique. He doesn't look very far back either.

lfadam 03-27-2009 3:13 PM

Sick. I know from recent experience how hard it is to hit a double up that big...haha I was riding with a friend behind his x star with 5 sacks, the factory and 3 people (~3500-4000lbs weight) and went to hit the 3rd roller. As I got to the trough (read: dropped nearly a foot DOWN into the trough) I realized I was looking almost eye to eye with the top of the wake so I ditched the handle, knowing I would either dig my nose and eat @^# or go straight up really high then come up short and eat @#&amp;$. So i dropped the handle and tried to absorb the double up, but it was so big I still did a completely inadvertent HS backroll to faceplant. Owned. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> Props to be able to control a dub like those.

splatman 03-27-2009 4:35 PM

that blew my mind.

bcrider 03-27-2009 4:55 PM

Ya that's all of a double up. You can see the rollers. <BR> <BR>Impressive for sure.

srh00z 03-27-2009 6:27 PM

It was impressive to see how high he went, but it was also impressive how easy the landings looked each time. I know he was riding down the other wake, but it just seemed like most of those landings were pretty soft considering he is falling from the stratosphere.

gene3x 03-27-2009 6:34 PM

The driver is huge in that scenario.

vlxwakeboarder 03-27-2009 9:01 PM

There is no telling how much weight they had in the boat since they were just going for a double up shot. Ridiculous.

02ssv 03-28-2009 5:59 AM

Driver is key to serving up MEATBALLS like that and Parks is one of the best in the biz. That was SICK HUGE!

alevitt 03-28-2009 10:20 AM

It was Kyle Rattray driving those double-ups. Considering he lives on the same lake as Rusty I'd say Kyle's pretty used to serving up big D-ups for Rusty.

benjaminp 03-28-2009 10:58 AM

It was awesome to watch that video in the morning and recieve my new issue of WBM a couple hours later and see the cover shot. Does anyone know what those Fox boardshorts are called?

gotwake124 03-28-2009 5:36 PM

haha adam that was hilarious that day we gotta ride at sml soon

phat_steve 03-28-2009 7:52 PM

Yea I walked into local shop today and saw the mag on the counter and was like i just saw this. Hopefully my issue gets here soon i didnt even look at anything but the cover. Those shorts are called Latinese or something like that, I checked them out today. They are made of some new material that feels a little weird. And they where 69 bucks!!!

vlxwakeboarder 03-28-2009 8:54 PM

Havnt got my issue yet either. Hurry it up mailman.

wake2wake_66 03-29-2009 1:40 PM

I bought those shorts and they are amazing! I also got the ones that Danny advertises for. I like them too. Fox makes the best shorts ever.

wakeboardern1 03-29-2009 1:43 PM

Adam, I want a shot of you trying a double up like that for Gnarcolepsy, even if you eat it. It has to happen. =P

lfadam 03-29-2009 2:07 PM

Haha Nick Ill see what I can do. I love double ups...and if I cant get another double up that big, I know how to drive triple ups that are unhittably big and steep, so we could make something work...

benjaminp 03-29-2009 4:46 PM

I looked at the boardshorts as he came onto the swim platform and I dont think they are the Latinese, they look like one of last year's models, more zebra striped. And Adam, please post a video of you hitting a triple up, that sounds epic.

lfadam 03-29-2009 8:15 PM

dont have any right now, but Ill be sure to get them this summer and post plenty of vids of me/my friends eating it on triple ups (and hopefully one or two sick clips of us actually getting booted off one)

gti2lo 03-29-2009 9:00 PM

Kyle is def a good driver! <BR> <BR>D-up is friggen huge!
