Nice! BJ Penn style.

hahaha was that on the 3gS?

Cough cough...... uh guys 44" means 44 inches not to impressive. i think you meant to say 44' feet. i got your back <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

allen 09-10-2009 3:17 PM

Uh Jim, <BR> Have you attempted a 44" pool jump? Really hard!! Ricky meant 44 inches.

62lincoln 09-10-2009 4:14 PM

yes its 44 inches. it is tough with the weight of the water holding you down. try it and see.

jarrod 09-10-2009 4:19 PM

That's just shy of 4 feet. Most people can't jump that high from a dead stop. In the water is much more difficult I'm sure.

ttrigo 09-10-2009 4:50 PM

can't view the vid at work. is this a jump from the pool ground, out of the water or something?

sinkoumn 09-10-2009 5:07 PM

Yeahah, going to go out on a limb and say anyone who thinks that is easy likely has never tried jumping any distance out of water from a standstill. <BR> <BR>Nice work Ricky, that takes some serious fitness.

wakeboardern1 09-10-2009 5:08 PM

I think Jim thought they were referencing a jump on a wakeboarding, haha.

ttrigo 09-10-2009 5:25 PM

that was my initial thought as well Nick. I just figured the 44" was a typo. but based on what it actually is, that is nuts. not sure if I could manage 12" in a pool!

romes 09-11-2009 1:13 AM

not tryna hate....thats pretty dope but i know a lot of cats who could do that. now what i dont know is too many cats that can hop a true 44" out of the water...now thats some serious jacks...

jsweat 09-11-2009 5:16 AM

that is definitely impressive. way to overtake what bj penn did by adding another 8 inches. i dont know too many people who can do this.

spearing 09-11-2009 6:44 AM

oops my bad i was at work and could not watch the video i just assumed it was about a big gap not the size of the pool. in that case that is Crazy..... cowering like a dog right now.

hawkeye7708 09-11-2009 9:21 AM

That's pretty damn impressive! Jarron Gilbert (college football player) did the same thing a few months ago and it was all over the internet as some HUGE deal. It made SportsCenter. Way to represent for the wakeboard athletes Ricky! <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXDSPbZ_OUw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXDSPbZ_OUw</a> (Gilberts

jsweat 09-11-2009 4:55 PM

that was crazy and to do it in his slippers, i dont know what to say. <BR> <BR>Ben yea jarron did his in 36" of water ricky did his in 44" ricky's is more impressive.

liquidmx 09-11-2009 5:05 PM

Keith Eloi's is out of control. I thought you meant with the tailgate down...haha.

extremeisaac 09-11-2009 5:42 PM

DAMMM that truck jump was insane!

62lincoln 09-18-2009 12:15 PM

thats my next attempt. is the truck jump, i tried in my friends lifted truck with the tail gate down and i did it so now i need to do it with a stock truck with the tail gate up. as soon as i do it and get it on camera i will upload it. but I WILL DO IT.

somebuddy 09-18-2009 12:55 PM

That will be tight! That will blow up on youtube and get some great exposure for wakeboarding.
