That's what they looked like the last time I saw mine..

David- you act as if his question is totally retarded! I also want to know why? Would you go on a wakeboard podium holding a snowboard?

wakerider111 01-17-2010 1:49 PM

was it part of the prize maybe? <BR>notice the sticker/print in the center. "Snow Basin 2010"

and we thought the woman's purse for winning in wakeboarding was bad!.. <BR> <BR>and...... heres a wakeboard, congrats

Looks like the Trophy to me, She is holding her board also....

"Is snowboarder Elena Hight holding a wakeboard on the podium at the Women's Dew Tour in UT?" Question answered, Did not ask why...

duffmangt 01-17-2010 4:26 PM

the guys got the same wakeboard...i saw it today and was wondering haha

Not a big deal to let the "why?" be implied? They get a silver trophy as well(see her other hand), but I'm not sure if one is for the tour and one is for the event?

why do wakeboards get given guitars? <BR> <BR>same concept imo.

Silver trophy with a miniature wakeboader on it lol.

I think its AWESOME that they used a WAKEBOARD as a Trophy, especially because snowboards HATE on wakeboarders all the time. That is Brilliant!

How can you say that snowboarders hate on wakeboarders when most of US are snowboarders in the off season?

andy_nintzel 01-18-2010 1:51 PM

Jason, <BR> <BR>I could go on and on and on about this, but Transworld and Snowboarder Magazine Routinely take pot shots at wakeboarding. <BR> <BR>For the record I too am a winter snowboarder.

Here is my take on different objects handed out at comps, at the Dew event if they gave a snowboard there might be a conflict of interest on board sponsors. Same with wakeboarding, "here's a Ronix board Trophy " Handing it to a Byerly rider that is on the podium..

Page 32? One of the drawbacks of winching into an urban rail is the "risk of looking like a wakeboarder" <BR> <BR>But it's true, you'd be hard pressed to find a core snowboarder who doesn't wakeboard and vice versa
