Yes! it is exactly what you would think. Thanks to Centurion wakeboards and iwake we were able to ride on this lake in the infield of the daytona 500 Nascar event. needless to say the people were super stoked to see some wakeboarding when they were waiting for those beasts to come around turn 2. There were plenty of riders, 500thousand fans and 1 filmer. me:D <BR>video coming soon! <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/775050.jpg" alt="Upload">

srock 02-15-2010 8:23 AM

Was there two years ago. Was great to watch the boarders because you cannot see the whole track from the back-stretch. <BR> <BR>Sure was a pee in the wetsuit kind of day.

michaelspsp 02-15-2010 8:42 AM

tvreeland 02-16-2010 7:51 AM

I was there last year and didn't know anyone was riding in the infield. I wish they would have announced it so people would have know what was going on.

holdsworth 02-16-2010 10:16 AM

Shoulda let me know you were gonna be out there. I was at the race at the backstretch and was wondering who all was riding... wish I could've come out and ride that would've been awesome!

srh00z 02-17-2010 6:03 AM

Can't wait for the video, I just checked your profile Norbi, I was wondering when you joined up. You joined less than a year ago and came on strong and have provided us all with some great wake and lifestyle footage. It seems like you everywhere and bringing us great new action all the time.

wakeworld 02-18-2010 9:01 AM

Another great video from Norbi... <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2755" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2755</a>

innov8 02-18-2010 2:26 PM

rkinsell 02-18-2010 2:41 PM

mcrider 02-18-2010 3:39 PM

Great video Norbi.

alans 02-18-2010 3:58 PM

Awesome Video Norbi. Can't wait to see more of your stuff!

westsiderippa 02-18-2010 6:40 PM

very cool vid norbi, thanks.

lfxstar 02-18-2010 7:37 PM

Very very cool vid norbi. Did you get paid for it by Centurion to film their riders? The even cooler part is that you got to goto the Daytona 500 and watch the race from where the race crews are. That's a once in a lifetime experience. Literally the Super Bowl of racing. I've never been to a nascar race but i heard even if you aren't a race fan, it is really cool in person.

wake2blake 02-19-2010 1:11 PM

awesome video that part around 6:40 was amazing

snork 02-19-2010 2:12 PM

Good video who was the first boarder? could been whole lot more spectators if the boarded during the red flags

poon 02-21-2010 10:25 PM

nice to see derek cookie in there.

breazy 02-21-2010 10:59 PM

Norbi that is far and away my favorite video you've done to date. i love the slow relaxed vibe to it, the fact that it isn't seizure inducing lol, and the fact that given the viewer knows that even as chill looking as the video is there's millions of tiny explosions propeling 4000 pound missles up to 200 miles per hour not far from where you are. this video = killing it to me. <BR> <BR>Side note- I saw them wakeboarding on tv almost off the screen. Good to see it was covered.

adam_fields 02-22-2010 1:08 PM

What an experience!!! This was my fourth year participating. I hate my foot was broken! It was torture to drive the boat the whole time and not be able to ride this year! <BR> <BR>Thanks to Centurion for licensing with Nascar and arranging this opportunity for us to put wakeboarding in front of so many people. Its events like this that will help new people find out about wakeboarding and see how much fun it is!!! <BR> <BR>Thanks Norbi for taking the time and effort to put this video together! <BR> <BR>Great times!! <BR> <BR>If you've never been to a race, GO! Even if you aren't a fan you will have an awesome time.
