Colin Harrington with Oneill?
 
Not trying to start rumors about pro riders or anything but I saw a picture on facebook of Collin Harrington with Oneill decals on his board. Just wondering if he is with Oneill now because I thought he was really down with Quiksilver.

Quiksilver pulled out of wakeboarding in the USA.

what happened to colin harrington? he used to be all over the place in mags and then suddenly you rarely see a picture of him. its kind of ironic that it happened around the time he got his pro model.

I think is just embarassed because his board is a POS and had the lowest board sales in LFs history hahaha j/k. No idea about the board sales but I know that I have never seen anyone riding one anywhere.

But on a serious note, I think he suffered a bad knee injury last year and is still probably recovering from it. He is in one of the videos on chads blog from awhile back.

Actually it is a great board. I have a girl friend that picked up the 134 with lady-graphics and I took it for a spin and lit it up. I would love to try the 138.

It had a very mellow turn to toward the wake, but kept its speed well and had very good raw-pop due to its width.

I think the popularity for this board has more to do with graphics.

Collin actually has been really busy. Not trying to throw too much info out there.. but he did buy and gut and completely remodel his own house by himself here in Orlando. he is actually my neighbor now.. and before that he was super busy with Box of Fun. Im positive you will see more of him soon

Justin, yeah the graphics blow. It is like the old school trip but not as cool and there has not been enough footage of him riding the board to show people there is more to it than the graphics.

wake at quiksilver is gone from their website. bummer to see another company go. I think they still have a few people on product only deals.
