JJ 04-21-2010 2:23 PM

I was thinking how can this one be better than the last... but it was. Love the chase footy. Sick edit again Norbi.

rivrat 04-21-2010 2:24 PM

Awesome video, Awesome riding, wow that was sick

sidekicknicholas 04-21-2010 2:27 PM

the kid is a freak

eubanks01 04-21-2010 2:49 PM

If he can stay healthy this year, I don't know how anybody is going to touch him. Wow.

wakelab 04-21-2010 2:53 PM

Wow! Sic video, as usual Norbi!! Keep em coming!!!

txwakerider14 04-21-2010 3:01 PM

Can someone explain to me how he did Melon ts roll to Blind because that was RE-DICULOUS

dclarke 04-21-2010 3:13 PM

Just a great video, and some of the best riding i've seen in a while

norbiv 04-21-2010 3:15 PM

Yeah Jarrod he doesnt mess around :D
thanks Jessica, I'm glad you realized how it's different. its all about the angles.
Thanks Derry you know I will!
Brian, wasnt that method ? either way. he killed it for sure!
Im gonna go watch the vid again now :]]]

txwakerider14 04-21-2010 3:29 PM

Not trying to start a debate on this thread, but I have always been under the impression that A Method is a trick by itself since you grab then pull the board up and push the tail towards the boat and that you could only do Method Grabs and glides, but I could be wrong, your the man that was there and shooting it so you probably know better than me. Anyways what is the name of the song though Norbi?

txwakerider14 04-21-2010 3:34 PM

And either way he has to switch hands to spin the bs 180 in that trick. Can anyone else even do that?

innov8 04-21-2010 3:34 PM

Crazy sick riding for sure.

Norbi your edits are always great, thanks for supplying us with your sick Vids.

norbiv 04-21-2010 4:04 PM

I think you might just be absolutely right Brian:D either way Harley killed it and it was awesome to shoot.
the songs name is at the end of the video.
yeah brian he does need to switch hands. especially on that trick. nuts
thank you Jeff :] I'm trying my best 2 keep em' coming.

bmartin 04-21-2010 4:22 PM

Looked method to BS to me but a judge official I am not. Wow. Nothing looks hucked - his landings are soooo clean and balanced. Thanks for the treat Norbi.

norbiv 04-21-2010 4:26 PM

Brian : I looked it up for you, the songs called : The Knife - Neverland

norbiv 04-21-2010 4:27 PM

always, martin

mvanhove 04-21-2010 4:48 PM

Harley is such a fun rider to watch.

kyle_L 04-21-2010 5:18 PM

Norbs, is he going for a double cork on that toe 9 because that is what it kind of looked like. Went semi off axis on the first 5 then definitely purposely took it more off axis on the rest of the 3. I love how he is doing that Rathy style heelside spin really exaggerating the hips with almost a double corked style to it.

I will be the official judge and say that it is definitely method although method and melon are one in the same. A pete with that grab is a method pete, not a melon pete, but melon at the same time is used more in tricks with 180 variations ie melon off axis 180 or melon glide to fakie or melon 180 wing, whatever you like to call them :) lol where if it was an off 3, i would call it a method 3. Really makes no difference and both can be used interchangeably except of course with a true method grab or a method glide. Now if method was being used as a specific trick, then i have never seen a true method glide because it would pretty much have to look like a nuclear glide (rusty or lyman style) in order to get the back to the boat, where generally a method glide is just looked at as a hoochie glide except the board is at your side instead of over your head. I've tried to do some method glides where i get my back really turned but it generally just winds up to be more of a method grab without much glide in it. Looks cool but just hard to get it to float behind you like that for some reason unlike a nuclear glide which goes that way naturally.

jrich 04-21-2010 7:59 PM

is anyone else doing whirly 7's? and has it ever been landed in a comp? those are insane!!

cheesydog 04-21-2010 8:02 PM

sick riding and filming as usual!

Only thing that surprises me at this stage is we havent seen a 10 from Harley but I imagine it wont be long

waterdork88 04-21-2010 8:10 PM

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dkygiX8txg 2:40, Phil has been doing that move for years... I've only seen him throw it in comp a small handful of times, but I think he might have to make it a standard trick with harley doing it aswell

andy_nintzel 04-21-2010 8:28 PM

I need to think about this for a few minutes.......i watched it like 10 times. I am not even sure any one understands what they are watching here......Let me think I will post what I talking about in a bit.

texasmoombav 04-21-2010 8:51 PM

WOW!!! Amazing video and Crazy Sick Riding!
Norbi thats one of your best for sure

wakesk8er2 04-21-2010 9:25 PM

If dan harf and phil soven had a kid, he would ride like harley. I don't know how anyone is going to beat him.

Yeah I know I quoted myself.

i watched this at least 10 more time.

What I meant by my comment was that this is that I dont even think any really realizes how freaking amazing this kid is. Yeah he killed on the tour, yeah he is a solid contest rider. But the level he is riding at is totally different than anyone else. Just look at the tricks he is doing with relaive ease, Grabbed Back mobe Five, Grabbed Blind petes, Whirly 7s, KGD 5's, W2W Heel Nine, TS BS 5s, Switch Petes, Clean and good looking Crow Mobe 5's, grabbed W2W TS 9s, Fronts to Blind, Mody 5's or hs bs off 5 whatever you wanna call it, Hell he even make typically ugly tricks like a Slim look good. Yeah they have all be done before but I doubt many out there have them all on what seems like "lock" like Harley. I honestly think that Harely is the best wakeboard in the business right now. I hope ever one realized the level this kid is at and he is only 17. If he stays healthy I dont think any one will be able to touch him on the tour this year. just look at the list of tricks I rattled off, imagine that being he's contest run. he's a freak!

captain_vilfo 04-22-2010 2:55 PM

You forgot to mention his switch and regular BS 7's and HS FS 9's! This kid is un-real once he nails a 1080 the rest of the wakeboard competition riders better watch out.

lives2wake 04-22-2010 3:16 PM

I don't recognize the Blind Pete. At what point (time line wise) does he execute one?

lives2wake 04-22-2010 3:18 PM

And wow!!! Crazyness Extreme!

norbiv 04-22-2010 4:12 PM

Justin are you sure you were watching the right movie ?:] its in there I promise you.
and his kgb 5 is a Switch KGB5. just for the record.
Harley = Sickness!

Bill_Dad 04-23-2010 1:34 AM

hey, a great thank you to Norbi for such an incredible film clip, the camera work and angles have taken it to a new level, look how good he has made Harley look.
Amazing tricks

dizzyj 04-23-2010 1:36 AM

can someone label the tricks? I cant tell what any of those are

bradmo42 04-23-2010 6:20 AM

-unbelievable. the only 'sketch' landing at all was the hsbs 7.. which seemed to even surprise him. he lands so relaxed EVERYTIME.

-well done norbi, well done. sick song for sure.

lfrider139 04-23-2010 6:37 AM

super smooth, excellent edit

mike2001 04-23-2010 9:43 AM

Nice edit!

I'd suggest you all just make a list of tricks he HASN'T landed in these clips, it'd be a lot easier (and shorter) than keeping track of everything he has.

norbiv 04-23-2010 11:18 AM

haha I'll let someone else do that lol

alans 04-23-2010 3:52 PM

Smoke and mirrors.... Norbi's editing skills are just getting better. I bet Harley can barely do a backroll, no one can really do all of those tricks. Or maybe Norbi is bringing clips back from the future. Either way, I have watched the video about 30 times.

gene3x 04-23-2010 7:33 PM

Showed it to a friend that doesn't know much about wakeboarding and they sat with their jaw wide open. lol Pretty F' in sweet.

My Question: Is that wake he is on bigger than what they ride on the pro tour? Wake size and shape definately comes into play. I know this from my big ol fat ass.

romes 04-23-2010 11:59 PM

melan is a grab method is a trick. you can't method grab something.

and the only method he did in that whole clip was a method to blind. i dont even thing he grabbed anything melan, except for that ts 3.

and i dig the hell out of that crail rtb....WTF!!!

andy_nintzel 04-24-2010 9:19 AM

sidekicknicholas 04-24-2010 9:23 AM

that list is just demoralizing

hayes 04-24-2010 9:59 AM

After watching this, I come to realize I really suck at wakeboarding. LOL....FML!

pureblue 04-24-2010 2:51 PM

Thanks for the trick list andy! I am having difficulty seeing the difference between the pete and blind pete. It looks like he can see his landing easier on the blind pete than the regular pete. What am I missing? 2:10 for petes and 3:14 for blind pete I believe.

pureblue 04-24-2010 3:17 PM

Ok I just looked up the trick definitions. Pete has the frontside rotation and blind pete has the bs rotation. It is still tough for me to see the rotations with the roll in there lol. I can only tell the difference at the end.

adamsilcio 04-24-2010 3:17 PM


supernatural 04-24-2010 10:38 PM

you dont see to many people doing blind petes.

fabs128 04-25-2010 3:05 AM

Danny Harf is damn good, but this kid has it all.

04-25-2010 3:03 PM

clearly a mobey dick 5

austin_the_wakeboard_man 04-25-2010 9:05 PM

when is the 1080 comeing i know he can get it:)

superair502 04-25-2010 9:32 PM

Nintzel, pretty close cept that was a Moby Dick 5 def not a back off 5 cuz a moby dick 5 would actually be more like an off back ole 9 and then there was Whirly Dick, not a Whirly 7 like parks hit in shafted.

dizzyj 04-25-2010 9:50 PM

damn. thansk andy!
