Jesus Christ. Dude's killing it...

kristian 07-21-2010 4:14 PM

The derome brothers never cease to impress. That was nuts for one set!

brhanley 07-21-2010 4:15 PM

Damn, dude gets some serious pop...that looks like a wake-to-wake 10 coming in the near future.

bbr 07-21-2010 4:18 PM

Holy crap...that was dope! That back 3 tantrum was legit! Very impressive to watch.

liquidmx 07-21-2010 4:28 PM

Agreed poser...sick indy moby dick there.

jonori 07-21-2010 6:25 PM

That is some crazy impressive riding.

ehwake 07-21-2010 7:01 PM

nice.....not a bad rail shredder either...http://www.unleashedwakemag.com/?p=656
congrats Raph!

the_bum 07-21-2010 7:21 PM

That was sick!! Sets that like he could be a contender up against Harley

wakestyle 07-21-2010 7:38 PM

as good as harley

cheesydog 07-21-2010 8:41 PM

wow very impressive, spins looking great

bennn 07-21-2010 11:08 PM

Raph is freakin killin it and is def one of the best boat riders out there now... but come on man ;) Haha

Crow 7 looks doable to me... waaaaay too much time on that crow 5 :)

jarrod 07-22-2010 8:19 AM

"as good as harley "

That's what I thought too. Techy, big, clean, and stylish.

Very impressive.

txwakerider14 07-22-2010 8:42 AM

I would say almost as good as Harley, he was missing a regular hs 9 of the wake as well as taking his heel mobe to 5 and not to mention kgb5. Not take anything away from Raph dude was straight killing it. But I wouldn't say he is as good as Harley

wake77 07-22-2010 9:23 AM

OMG, Ralph doing work.

jarrod 07-22-2010 12:29 PM

Heel 9 was the first trick he threw.

Do you know a lot about Ralph's riding? Or are you assuming that what you saw in the video is everything trick he has in the bag?

behindtheboat 07-22-2010 12:43 PM

ts back 5 w2w. haven't seen many people do that! Wow

fredlap 07-22-2010 12:58 PM

He's coming or he's already there! lol
He's awesome! I'm from Quebec too and I know how summer is short! It gives him a lot more credit!

txwakerider14 07-22-2010 4:57 PM

Actually the first trick was a cab 9, which is what pro's do if the can do w2w hs 9's few can do regular hs 9's w2w. I am assuming alot about his riding your right, but correct if I am wrong have you heard of any other person besides Harley landing w2w hs bs 9 or Switch KGB 5. I could be wrong but I dont believe Raph does blind pete either. Not to take anything away from his riding it was AMAZING the flat spin ts bs 5 was ridiculous, but that said, trick for trick i think Harley will come out ahead

acerock88 07-22-2010 6:36 PM

I haven't seen Raph put down as many really big tricks off the wake as I have seen Harley hit, but Raph is pretty close. He is also one of the five best guys in the world on rails right now. Didn't he just win Wake the Line? I would like to see where he would rank among all other pro riders in terms of total tricks if you take into account rails, probably pretty high.Anyway, awesome vid.

adamsilcio 07-22-2010 6:58 PM

correct me if im wrong but was that a toe back 7 off the double up at the end?

jsweat 07-22-2010 7:10 PM

you're right it was definitely a toe back 7

dlwsrider 07-23-2010 12:35 AM

That was straight dirty. Toe back 7 was nuts.

Bhamripper 07-23-2010 9:55 AM

anybody know what song that was in the video?

jsw 07-23-2010 11:55 AM

hot damn it.

bbr 07-23-2010 12:22 PM

I've watched this vid like a dozen times and I'm more impressed every time I watch it. That flat toe back 5 he does is dope.

Song title is Konichiwa Bitches, by Robyn.

supernatural 07-23-2010 7:55 PM

Best 1 set video since Norbi's Harley vid.

andrew_moreton 07-23-2010 9:28 PM

Must be that board if Harley and Raph were both using it...

mossy44 07-23-2010 9:38 PM

what trick is that at the 45 second mark?

supernatural 07-23-2010 9:48 PM

Moby dick 5

waterdork88 07-23-2010 10:01 PM

That very easily could have been a winning run at the PWT. Not taking anything away from Harley, just saying that its always anybody's game.

Bill_Dad 07-23-2010 11:31 PM

Raph is an absolute sick rider, this guy has so much style and is such a nice guy infact his brother ollie is also a great guy, he is definatley a top contender for the Pro mens now.
