different riding, extreme adrenaline?
 
These guys are grabbing onto rails?
maybe the future? and there is also a pro snowboarder there, he is actually a good wakeboarder.

nope, not the future.

Have yet to see a good snowboarder not rock when put on a wakeboard. Seen plenty of claimer snowboarders suck though

Calling that the future is like calling tweaked grabs the future. Its just another trick people are doing, its not going to completely dominate and revolutionize cable and rails. Mark McMorris is a friggin boss though, his snowboarding blows my mind.

The angle of the ropes on that cable seem really steep. I bet it's really easy to get plenty of air.

I would agree not the future. That said it's a good way to show how in control the rider is and how comfortable the rider is on what they are hitting.

It's probably more of a dorking around trick than the latest trend. I think there was a video a couple of months ago where a bunch of guys were doing the same thing at the cable in Orlando.
I think Mark McMorris was the Canadian jr men's national wakeboard champ a few years ago so he knows how to wakeboard for sure.
