wakezeach.com
 
Has anyone seen this site? I just came across it. Pretty harsh and they have every pro on it.

www.wakezeach.com

skiboarder 12-28-2011 8:32 AM

Zeaching is like Tindy. Everybody does it, but no one wants to admit it.

It goes back to the, "You cant do it on a wake/snowboard because the trucks get in the way"... If the trend of anti-zeaching catches on like it has in snowboarding, wakeboarders are sheep.

Cisco 12-28-2011 8:52 AM

"a zeach is any boardslide or fifty-fifty that is crooked or turned"

http://wakezeach.files.wordpress.com...12/1.jpg?w=479

Geez, I thought that looked cool. I'm glad the 'Legit Police' saved me from taking the wrong path in life.

simplej 12-28-2011 9:02 AM

Wow.
Zeach really?
Get off yobeat unless you actually snowboard.
No one does tindys.
That is the worst explanation of a zeach ive ever heard. A zeach originates from smowboarder zach leach doing smith grands, which cant be done properly on a snowboard because you have no trucks so every gaper on the planet does them because cant do a proper 5050 or boardslide on a rail and end up in limbo between the two.
In short keep both feet planted over the rail on your. 5050, 5-0, and nosepress. Otherwise keep it 90 kiddies and dont swivel.

But dont call it a ****ing zeach unless youre snowboarding.

skiboarder 12-28-2011 9:37 AM

I don't know half of the words you just used.

diversity 12-28-2011 10:21 AM

Its because of people like Cisco that wakeboarding has absolutely no standards.

kamighazi 12-28-2011 10:29 AM

whatever that kid is doing in that picture: i like it, and i will certainly be trying to do it next time i'm on rails

yeahhh 12-28-2011 10:41 AM

thanks simple, and ski boarder, get some education of where your wakeboarding has been influenced by.

but i will still call it a zeach in wakeboarding

yeahhh 12-28-2011 10:45 AM

wakezeach is pretty much a copy of harshzeachtoscorpion,
but for wake, relax everyone and take a moment to laugh at
the sports we love.

skiboarder 12-28-2011 11:27 AM

Yeahh, I have been wakeboarding for a little while.

When I said, "You cant do it on a wake/snowboard because the trucks get in the way..." I mean't that there is not a good reason other than then cool police said so. I was poking fun at the arguement commonly made against tindy. I have no idea where Zeaching came from (I guess I do now). I was also making the point that I do not agree with it in snowboarding and that it is trend that wakeboarding would be silly to follow.

It is not nice to call someones style lame. No one is too cool for school.

Thanks ..
I guess ill call backrolls wildcats, off axis spins corks, whirly birds rodeos now and garbage rail riding zeaching.. Makes alot more sense that way right?

dont tell me to get educated, and most certainly dont use the term zeach if you dont even know its snowboard roots... If youre not snowboarding your not zeaching end of story
Wakeboarding isnt snowboarding so stop trying.

diversity 12-28-2011 12:13 PM

Maybe if simplej followed snowboarding he wouldn't be zeaching and grabbing tindy everyday.

hco 12-28-2011 12:30 PM

Naturally a bunch of teenage kids start talking **** about pro's and their cover shots. Where's yours boys? Oh thats right, you don't have any. Didn't know it was 'zeaching' when people are pressing a rail. Words can't even describe how ridiculous you children are.

diversity 12-28-2011 12:40 PM

Dan, it's because you don't look outside of the small bubble that is wakeboarding.

Pretty sure he was thanking you for the explanation, and telling skiboarder to get an education.
I really dont care if the term spills over, lots of other terms do too, who cares really?
The only way I can boardslide on a snowboard is if its a zeach, and my wakeboard nosepresses are zeached right out. In fact, its a point of pride how well I can zeach on any board.

benjaminp 12-28-2011 12:48 PM

Also, I'm pretty sure a bunch of those pictures are mid spin, therefore erego, no zeach, therefore that site is so totally not core, rad, legit, or any other stereotypical term for cool.

diversity 12-28-2011 12:54 PM

If you spin on rails, you are not core, rad or legit Ben Wilcox.

fgcuwake 12-28-2011 12:56 PM

Anyone who gets upset over this needs to chill! if you cant read that website and laugh and realize someone is trying to create a parody, then you are way too defensive of wakeboarding.Proof: as Ben above said, many shots are mid spin, no legit claiming rider would post those pics and claim zeach. How about, do what you do on the water, if it's a zeach/ tindy/ whatever else it may be, let some disturbed person analyze it and waste their own time hatin'! BOOM!

simplej 12-28-2011 12:59 PM

Yea, they are mid switch up, Nose presses cant be zeached only poked, poking out a legit nose press just a little bit is harder to do then popping straight on into a press. And yes i guess he is thanking me now that i reread it.

But my point still the same. This is site is dumb and zeaching is a term for snowboarders to diffentiate kids who think they are hot **** but suck.
This and i am a 40+day a yer snowboarder. My 80+ day a year riding friends love to give me crap for wakeboarding because they view us as riding the coat tails of snowboarding while we kill the environment in afflication t shirts and dubstep blasting. The less we copy the better off wakeboarding is, were just as bad as freeskiiers to them... Dumb sites like this arent helping

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 1:00 PM

For real. I would like to bust a big ol' tindy grab right in the face of the haters.

diversity 12-28-2011 1:03 PM

Weekend warriors can grab tindy and zeach all they want. I don't think anyone cares. If your having fun thats what matters. The problem is when a wakeboard gets paid to ride his wakeboard and gets covers and shots in videos of wack grabs and wack rail riding. How can anyone take the sport seriously if this continues.

yeahhh 12-28-2011 1:04 PM

haha. snowboarding or not, trick names the same or different, zeaching and tindys will always be bad style, unless its a danny harf tindy, tindy master right there

diversity 12-28-2011 1:05 PM

The reason your friends think you are a joke simplej is because you go around zeaching and tindying all day long on your wakeboard and probably on your snowboard.

fgcuwake 12-28-2011 1:09 PM

i guess we should just give up and stop supporting them! I mean adam errington is a pretty sh%&^y rail rider and all. I mean I look at that cover and rule out his non legit poked nosepress that he is so not stomping. I think i might wake up mid dream tonight and scream ZEACH!

What a ridiculous argument. The people who you want to take wakeboarding seriously, i.e. people who don't know about wakeboarding, aren't gonna give a **** about tindy grabs or "zeaching." It's not like your average sports fan will look at those moves and be like "damn, that **** looks stupid, **** wakeboarding!"

What's going to attract new people to wakeboarding is a positive, friendly, chill attitude, not your self-righteous posturing as the style police.

diversity 12-28-2011 1:17 PM

Damn Hebrew Hammer, I guess snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing had it all wrong them.

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 1:18 PM

I don't skate or surf, but yes. I just got back from Okemo. Whenever I go snowboarding, I'm struck by what a bunch of general douchebags snowboarders are, especially when compared to wakeboarders. I can't respect that attitude.

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 1:29 PM

Adam E's cover looks sick, as does Shawn's. If that kind of rail hit is wrong, I don't want to be right. The people who made that site are a bunch of pathetic haters and I'm tempted to laugh it off, but it's such a bummer to see that people are jumping on their bandwagon and legitimizing their insecurities. Grow some balls and ride how you wanna ride. If you think it doesn't look good, don't do it and keep your damn mouth shut.

simplej 12-28-2011 1:33 PM

I agree hebrew, if theses were snowboard covers they would be trashed but snowboarding isnt wakeboarding and wakeboard rails have different tricks than jibbing on your snowboard. Zeaches need not apply im wakeboarding, wakeboarding isnt snowboarding

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 1:39 PM

Ya man. We owe snowboarding a ton. It's an awesome sport and I love to watch it and do it, but there's no reason we have to get on our knees and beg for snowboarding's respect. If anything, we should take pride in the uniqueness of our sport and push to set ourselves apart so we're not riding in snowboarding's shadow.

simplej 12-28-2011 1:42 PM

P.s. go to mt snow if you want a better vibe from the shreds

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 1:47 PM

Ya, it's my favorite mountain. Carinthia has much better parks than Okemo anyway.

diversity 12-28-2011 2:02 PM

I guess wakeboarders are on to something, constantly looking for the easiest way to do something. Tindys and zeachs are just the easier way of doing grabs presses and boardslides. Thats the way to push a sport. Sick!

simplej 12-28-2011 2:18 PM

Youre right! So lets copy snowboarding and ride their coattails with dumb blogs!
Lets follow foot steps instead of innovate! Sick!

TheHebrewHammer 12-28-2011 2:19 PM

Haha, man, this guy is such a poser. Post a vid of your progressive, steezy riding, hater. Show us how it's done!

fgcuwake 12-28-2011 2:34 PM

diversity is clearly trying to get a rise out of people. Not always a bad idea but despite being legitimately funny at first read, your site, wakezeach.com sucks! take your negativity somewhere else, or if you're trying to be funny, it was a little funny at first but now you killed it.

diversity 12-28-2011 2:34 PM

^I'll probably keep it up for a month. I still like to visit http://harshzeachtoscorpion.blogspot.com/ for a good time.

bizzuck 12-28-2011 5:14 PM

Funny site. Funny until they kissed Watson's ass in the midst of dissing him. Ass kissing + BS = buzz kill. If you want to bust on somebody have the balls to do it. I mean, Watson's given enough material - Post a picture of him with those sunglasses that could double as the windshield for an electric car.

Hebrew Hammer:

Dude. Just shut up. I haven't seen you make a coherent statement in a thread. Ever. Stick with the "wHat BoaRd ShuD I Git!?" stuff.

Diversitity:

How did Cisco create the no standards? I see what you did there and I appreciate it. Nevermind the people who have had the limelight for the last decade and have been chilling for the past 8 years.

Wait... Maybe diversity is Dave Williams, who is also Cisco, who is also the guy running wakezeach, who is working with Watson to promote a new sunglass line that doubles as a windshield for electric cars.

This whole thing is hilarious. Except for Hebrew Hammer. He's a buzz kill.

tarek 12-28-2011 6:07 PM

haha that site is funny. There are some proper zeaches for sure. All Time!

Cisco 12-28-2011 9:39 PM

I always thought it would be cool if Cisco was actually a group of people writing under one alias. So Cisco would be called "them" instead of "him". But how could so many people be so stupid?? Am I right? C'mon, am I right??

diversity 12-28-2011 10:28 PM

Bizzuck and Tarek I like your style. Cisco beat it.

i could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era...

Cisco 12-29-2011 10:00 AM

that site sucks. tell your friends to visit wakenewsonly for the newest wakeboarding VIDEOS often a week before WBM, Alliance, or Unleashed.

Why check ten different sites for new footy when Cisco puts them all on one page?
