this guy just absolutely kills it

I like how Rathy's latest videos have been featuring a healthy dose of cable riding. I know there are a lot of boat guys out there who kill it on the cable but don't show off that part of their skillset much. Harley Clifford comes to mind. When I saw him ride cable in Oakley's summer video, I was like, "Damn, give me more of that!"

Hebrew, I don't think they show off that part of their riding because cableboarding is a completely different sport and is no way whatsoever related to wakeboarding. Apples --> Oranges. Furthermore, one does not want to be misconstrued as a cablewakeboarder when their identity clearly identifies them as a wakeboarder, and vice versa. I mean can you imagine the confusion a viewer would have if they were forced to watch two entirely different sports? It would be like watching a roller derby/croquet video, the differences are simply too vast. Personally I am continually flabbergasted that cable riders are even able to stand up behind the boat, wake riding is such a different sport and clearly superior.

That being said, Rathy is clearly a revolutionary, or bi-polar.

**** your sarcasm. Why are you being such a dick? I'm not hating on anyone or taking sides on this childish "boat vs. cable" debate that you seem to be satirizing. Check yourself!

Haha here we go again with the whole boat vs cable crap.

stephan 04-05-2012 8:11 PM

Simmer down there friend. You posed a rhetorical question, I gave an answer, admittedly dripping with sarcasm. I fail to see how I was being a dick, just as much as I fail to see where I implied that you personally are taking any sort of sides. I saw your post as an avenue to voice my (fairly obvious) opinion on the boat v. cable avenue in a humorous manner. Sorry you took it personally.

TheHebrewHammer 04-05-2012 10:24 PM

Fair enough, but I never posed a question.

Prototype Byerly park board? (1st video)

Nice to see someone actually doing nose & tail presses that are as real as they are on a snowboard in my opinion. No doubt in my mind that if someone did a comparison on that, wake would turn up legit. Also, seems exempt of getting on the wakezeach site. Nice to see Rathy.

Love how he is doing osmosis tricks in all his new vids. Those osmosis tricks are just sooooo nasty.

Bam6961 04-07-2012 11:26 AM

i don't think its a proto type, to me it looks like the blunt with a different graphic. but it might be who knows... in two other pic/vid he had a board that two complete different graphics on both sides, so it seems scott's letting him do some custom stuff. for instance his double flip off the kicker vid.

after watching the video a few weeks ago i asked him if it was some type of hybrid prototype and he told me it was just a blunt without the graphic.
