Cable Rat learning boat :) Video
After being a die hard cable rat for the last few years I made a commitment to ride boat more regularly in the last few months. Have to say its been a hell of lot of fun, and I appreciate boat so much more now and its even helping my cable riding!

One thing I found coming from cable, HS came MUCH easier than TS, still working on getting better pop.

Heres a little edit of the last couple months, its a work in progress but definitely gonna keep on pushing boat as much as I can

Respect! I love to see well-rounded riders, especially at your skill level.

youre throwing down. its really cool to see people riding an average size wake instead of the enormous ones normally filmed

Nice riding, you got a great natural style. Inspires me to learn all my base inverts and spins regular and switch. Back 5 is money.

great riding. You're adapting very fast

Great Riding! On your toe side you are bent at the waist.If you lock your hips and pop it will boost you like your heel side.

thanks for all the nice comments!

Loving boat so much right now, just feel like every time I go out there is so much to learn, so many things to tweak, dial grabs better, land smoother. Funny thing for me behind boat I like spinning way more than inverts, which is the opposite for me at cable. I think there is a lot more emphasis on style for simple things behind boat. Like a big lofty 180 with a tweaked grab feel sublime when you get it right.

hey robert thanks dude, yeh hard to not break at the waist on TS but working on it, gonna try some TS back rolls this weekend :)

You're like an older version of jimmy lariche!! i've never seen someone adapt to boat that fast besides him

cheesydog 05-31-2012 7:12 PM

ha ha thanks dude thats a big compliment, love lariche's riding!

The progression comes mainly coz Im so impatient, I set of a goal of a new to trick landed every sesh which doesnt always work out but it does mean Im always forcing myself to get a little better. Also leads to some big wrecks. Big advantage from cable is the muscle memory is there, its just all about the right pop.
