Dave, how's that z3?
 
I haven't seen much about the z3, from what I did see the wake looked big and clean. I feel like theres been so much buzz about the g and star that things like the z3 and x30 have been swept under the rug.

So Dave, how's that z3 working out?

It's been great. I just wish I wasn't so busy and I was able to get out on it more. This has definitely been the craziest summer as far as travel goes for me. Yes, the wake is great. In fact, the photos we shot of Randall Harris and Chad Sharpe were behind this boat. We should have some video of it up soon to give you an idea of what the wake looks like when it's pretty much maxed out. These guys seriously loaded it up!!

With or without ballast?:D

here is some perspective

simplej 08-10-2012 3:15 PM

That last photo is wow... He's just so good

The wake looks like a massive version of the rzr. fwiw.

Man that thing sure does look like "a ****box that throws a mediocre to poor wakeboarding wake" ;)

In all seriousness though.. Randall Harris is kind of good

Awesome! Looks like he's just out there having fun! Top secret board brand or something? Just noticed the black rectangles...

impressive the lengths people will go to in order to make it appear as if they are practicing safety and sound judgment.

great boat. great wake. great rider. great shots.

jeff_mn 08-13-2012 5:10 PM

damn

timmyb 08-15-2012 5:17 PM

Thanks for the heads up on the board, guess I could have figured that out with a little research on my part...

He's referring to Randall not wearing a vest in the pictures.

Why in the world is that guy wearing a hat, t shirt and shorts with a belt...while on a wake board???

Is that the style in California?

08-15-2012 6:02 PM

Nothing wrong with the belt part

It's for that "fresh off of the dock" type of look. :D

johnny_defacto 08-15-2012 7:03 PM

lol at "that guy". murphy, I know you know who that is.... but c'mon, that's Randall Harris and if he wants to wear a pink skirt when he rides, I will still watch him cuz he slays it.

Not when you're sinking upside down in the water looking up at the surface.

tampawake 08-16-2012 7:19 AM

Its because its mother f ing VANDALLLLLL. Take all that stuff off and name 3 other riders that are close to him in style? There are plenty more technical but none that make riding look so fun and so good! Oh and met him with my kids and could not have been a nicer guy!

tdc_worm 08-16-2012 7:33 AM

his riding speaks for itself.

after re-thinking it, maybe the shirt is a nice touch if somebody insists on riding without a pfd. it could possibly mask the fact that he isnt wearing a pfd, and hence keep from influencing his fans to emulate his behavior....maybe his fans will just throw t shirts over their pfds...

on another note, i wonder what an attorney would argue is the responsibility of Tige and their sponsored entities (in this case RH and WW) to represent their products and associated activities in a manner which minimizes risk. after all, when somebody gets hurt, you know the attorneys are going after the deep pockets.

timmyb 08-16-2012 8:15 AM

Back to the Z3...got any more pics David?

murphy_smith 08-16-2012 8:17 AM

I am sorry if you took my comment and question as an insult. I honestly did not know who that guy was - and really have not followed the pro wakeboarding scene is about 5 years.

I was not insulting what he is wearing, just asking if that was the style?

Yes, I think what he is wearing is a bit out there....but it was not an insult to him or what he is wearing.
