The Stalefish 3, the TS front, Tantrum to blind....insane.

bbr 08-16-2012 6:35 PM

Yeah dude, he's one of my favorite riders out there. TOTALLY underrated for sure.

Scott Stewart Laird Hamilton of Wake
 
We have been so fortunate to see Scott ride and be part of his clinics. His teaching techniques are incredible and will take a novice rider to a much higher level quickly. His style is not suited for contest because it takes much more time to launch this big and he usually can only get 4 tricks in a run. If there was a big contest he would dominate. Follow him on FB and Hyperlite and look for a new board for him. Wow.

Anybody notice all the smoke comming out of that boat?

sippi 08-17-2012 6:41 AM

i'm sorry, but that wake is awesome. i don't wanna start the whole xstar vs g23 thread here, but i have yet to see a video of the G where i wasn't just totally impressed with the wake. That thing always looks sickkk!

skiboarder 08-17-2012 6:50 AM

That was absolutely boosting. Anytime you can execute a stalefish that nicely and follow it with a casual 360--you are up there.

Nice work. I can't wait to see more.

So I finally got to see the G wake in person last week.

At one of the places that I ride there was a G sharing the line and the wake is huge, bigger than anything that I have seen before even sacked out. I have no clue what his setup was just that it was big. There are multiple boats that run that same line completely sacked out and nothing compares to this thing. Had to take extra precaution going through its rollers not to bury the nose of my boat when picking up a downed rider.

jarrod 08-17-2012 7:11 AM

I noticed the same about the G wake. It was very big, very clean, and seemed to have a great shape to it.

sippi 08-17-2012 7:26 AM

yea it did. looks amazing.

Look at sunlight super guy. that's steam

BamaLurker 08-17-2012 9:44 AM

Huge!!!!! I'm pretty sure he could ride at the vandalls speed and length. What lake in bama was that. And what song?

bigpapaf1f 08-17-2012 10:09 AM

Ts bs 7 wow!!! Killing it!!!!!!

kamighazi 08-17-2012 11:57 AM

Can talk about that tantrum to blind for a sec. hesus christo, i had a hard time realizing that's what it was. that dude grabs his board, like street walker that aint got his money.

captain_vilfo 08-17-2012 12:07 PM

How can you not go huge on a wake that big is the real question lol

Tantrum to revert was SICK!

G23 wake is Actually waist high.

jessemitchell 08-17-2012 4:57 PM

He honestly looked like he was super short and small because that wake is so big compared to him.

jordanleininger21 02-27-2013 1:11 PM

Im a Mastercraft guy but that wake was HUUGEE!!!!

Andrew14 02-27-2013 1:51 PM

I might as well be playing ping-pong compared to what that guy is doing on a wakeboard.....freaking ridiculous!

hawkeye7708 02-27-2013 2:19 PM

BOOM!

You can actually see a few points where he's still so high after completing the trick he decides... "eh, another 180 won't hurt" or "i've decided I'd rather land with my other foot forward, let's switch this up"

Great video.

02-27-2013 2:23 PM

Can't wait to have Scott up here in MN for the MN Spring ride in June. I will definatly make sure to be in the boat for his contest passes.

Gnargnar 02-27-2013 2:49 PM

Makes my knees hurt......he's WAY up there

ralph 02-27-2013 3:43 PM

I'm not sure what the sport is called which I do, but he is wakeboarding.

johnny_defacto 02-27-2013 3:54 PM

Yeah Darren, after watching that video I have come to the realization that he is in fact wakeboarding.... and I am apparently skurfing.

deneng 02-27-2013 6:04 PM

Wow! That was fantastic..

Andrew14 02-27-2013 6:21 PM

Out of curiosity, if Stewart rode the Pro Tour (maybe he does and I've just never noticed) would his style of riding (go huge, some tech) not be judged as high as that of Harley and Phil's (super tech, W2W)? IMO, his riding is just as impressive as that of the tour big-shots....if not more impressive (I've never seen anyone completely dominate a wake like that - dude doesn't flinch/hesitate for a second and I have to think the punishment for coming up short on some of those moves is brutal).

jarrod 02-28-2013 10:06 AM

I never noticed his name up in the ranks of the tour. I think Dean is the only current 'go huge' rider that is able to make it work with the scoring system on the tour.

Andrew14 02-28-2013 10:29 AM

Thanks J-Rod. Yeah, seems like Dean Smith and to a certain extent, Rusty, are about the only one's with a "go enormous" style that get any acknowledgement by the current scoring system. Kind of a shame, IMO - watching the pro tour is definitely exciting and a good time, but would be nice to see some different faces at the top once in a while instead of it being the Phil/Harley show almost every weekend (both crazy good riders for sure). Hopefully some of the new guys (Dowdy, Shota, Steel, etc.) will be able to shake things up a bit this year to keep it fresh. However, I think the addition of the Big Air Comp at the PWT stops is a nice move - gives some recognition / opportunity for the riders with different style.

stephan 02-28-2013 11:41 AM

Back in the day Darin Shapiro and Mark Kenney were the guys with the idea of going huge in a tournament pass. They'd usually get in one less trick but would kill it on the intensity front. One of my favorite memories was watching Mark do a switch mobe 20 feet into the flats.

One thing I like about this video is that Scott recognizes the stuff he does is crazy and wears a mouthguard the whole time. I wonder what the story is behind that.

BamaLurker 02-28-2013 1:54 PM

Song and artist???? Anyone? Please!

Andrew14 02-28-2013 2:09 PM

Tyler - WOW, you got to see this go down in person? I'm sooooo jealous. Can you share what the ballast set-up was on the G when Scott S. was riding? I heard that for the Teaser vids that Nautique put out last year around this time for the release of the G, that they were running 1400lbs over stock ballast.

ironj32 02-28-2013 3:32 PM

For those who want to seem him live and in action, come check out the 2013 MN Spring Ride!

Correction: for those who want to see him and a ton of other stud riders throw down on an even more slammed out G23 - come to 2013 MN Spring Ride. :D

newwhit 03-01-2013 5:46 AM

nice riding. it made class a LOT more interesting.

He was on the tour, may have been 2 seasons ago, and he was not rewarded for his riding by making the podium. He told me Hyperlite was super cool with him putting out videos and riding the way he wanted to and not focus on the PWT and conforming to make podiums.

Andrew14 03-01-2013 7:08 AM

^^^ Matt - thanks for the intel. That's truly a shame that the scoring system on the tour does not recognize his style/abilities - maybe we'll see him in the big air competitions on the PWT. On the flip-side, huge props/respect go to Hyperlite for their outlook/response to the situation - nice to see that they are not all about the contests. Think that says a lot about them as a company.

wakekat15 03-01-2013 10:27 AM

It is indeed a shame. I was on the same team with him @ Wake Games a couple of years ago. He rode fantastic & didn't make it out of his heat. I was shocked, so I can only imagine how he felt about it. Great rider!

jarrod 03-01-2013 12:37 PM

I didn't notice the mouth guard. I know that Andrew Adkison wears one too after knocking a few teeth out with his knee. I was lucky enough to only split my chin open during my knee to face incident.

poon 03-01-2013 1:59 PM

I got a chance to shoot with Scott awhile back and I remember watching him and tripping out on how big he was going. Pretty insane. Best part about Scott is not only does he go big and rip but he is a good individual as well. A combo you don't always see.

Andrew14 03-01-2013 2:21 PM

J-Rod - are there certain tricks that subject you to a greater risk of the chin to knee wreck (maybe frontrolls?) or could it happen on any trick. I've spent some serious money on dental work over the last couple of years and would like to avoid any tricks that could potentially give me problems on that front.

Arun - great to hear that Scott S. is one of those good people/sick rider types......Murray always comes to mind when I hear about others out there.

xh2o13 03-02-2013 1:05 PM

I've been fortunate to enjoy many years of riding with Scott. I don't know anyone as passionate about wakeboarding in the world. He lives and breathes the sport and the kid has got incredible awareness… I know soon there will be some moves never been done before. I think Hyperlite is awesome for seeing his potential. I feel like his journey is much like Keith Lyman I just hope the sport backs him so we don’t lose another one of the best. I did like to personally thank Scott for helping me pursue my goals in life. He was huge in helping motivate me to get over my knee injury, he just a genuinely good man. I doubt the pro tour will ever recognize and reward his type of riding. My prediction is his videos will gain him his well deserved place as wakeboarding elite. Can’t wait to see what he does in his next video and his entire career for that matter. Keep it up dude nothing in life comes easy its clear from reading this that the people have spoken. On a side note the g23 scares my knees :)

MrShelley 03-02-2013 1:14 PM

This vid is impressive, but I still like this one better. HUGE.

Here is another clip of Scott from The Global Rider Search.

http://vimeo.com/14142610

jtiblier123 03-03-2013 2:46 AM

Also, super young guys, take note of the fact that he is getting that much air behind boats with far less weight than a G23 or anything like that. He can go that big behind anything. I saw him riding once from afar and thought it was Murray. I was wrong

Chris389 03-16-2013 10:01 AM

Cleanest style out likes to go huge on the water

xh2o13 04-24-2014 2:19 PM

My favorite rider, but I'm a little bias

norcalbordr 04-24-2014 2:36 PM

That seatbelt grab T2B was nuts

somebuddy 05-01-2014 1:08 PM

A lesson in how to progressively cut through the wake to maximize pop. He doesn't hold back.

ironj32 05-01-2014 4:24 PM

Super pumped to have Scott coming back up to the 2014 MN Spring Ride. He'll be coming up a few days early to do some filming up here. Rest assured that I will do my best to get a lot of good footage of him!
