Great find!

Just another reminder of how much I suck at wakeboarding

Shawn Murry had some sweet chops (Sideburns) then! Great to see the old video's of the pro's!

I quit.

I'll never be able to do 1/2 that stuff with my decent wake and new equipment.

My favorite part of that vid is that it's sponsored by Paul Mitchell hair products. I find that really funny for some reason.

Most of these riders are going bigger because of the altitude...... Rolling over here!

So many awesome things going on in that video......vests are optional, extended pylons, and a good 45 second Skurfer clip.

I had super suction bindings, why could I never land any of that stuff?

Or feel my feet?

Butch, "the classic wakeboarder". I'm a fan.

Awesome video!

I love how almost every single guy rails in for every trick. Not many w2w tricks going on back then.

Reez 03-27-2014 11:25 AM

Butch the old man of wakeboarding at the age of .......33? Those air tricks murray and andrea gayton throw are nuts. Some classic boards in there also.

Brings me back to when the neighbors showed up with a wake tech magic air and I was hooked! Thanks Paul mitchell

That was intense. That air railey out in the flats Murray threw when the boat was turning was awesome.
