Who has been the highest?
 
Double up, kicker, etc. let's see pics!! I want to know who has been the highest. Doesn't matter if it's a pro or an average rider.

The late great Mark Kenney could boost with the best of them back when wake boats were basically converted ski boats.

Why not? The question is simply who has been the highest, not how they got that high. If the indian line doesn't count then double ups shouldn't either.

If Indian Lines count, just go back to the old video of Spray with Shannon Best on the Rixen. huuge back scratchers 25 feet up with sandal bindings on a directional board.

BTW, Indian lines shouldn't count. Double ups should. Not the same thing at all.

sidekicknicholas 08-11-2014 1:01 PM

Park's old indian line footage:

If indian line counts, then so does kiteboarding.

captain_vilfo 08-11-2014 2:44 PM

I seen Brad Riddick get some boost like that. He got close to distance traveled but lacked the G height. It is impressive to see from boat.

Bumpass1 08-11-2014 4:23 PM

Something tells me Randall has been the highest, and maybe not just on a wakeboard!!!

Can someone post the Randall method screen grab from Natural Born Thrillaz? Pretty close to the highest and possibly the steeziest at the same time

Can someone explain "indian line" to me? It's a higher tow point than usual at a cable park or what? Googled it but came up short.

behindtheboat 08-12-2014 7:38 PM

Yes, it's a shorter rope than normal.

andy_nintzel 08-13-2014 6:53 AM

Jay the best part of that pic is that its just Colin hitting the wake, no dub.

sidekicknicholas 08-13-2014 7:21 AM

Not the highest here, but still did its damage to the knees (and was without a double up).

Chad Sharpe?

http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/m...919/170414.jpg

joshugan 08-13-2014 10:17 AM

I seem to remember reading that Sharpe went the highest but didn't land it or maybe it was that Parks went the highest and didn't land it and Sharpe was second highest and landed it.

Sorry to add confusion but I'm hoping this jogs someone else's memory.

ATB0713 08-13-2014 11:20 AM

all i remember is that was a sick ass board. I think it was the TDF or TFG or something like that, back in 04 or 05...SIIIICK

I remember Park back in his hay day loosing his boots up and he would blast off double like the one I posted up, then would toss the rope and swan dive in the water.

denverd1 08-21-2014 8:54 AM

Chad Sharpe in double up contest. Beat parks out by a few frames. I forget what year it was
