No, he is not getting Married. Still single <BR> <BR>No he did not buy a boat. Still wakewhoring <BR> <BR>HE landed his first 3's !!!!!!!!!!(at 80'&amp; 24MPH no less) <BR> <BR>Allthough I did not personally witness and have no video, I know Thane's style is only BIG so I am sure they were sweet. I am sure we will get video soon. I have good vid of some of his painfull (looking) big attempts so we can make a nice progression clip. <BR> <BR>Thane's progression from clumsy board slaping heelside only rider (no offense Thane) to a rider with some great style who only goes big in one short year has been really fun to watch. <BR> <BR>Not to mention he thinks "Rock n Roll is sooo Bitchen".

Congratulations Thane, TS or HS?

veganx 01-05-2004 4:53 PM

Congrats Thane! <BR> <BR>I seem to have lost my TS 3s. They were last seen June 1998 on Lougee Lake in MN. If found please return to 1465 West 33rd St. Minneapolis, MN. Thanks!

bluemalibu 01-05-2004 5:01 PM

ThaneDogg you stud! <BR>I was there to witness this event, yes indeed, Thane stomped three HS 360's on Wednesday, December 31st. The 3's were landed behind the Blue Malibu, the same boat that Thane landed his first backroll behind. <BR>Congratulations Thane, <BR>Geoff <BR>

socalwakepunk 01-05-2004 7:09 PM

Thane is da man! I got to ride with Thane on New Years day, and again on Saturday w/Troy. Not only is he landing those 3's, he's doing it with that T-Dogg mad style (kinda looks like a Shawn Watson or Aaron Grace 3)!

todd_g 01-05-2004 7:46 PM

nice thane dog <BR>I remember your first pull behind a real wakeboard boat.

buttacup 01-05-2004 7:56 PM

Nice job dogg, you look like you're pooping though in that pic or were you concentrating on hitting the 3's?

thane_dogg 01-05-2004 8:48 PM

Man, I got love. Thanks T-roy for posting that pic and giving me some props. I'd also like to thank all the gracious boat owners that have given me pulls over the past year. <BR> <BR>Sean - HS man, tried ts and they were pretty crappy. your profile pic is tight. <BR> <BR>Todd - sup, TURBO DUDE!!! <BR> <BR>Geoff - welcome to the discussion board...FINALLY! <BR> <BR>Jeff - thanks man. <BR> <BR>Lynsey - I was concentrating on both.

deepstructure 01-05-2004 9:26 PM

awesome my man. i'll definitely have to get soma those on vid! congrats!

kristian 01-06-2004 2:35 AM

Congrats Dawg!!!!

wakeboard_iraq 01-06-2004 3:58 PM

Congrats Thane - <BR> <BR>Tough trick - I have never landed one - lots of 270's and even a 450 (haha) but never a 360. <BR> <BR>I'm going to give them some more tries this weekend.

tahoe 01-06-2004 5:42 PM

Wow, that's really good for the 1st year ! <BR>Congrats on the 3 Dogg

blabel 01-06-2004 9:38 PM

That's cool. You seem to be ripping for only riding for a short amount of time. <BR> <BR>Once it clicks, the other spins should come easier. Congrats.

thane_dogg 01-12-2004 12:59 PM

been out 3 times since that magical day that I landed three 3's, and haven't been able to land one since. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

wakeworld 01-12-2004 1:07 PM

That sounds strangely familiar! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

jarrod 01-12-2004 3:08 PM

Thane. The exact same thing happened to me. I landed my first 3 360s in one weekend and then I lost them for about a month. I was so pissed. You must be going crazy inside. Are you just riding out of the trick without the rope?

socalwakepunk 01-12-2004 5:01 PM

Tell me about it! Lost my best trick in the middle of last summer, still fighting to get it back. <BR> <BR>Hey can I say congrats to another local ripper? Tim Jewitt no longer has a Toeside Backroll. Now he has an INDY Toeside Backroll! Good job brudda, way to tear it up!

deepstructure 01-12-2004 5:13 PM

wow tim, sweet! congrats. i can't grab any invert i do.

bbr 01-12-2004 7:28 PM

Stack, what's up? How did all the filming turn out.

deepstructure 01-12-2004 7:53 PM

good! but im still working on footage from previous days and for other projects. if you want to see anything specific (hehe) right away just shoot me an email and i will throw it up for ya.

bbr 01-12-2004 8:39 PM

Not really looking for anything specific, just the day as a whole. Your vids are always really good, just looking forward to seeing it all.

iewc_vp 01-13-2004 11:59 AM

Thanks Jeff and Chris. It felt sweet to grab it. I am working on a nose grab and a nuclear grab on that Toeside roll too. I am sure I could not have dont it if it were not for the INCREDIBLE wake of Jeff's `04 Super Air. Thanks for the pulls Jeff!

wakepaula 01-13-2004 1:02 PM

Way to go THANE!!<IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

tahoe 01-13-2004 1:22 PM

Tim - I think it had more to do with those "wakewhore" shorts you were rockin <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Hitting a ts/indy/br textbook perfect on your 2nd attempt was just plain sick ! Your riding has really progressed since I seen you ride last year, keep it up ! <BR> <BR> <BR>

iewc_vp 01-14-2004 11:02 AM

Thanks Chris <BR> <BR>No love for me Paula? So I was like yeah Whatever.

xtremebordgurl 01-14-2004 11:36 AM

COngrats to both of you! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

thane_dogg 01-30-2004 12:18 PM

ok, one magical day I stomped three 3's, then the next several times I went out they were all horrible. I must have had about 40 unsuccessful attempts since that good day. I even knocked myself out one of the 40 unsuccessful ones. Then, last Sunday I went out, and landed one perfect. I'm baffled. But it sure is a great feeling.

jarrod 01-30-2004 12:32 PM

The 3's can haunt you. Same thing happened to me for a while. You'll start getting them consistently soon.

dakid 01-30-2004 12:42 PM

Thane, just remember these things... <BR> <BR>1. Pop <BR>2. Pull handle at peak of jump <BR>3. Get handle pass <BR>4. Spot landing <BR> <BR>Concentrate on these, the spin will come, and everything will fall into place. It's just like when you were learning w2w jumps. Do it enough and it'll become 2nd nature. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by dakid on January 30, 2004)

bradb 01-30-2004 12:47 PM

I'll add to Joe's comments above: <BR>Don't throw the 3 with your head/shoulders... It will spin you off axis. To start the spin, just pull the handle in to your back hip.

wakepaula 01-30-2004 1:34 PM

Oh, I'm sorry! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>I missed that whole part about you Tim. <BR>I sould read the whole thread before I comment. <BR> <BR>Here comes some lovin... <BR> <BR>WAY TO GO TIM, YOU ROCK!!! <BR>

thane_dogg 02-01-2004 11:15 PM

Actually I got tired of pulling on the handle and pulling myself out the front so I threw all that common knowledge stuff out the window. I was thinking too hard, pretty soon I said to myself, "Thane, you 'tard, just do 180, pass the handle and do another 180!" and that's been working out pretty well. I landed a couple more today.

kristian 02-02-2004 12:31 AM

Yeah, to much thinking is a dangerous thing.

socalwakepunk 02-02-2004 8:55 AM

Good job my man!
