Just wanted to say big props to AJ Racinelli for making the move over to Gator boards! This kid is blowing up fast nice to see him riding for Gator, cant wait to see what he does in the 08 season! Loved watching him land his first whirly 5 behind my boat, then stick in a contest the next day to take the win in MN!

Congats Bro! We will have to ride soon!

Check it!

Hate to see him leave HL, but wish him the best on his new team.

Ya, I agree...hate to see him leave Hyperlite, he is an awesome rider and wish him the best on his new team.

Anyone know the reason he left hype?

Just like all riders who move companies, the deal must have been better than what he was getting at HL.

to be riding side by side with the Vandall is good-enough reason alone ;)

Talked to Aj today, he was out riding with Randall when I was on the phone with him! That must suck! He is super stoked to be part of the Gator team, he is currently riding the Harris board and the Gonzalez Closed toe boot.

If only we could have him for O'brien.....

why would randall be an excuse for aj to sign w/ gator?? would aj not be allowed to ride w/ him if he stuck w/ hyperlite?

If you are on the same team as another rider, you often have more opportunities to ride with members of that team (photo shoots, gear testing, etc).

I think people are tongue in cheek when they comment that it would be "an excuse to sign".

Are you having a bad day Joe?

in some ways, that's true, for team shoots or events. but more often than not, riders will ride w/ other riders no matter what team they're on. take harf and malinowski for example. neither are on the same team, but they ride together all the time.

and no, not having a bad day at all.

Mike and Joe, you both have your points
correct me if i am wrong, but don't harf and malinowski live on the same lake... or practically the same lake? If so Location probably trumps team in this situation of riding together time. But there has got to be something emotional about being a brother on the gator team (or any team if you wish)...

... haha... i almost wanted to edit that, "emotional" haha... but in a way i am serious... small way... I think you all can kind of get my drift?

emotional...haha! should've trumped it!

just kidding man. yeah, i catch your drift.

Harf and Rusty dont ride for the same board company, but they do both ride for Fox.

Congrats A.J.

True...and AJ may like that a couple of the riders live in his area (So Cal -Ricky and Randall)...plus isn't the GB factory in Murrieta now?

Either way, regardless of who sponsors him, I enjoy watching AJ ride and wish him the best.
