those 8 repetitive tantrums were riduclous. Very sick. I dislike the hand through the handle tricks though

Nick does all that on a regular line on a regular cable. You can see him doing front to blind and roll to blind with a hand in the handle in "Impact".

All pros do . Rode with Justin Savich last week and even after not riding for almost a year and a half the guy made everything look so damn easy.

Nicky D is a shredder fa sho,,, Even though he is far and away the best rider in the world on the cable, I am liking his boat riding more. By next year, he will be on top of the podium on the pro tour.

Dunno about next time around? The level of mens riding is really high. Without peer on the cable, work to do behind the boat.

Nick is sick for sure but I think Tommy Fooshee can hold his own against him on the cable

KDuff, your wish is my command

when he puts his arm through the handle, they are fronts. I mean you can call them S's because the discrepancy is so small in cable between the two tricks, but they are front to blinds. Still very very very insane. If it was any of us trying it, we would be in the hospital with a torn bicep hahaha

what separates nick on cable is his superhuman consistency. I think Sofer is an insane cable rider but he doesnt seem to do as well in comps as his skill would suggest.

I expect Nick to progressivelly move up in the boat comps, but like chris said, I also think the level of boat comp riding has risen several notches this year. Case in point look at Phil and Rusty, pretty much unbeatable last year and yet to podium this year, the bar has been raised.

The whole crowd at PWT Wisconsin went nuts when he hit an S-Bend to blind... it was HUGE.

I agree with Mark

I shot Nick and Lior and the rest of Hyperlites Cable team in the Phillies and Lior is my new favorite cable rider up there with Tom Fooshee, Nicky D, Rob Mapp, Donald Shelbrick and Lidberg

When cable get's huge and can support more freeriders Lior will be at the top of the list he has a style no one can touch!
