Nice shots man does he go huge on those 1080s. Looks like the boat might have a little bit of weight in it.

Love the shots, I like how you can see that he actually missed the handle before the last 180, (second from the last shot) he put his hand through the handle (its on his wrist) but still managed to get it back and stomp it. That is awareness for sure!

That wake is nasty big. Is that a X-star?

Yep, Xstar with 8 people and sacs everywhere. It was unbelievable! I'll try to post up the video I have tomorrow.

Wow, was that off the double up? I cant really tell if the boat was crossing rollers or not.

Yes, off the double up. I don't know for sure how much weight was in the boat, but based off other X-Stars I've been in, I'd say it was close to around the 5000lbs some of the guys on here run.

Maybe this will help to scale the size of the wake. Rider is ~6'.

yea man that was a sick day i was in the other boat with chad sharpe and brad smeele. Rusty threw a 10 when yall rode past us and came super close... I guessing he was 2/3 that day on 1080s? unreal. Brad Smeele got super close on a reg stance 1080 just popped the handle on the landing. And whats up with everyone saying Rusty is soooo huge I mean he is a pretty ripped guy but i wouldnt say he is SUPER tall or anything maybe 6,1 or 6,2 but i think hes so jacked he kinda stands hunched over haha. All the guys were super cool tho... Chad Sharpe was super cool as was Brad and /i actually was up in Lousiville eating at Chilis when rusty sat down at the table next to us... Great weekend!

About passing the handle...I rode with Rusty last season and here is a pic of him doing a 7. I think a lot of his spins he throws the handle to the other hand instead of 'passing' it. Maybe this is required for any faster spin variation.
