He's definitely incredible.


its been too long since the last harley vid.
but after seeing all the heat he got.
I had to do it.
and now that he s back in orlando it was easy and great to tag along for a quick set and shoot it up!

Wow. This kid has the most unf**kwithable bag of tricks I think I've ever seen. Nice, Norbi.

Indy T2B at 2:40 and 2:50 was insane. Made me say "wow" out loud to myself.

This is seriously insane. I don't even know what to say: this coming from a guy who's seen A LOT of wakeboarding in his life. The tech but then the huge t2tb and crow mobe. I saw this video for the first time last night @ midnight and I think I've watched it 15 times already.

words cannot quite describe the display that was just put on...maybe one day I'll be able to make heel 7's and kgb 5's look like childs play too!

...but I doubt it

Switch KGB 5, Mobey Dick 5, Back mobe 5, Blind Pete, Whirley 7 and everything else all in one set! Harley is looking unstopable. I watched him take a set a couple weeks ago in Orlando and he only fell twice. Started the set with a toe 9, then Sw toe 9, KGB 5, then Sw KGB 5 all on lock, crazy consistant.

Harley is being very irresponsible not wearing boardshorts in this vid. How is he supposed to float if he takes a bad fall!?!
Old    Jason (jason95gt)      Join Date: May 2006       04-11-2010, 7:34 PM Reply   
That tantrum to blind was HUGE. I think it was bigger than Lyman's from a couple years ago. KGB 5's were sweet too. That fall at the end was a good way to end the video and look very bizarre. Nice filming like always Norbi!

norbi, was that behind an xstar? i could tell that it was a mastercraft but am wondering if it might be the x25?
Old    Mark (mofreestyle)      Join Date: Jan 2006       04-11-2010, 8:37 PM Reply   
Tim- Every X-25 I've seen, which is only a few so far, have a walkthrough on the sundeck. The vinyl pattern is different than that as well so I'm guessing that's an xstar.
Old    Brent Boucher (supernatural)      Join Date: Jan 2008       04-11-2010, 9:26 PM Reply   
It was on Lake Holden for sure, so it was either his or Nicola's xstar
Old    Woa Wake (woawake)      Join Date: Mar 2010       04-11-2010, 10:09 PM Reply   
Is Harley the best "WAKE" rider in the world? It seems like the only thing he is missing is a massive spin like a 1080 or 1260.

Didn't look like an X-star wake. Although, I guess if you get the wake to roll over like that if you tried.

That was a front to Blind! MAD MAD PROPS ON THAT HARLEY!!!! Bringing it back Shaprio Style!!!! Hell yeah!!!!!!

Well I have to put this claim out there, Harley is hands down the best wakeboarder in the world right now. I cannot believe he got so much sicker over the winter! WOW!! That KGD 5, MASSIVE Nose 9 off the Dud, Whirly 7 like it was nothing! GOOD LORD!

That could have just been the best riding video section of all time. Absolutely insane. He just might be the best wake rider we have ever seen...and that is saying a lot.

I agree Eubanks.... probably the best riding in an edit I've ever seen.

NO KIDDING!!! I love how he finishes the trick so early and brings it WAY up, that is why I think it looks so clean!

Yup.... Basically mindblowing. I'm sure there are other riders watching this MF'ing him right now. Ha, ha, ha.

Nice, Harley. Killing it.

Looked like a massive X-Star wake to me. Meaty.

I find it really funny you see all these wake companies go out and spend good money on making videos and put a lot of time and energy into making great sections, and this kid goes out with the help of Norbi and just throws down the most insane 3 minutes of riding I've ever seen. I'm not knocking all the sweet videos that are out now but this section seems to have it all for me, and was made with no weird angles, no stupid animations, and great tricks.

A-Dub, it costs money to fuel the helicopters and chase boats, take trips, and support riders. I really hope the full length video doesnt die. I see wake videos as more than just tricks, its a piece of art.

I get it, I was just adding to the points of a full length video, and why online snippets may also be so popular.

Like Henry said though, maybe all the exotic locations and heli shots aren't needed if the riding is good, and up to date. The first DEFY trailer I saw had more shots of the helicopter itself than any riding. It's cool and major scale, and I hope it doesn't die either, I'll still buy them, but to do heli type shots just because is starting to become the norm

i can tell you that norbi isn't using a camera that you just pick up at best buy, so money definitely still goes into making sick videos.

Yeah Kyle's right.
Ive been making movies for a few years now and over the years I obviously had to keep evolve with my filming and my equipment.
It all depends on how long you've been in the industry, how long do you want to stay a part of it, what your goals are and who's your audience you're trying to reach. I'm just putting the pieces together and I'm trying to always get the latest and best coverage of the latest gnarlieness out there.
so far Im loving it and I cant wait to see where it takes me.
I cant stress it enough how happy and fortunate I am to be where I am and just thinking back to all the places I got to visit because of what I love.
puts a smile on my face everytime.
Love it !

That wake was one of the biggest I have seen. You know it is slammed when it completely washes on one side and it does not even affect the tricks. Definately bigger than a tournament wake. VERY entertaining.
