Sick video. I love seeing the footage from double or nothing...always blows me away. Those double ups were stupid big, seeing that shot of Rusty coming in at the beginning then Watson coming in for his first one shows you just how huge they really are.

Sick. Rusty made that 10 look like it was nothing. Randall's method to fakie towards the end was so dope.

No one more fun to watch than Randall.

Very cool video. But, frankly, I'd like to see some riders cut from the list and others added. Im not really interested in seeing a guy huck double flips. Id rather see innovative spins, grabs, and flips...that doesnt mean flip as hard as you can as fast as you can.

Yeah I think we are approaching a shift...its been spin to win for years, now once people get to 12s, back 10s, etc, people will still throw new spin variations but double inverts could have a lot more potential for innovation. I loved Sharpes indy double ts backroll, stuff like that could be sick, or Watkins if he lands that double roll to blind. Nuts

Thanks for sharing. That was fun.

It was great to see Parks throwing down again. The double half cab has always been one of my favorites. The double mobe attempts were close too. The coolest part of Rusty's ten was the fact that he didn't even show emotion after he landed it. Harley's winning trick was awesome. I always thought that if AA had stuck that in the last few years, he would have won.

I agree Im loving the double flip variations, spinning is and always will be awesome but Im happy to see some focus go to new invert possibilities

I gotta agree, the doubles flip are flat out cool. Straight spinning without grabbing just isn't my favorite thing to watch.

Not wake, snow, and not saying wake should try and be them, it's just similar progression

I'm just excited that the envelope continues to be pushed every year from many different dimensions. Regardless of how you want to cut it, the fact that wakeboarders and snowboarders both stand sideways on a "board" will result in similarities between the two. I'm sure kiteboarders really have their gears ground when they're compared to wakeboarders.

The different styles of tricks that were attempted at DON I really believe shows that wakeboarding continues to diversify itself and the style of tricks that can done. The mobius style of trick continues to be pushed, the spins continue to be pushed, and now that double flips seem to have revived, it adds another dimension of "big trick" that can keep wake fans on their toes as we never know where the next new hammer is going to come from. Granted, some of these may be a bit extreme, I'll never use the word impossible lightly anymore, but I could see TS 2xBR to blind, fakie, TS double mobe, cab double, wrapped double... and with Trevor hansen sticking a wake to wake double, who knows where that could lead as what could be done in a tournament pass, without the aid of a double up. I can admit that I'll never be able to attempt these tricks, however the prospect that the sport is progressing so far and fast that these could start going down has me more excited about wake than ever.
