The innovation, and creativity being brought in the sport I think is beyond sick!

Sick Edit Raph, Justin, and Jonathan. You guys did it again!

Mind blown for sure.
simply incredible

i cant imagine how many times he must have had to hit those rails and the tied up can and.. and... to get it all put together... that or he is just that good. only saw a couple of crashes that were thrown in the end.

i had to pause the video to see how hard he was coming down on that pipe rail.
check the reverse flex on that board.

Yup, saw this yesterday. This is as revolutionary as Parks on that original sketchy pointless setup. Your watching it happen, but don't believe it's possible. Gigantic frontside wall ride to Indy tantrum, psssshhh!

I was hoping to be the first to post this, but y'all beat me to it. Insane! Even the wake riding in this one was next level awesome.

All the more proof why he won wakeboarder of the year, he is sick at everything!

Here's what I bet was said the day of shooting that video:

Rail Builder: "Hey Raph, is this rail sketchy enough?"
Raph: "Not nearly enough. Hike it up about 4 more feet, make sure it shakes when I ride it, and only use parts from the side of the road."
Rail Builder: "You got it, Bro."

A few hours later, we have this great video. It looks like cable riding is developing a bipartisan community of riders just like boat riding did. Video VS.Comp. I like 'em both! Keep up the good riding, Raph!

Some of those rails were so sketch, and he murdered every one of them. Absolutely amazing.

crap that was incredible.

It sure looks like cable boarding translates to a bunch of really cool rewind stuff behind the boat

The tantrum off the wall ride was sick and I liked that Rope rail thing.

I didn't see a single Zeach in that film! So i hope this doesnt end up on the wake Zeach trash site.

Reminds me of the 3 shred town guys a few years back. Doing some of the most sketchy rails gaps etc. except this was allot more gooder! (yes gooder)

Yeah, that was totally insane. The only possible zeach I saw was at :56, but I don't even care. It was mega pressed.

It would be awesome to see an edit of Raph hanging with Shredtown. I can't even imagine what might go down.

Reminds me of some of the stuff you could do in the Shaun Murray video game years back. Except he actually does it. Awesome video.

Watched it, then brought it into the living room for the family. Everyone was blown away. Really wish he had that wall ride to whirly, but the entire video was just insane. Anybody know where that was? Does Raph have a private lake on the side of the highway next to a rest stop?

one of the best web videos I have seen. Raph shreds both rails and wake incredible.

The Deromes have their own private lake beside the highway. It's equipped with a system 2 and has lots of room for the mxz. I think they even own a go kart track there

I love that this video is so damn good that it is immune from the style and safety police. No cries for life jackets or questions about Raph's attire... just shock and awe at the riding... exactly how it should be

It looks like he was riding a Watson Classic 134 (orange) behind the boat, can anyone confirm? How big is he? Seems like kind of a short board to me but based on that video I obviously have no idea what I'm talking about. Maybe that's why I can't do 1080s and double flips, my board's too long..

In general though, it seems like all the board manufacturers have gradually widened the stance ranges on all their boards over the last few years. Used to be you had to go with one of the longer versions of a given model to get a decently wide stance (maxed out). But nowadays does anyone find themselves going back towards shorter boards since the stance width is now available there as well?

Also the narrower binding base plates have contributed to wider possible stances, but mostly this is just a cheap bump.

The wall riding was crazy. Reminded me of some stuff gabe lucas was doing a few years back. Raph is on another level right now.

Has anyone ridden the 2012 flx and could compare it to a slingshot? Im thinking about getting the flx but idk how the landings would be with a three stage rocker opposed to a continuous?
