Just watched the video for the new 2014 X-10 and it looks like Rathy is riding for MC. Anyone heard about this?

That's a really nice looking boat! Liking the lack of decals.

Boat and surf wake look sick. Can't tell the wakeboard wake. Ever since rathy got dropped from nautique I always thought being the caliber of rider he is he would eventually end up riding for one of the big 3 again. Surprised you can switch sides with trim tabs like that?

i was wondering what ever happened to his MB deal. They made the announcement, and then that was the end of it. Never saw pics of his new boat, never saw him take a set behind an MB.

wondering how they did that 360 footage of the boat while it was cruising down the lake. Pretty cool camera work in that vid.

They did actually do one intro video when he first joined, and he did have an F21 Tomcat. But yeah, never heard or saw anything after that...and that was several years ago at least.

Obviously he had his knee injury and lengthy recovery. So that would explain a year or two, but he was back riding contests pretty much all year last year and still nothing.

I love the 20 something year olds in MC's ads that are used to target the buyers. Very little of the population in that demographic will be able to come close to affording that boat brand new.

They use the 20 year olds to target the creepy old guys trying to get the 20 year old girls on their boats

Yeah pretty sure he is. Ive seen pics of an xstar with big gold oakley O on the side that I think is his boat.

More then likely just a pole on a bearing mounted on the tower. It did make for some sweet shots.

I think the oakley x star is kept at his house, if you look on his facebook he's got it moored in his back yard.

Nice riding but I can't stand watching guys with no life jackets any more.

The swivel camera I think is a gopro on the end of a pole which is attached to a 360 roating hinge.
There are a number of riders filming with this technique with the pole attached to their helmet.
Looks pretty dumpy while you are riding but the footage looks great! In my humble opinion.

There is a depressing amount of powerturning in those MC clip, particularly the X-Star one.

He was riding behind an MC most of the time while with Nautique, that's likely partially why they dropped him. Any smart pro is going to ride behind the boat pulling the Pro Tour.
