how good was it in the WWC boat championships didnt see parks any where near the top. wanna know why?
okay there are two bouys at either end of the course in the rules it was said that "all althetes must pass around the outside of each bouy" they were also told this on the dock.
so anyway parks goes out throws down a sweet run and then doesnt go around the bouy, now he must be ignorant or just stupid i feel.
anyway he cracks a tantrum (not the wake style) and then goes onto the last change qualifiers.
in this round he obviously still has his head up his /\rse or just wants to P|ss off the judges so dilibratelty doesnt go around the bouy.
and once again still with annoyed at the judges throws a crappeee 360 for the money event.
im not into rider bashing but dam was he suffering PMS or somthing?

That is why I call Parks the "Outlaw of wakeboarding"

I glad he did that - that was a bad rule and it shows he doesn't care about winning the contest=he just wants to throw it down for the crowd
=Parks is a Pimp=

I was out there and watched Parks "throw" one of his runs by not going outside the buoy. He was outside the wake and heading to go outside the buoy, then right at the last second he laid on a monster cut to go between the buoys.

Reaction of the crowd was "oh no...." (as in why is he doing this). If he doesn't agree with the rules he should lobby the WWC instead of wasting judges and spectators time by doing stuff like that. And as for the run, doing it for the fans, it was okay but we were at the worlds, there are plenty of other guys there that can "do it for the fans" too.

Sorry to sound negative, but it brought the atmosphere down watching the guy that could quite possibly win the comp with killer runs act like a 4 year old kid rolling around on a supermarket floor cause he didn't get a lolly.

i agree that he shouldn't have done what he did but that rule is stupid and contests are for the fans to see the riders at that is whay they are out there.
