There's no proof that he landed that, the video cuts out before he rides away from it!


Just kidding, sweet move!

Thats insane, if he could connect every move he would be pro for sure (unless he already is). I hope I can become as god as him.

He went to Flordia with some guys from here and competed in the Junior Mens division. He got 3rd in his heat :-(

That video was taken after all day of riding/lessons. He was hitting 9's consistantly all day.

Are you watching the video?? he throws his fist up to cheer after riding away.

Skippy is damn good, he is progressing exponentialy. They are out 4-5 days a week in the LSV....almost 600 hours on their few month old boat.
Old    gw_mark            07-16-2004, 10:53 PM Reply   
Very good, no question about that, especially the time committed to riding, bound to get good with that kind of dedication.
So Rich, gonna answer the age question? Got a theory about age and fearlessness.
Old     (rson)      Join Date: Jun 2002       07-16-2004, 10:56 PM Reply   
I am uhueemmmm, 29

Skippy????? 24-25?
Sasser about the same, maybe 26
Old    gw_mark            07-16-2004, 11:05 PM Reply   
Wow I was thinking 18 or 19, that is way cool, I hope he can keep up the pace and in no time maybe he can make the pro tour, mad props.
Thanks Rich.

Sheeeot, I can't even get the riders name correct I am not even going to try for the tricks.

The boat is a 2004 Wakesetter LSV, Qmls, lounge between driver and passanger, and full sac in front. He was at 85 out and going 23.5
