Mitch,

You don't look like a "gooner" you looked stoked!

One question for you thought. I've always wondered how tall Murray was and it looks like you've got a few inches on him. How tall are you?

I don't know how tall Murray is but I would have to guess around 5"8

Yeah Joe is close. I'm 5'9" and Murray was much shorter than I when I met him.

Cool guy to talk to. Have to give him credit for being one of the few pro riders that can hold an intelligent conversation.

Shaun is a cool, down to earth person ran into him a few times and IMO has the best personality in the wakeboarding scene.

Shaun is pretty short, about what Joe says. I am 5'7" and he was shorter than me. He sat and talked to us for about 45 minutes towards the end of the show. He has a new tour that he and Gerry Nunn are doing. www.justridethebackyardtour.com

Besides talking to the adults, Shaun played with Mason (5yr old kid) (mind you Mason is an exceptional kid) and watching the two of them do the secret hand shakes signals was super cute.

I actually had the opportunity to ride on Shaun's boat last summer when he came to sd on his Backyard tour. Coolest person to meet and hang out with. He towed me around mission bay and gave me some pointers also. Very down to earth person,
easy going, just a great person. I have a pic
at my house with him. I am 5'5" and he is about the same height. But damn, he can still bust some
huge air.

I think he's like 4'11", maybe 5 foot even. I'm not sure, but I do know, he fits in most carry-on luggage.

Hey Troy, we gotta make sure we give props to you too. We all know Shaun woud not be as good as he is without a damn good driver like you.
Just had to give you some props too.

Hope the Boarding School is going well.

Well there you go. It's not about driving cool, it's about looking cool.

Actually, I drove for Shaun when he was in Sac last year and he said I was a much better driver than Travis Moye(punk). In fact he said that I made him a much better rider. He said that I was a boat driving technician. No lie.

Hey Travis, good to see your name on the board. Tom, your nose is growing by the second. Must be the swelled head from your son being invited to the MASTERS!! YAY DEREK! (how is the knee?)
As far as Shaun goes, he has set the standard for us on how a demo should be run. Him and Gerry both. Speaking of, Travis, did Christy have her baby?? Boy or girl and name please?? thanks!
Old    travis moye (driving)      Join Date: Jan 2003       01-20-2005, 4:37 AM Reply   
Yep, Gerry and Christy had there baby right before new years. A little boy named Christian.

Christian was at my house last night. Awesome... Gerry made him do pull-ups while we were having dinner. Looks just like Gerry..

It was great meeting Shaun and just talking about things. Great person, nice. Mason was slapping all kinds of skin with him ( Ithink Shaun learned a new one). Laci you'd better make sure you and Tracy have the breakfast menu worked out for this summer. I think Sahun meant it when he said you two could make breakfast when they come.

Does anyone know how Shaun's knee is? I thought I heard he was supposed to be riding again this month.
