There are Bud billboards with a wakeboarder in southern New Jersey too, but the picture of the guy wakeboarding is really lame. This picture is much better.

It's definately ike. There is also one in downtown clovis. Kind of cool to see wakeboarding on billboards. I would assume that ike now has a big corporate sponsor.

Bud Light's marketing agency contacted me looking for photos back in February for various promotional purposes. The stipulation that they gave me was that the athlete had to be over 25 in the images... not just 21. In this sport, most of the talent is under 25...and that's who I have the most images of so I lost the bid on that job, which sucked... that was a chunk of $$!

I'll also chime in and say that it's Ike. I would guess Bill Doster took that photo, but don't know for sure. I also don't think that it reflects as a sponsor of Ike... there's no wording indicating who it is... and I doubt you'll find anything about Ike on Bud's website. They just wanted an older rider to market beer, that's it.

aren't there quite a few riders over 25? shapiro, murray, struharik, nunn and gonzalez definitely - but i would assume watkins, sanders, isaacson, wright and maybe even weatherall are at least 25, no?

That is definitely IKE. We have one of those rolling around NC on one of those stupid billboard trucks, not delivering anything, just burning up $3.00 gas/deisel.

Chris, there are...

There aren't a whole lot of recent free-riding shots of Murray floating around due to injury... Darin's been out of the scene for awhile, as has Struharik. Nunn was an option but I didn't have anything of Gerry that they wanted. Ricky didn't fit the "image" they were looking for. Sanders isn't old enough. Didn't have the shots of Watkins. Isacsson... that's old school! I don't have those images.... Wright, well, when's the last time you saw him doing a glide? And as for Jeff Weatherall, not old enough either.
