Billy made the finals in wakeboarding and ended up third. He broke his board in the middle of the second run and he basically had nothing to ride for his final. He borrowed a 140 State with fins in it(after he's been riding the Marius for 2 years finless). So off he went without feeling it out of dialing it in. He was pretty displeased with his final run and was sure he could have pulled at least second if his board hadn't broken. He's more stoked than ever to get out and charge it and pick up a few more tricks for next year. Not a bad showing.... LOL

Definitely inspirational seeing those pics. Big props to all the competitors for getting out there and killing it.
