What lens would you recommend for shooting wakeboarders from a tube- 10 feet or so from the rider. I have a 20D body.

the 15mm fish on the 20D isn't that fishy.

I use the 10-22mm EF-S. I like it. One of the best things about it, it has a huge range where things are in focus. Typically I focus on the water about 10 feet away and shoot and my riders are in focus.

I haven't had the opportunity to try the other lenses out though.

Yeah Randy, but I have my standards. Only on perfect butter, and then plenty of S turns and circles to share the maximum amount of rollers with the rest of the lake.

try stayin on the tube through a double up.

By far the best photography platform is "The living room floor" by World Ski Lines (right?) You should check out the footage from "It's Whatever" from They actually try landing on it with wakeboards, while Dave Rowe is filming on it.. they are nuts.
