maybe he didn't see you? unless you have some for of ESP you don't know if he saw you.

Maybe he didn't wave because you were either wearing the hated orange flotation device or your riding was really bad!

Ok, I'm kidding. I went to The Wakeboard Camp and Kyle was a very nice guy. Maybe he was in a bad mood, didn't see you, etc. I'm sure this isn't the first (or last time) you'll wave at someone on the lake that won't return the favor. Don't sweat it man.

Maybe he didn't like the way that you waved

Yeah, most people don't like being waved at if it's only your middle finger sticking up.

are you sure he saw you? sometimes I'd be looking at one direction but thinking about other things and Im not paying attention at whats happening directly in front of me.

Kyle is one of the nicest riders out there. I've seen him out and about after not seeing him for a year and he recognized me and remembered my name.

Every Pro I have ever met is super nice. In Kyle's defense you can't wave at everybody you see on the water. If we did that we would be waving all day. So i wouldn't pass judgement on him just cause he didn't wave.

What difference does it make that he's a pro?

I generally only wave at people I know and no one's complained so far! Upload

Dude, you should never judge anyone from a 5 second interaction (or lack thereof). I wave to every fisherman I see, and I usually only get one wave back out of a hundred. And they can't all be a-holes...right?

I was at this pro contest once and I was waving like crazy during Murray's 2nd pass in the semi-finals. He never waved back nor did he even look up at me. I was sreaming from the shore...but nothing. And I thought he was a stand up guy?!

Wasn't he riding during his second pass?
He was probably focusing on riding and didn't notice you

Was he wakeboarding? or WakeParading?

i think it is pretty obvious that kyle was looking at the "hotties" in your boat and didn't notice you waving. if you want the pros to notice you, leave the chicks at home next time....

DTB - Did you just suggest that cut off his shlong. Cause, "leave the chicks at home next time" is just about the same thing. That's always my response when people suggest I sell my boat to get out of debt. There are needs and wants in life. Wakeboarding with hot chicks is a need. LOL

I wave at fisherman all the time; they never wave back.

Does not waving back render a person to be stuck up?

every pro i've ever met has been insanely nice. He probably just didn't see you

Um, Ron, I hope you're picking up the sarcasm, cause I'm laying it on pretty thick....

Why do people feel inclined to wave at strangers in boats? I don't wave to everyone I drive past in my car.

Kyle is a really good guy. He probably didn't see you. I wave at people all the time and never get a response.
Old     (firemedic)      Join Date: Jul 2006       06-13-2007, 11:13 PM Reply   

At least he didn't do this back...

Old     (bbking)      Join Date: Dec 2006       06-14-2007, 6:06 AM Reply   
since when do we not wave to every boat we see?

but seriously, don't take it personal... have you ever missed someone trying to get your attention?

There is something very fruity cocktails w/umbrellas and dolphin short wearing; about this thread on "waving."
Couldn't care less about waving, who waves anymore? Chaka is much better, maybe try the dual finger (rocked slightly to the side for style) "Peace," hell, mix it up and drop a heavy metal goathead sign, even the never-gets-old thumbs up, but a "wave?" Save the wave for Parades and Ms. American contest, and please, don't tell anyone about a "none" waver. Now, if they don't acknowledge the throwing of the Chaka, it's fine to fight. No weapons though, keep it clean.
Back to the ^hijack above on camps.

You are lucky he didnt return the wave. If he would have, your hotties might have "jumped ship"...

Hey guys most if not all of the pro riders are pretty cool, they are very friendly, but believe it or not they can be humble and shy too, so if they are not quick to return the wave most of the time it's because they are like...hmmm why would that dude be waving at me....Kyle is a GREAT guy and you should not have taken offense to his actions...he is quiet, hell I hardly talk to him but I know he means well and loves the enough bashing the bros brosef.

Well said Zane. It would take some getting use to i would imagine, everyone knows you and waves and you really don't know them or expect anything from them. Plus, after all its only a wave!! :-)
