I found this supplement at www.thriveactionsports.com - the site claims it will help your riding. I was thinking about buying it but has anyone tried it - does it work?

Looks like another lame marketing ploy by someone trying to sell an energy pill.

I agree with M-dizzle.

The only that helps riding is practice.

Natural HIGH??????!?!?!?!?

Faster RecoverY?!?!?!

Superman Confidence??!?!?!?(does it make you do raleys better?)

Balance. Coordination. Body Awareness.?!??!?!

Explosive Reaction Speed?!?!?!

Scientifically Engineered. Tested by Top Boarders and Riders?!?!?!?!?!?--Like Who????

Sounds like steriods!

Yohimbe was and is still use for impotence
This is the finding on vinpocetine:

This is one of the reviews on the site from a user:

Hmm, one of the guys in the testimonials (the one doing the sweet wake to wake tail grab) is from Salisbury, MD. Coincidentally so is the thread creator.....hmmm

just so you know, it will NOT help unless you participate in action or extreme type of sports.

Opium is a natural high too... what does natural even mean? If you feel "high" only when you take it, it is obviously not a natural feeling that your body normally has.

The internet has allowed the traveling salesman to hock his magic elixir without being run out from town to town but that doesn't mean we can't tar and feather him on a message board. P.S. This post helps prevent tiger attacks...let me know how its working.

Good Point M-Dizzle.

M-Dizzle, the guy in the pic told me about the stuff when I was on the water yesterday - just seeing if anyone else knew anything about it.

Guys this stuff works! I took it the first time I ever rode a wakeboard and landed my first trick attempt which was a tantrum to blind and followed it up with my second trick attempt ever which was a monster Batwing, and I landed both clean. It was like I was Superman or something, and the best part is, I was super high the whole time! Iím telling you; take this stuff and I 120% guarantee youíll rip on a wakeboard.

Remember that dude a while back who said shrooms made him ride better? There may be something to riding high.. hahah. I'll stick to pounding a coffee for the early morning energy, though.

Phantom - Impotence medicine? That's hilarious. I don't think anyone wants to be part of the crew that pops a bunch of impotence meds before riding. You'd need the "superman confidence" just to stand up, let alone ride

Jayme, you "discovered" this message board the day after someone told you about this product and created this thread as your first post?

"just seeing if anyone else knew anything about it"

What I DO know is that your riding does not magically get better due to a pill (unless it's possibly PCP, dunno and never want to try).

"The very first time I used REAXION my body just seemed to respond quicker. It was like everything around me was in slow motion but I was at normal speed. When I ride after taking it I feel like I can pull off anything..." - Casey O., Oakland, CA

Sounds like trucker speed to me! To answer your question, no, I try not to buy trucker speed of the internet.

You take that and you will be attacked and killed by a pack of wild dogs you thought you saw! I agree with M-Dizzle, its seems like another stupid energy pill, and the only thing that will make your riding better is practice, and the only thing that will help you throw raleys are a larger pair of kahones. I hate those 5 hour energy commercials. I can drink a can of kaos at 10:30 in the morning and have problems sleeping at 10:30 pm.

Haha, Hopefully it was just a BIG BIG coincidence, otherwise I think the lesson was learned.

I dont think it would. If you want to improve your riding go practice. i do cardio and bowflex an hour a day each and then i go ride for about 2-3 hours 1 or 2 a week. i dont take any of that kind of stuff

If you read the ingredients, they are pretty much identical to a pre workout NO booster supplement. The ingredients definitely work the way they are described, alertness, focus, increased blood flow, stamina, etc. However, things like this do not improve riding or style, they just give you more strength and endurance on the water.

I have no idea what some of the ingredients like yohimbe and vinpocetine are though.

This is the first post on wakeworld that actually made me laugh out loud. I hate it when people type LOL but in this case it applies. Especially when I scrolled down and saw Chappel.

I know a guy who tried this product, then tied his handle and line to the back of a train and did a board slide (on the railroad tracks) from Chicago to Cleveland! This is a true story! I recommend this product highly!

Powerthirst is frickin incredible.

And I can tell you right now that the NO-Xplode pre-workout drink is pretty damn fantastic. It works really well for lifting, not so much running, but lifting definitely. I haven't tried it with wakeboarding though... Maybe I should since I have extra now that I'm pretty much done lifting...
