Its hard to believe that this will be (correct me if I am wrong) his first year on Jr. Mens. He is going to destroy!

Actually he rode Jr Men this year, and did pretty damn good too. He went in early.

He rides wayyyyyy beyond his years. AMAZING video. Is there any jealousy between the two brothers because Jacob is the better one and younger?
Old     (stephan)      Join Date: Nov 2002       10-08-2008, 2:46 PM Reply   
Kyle, to define Jacob as being better than his brother is a little whack. I'm pretty sure the Ed is pretty proud of his riding and the direction he decided to take it. Ed rides bigger and more stylish, basically I chalk it up to a Shane/Parks comparison, some think one or the other is better, when really they are just completely different riders and do their own thing well.

Stephan i've seem a bunch of clips of eddie and i think jacob has taken him on all realms of the sport. The kid is a phenom.
Looser, i was to say he is 15 or 16, maybe younger

kyle...does it really matter, how does it impact you? Why even ask that question?

Trevor is turning into quite the video editor as well!

Right on Jacob! Your killing it bro . Glad to see things are going well. Heel seven off the wake was super clean and legit, dum dum, blind five!? Keep it up man, best of luck.

Why ask that question? Because I am curious...the same reason why you ask any question. Did I take anything away from either of them, no i didn't. Is it wrong for me to say Jakob is better than Eddie? No its not. It is no different that Serena being better than Venus. Does anything on a message board really impact me? No. Does my post impact you? No. If you don't want to answer my question than don't, but there is no reason for giving me sh#t for asking a legit question.

Nice riding Jacob... you've been blessed with some skills!

Inappropriate question IMO also.

Jacob, I hope you and your bro can make the Spring Ride contest next spring. Keep doing your thang.

Thanks so much for all your kind words, most that have posted in one way or another have helped my boys and it is so appreciated!!

Hey Kyle, I guess peoples taste in riding is subjective. And there have been points in time that the statement was accurate. Check out this video of Eddie

Eddie and Jacobs style of riding is so completely different but I believe paralleled.
Both great riders, but completely different.
Eddie is riding better than I have ever seen him ride.It is truly beautiful to watch.
Your statement about jake being better than eddie? Its all in who you ask. Eddie has been instrumental in jacobs success as a rider and now they are pushing eachother!

Jacob right now is completely absorbed in water polo, and being a freshman in high school, (sniff sniff, our little brown trout is growing up!!)

ps and WOW, a kevin bird sighting!! kevin, it has been forever!!!

woah...he had some crazy tweaked out spin that was cut in the video. I'd like to see all of that trick.

Jarrod.... I'm guessing it didn't end well.

Good stuff boys. Nice riding all around.

T Maur, Nice editing homie. See you next weekend.

Okay, here's the scoop:

Jacob is better at trash talking than Eddie. Eddie, however, has a lock on Jake when it comes to bowling. I think Jake might have passed up Eddie at skateboarding. (He has really been progressing as of late.) Nevertheless, I can personally vouch that Eddie has been pullin' more phone numbers lately if you know what I'm sayin'. Don't worry about it Jake. You are a young thoroughbred race horse that hasn't even reached his prime yet, haha. Does this help sum up who is better?

In all seriousness, wakeboarding is a sport subject to personal bias. Having had the privelage of spending a lot (almost too much) time with Eddie and Jake, it has become evident that they have both progressed more in the past year than ever before. I get stoked when I see Jake stomp his pass. Then, I get a different, but equal, kind of stoke when I watch Eddie ride. Both are so much fun to watch.

Oh ya, nice vid Jake.

They Both Rip....Bottom Line. Itll Be exciting to see what the future holds for both of them...And Im certainly stoked that they are straight outta southern cal...The greatest locale in the lower 48.

Kyle, I would argue your "Jacob is better then Eddie" observation. Having watched both of them ride both contest and freeride for a number of years, they have different riding styles for sure but dosen't everybody? Both are talented with bright futures ahead. For me I like Eddie's stezz, Sorry Jakie you know I still love you

Eddie's shot in the new Wakeboarding photo annual is sick. Props to him and Spence. Both brothers rip with their own unique style.
