I don't either, but I pick one up from my local shop every month. I will see if one of our IT guys can scan it for you.

Scan that shot of Colin Harrington doing a TS BS 540 while you're at it. Everyone should see that!

wakeboarders rank shouldnt only be about video parts, put into consideration contests, personality, what they have brought to the sort, innovations made by them and and yes videos to. You cant look at one video and say okay vandal is god or parks is god just from there part and the trick they pulled. PArks deffinatly deserves top ten as he competes and does well, has good video parts, has mad several innovations from the first 1080 to raising the bar on sliders and contest runs and also if he is at a contest he is easy to go talk to our score an autograph off of ect. Randal does have awesome video parts and tries to innovate the none contest side wakeboarding however i have never seen him be apart of the community in a sense of helping people or out or donating time for demos (I dont live in the states so i dont know what he does down there except may the gb tour). There is alot to consider about who makes a great wakeboarder. Tricks arent everything.

At the end of the day this is the 'Riders choice awards' for all of you who don't agree with the winners, just remember the votes have been cast by the majority.

If I were you I'd be extremely grateful that the majority didn't have the same taste as you. I guess that is what makes you unique.
If everybody had the same taste as me then you'd all want to go out with my GF

Iím happy to be different.

Aaron W., I agree! i lost all of my respect for Randall in Orlando this year. To make a long story short, he almost started a fight with some of us. He acted like a complete idiot!! i respect him as a rider because he is sick but he sux as a person. (from what I've seen) But hey...he likes it that way

What I thought was funniest is the X-star getting boat of the year when most people probably haven't even ridden one. Same deal again I guess; marketing and hype.

I rode behind an x-star for the first time on monday. The wake DID NOT have the pop i was expecting. The wake was of a similar size to the wake on my 19ft mastercraft sportstar. The difference is the x-star was running just the standard ballast (1000lbs?) and I run 2400lbs of ballast. My wake is also an awful lot more vertical so it really boots you if you just straighten your legs at the top of the wake. With the x-star you really have to ride right up the long slope like it was a ramp.

If you load the crap out of that boat, the wake is humungus. It is way differant than most wakes. It is really long with a lip at the end. Most riders leave early on their tricks when they first ride the wake. Once you get used to it it is great. Gigantic DU's!

Any List...Any where...any time and Randall should be at the top of the list. More Style and amplitude then any other rider out there. Because he does not do many comps and conform to the "norms" of wakeboarding society he will never be thought of in the same regard as the parks and shawns of the world. Not that they are not great riders in their own respect, I just think that style should play a larger roll.

People on this site are better at talking crap than almost any other group I have come across before. If there was any one perfect board out there it would make it a waste of time to have a selection. There are a lot of people here that know what they are talking about and a lot that just like to argue. Then there is that other group of riders that is soo "core" that they wont even ride hyperlite products. Way up top there was a post about Burton, and I kinda feel the same way about hyperlite: they have put a lot of time and money into promoting the sport that we love, plus they make a decent product and have always stood behind all of my warranty issues. That said there is tons of other good stuff out there too. I won't even begin to say which is "best". Whatever...I think I forgot my point already. I think I'll go ride and not worry about it.

I prefer not to ride hyperlite because I cannot afford their equipment and find their boards/bindings on the heavy side. That is preference, it always will be preference. Im sure some people out there like their boards like their women...heavy and expensive (the heavier they are, the less you have to spend for them to get that way).

I love my Hyperlite Motive. My Byerly boots are super comfy and provide the perfect combination of support and release in a hard fall. However they are heavy and the Boa system has reliability issues.

Id rather ride 'like' Shawn Watson or Erik Ruck then Randy. Randy is really good though.
