"as good as harley "

That's what I thought too. Techy, big, clean, and stylish.

Very impressive.

I would say almost as good as Harley, he was missing a regular hs 9 of the wake as well as taking his heel mobe to 5 and not to mention kgb5. Not take anything away from Raph dude was straight killing it. But I wouldn't say he is as good as Harley

OMG, Ralph doing work.
Old     (jarrod)      Join Date: May 2003       07-22-2010, 11:29 AM Reply   
Heel 9 was the first trick he threw.

Do you know a lot about Ralph's riding? Or are you assuming that what you saw in the video is everything trick he has in the bag?

He's coming or he's already there! lol
He's awesome! I'm from Quebec too and I know how summer is short! It gives him a lot more credit!

Actually the first trick was a cab 9, which is what pro's do if the can do w2w hs 9's few can do regular hs 9's w2w. I am assuming alot about his riding your right, but correct if I am wrong have you heard of any other person besides Harley landing w2w hs bs 9 or Switch KGB 5. I could be wrong but I dont believe Raph does blind pete either. Not to take anything away from his riding it was AMAZING the flat spin ts bs 5 was ridiculous, but that said, trick for trick i think Harley will come out ahead

I haven't seen Raph put down as many really big tricks off the wake as I have seen Harley hit, but Raph is pretty close. He is also one of the five best guys in the world on rails right now. Didn't he just win Wake the Line? I would like to see where he would rank among all other pro riders in terms of total tricks if you take into account rails, probably pretty high.Anyway, awesome vid.

correct me if im wrong but was that a toe back 7 off the double up at the end?
Old     (jsweat)      Join Date: Apr 2007       07-22-2010, 6:10 PM Reply   
you're right it was definitely a toe back 7
Old     (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       07-22-2010, 11:35 PM Reply   
That was straight dirty. Toe back 7 was nuts.

hot damn it.

I've watched this vid like a dozen times and I'm more impressed every time I watch it. That flat toe back 5 he does is dope.

Song title is Konichiwa Bitches, by Robyn.

Must be that board if Harley and Raph were both using it...

Moby dick 5

That very easily could have been a winning run at the PWT. Not taking anything away from Harley, just saying that its always anybody's game.

Raph is an absolute sick rider, this guy has so much style and is such a nice guy infact his brother ollie is also a great guy, he is definatley a top contender for the Pro mens now.
