just out of curiosity, does any one know how tall the tallest pro wakeboarder was (current or retired)?

Ryan Seibring is pretty tall, about 6'2" I believe, and there is some new Canadian guy on the scene supposedly riding really powerfully and ripping it up who also is pretty tall.

So no more excuses of being too tall then? (I'm only like 5'10" anyway) But damn! Now what's my excuse why I suck?

No excuses, just charge it and have fun!

Bess, I read allot of your post, and was you have a crush on Robin Friday?
I wouldn't blame you, he's real easy on the eyes. Saw him at the Texas Ski Ranch in July.
Just an observation...

Nah, just been working with him with some pics and working on an interview with him for wakeworld, trying to get his name and the cable tour out there as much as possible, along with a new wakeskate mag. I really want to help the industry grow by exposing a lot of the stuff/guys that aren't really being recognised. I've been pushing Robin's name just cause he's the only guy on the tour I know well, I interviewed Dan mavery for a wakeskate mag but other than that.. I'm hoping to meet more of the guys on tour when i transfre down to a school in Ft. Lauderdale (the Arts Institute)when i ride over at the cable in Deerfield. Wakeboarding's my life, and I want to see it get big, I wanna see more cable parks arround the US, I don't want to have to explain what it is to every person I meet. I want to make a difference in the industry. Plus I figure if I can help the cable tour and Robin and all the other guys then it'll help me get my pics circulated and maybe I can make something of it. I've talked to David Cornwall, about taking pics for the cable tour next summer, and its lookin good, but we'll see what happens. If you check out and check out the canadian stop you'll see my pics there. The quality isn't that good on the website but if you're interested I can send you a CD of all the pics I took at that stop. send an e-mail my way. But ur right, Robin is a good looking guy .

Nice, Cliff where did you get the vans comp book?
Old     (cbv)      Join Date: Sep 2002       10-11-2003, 8:09 AM Reply   
Except Froggy, the book says he is 4/10 but my daughter is 5/1 and he is taller than her now by a couple inches so he must be 5/2 to 5/4 now.

fel n froggy

I got the booklet at the compitition last weekend. (actually I took it from my daughter to get the stats for this thread - dont tell her)

Shapiro might be 5'4" with 3 inch heels on. Not that it matters when you can throw down like Darin.

Yeah, those heights aren't too accurate I don't think. I know Lyman's taller than 5'9 and Harf's taller than 5'8... I really don't think Parks is 5'7 either after meeting him in Cleveland... Oh well though...
Old     (melanie_g)      Join Date: Jul 2002       10-13-2003, 2:24 PM Reply   
Parks and Shane aren't that short, I'm 5'6 and Shane is taller than me. Parks is like 5'10, he's alot taller than me.

I thought Danny was 6'0
Old    maverick_gear            10-13-2003, 11:30 PM Reply   
naw parks is like 5'8-5'9 cause im at eye level when were standin tall shane might be 5'10.. darin is shorter than froggy but has more muscles than ruck watson and murray put together.. i am pretty sure keith is like 5'11 same with weinracker(AKA Ma WINGMAN) who's tallest is definetly a tough one... i bet chase would say he is but he would come up with some weird way of measuring himself like top to bottom and around the middle or somethin:-)

No way Parks is 5'10, I'm 5'10 met him at the 1st VTC stop in Ft. Worth, I'm at least 5 inches taller than he. Shane is slightly taller than Parks.
Hi Bess, no I'm not involved with the cable tour. I love to watch though. My son wake boards and doesn't do much cable. We have a "membership" to TSR and try to make it to all the events.

At Worlds, Darin and Froggy were standing back to back to see who was taller. I think Froggy has Darin by about 1/2 inch or so for now.

I think it was the 03 buyers guide.. yeah the 03 buyer's guide in Wakeboarding Mag has all their heights I think.. I dunno I can't remember I left that issue at home but I remember they did a bunch of short bios of alot of the riders and if I remember correctly I think they gave their height/weight, stance, etc.

Nick and Julz are like 6'1"-6'2". Cobe is at least that tall. I'm 6'0" and this picture shows Parks just a few inches shy (I'd say about 5'10"), and Ruck taller than me.

Danny Harf is over 6', so is Chad Sharp. Of all the pro riders I have met in person (almost all of them), Ryan Siebring is by far the tallest.
