Who has seen it and what do you think of it? Retrospect is the one all about Byerly right? Anyone else ride in it? Is it worth buying?

I hear it is one of the more emotional wakeboard dvd's with a lot of power and good editing. havnt seen it, will buy it when price goes down.

really good video just finished it. Its really long and seems sorta slow at the beginning but the it picks up and then u want more when its over. ITs like atleast an hour and a half of mostly wakeboarding but with alot of history and really good ridind new and old.

I saw the premier of retrospect here in Reno and it was one of the best movies i have seen all year. It's a great movie though with a lot of background of the sport and some awesome riding.

Bess, I rec'd mine from yesterday. It is a def must have in the wakeboard DVD library. There is some hilarious "old school" clips from back in the day, as well as some great new stuff. Check it out.

You get to see Darin's Whirly and Thomas on a wakeboard, what more could you ask for? Gotta love all the old school riding. Definitely a must own DVD.

Of course it's worth buying. It's BYERLY, the greatest wakeboarder ever. He is a legend and everyone should buy this video.

I watched Retrospect and encourage EVERYONE to watch it. It documents wakeboarding all the way from the begining of the Skurfer. And for those of us that werent around back then, it really helps us [me] appriciate the sport. And its very well edited with interview/video/audio to really make for an enjoyable viewing. And its ---1.5 hours--- for 22 bucks which is killer for a wake video!!!

It's definitely worth buying. It's amazing to me how greg nelson's part works so well with that barry manilow music, and then they tone it down right away to randy's part, with music by cat stevens. I found that to be emotional...just the riding with the music, and then thinking about his personality...I've gotten the chills every time I watched it.

And of course, thomas and byerly's last part has great music...

Great reviews and all but have you seen all the hidden video??? There's some pretty cool extras if you know where to find them!!!

I watched it and loved it. I was like "wakeboarding movies aren't supposed to be this long!"

Hidden Video? Ok, spill your guts....

Worth the money for sure. Anyone entering the sport that is serious should buy this and Mayday.

Second. The two most crucial vids (if you were only to have two). As usual, B speaks the truth...

BTW, congrats!

There are spots in the movie when you press "Enter" and a hidden clip is revealed....
Some are only a few seconds, others are 5-6 minutes long... pretty awesome. To get you started, the first one is when you see the submarine at the first of the movie... the hidden part talks about how that all came about!!! I'd spoil it for you if I gave you every detail. Just start pushing enter!!!

how do you know when to push enter?

}I literally sat through the whole video pressing "Enter" until it paused and shifted to a hidden section...

...and well worth it, too! Trust me!

in the main vid, Chase Heavner gets on his soapbox about the "byerly hook" and all the wantabee Byerlys ridding with the hook....well he's actually in one of the hidden sections too, but to be honest the dude drives me crazy... we accidentally pushed enter a second time during that hidden section and found another hidden video.... it never ends.... This video is awesome!!!

Another thing I liked was the Schmaltz part. If you look how much he pokes out his grabs with almost no air (compared to today) it's inspiring.

You don't see too much of that stuff with most of the riders these days.

The best WB movie ever made. BUY IT. It will be around for a while and definitely a "must have" for the DVD library.
