My refurbished knee would explode on impact on anything over 7ft I imagine.

I think alot of people really don't have a clue how high they're going. I guarantee that is a skewed statistic.

thats pretty friggin high! I was always somewhat curious. I would be interested in hitting a d-up, as I have never done that before.

I've been up around the 8 ft mark a handfull or less times off a double. My friend nailed a sweet triple this summer behind my boat that put him 8-10, but usually I'm probably 3-5 feet.

Ever since I bought my new sledge hammer board I'm going 10+ all the time.

at the cable park we are hitting a pretty sweet kicker that when you hit it with alot of speed it will throw u up almost even with the cable. There has been a few or us that have done it

That is a interesting poll, I would think that the wake is about at the floor of the boat and that puts the average ball on the tower at 7' so you are going to be going real big if your 10' consistently. shoot if your able to jump some one conssitantly I am impressed. Squid I would have put Shawn's back roll in the 7'-8' range that day it was huge.

Most people live in a dream world when they think about how high they go. It less about lying and more about being deluded.

Except me of course, I go massive.

I have no clue, maybe 3 feet if Im lucky but thats cause I suck, I had a young kid who went out with me all the time last summer and he went pretty dang big, I would say consistantly around 6-7 feet an on occasion would hit a huge one maybe 8-9 feet. He seemed to go bigger when there were chicks on the boat, pissed me off, I would have to fake a knee injury to make it look good

look, if you count raleys and can do one, if your six feet tall, and could do an ollie raley, then you would be at least 5 feet off the water there - so 10 ft aint that big a deal

as a reference, how high would you guys say Justin Butisky is on this Raley?

Old     (tyboarder03)      Join Date: Nov 2003       12-17-2005, 8:48 AM Reply   
Prolly about 8 or 9
Old     (rhettb)      Join Date: Feb 2003       12-17-2005, 8:55 AM Reply   
Hes higher than that unless hes really small
Old     (tyboarder03)      Join Date: Nov 2003       12-17-2005, 8:59 AM Reply   
Rhett your lookin at him and he's horizontal with the water not standing straight up. Now say for argument hes 6 feet tall if his feet were beneath him and his head was in the same place how much height would be left between him and the water?
Old     (tyboarder03)      Join Date: Nov 2003       12-17-2005, 9:00 AM Reply   
I guess you could say hes higher if your looking to the outside of the wake, but hes also on his way down once hes outside the wake from the looks of that pic.

Im looking at the outside of the wake, and I took all that into account - Id guess somewhere between 3 and 5 feet would be left
Old     (jarrod)      Join Date: May 2003       12-17-2005, 9:35 AM Reply   
He's about 5'10"

I win - and this is a small raley - and it was done correctly and fairly by scaling - and Im an obsessive compulsive engineer, so I did it right

I lied.... Ok you got me. I really have no idea how high I've been. I may have gotten close before. I've gotten hucked on a few dubs where you finish a spin and look down like 3 feet to the water. I've got one pic doing a kind-of indy shifty glide where I'm 2' clear of someone that's 6' tall. 10' really is pretty dam high.

I would probably put max air at around 7-8'. There are too many factors though (not to get back to that discussion, but...). It matters if you are inverted or not and where you are measuring from. I consider is from the point closest to the water, so on a raley your are basically higher than a spin at the same body height.

Oh crap..... here we go again. I'm leaving before I make this get any worse.

I think Justin is at least 10' at the point of the pic,so my guess at least 2 or 3 more feet on top of that.

At least 12' up to 15' on Justins raley.IMO

Now looking at it some more,I want to say even bigger.I'm trying to imagine a 6' guy boarding under him next to the wake and I can easily put 2-6' people so I gues I want to say....add another 2'.

I am sure a long time ago I have gone 10 ft before, but only off the DU, and probably crashed hard! These days I am lucky to get out on a boat, let alone try catch air. I probably average about 4-5 feet of air. At least that is what the pictures look to show.
