Just got back from the tournament at the Delta today and wow...tons of talent. People are really stepping things up. This little 17 year old gal (Rachelle (sp?) from Chico)ran Outlaw with the big boys today and threw down!!! She had a very solid pass that included a Moby Dick and a Whirly...yeah, you can breath now...a Moby. WOW!!!! She was one of the best female riders I have ever seen!!!

Reaquel (pro woman) and Shawna (Jr woman) are both poised to make a statement at Worlds next week. Representing the westside, good luck girls, see you next week.

I got video of all the outlaws, including Raequel throwing a moby followed by the whirly. She was about 2 tricks short of placing up top with the big boys.

It's hard for me to believe these are the same two girls I videotaped for DS2 spring last year. If they keep progressing at this rate they're going to be making a major statement on the PWT let alone the worlds!

Rich,top 3 outlaw riders?
Old     (richd)      Join Date: Oct 2003       09-17-2006, 7:49 AM Reply   
Tony, Brady and Chris in that order. Chris and Raequel shared the best trick money followed by Brady and Tony.

Thanks Rich,from the pic's looks like the big boys (and girls) were going off. Congrats to Chris on his podium. Sorry for the Hi-jack

Congrats to Tony! Brady was definitely my pick for 1st place. Too bad I had to leave early and miss the action.

Tony's run was pretty sick and he stood it up. Brady had the one fall and probably didn't match him up from a trick qty standpoint. The difficulty factor being pretty even that was probably the difference in my mind.

I have video of Raequel's run from the boat. I'll get it on the web site once I get some time this week.

Delta Hangtime was outstanding. The quality of riding was very good in every division. Many riders showing incredible style. Great job Peter.

Walt, Great pictures.

"She was also the first to do a moby dick in a pro women's comp"

Sorry but that honor belongs to Buster. She landed it first and then Charity did it second.

Zedz, I'm not 100% sure, but I think you are confusing a moby dick with a whirlybird.

Here is the video of both Mobe Dicks. The first was in the best trick contest where the lighting was better, the second was from the main event into the sun. She also landed a whirlybird in the comp.

Hopefully this link works. If not, its at

Hey everyone. This is Raequel, I really have to thank you Peter for working so hard to put the event together. And Jason too! Personally, my favorite trick of that day was Brady's gigantic slim chance. It's really hard to choose between that and all of the glides from Tony and Brady and Chris's seven was to die for. So many tricks looked so neat that day. I look up to all those guys so much. And thank you Steve! Love you all.

No, Buster did both as a matter of fact.

Ya, Zedz is right. I think Buster was the only other girl to land a moby dick. But I have not seen anything with her for years.

Rarquel, You killed it!! It was so sick to watch you ride!! Next year the PWT won't know what hit them!!!

Raquel - You're a fantastic rider! It's really exciting to see women go out there and step it up like you are. Congrats! :-)

Raequel, I saw you ride at Villa Lagos on Sept 9th. You kill it! Special props for landing a moby dick and crushing that kicker on your last runs. Someone told me only two boys hit it besides you. The force is strong in this one.

Buster landed the Moby Dick for the trick tips in wakeboard mag, but never in comp. I think Raequl was the first girl to land this trick in a pro comp

Good luck Raequel and Shawna! We're so proud of you!
