Just came across this after watching the old Shapiro speedball vid.

Mark Kenney was way ahead of his time. Peace bro!

Ahh the great WakeTV.

That was some unreal riding coming from 2001-2002. The Indy Tant2blind off the double up at around 3 minutes in was just nasty. Way ahead of his time. Thanks for posting

Kenney threw down. He would have pushed the sport so much further if he had been given the opportunity. I know I read somewhere that Mike Ferraro said that he was probably capable of 12's all those years back. Somebody correct me if I am wrong, he had a rare flesh eating bacterial infection.

Stew's right, my bad. Here is the article. I am not sure where I picked up the bacterial infection idea from.

Always a joy to watch that clip, sad day when we lost Kenny! I remember picking up WB Mag and the had a tribute to Mark of him hitting the biggest DU I ever seen. RIP Bro, thanks for pushing the sport!

Seemed like he had an awsome head on his shoulders too. This is my first time hearing of him and I would've loved to meet the guy. RIP Mark

Kenney was all time, only the good die young. I wish there was more of his riding to watch on the web. I have definitely seen every clip of his available many many many times. He was so diverse in his riding, far and away the best cable rider, and getting to be if not the best boat rider. I see so much of him in Nick Davies it is scary. What people don't realize is how little boat he has gotten to ride in comparison to the guys he is now riding against. This kid IS the next Mark Kenney (if that is even possible).

Wow. I had heard of him but never seen any footage. That was incredible. Every trick is HUGE. It would have been cool to see how much further he could have progressed if he was already at that point years ago.

Nice tribute at the end of the video.

Mike F. drove the boat when Mark landed two 1080's in a row... Amazing!!! all you pro's out there-watch this video that was 2001 step it up. I got a chance to meet Marks Aussie friend sry bro i'm bad with names, in NC at Adam Feilds Tournament. They have similar style n crazy volcans. My good friend just died and I got to take two sets the afternoon after his service. RIP Chris Caddell and Mark K. I'm going to keep ripping because of guys like you who motivate me to be a better man.
