Wow, that guy is good!

It's amazing how many "no name" people have 7's these days. 10 years ago there were probalby only a few guys in the world that could do them but now I bet there are hundreds.

Looks like he is really close on the 9. I really enjoyed watching that. It is fun to watch riding in regular speed. You can really appreciate the skill needed for all the tricks. I get sick of watching everything slowed down.

He was sticking the 9 w2w two years ago. He had ACL reconstruction last season so this is really his first year at full speed since 07.

BTW... Alex just turned 18 if I'm not mistaken ;)

i love when you can look at the little avatar pic before clicking the video and see him doing a perfect edge, so you know the video is going to be awesome...and it was. I love raw footy too. I wish instead of using only background music, they incorporated the sound of when they land in the flats and make that "POP" and the sound when they hit trex rails and it makes that "tchhhhhhhh" sound.

i loved that grab at 1:18 by the way where he looks like he is going to do a nose 180 wing but brings it back, and for his pete's tell him to wait a second longer to pop and lift up his front knee a little more. That is the trick. I used to fall EXACTLY how he was falling and that is what helped be, but it is a b*tch of a trick. The landing is so sensitive, no room for error. I have never heard of him but from the looks of it, we will be seeing him in mags soon. What kind of boat was that? Sounded like an X-Star and that wake was THUMPIN!!!

luker, any idea how it was weighted? I really like the interior room of that boat. I have my wake dialed in, but that one looks clean with the right amount of lip and no trough = perfect. That is one of the only boats I think I would "upgrade" to.

Thats the.... "Gay Move" hand gesture ;) Our group either indicates they aren't happy with a trick by the "Gay hand" or the "Lame fist pump".

Pretty sure the weight set up is around 1K of lead in the front, 1200 of water in the rear, and 800 in the belly, all on top of stock ballast. We also move around a 150lb brick as needed.

Maybe Alex or Rick can chime in and correct me if this isn't right.
