Was that speedball off the wake? I never saw the double up rollers. It is fun to watch Shapiro, he has a great aggressive riding style.

His riding has definitely improved from the 12 honky days. His style looks a lot better than what people give him credit for.

Wow, that was crazy! The crow he did was HUGE. The Speedball was off the double up.

not sure - just saw it for the first time this weekend. Looks like hes riding a LF. So must be pretty recent.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but on the video that jjakober posted was he rotating the board over the rope on some of those spins? Or am I just seeing things.

Yes, over the board. One of them is his Orbital 540 and I think the one at the end is a new one he recently came up with.

Unbelievable. It looks like he is really close to catching the rope with the board on that speedball too. Really a great rider that takes tricks to the fullest. I also notice he's riding the lyman 135 in the second vid. Nice

Looks like his back is doing better, he was charging as hard as ever in the last video. It has always impressed me how much spray and water flies when he edges.

Damn, that was massive... In that Russia vid he makes the wake look huge, guess he is a pretty small guy but flying high for sure. Madness.
Old     (wakedad33)      Join Date: Oct 2005       08-04-2008, 6:51 PM Reply   
30 something and still has mad game, looks like he could compete on the tour right now. I've had the good fortune to see some speedballs in person, impressive.

He has Huge Pop. Thats the advatage to being 5ft tall and buffed. The Wake looks HUGE next to him. Poping him effortlessly and floating everything. still gots it!!!!

Shapiro is like a pit bull on steroids. Strong, smooth, and always a surprise!

Darin has progressed the sport more than anyone in history. He has so much power in his riding.

...and remember he was going that big behind a direct drive in the 90's. In my book, the biggest air rider of all times. It used to kill the other pros how he dominated the pro tour, but could do absolutely anything when freeriding. His rewind spins are total sickness.
