After Squid started the "How long you been in the Game" thread, I started looking through my old videos and found this one from 1992. It's amazing how far things have come since then.

Jason,

That is sweet. I wish I started back then (2000 for me) I would love to have footage of me in the neon weysuit

The toe 3 was cool on that beast.

I hope others can contribute some old school footage

Craig,
I think the board was called the HO Rage.

Troy,
Don't forget the gloves and the waterski grip!!

J Jakober,

that's why I was having trouble with the 3's. I'm calling the boardshop tomorrow to pick up some new gear. The waterski grip should also help with the handle pass.

Seriously though, it looks like it was tough to get that thing on edge

Garret,

Thanks man. I was 23 back then. Man that makes me feel old!!

The boat was your standard IO runabout. The crazy thing is that we learned TS Backrolls behind that later that year. I am trying to see if I have any video of that.

jjakober,
That's amazing... I could make that EXACT same vid! Same board, flourescent wetsuit and all!!! I don't think I was landing ts 3's back then, but I do have a bunch of footage of wake to wake 180s and ts back roll attempts!! Nicely done. I'll have to throw some footage together this winter!
Brad
