Every year we beg our discussion board readers to get their votes in for the Riders Choice Awards, yet only a fraction of you actually do it. So here are the top ten reasons why you should vote for the Riders Choice Awards today!

10. Win a wakeboard, wakeskate, wakesurf board, boots, vest or rope/handle from Liquid Force just for voting.

9. Have a say in the future of wakeboarding products by telling the industry your likes and dislikes.

8. It only takes five minutes out of your day and even less if you only vote for the rider categories.

7. Win one of five pairs of sunglasses from XRAY Eyewear just for voting.

6. Let your favorite pro rider know how much you love him/her.

5. After the next election you can tell all your friends, "I voted," without lying to their face.

4. Win one of five shirt/short/belt/hat packages from Ten-80 just for voting.

3. Help us to set record WakeWorld traffic levels during our busiest month of the year.

2. Win one of 20 DVD's from Sidewayz just for voting.

1. Give yourself the right to cry and moan when the results don't come out the way you expected.

...and Nick Taylor, probably the top wakeskater after Reed Hansen. And Ryan Lemons, he has also landed some really hard tricks that no one else is doing.

Why are these conducted before nationals and worlds. There is still wakestock also. If someone does well in those it would change my voting. Especially rookies. Who would you put there at this point? Now if one of them stomps it in the next 2 months that would be a huge difference.

We're not looking for riders that just do well in contests. We're looking for your favorite riders whether they be contest riders or freeriders. Scott Byerly consistently shows up in the top ten for wakeboarders, but he hasn't really competed in years.

In addition, August is our busiest month of the year. After that, traffic starts tapering off, so we want to make sure the maximum number of people are here to make their opinions known.

David,

One of these years you should reverse the order alphabetically (i.e. JD Webb would be near the top of the list, while Atkinson would be at the bottom). I have wondered how much clicking the link and seeing 2 Bonifay's right near the top increases their popularity in the voting. It would be interesting to see if it changed anything or not.

Sean, I was thinkin the same thing! He has improved so much in the last few years! From DS1 to DS2 its unreal to see how much he has improved! Have you ever seen DS1 or DS2??J/k He has soooo much style!! I love to watch him ride! I was lookin for him for my top ten!

Its good to see Shelby, and the Hoffman girls on the list! All 3 got my vote!! Way to go girls!!

Derek has been added to the list.

Loren, I feel ya since I'm a Williams and have been at the back of the line all my life. It would be interesting to try, but it just might confuse the hell out of people too. Maybe I'll try alphabetizing by first name.
