lamest trend = wakeskaters trying to help wakeskating grow by talking smack about wakeboarding in a wakeboarding forum.

Right after i see the first 1080 landed on a wakeskate i will admit its a better sport, until then they each have a spot on my boat.

Fat guys, with their guts hanging out, won't even try to go wake to wake anymore(let alone inverts or spins), and blame injuries while thinking back to the good old days.

Oh, wait, that's me.

I've already made a commitment to finish out this year wakeboarding. Plus its like a drug you have to ween yourself off it i cant go cold turkey, haha.

Neither sport is better than the other, each to his own.

Craig and Brandon, I dont know if you get Alliance, but I got the "post of the year" talking about very similar issues to you that I had. Basically talking about the issues I had, the holes in my riding and what I learned going back to the basics.

"lamest trend = wakeskaters trying to help wakeskating grow by talking smack about wakeboarding in a wakeboarding forum."

Joe, the biggest problem that I see with tha trend is the age of the wakeskating demographic.
making a random visit to the skating sites gives me a flashback of jr high to some degree.

there are some very cool wakeskaters out there that are down for the cause, but I will agree that the smack talk has become lame.

carry on.

oh, i hear you kdubz. there are some super cool skaters out there. the problem i addressed above are the ones that are actively ripping wakeboarders in wakeboarding forums. if they think wakeskating is so superior, why keep coming back to wakeboarding forums? if it's simply to go in wakeboarding forums to knock wakeboarding, that's lame.

on that note, i still wanna skate and learn to winch w/ a skate.

Joe, trust me...we're on the same page.

I'm suprised you haven't got your son into wakeskating considering how much he likes to the looks of it, at least.

Okay, i couldn't even read all of the posts, but heres my two cents of what I actually skimmed. I wore board pants...once, in a photo shoot unfortunately. But come on, get over it.
I did find it funny when Tackleberry said in his #3 explanation that "caring what everyone else thinks" is lame, since he is on a website thread page that is nothing but opinions that we all like to share.
Speaking of humble opinion is whenever your wetsuit goes over your knees, like in a full suit, no shorts. If your wetsuit has that area hanging out the bottom of your shorts, it just looks funny.
Most, and I carefully say most, most of my friends will not wear shorts with fulls. Respected friends of mine, Ruck, Shane, Gerry, Andrew, Rusty etc...don't mind showing off some thigh.
But, like I said, just an opinion. when it comes down to it, i really don't care. so why do i take the time to share...i don't know?
And as far as "Mitch" the wakeskater goes, you can't say he looks gay because of his full suit and no short. He looks gay because of his back arm. And I use the term "gay" in the Michael Scott explanation sense of the word. sorry mitch, you do look like you have some pretty good skate skills.

Joe, me and Mitch were refering to a thread we had going in the wakeskate discussion board in which I was talking about possibly making the switch to only skating. He was simply joking with me, no knocks were intended towards wakeboarders. The rest my responses were largely sarcastic. Nothing but love for anyone behind a boat.

And I call the up's on that shuv Redeemtion, haha.

Wakeboarding is for people who wear shorts over their full suits.

Here is just my two cents....

I think changing wakeboard shapes every 2 or 3 years is pretty lame, and new boards coming out that everyone claims has "way more pop." Don't get me wrong, I am all for innovation, but I've ridden a lot of shapes and most of them ride very similar. I am glad that innovation has been going in the direction of lighter boards and flex patterns instead. Serious, ride some classic shapes like the Trip, Byerly finless, Premier, Belmont, Double Up Nelson, and other boards. Those boards ride just as well as any board today. Take a look at snowboarding, when was the last time shapes drastically changed? Other then magna-traction and banana shapes haven't changed at all for a while. We don't need new shapes we need better quality, especially with bindings I am sick of breaking two pairs of bindings a year.

caleb, i stated what i was referring to.

scott, those that's gone as far as they could go in wakeboarding take up wakeskating or wakesurfing.

Nick, that touches on something that I find hilarious which is the general attitude that the board plays such a significant role in your abilities to ride.

I hear sooooo many people and the underlying attitude is that when they find a board that will suit them, they will magically become a pro rider, haha. They buy multiple boards a season "searching" for that perfect board that will unlock all their potential. I will stick with my double up and focus on water time personally.

Double up?? Dude, if you upgraded your board you would get so much more hang time. Check out the explosion of the Transcend or Natural Dude! You will get at least two more feet of air if you get one of those boards.

Wish I could take back everything I said in my previous comment. I don't care if you wear shorts, overalls or a tutu over your full. Ride with what you feel like. I wore a silver suit with rockets, an afro with a flowered shirt, an apron as a cape and I am on here telling you to make sure you look cool when you ride. Sheesh! Mitch, keep the back arm however you want, that is your style.
When I first got into riding professionally, I noticed how opinionated everyone was, and I didn't like it. Opinions are fine, just negative ones are a bummer and I told myself I wouldn't get involved in the negativity. So here I am apologizing for stating something that is really unimportant.
Rock it however you feel best and have the most fun doing.

Shaun you are by far the coolest laid back person I have ever seen in my life, and I don't just mean when your on a board or at a boarding event, whereever you are and whatever you are doing, you are always making the best of it all and I admire that about you the most. If you really want to take your opinion back just delete the post, no one will mind.

Shorts outside the suite is lame, and I really want to know of those that do it, how many wear a pair of shorts under to. That is just wierd.

Randall rockin the shorts over the suit....YES!!

Really, it's a west coast = shorts vs. east coast = no shorts thing, with a few confused people on each side....Shaun Murray included! Once he moved to Florida, he had to give up the shorts over the suit .

Just playin Shaun. Hope you make the CIE Spring Ride. I know we've got your number!

I would say Eubanks was not serious with that Matt, he always has great advice on here and that comment I would say was a JOKE.
I know I am guilty of telling riders to demo the Transcend a lot on here, because I think its a great board. I do not tell riders that you will get two more feet of air on the board though, because we all no pop is more about the rider and less about a board.

I'm east coast, and I'm alllll for the shuits (shorts+wetsuit=Shuits. be retarded, but just nod and smile at me... It'll make my small mind very happy). As a matter of fact, personally, I think the shorts over the long wetsuit actually looks kind of badass... But that's just me and I'm CRAZY...


Oh that's cool, i said "shh!" and then said "It may" and it bleeped it out...

Hahahaha. this is so funny. I didnt really get a chance to read this stuff after work yesterday and i come back to this. haha.

Shaun, i know I have a problem with my back arm. I hate when it gets cut of in pictures. Ive been really trying to control it, especially in skateboarding. Its just how ive always ridden though. Not everyone can have byerly's hook, haha.

People are going to do what they want to do. Don't let people tell you what you should or shouldnt do when you wakeboard/skate. Do whats comfortable, do what you want, have fun.

Ride for yourself.

i never got why wearing shorts over your full dry/wet suit is gay. Maybe its just me but I've always thought revealing skin tight appearal around the thigh and ass was always a little bit strange. hahahaha.
Old    Randy Aubuchon (aubuchon03)      Join Date: May 2007       02-05-2008, 10:42 PM Reply   
3- spoon watches (sorry shaun)
2- jetpilot pants (shaun hey I still have my pair and their good for hidding your full legged wetsuite)
1- ICON wakeboards (u were better off straping bindings to a ski- it would have been wider probably)

These I think were the most notible fades i've seen.

bones...almost forgot about them..classic!

And for best video clip...Shapiro stating that sport will never head in the direction where guys would not be strapped to a board....High Wake Drifters 96 or 97?
