Thought it was done very well. Getting to see video of the party barge jump was sick. Some of those landings looked painful! The driver said they were pulling him at 29MPH.... Dang!

There's no FUEL tv in europe (or at least not in belgium) such a shame!
Do you know if it's possible to watch it on the web??
cheers

Chad is the Man.... the landings were crazy on the party barge jump... but he kept on going. The whole interview with Ronix was really cool to see too with the Rider-Owner involvement.

I enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty cool that Cobe Mikacich was the driver during the party barge jump.

I thought it was a pretty original episode. I like it when they try to find different stuff to do. Those landings looked so hard! Did you guys catch a couple of those 5's that Dean smith did off that kicker? How is he not broken after that?

What was up with him jumpin the party barge with last years board kinda makes me wonder ab tha Viva!
Old    wakejjboard12            02-17-2009, 8:32 AM Reply   
that is weird that he hit it the first few times with the viva then switched to the covin.

Its on itunes

Are there any major changes between the Viva and Covin, besides graphics? Could he of possibly only had 1 or 2 Vivas broke them, then had to fall back on the Covin?
Old    Jeremy (wake77)      Join Date: Jan 2009       02-17-2009, 12:58 PM Reply   
Chance, the Covin has a continuous rocker, while the Viva is a Hybrid rocker.

Wake on Fuel is making a come back. I just set up about 5 programs on the good ol' DVR last night, which air in the next week or so. Some old, some new, but hey, it's wake (Red Bull, Butter Effect, can't remember the others).

Sharpie always KILLS IT No matter what board he is on! I know the viva has a bigger rocker then the covin. When a board has a 3 stage rocker the board will give you all the pop but land alot harder in the flats or on flat water. Ether way He made the sport grow with just that 22 min video!! Hats off to Chad!

Due that was massive. That melan 5 attempt of deans at the beginning was the biggest thing I have ever seen on a wakeboard.

Glad you guys are feeling it. We'll chime in every now and then with new footy...

Chad will hit anything. Hes a good guy also, met him at a restaraunt in 2007 in GA (during the PWT stop in Ackworth). I saw him eating with a few other riders and I didn't want to bother him, but he saw my Ronix shirt and spoke to me.

MAN! that was a great firsthand! Just watched the replay on fuel. Chad's an innovator for sure. Launchin over the party was a sick shot. Made my knees hurt, but it looked good.

Sorry Jake, we swapped out the SD version and replaced it with HD. The URL changed in the process, so here's the new one...

Hey Jason, what browser are you using? The Move player supports Safari, IE, and Firefox. Here's our help page...

It looks like you live in the U.S., so that shouldn't be the problem.

jason, and others having issues with the Fuel player, like me, the episode is also posted on Hulu.com with adobe flash player.

For now, Hulu is a U.S. service only. That said, our intention is to make Hulu's growing content lineup available worldwide. This requires clearing the rights for each show or film in each specific geography and will take time. We're encouraged by how many content providers have already been working along these lines so that their programs can be available over the Internet to a much larger, global audience. The Hulu team is committed to making great programming available across the globe.
boo hoo

Sick! I just caught the tail end of it and he was going HUGEEE. That has got to do damage to the knees though. The impact on some of those initial falls looked like they tweaked his legs pretty badly.

Wow, I can't believe that guy's knees can take that kind of beating at the "old" age of 28!! The party barge jump at the end it just insane. Chad is a stud and good for him for continuing to come up with new and interesting stuff to film.
