Cool web site. It is kind of refreshing to see a team that isn't about comps but just wakeboarding. Just seems like it has a cool westside feel to it. The lady is a different story. She may be the best comp rider in women's. I know Tino can compete but I don't recall him competing the last couple of years and he seems to be one of those smooth snowboarder types thats fun to watch and doesn't care about tour stops. Just my read. Nothing against comps, I love them but just respect these guys approach.

It is always interesting how fans project what they think about riders on to them. Tino does have smooth style and I am sure he is a great free-rider, but he is at the tour, usually doing well, every weekend.

What is wrong with being a fierce competitor? Why is it okay for Rusty to train and focus on the tour, but when Phillip does he gets bashed.--Also, don't add comments about these guys personalities unless you know them personally--I don't.

Does that mean you don't know them personally or you don't make comments? Need to work on effective communication. Also need to work on reading comprehension. No one made any comments about personalities. No one bashed comps. No one bashed Rusty.

What the hell is the COPMANY wake team? I have never heard of them.


...Talk about working on effective communication.

Wow- What is everyone so bent out of shape about? Just said "cool team". Chris- isn't that you daughter on the team?

Yeah, don't worry about it. I am not bent out of shape. Just trying to make light of it. I hear what you are saying about the team. Quite diverse.

My point is that fans often project things on to riders that simply aren't true.

I guess I did take it a step further commenting that it is cool for some riders to compete and others not. But that has always been something that annoyed me personally and less related to the topic. I guess I should have started a new thread.
