T. Propst - because he is so smooth
Jeff House - because he has the best Pete Rose in the game.
Benny G. - Its obvious.

I always like Zane Schwenk after watching one of the early X-Games and seeing him fall land on his back spin around and keep riding. I thought it was amazing at the time.

JD Webb...probably because he taught me my first invert at a clinic and is such a down to earth guy first board was his model (Helix) and I love how he is a tall guy (like me) who rides with such a smooth style (like I wish I could)

Murray...because he just does everything for the right reasons, and his riding is full of joy which is the entire reason I ride as well.

Shapiro...because, I'm old in wakeboard years & well - he's the skud!!
Murray...because he has so much fun in making his living and interacts with us common folk on this forum! (And, he let me be on his team @ Wake Games!)
Amber Wing - for being such a great person to go with being an awesome rider! (She offered to let me ride her set up @ Worlds when the airline lost mine!)

Murray and the Vandall for going HUGE and having the best style out there.

Shane kills the rails like no one else. His nose-press is unmatched.

Parks is, without a doubt, the most technically skilled rider in the sport. That double mobe is in-freakin-sane!

If I could only pick 3 it would be Murray, Vandall and Greenwood. Watson, Harf, Sharpe, Parks and Byerly could easily be inserted in one of their places though.

Murray - His vid sections are always bomb.
Ruck - Same as above, and he's from the Midwest
Nick Jones - Part-A'd real hard with him in Minneapolis 2 years ago after PWT. Good time.

Murray-he does everything the right way in his riding and he is a very funny guy, and he is a great man of God

Harris-he is the most intense rider out there, and he is also a great man of God

lyman-i have met him a couple of times wile he was in dallas and he is a really cool person. He is an awesome rider as well, his section in push process was amazing, i also love the fact the he is a big support of the military

Harf-i mean what else does there need to be said lol, he is a really cool person and the best rider ever.

Gabe Lucas- we he is from Texas rock on, i got to watch him ride in the rail jam in dallas, i though he did really good in it. i liked him and trevor hansen's section in drive.

I gotta say anyone who rides!

Murray always makes me smile when I watch him, JD is amazing to watch and PB has skills that no one has even seen yet. Be on the look out for Hutton he's killing it and I've been riding the Jeff House a ton lately and he's riding the best I have even seen.

I cannot believe Rusty & Soven were only mentioned twice in this thread. I hear Soven is a punk, but you cannot argue with his skills and consistancy. The fact that he an Rusty are only mentioned twice surprises me.

I like Harf's style and Adkinson's tech.

Overall Rusty because he is a big guy and makes everything look so easy which is impressive. I don't care what anyone says it IS harder for bigger guys to become an accomplished wakeboarder.

I look at the whole package.....skill,tech, consistency, attitude and integrity counts as part of the whole.
