So. Whats the story? I've poked around on this forum and can't find any video of guys going big or counting video frames. Lets see some video of you going BIG. What's the frame height record, and can someone post the video to prove it?

Raf... going small since 1985. That other tread is just a bunch of talk. I'm looking for proof. Do wakeboarders not count frames? And Yes we have embraced the term Sea Donkey!

Those guys have so much style.......

Nice if they could toss in a method or something while they are doing the big air somersaults.

Joking aside those are huge huge airs, I could only imagine if you hooked an edge of some sort what could happen.

are these guys in the air-chairs / sky-skis wearing helmets for the impact of water or potential impact of the ski/chair? or both?



...uhhh ohhh... did i just bring up the helmet issue?
Old    Adam Dietrich (FoilPowell)      Join Date: Mar 2012       09-27-2012, 12:55 PM Reply   
Hmm so 5+ years ago a couple pros when 53-53.5 frames? Thats it? In 5 years? I guess if you don't go big you don't need a helmet. I throw bigger than 53 frames EVERY time I ride. I wear a helmet because it's safer than not wearing a helmet. Closed head injuries are a game ender. I'm 35 and plan on going big for another 30 years or so.

So I ask about videos of wakeboarders going big and I'm a tool? Just curious to see how big you guys are going. I thought for sure there would be a few of you that wanted to know how big they're going. I had no idea wakeboarders didn't count frames. Now I know. Sorry for coming off like a tool. If any of you ever decide to count your frames, humor an old tool and post them up.

Adam- We don't tend to focus (as far as i am aware) on frame count. We tend to focus more on the trick aspect versus the actual height of the jump. I have a lot of respect for both, a guy, I used to ride with in AR could absolutely throw down on a chair... No idea on his frame counts, but the guy could boost some backflips (or whatever you guys call them). I just never really got into it, wakeboarding is more up my alley. If you want to see some people going big on a wakeboard though, I'd check out some Randall Harris videos, that guy is nuts, he rides at like 92' and at like 28 mph or something like that....

You didn't know you were coming across as a tool when you were talking smack about Shaun Murray 'only' going 53.5 frames. Oh that was a regular height tower without a tool extension. Reread your posts man.
