Thanks, i'll have to measure it when i get home. I think it's close to 5 feet tall, maybe a bit less.
I think that's a pretty good point chris (the full circle comment). Looking at the past and the different names and riding styles--freeboarding, wakeboarding, skurfing and now wakeskating also...we said surfing behind boats was the start of wakeboarding, and now we fully have wakeboarding, wakeskatingand wakesurfing. Then i have this action now magazine from 84 and they called it freeboarding, but what they did was bindingless and they were popping their moves reentry. some guys were hand shaping boards that were short for the time. I thought it closer resembled wakeskating, but it's very much like wakesurfing nowadays.
Here's an ad from a waterski magazine--august 86 i think. It was the issue with tony finn riding the nose of this skurfer. A bindingless board that again, i saw as being something closer to wakeskating because of how he's blasting, but it's very wake surfey also.
Anyway, i am curious as to what boards people will want to collect down the line. Terry kidwell just re-released a version of his first sims pro model snowboard (apparently only 300 of the original were made) and people are pumped on it. I haven't been able to pull up the site, but i guess it's like 1000.00 dollars and it was made by paul schmidtt at ps stix (he also made the last cassette wakeskates).It will just be interesting to see what wake items people eventually search after...
