Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

take it all with a pinch of salt! i love wakestyle, i just think when it is just about only those 5 cable tricks for so many years it killed it. Competitive wakeboarding died one time too - due to excess mobes , they had to change the rules of competition to include other tricks. it is what is going...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

sick! yeah snowboarding/skiing was 50/50 and now 10/90 there are simply very few young progressive riders left in freestyle kiteboarding promoting obstacle riding is kind of a fail because of the 2 huge problems. nearly everywhere is tidal, cost and the fact that few seem to want to help with the di...

more and more strapless freestyle wont involve dangling, i wasnt dangling, i ride very fast, always have done. powered/ speed strapless is natural progression and i am sure the next generation will want to take it further thanks to pioneers, iain aldridge/ airton for example. take it as a cautionary...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

1000s of kids can do mobes today glued to their board, very few can land any strapless tricks at all. i snapped my ankle doing strapless freestyle, been smashing myself doing wakestyle stuff for years ( recently retired! i think..) never getting an injury like that. wakestyle was fun in the begining...
