Adam Koch is another.... on the Naish promo vid in 2002 he was boosting HUGE rotating boardoffs. Very impressive.

I'm a snow guy, so i always admired the water guys who showed up at our local spot and showed the snowkiting scene some love. Dave Tyburski and Flash Austin both kill it on the snow by the way.

Chasta by far has had the biggest influence though. He's still pushing the limits too.

The most inspiring rider that I've seen in person is Jeff Kafka. He rips on any surface. Many other honorable mentions, but he stands out in my mind.
