Wow! Not so sure I am convinced. For the way Jackson is hyping this boat, that is a pretty ordinary performance for both of those guys! EJ says he thinks he can do 360 blunts on bus eater, and Nick thinks he can do double Air screws, given those are wave tricks, but never the less. This doesn't seem all that different. To me it looks like the same exact rides they would have in the last generation All Star in that feature. Just an observation!

note the loop around 2:25 where nick troutman lands on his bow... I think ej does it too earlier in the video, but it isn't as obvious.

Those two really need some pointers on how to playboat. In their front surfs they aren't keeping their nose up enough and it's causing them to pearl. In fact, multiple times they pearl so bad that they flip all the way over! And in their side surfs they get all discombobulated and flip all over the place sometimes coming completely out of the water! Have this Nick and EJ give me a call and I can give them some pointers.

What! No video of the raft going sideways through the wave in the park? Bummer!

I especially like the expression on Stephen Wright's face around 1:18. It's an "I can't believe how big that was!" look. Incredible.

I can confirm from watching these guys at both Vail and here in Salida that boat does indeed go bigger than the old All Star. I saw Greg Parker doing aerial phonix monkeys a couple of days ago and that trick has always looked slurpy and stuck to the water to me. maybe I will go playboating today and borrow one and I can give you the working man's review.
