Cool to see records being set in Colorado.

My thinking too... Needs more amplitude! Wave is not big enough to earn a record score like that.

That may be a pro ride but its on a JV wave! Just saying.

Well, my lack of punctuation did not make my point clear. That was a pretty incredible run, mellow wave or not.

That is an awesome ride but I would have to agree with dirt. The wave is not at pro quality and Dane left a couple ticks out of the mix that he usually throws in. He almost feel off the wave twice. I've seen him go bigger! Seems like the judges were scoring a bit high. IMHO.

The pros show up and paddle on what's available. This year, at these levels, this was the best feature in the park available for the comp. Lodo was bigger and would have given up bigger tricks but was flushy and half of the ride would have been spent paddling back up to the wave. What a feature like this does show off is a great paddler's ability to link tricks. And that is what Dane did and why he scored so high. The scoring was accurate. The ride was awesome.

No, they weren't the biggest tricks ever but actually Dane pretty much owns them too.

Impressive ride, he was getting close to the back loop McNasty combo on Sunday.

Too bad the comp couldn't be in the original hole above the bridge, it was the best feature in the park and there would have been plenty of amplitude.

I 100% disagree. It takes more skill to link moves on a flushy wave. Anyone can link up moves in a tiny sticky hole. Its just that the pros do it even better! Linking moves on a flushy wave would showcase real skills!

Even though the scoring may be technically accurate, it does not reflect the over all ride. Which in this case was low amplitude. There should be a deduction for small waves. I've seen Dane pull off better rides and I fear what he'll be sticking next month.

I'd give him the best freestyler on the planet award but not biased on that ride.
