Why'd you show us a video of a chase car??

Chase car? The guy was on pole then messed up the start, got pushed to 10th and got back for a podium finish I'd say that's pretty exciting

Lol, I guess I should've watched the whole thing. Everything I saw was him getting passed. 20 minutes is a long time when the kids are home.

I watched the first 7 or so and he made some really excellent late braking moves (other than an early VERY late braking error). It was fun to watch for sure! Those karts are a little out of my league at the moment...

Yeah 250km/h+ in a go kart is pretty nuts, is like to try and put up some times in one though that would be a blast!

Wakeboarding, soccer, and CrossFit. When I moved from CO to AL I thought it would suck not getting to ride nearly as much, but it turns out I ride just as often. When the water is choppy we wakesurf. Either way its a great way to spend time with family and friends. There's definitely a different dynamic to it since only one person rides at a time. There's less riding time, but its still fun and very relaxing to sit in the boat with friends, tunes, and beer. I'm certainly not complaining!

It's interesting to me how similar the two are. Not just in the riding itself, but the subculture of each is nearly identical. They even mimick each other in films. The year after That's It That's All came out, the Hyperlite team movie (Hyperlite is like the Burton of wake) "Rewritten" hit. It copied a lot from TITA. From little things like editing in cuts from walkie talkie dialogue to big things like instead of each rider getting their own film segment, each location gets its own section with all the riders sessioning it in their own way. First time I've seen that in a wake film. And some of the exact same music, too. It seems like its mostly wake ripping off snow, but that may be bc I'm a little biased...
