If you guys handed noticed before, I really dig Free Style jumping, and I really dig videos...So needless to say, here is an awsome vid of old school free style jumping. Of course they have embed disabled, because they know that the ODBF is out and about, but seriously check out this one, it is well worth the viewing.
I truly belive that bringing free style back can help bring peeps back to the shore. Wake boarding has not accomplished it. But if you look back a few years, back when there were crowds in the thousands on shore lines, you will see two things that are not around now...Free style jumping and Beer! The showskiers have shown that having a beer tent and some crazy action on the water at all times can bring in big crowds. They can draw as much as 5,000 or even more while our 3 event tournaments seem to be excited to get 200 on a shore. I had to bring my own beer to the Michigan pro tour stop! I'm not harping on Tadd here, that was probably a lake rule or something like that, but I think you bring back the party atmosphere, you will bring back the numbers.
