So Parrish tied his own world record recently and finally the vid has come out...as an ad for Goode. Gotta say thats some shit. How is it that the first time a vid of a world record run comes out is thru the skiers sponsor weeks after the fact? Stuff like this should be available ASAP, this is not just random bitching but an issue with our sport. We are in the internet age when something only really matters if you can see it immediately. This is the age of 24 hour news shows and internet news sites. When news papers are failing because people can not wait until morning to get their news, the waterski world waits weeks to see a world record run by one of the biggest names in our sport.
Oh and I know that Goode is a company that wants to bank on big name skiers and their results on Goode equipment and all that, but a private company should not come before the good of the sport in general. How is it that their is "official" video shot from the boat that only Goode has? I forsee a conflict of interest here...
More Bitching...Oh wait...this is the CRB right? oh yea, what the hell am I thinking, thought this was the ski flies.
Freaking sweet skiing Chris.
Skip to the 2:20 mark to see the boat video.
Holy crap does he get close to the boat, how do you get a half buoy? jump in the boat? Thats kinda freaky, if he gets going any faster he could get run over...
