Why would you say that wakeboarding is not a sport? It fits the definition in every way. Can you even come up with anything that would substantiate that viewpoint? Because it's pretty easy to give...

Aric, you are free to consider whatever you want. But IMO they are very much the same sport. My buddy who is a very good cable rider threw a raley the first time out behind a boat. I've throw 3's...

What size board is he on now? With that kind of experience he should be able to pick out his own board size just by demoing. Seems to me like a 134 would be about the biggest for his weight.
