Did anyone else catch Sunday night's "Nitro Circus" with Travis Pastrana and crew?

They were hanging out with Bonifay and his X-star. Doing a bunch of outrageous goofy stuff behind the boat. Kite tubing etc. Some good wipeouts. Bonifay had one small segment where he took his feet out of the bindings while boarding, stood on the front of board, then sat down, planted, and footed away.

Mastercraft got some decent air time out of it. I got a few calls from people that watched it saying they saw my new boat. So what if they think my X2 is the same thing as Bonifay's wrapped Xstar. :)

Sorry Sodar. Didn't see that thread listed. Nobody seemed to care the first time round apparently either.

No need to apologize... just showing that someone else saw it too.

How can he stand on the tip of the board, makes no sense.

Somebody need to send him a letter telling him he can't do that. It's against the law... of physics. :mad:

How the heck can he even get out of his boots while moving??

Well, I hadn't seen it and I thank you both!:D

Was thinking the same thing about being on the front of the board. Do you think he has some sort of foil applying down force on the back of the board???

That show is awesome! The Slip and Bleed (instead of slip and slide) was good too! :D

o yea that episode was a riot... and if you notice when pastrana "rode away" from the 2 story dock start... that was all Bonifay... basically he got yanked off and hung on while Parks stopped and let him get back on the bike and took off again...

Pastrana is INSANE though... great show... been catchin' up on some of the old episodes

wakeX2wake,
I really want to try riding on the front of the board like that... what speed where you pulling, cuz from the pics, it looks like its rather slow? It seems it would defy physics but it apparently can be done

Believe Byerly was the first to make it famous on a wakeskate a while back in the "wakeboarding scene". Obviously surfers were the first. With the boat pulling you and you weight spread out over the board it actually helps going wakeboard speed rather than slower. We have tried and succeeded at this trick as well. You just don't have enough force from gravity to sink the board while your momentum is keeping you forward. There is some kind of fancy equation to give you the actaul weight the board is experiencing from you while you're moving, but I can't recall. My college engineering days are long gone.

someone should tell his friend to get his frickin' shoes off the vinyl. :)

I wanna try the bike/ski! That might be a blast! Maybe we'll build one and take it to CSM!

get video... put it on youtube... and we'll work on getting CSM 2010 on MTV

I call BS no way that board does not go forward way before he gets to the tip.

Someone is hanging on the back of the board dragging in the water.

I am sure everyone saw it but the new season with the crew on lake havasu? Pretty crazy stuff, and did Parks switch to an X2?

Fun stuff.

Buddy of mine built one of those bike-boards awhile back. He said it was fun, they just kept snapping ropes every time someone ate it.

Hangin' 10, and it can be done, don't know the physics behind it, but it works

It will never work for you! You can't be 250+ lbs for this to work. Hell, your board nearly sinks with you IN the bindings! :D

Please explain, I have to try this now! :D
