    This was very confusing. The Jr. Pro riders were all riding at a much higher level then the pro men riders? Am I missing something. Good edit though

    Andrew,

    Think of the “pro men” riders you see here as minor leaguers. They are “open men” guys who weren’t good enough to start their pro careers as juniors. They compete in the pro men division rather than in juniors because of their age. They may earn the right to ride on tour, but they will never be competitive.

    The junior pros you see here, on the other hand, are legitimate pro tour prospects. Cory Teunissen already has multiple mobe 7s and a 1080 in his bag of tricks. He is a tech destroyer who could be a legitimate threat to Dowdy, Harley, and Phil in 2 or 3 years. His talent level is way above what you see from these open men riders competing as “pro men” in the new format. He was a better rider at age 13 or 14 than those guys will ever be.

    “He was a better rider at age 13 or 14 than those guys will ever be.” <- This is a very bold statement haha how can you make such an assumption.

    "They may earn the right to ride on tour, but they will never be competitive." <- Not a good argument. First of all, these guys competed to earn the right to ride on the pro tour. Therefore they are competitive and have a desire to be competitive.

    Also, please don't make statements like the above under the name @MalibuWake. Its embarrassing to the Malibu boat company and the sport of wakeboarding.
