it looks like all of that work that's gone into filming and collecting old footage will air on the 15th on abc:

Not to take anything away from this, but he has said that he feels more comfortable with flip tricks when he's riding switch. He skateboards with one foot forward and wakeskates with the other forward.

It is awesome to see what Danny has done for wakeskating and continues to still do. Most people don't see that while he was filming video parts, going to contests, he was also being flown around for a demo every weekend to introduce people to the sport at a new cable park or a lake demo. Guy would never say no as long as it was getting wakeskating out there. I feel that is part of what is missing today. Most guy don't do that and he is one of the last few left still doing it.

Willing to go on a limb and say he is the most talented in wakeskating yet and probably ever will be, along with the best ambassador for the sport.

He is wakeskating's original grom. His longevity is actually pretty incredible...he's a rad story within wakeskating. Looking at that old trailer "what's in a decade," it looked like this was going to start as an oakley thing. I'm pumped to see how this turned out!

Damn, this is going to be good! So good to see some thomas in there too. Watching narla again, i really miss his presence, and having his creativity around.

I would say this is a pretty good argument for anyone in the Danny Ray camp...

Great write-up and collection of images

Dan is one of those rare people that has managed to motivate me and inspire me throughout my entire course in wakeskating. His part in Such is Life got me hooked, his part in Push Process was a huge comeback and got me fired up to push myself. His Graceland part showed his tenacity and persistence to the sport for over a decade. Definitely got me off my butt when I felt burnt out.

Long Live Dan the Man Hampton. Three Cheers!
