Parks Bonifay
Can he mount another comeback?

Okay, seriously we like Parks as much as the next guy, but this is starting to sound like a Michael Jordan comeback nightmare. How many times can you try to return to the pinnacle of a sport that you helped elevate to where it is, only to have your efforts shot down?

Sometimes you just have to know when to say when. For the sake of every person that ever has tried a wakeboard, or ever will for that matter, I hope that PB can reclaim his prestigious place as one of the world’s best wakeboarders. He certainly is one of the most talented riders I’ve ever witnessed ride sideways on a board (wakeskate, wakeboard or other) behind a boat.

But for some reason I have a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe it’s the numerous career-ending injury’s followed by rehab and an attempt to return to the level of riding that gave us the first double half-cab roll, 1080, among many others.

I really hope I’m wrong, and has a fairly candid interview with Mr. Bonifay regarding what exactly he’s focusing on, and just why we shouldn’t count him out yet. Check out the full interview at
