The highly anticcipated pro men's division lived up to the hype. While 2008 Cablestock runner Josh Rice was stuck judging due to an arm injury, The top two U.S. cable wakeboarders: Tom Fooshee (Ranked #1 in the world) and Donald Shelbrick (Ranked #4 in the world) were on hand to compete in the ideal conditions. Donald had an almost flawless run of air tricks which included both regular and switch front to blinds, roll to blinds, blind judges, s-bends to blind and a double s-bend and a mobe. The pressure was put on Tom who came off the dock last and had the benefit of viewing his competitors' runs. Tom's versatile run included hits on every structure in the course and a degree of difficulty never seen before in a cable competition. His run included: TSBS7, HSBS7, Pete Rose 5, Front to Blind, Mobe, Switch Mobe, Role to Blind, Transfer 450, Gap BS450 on the kink rail, and last but not least a S-Mobe 5. Tom saved his best trick for last, an S-Mobe 5 which is an S-bend with a 540 degree spin coming out of the trick. Not only did Tom make the trick, but he grabbed it and landed as clean as could be. There is something to be said for the adrenaline and hype that is built around a tournament format and watching the best cable rider in the world land a new trick. Similar to the women's division, the pro division saw riders encouraging each other on, which was never more evident than when Kyle Reed was encouraged to try a slim chance and made his first one ever. It is the camaraderie that makes TSR what it is, and for that reason this year's Fall Festival was one of the best events ever hosted at Texas Ski Ranch.
