No doubt this kid is going to be climbing up the list in the near future. Rob Struharik has the best combination of raw talent, desire, dedication and creativity to hit the sport in years. He is way better than Shaun Murray was at this age (17), and looks to be physically stronger than Murray too. Although frequently masked by ridiculous antics and a pair of water-skiing gloves, Robby Stru's talent and style will grow as he does. He's an energetic bundle of smiling, waving, flexing stoke whenever he's near a boat and a wakeboard.
