    1950's style. Must be Mendoza, Pope, Jackson, Rosenberg, Stearns, Cash... Witherell... gotta be one of them. Just guessing, it's before before my time.

    @lpskier I was thinking the same thing (but not Lucky).

    @skialex, I zoomed in on the bindings. Almost looks like sandals to me. Probably just nailed them to the ski. Those hippies on the West Coast sure are daring.

    Mike Osborn, Wayne grimdich, Ricky McCormick?

    I don't think even Chuck Norris would jump with bindings like that.
    How about a hint on the date?
    If it was easy, they would call it wakeboarding.

    Well, maybe 1972 Nationals. Ramp doesn't look high/steep enough for it to be 6 feet??
    Note the US Team bathing suit. Kempton, Suyderhoud? Grimditch and Bob LaPoint fought
    it out in Boys Jump, with Wayne setting a National Record of 134' in a strong tail wind.
    Later tied by Chris Redmond in 1973, but not exceeded until 1975.

    Suyderhoud is correct

    EDITED. @Horton , do you know which event? I would guess the 1972 Nationals at Greenlake?

    I have no idea if this is photo is from the same event. Just a similar suit worn by Mike I would guess in the same time frame.

    @sunvalleylaw pretty far off topic except for the one image of Mike tricking.
