1st ski run since memorial day 2009. I added a high wrap rear boot, got up on the second try and wow, that rear boot really makes you stay back on the ski, no wheelies or anything, just not on top of the tip, made about 15 to 18 good turns at 30 mph at 15 off , then gased out. felt good to get out and ski again.:p

JV great to hear, just one question. What's with the 15 mnth break in between? Slalom is meant to be enjoyed and done on a regular basis :)

last summer we had our baby girl Abby, and the weekend weather kepted us at the house and out of the boat. my last ski was before she was born, my buddy driving and my 9 year old spotting at 7 am before the lake was full on the holiday weekend 09. then wakesurfing set in and the baby could join us at 10 to 11 mph and the whole family could come.

now she is one and we went out and skied when the lake was clear, my buddies wife runs courses in ft lauderdale couple time a winter so we went at it.:p felt really good.


so kane, yes very busy;)
