You guessed it- mods can change my screen name to skiyaker15off! Just made my first 2 full passes at 15 off 28.6 mph!! well one I skied over 5 ball- not sure if that counts but the other I cleared all 6 by a good margin. Felt just as awesome as I imagined it would- I about jumped out of my ski! It's only fitting that I did it with the guy who first introduced me to the ski course- and tonight was only the second time I've skied with him. I ended up skiing 3 sets plus an extra 2 passes at 30 mph- I'm gonna be sore in a good way tomorrow!

Fatigue LOL! Broke at the waist coming across from 4 to 5- nearly came OTF- and called it a day

there was a time earlier this summer when I thought I would make the 30 mph pass before 28.
I've made some good progression in my off side turn so hopefully I can build on it

15 off is 15 feet off the full length of rope starting at a Full rope being 75 feet long. The terms feet off ,are the amount rope is shortened ,thus making it more difficult to get through the waterski course at set speeds.There is a point i believe at 38, or 39 1/2 off the rope handle in the center of the boat ,is actually too short to physically reach the distance to reach the balls to the side of the course. This is where the REAL skiing starts because the Skier must really stretch to get the ski to round the balls on the outside of the course. Very Brief explanation.!!!!

Nice job...nothing like the first time.

I ran the course for the first time 4 years ago. Now I'm hooked.

Congradulations!!!
Yesterday I made 3 with 15off at 28mph!
My wife has been making all 6 with full rope but this week she made all 6 with 15off at 28mph so there must be something in the air.
We haven't been using the course much until this year when my 14 year old got addicted to the slalom course. So we bought him a nice HO coefficient X in June and yesterday he made all 6 with 22 off at 28mph! I guess you can say he got us back on the course! Now I have to try to catch up with you! :)
