Wanna see something you've probably never seen before? :-) All behind my outback with Stargazer and Z-box.

I've been disabled my whole life, been skiing for 22 years.

Impressive wake crossings! You were spot on and those can be pretty bumpy in a sit ski! I don't recognize the ski though, whose is it?

ski is a Liquid Access Phoenix. Wake crossings are my downfall. If i could cross them good, I'd be at 32 mph quick. Im sitting up at the wake, always have, cant stop myself. Best is a few at 29mph. (46k)

The competitive sit skiers I have known all do W2Ws on the crossings on a sit ski. I have seen some of the skis break in front of the cage on the force of the crossings. One of the downfalls of a metal cage on a lightweight ski. Some of the top ranked disabled skiers are using cages similar to what is used on snow skis with a shock absorber to absorb some of the impact. Have you tried setting up a trick ski arrangement yet? Had a buddy who was a para who we taught to ski a Boat-O on his trick set up.
