Odie - Excellent pics! Thanks for posting. Wake looks pretty flat. What boat speed? - Deerfield

Pics are running at 31 mph... we keep nothing in the boat though :)

My buddy who was learning was at 24-25mph

sweet lake.......got an 07. Love it. A skier's dream!
It's sad the season is coming to an end. It's never long enough is it?

--- Yes it is... although I managed 4 days a week at the lake this year, benefits of being your own boss I guess... :)

It wasn't exactly the dream summer weather-wise though. Ran the course for the first time this year successfully - 15 off 31 mph numerous times. Needless to say I'm quite happy with my progress :D

I'm planning to get to the states twice this winter to ski and continue the progress!

Hey Odie, I spent my whole spring in Milton. Was doing some contract cleanup work at a Mattamy Project. Love the lake pics. Great effect with the B&W pic. Our good skiing is just starting. Everyone is off the lake and temps are holding for another couple weeks yet.

lucky man! the weather here is still great, but its dropping fast over the next week (at least according to the weathernetwork)...

Were you at the mattamy stelumar building? Where they factory made the homes? Too bad I didnt know you were in Milton, we couldve had a beer!

So....we meet again...

Where are you going in the winter? We have a trip planned to McGinnis ski school (near Ft. Lauderdale) in December and a ski school to be named later for a week in April.

I'd imagine he's talking to me! Since we're both actively talking on fifteenoff.com!

I've been scanning the options for a while now, and haven't made a decision... got the new issue of Waterski today.... and I have to say, Ski paradise acapulco looks more and more tempting every time I read about it!

I was originally planning to get to H20z in Charleston (friends live near by) but it sounds like theyre booked up...

what are your thoughts Laz?

I have been to McGinnis and Ann does a great job on a nice site. But I have also been to Ski Paradise and honestly - if you have never been there, it is a must at least once in your ski career. The people that it draws, Gordon and Gabriella and the staff, the Villa, the site, all just terrific.

Just remember to bring Duct Tape and Super Glue (for your hands), but put them in your checked luggage or they may get confiscated.

I envy you guys - coaching is a great way to spend a week.

I would love to go to Ski Paradise, but I'm not sure there is enough for my kids (ages 4, 7, 9) to do there and I'm not sure I want to leave them at home for a week.

So, I think we are going to stay at or near Disney in April and try and get out for 4 half days to a local ski school.

Last year we stayed at the Swiss Ski School. That was a fantastic week. Still deciding.. any suggestions?

P.S. Attached is my 7 year old from 2 weeks ago.

You bet.. As per Drew Ross' suggestion, we are going look at a 59' O'brien Jr. Allegience when in Florida.
