    Default who is running the course- what pass are you working on

    If I'm not mistaken we have some great skiers on this forum (I'm not one of them)- what passes are you working on this summer? Myself I just got -15 30.4mph last weekend; probably keep it here and clean it up for the rest of the summer and maybe push up the speed some more in September.

    who else skis the course and what are you guys working on?

    Last season I was running 22 off @ 32. But I had never made my 15@34 pass. So I have decided to go back and get that. Made 5 a couple weeks ago. Making 15@32 my opener right now. I really wanted to get to 28@34 this year but doubtful.

    I'm running 15 off @ 28.6 consistently with gates. Right now I can usually do back to back passes. I plan to increase speed to 30.4 in a couple weeks. I've debated shortening the rope but feel like I need to get 15 off pass to 34.2 before I do that.

    My son is running 15 off at 28, but last year he was up to 15 off at 30. Unfortunately we just got the boat in the water for the first time this year (don't ask but it cost me 1200 dollars!) so he hasn't had much practice. Got the wife through at 28 with full rope too!

    Nice to see others are turning some balls with there moombas. Im at 15 of at 32 and working up. Today I made 3 out of 4 sets all 6 and gates. I think I will be going up to 33 we will see. I have on and off Low Back problems for last 3 years, which is holding me back. So far this year with the help of the Goode powervest Im doing alot better.

    Got up to 4,5 ball at 15 off 32mph last year but sadly this year only been in the water twice and boat was not running well. Not looking too promising this year. maybe things will turn around.

    Well, it's been 3 years since I've been on a ski, and beyond that it was once a year for probably 5 years. 20 years ago when I was good I could manage to clear the course at 28 off at 32-34mph. I was out today and Holy Crap! I'm in terrible shape and my form is absolutely brutal. Bad back or not, I'm going to ski a session or two every weekend and see if I can get back to a reasonable skill level as I had forgotten how much fun it was!!!!!

    Here is a pic from today....what a 40 year old has-been looks like.....note the painful focus on my face....
