    Yeah, I run the course three to four times a week in the summer and do some wakeboarding too.

    Mark, I love watching your videos. I've seen them all on BOS. Where do you get your equipment? Is it custom made?

    You are right about the prop change.

    P.S. My PB in the course is 1.5 @ 35' off, 34 mph.

    Made my 15off@34 pass this weekend thanks to Doug Meeker at The Liquid Edge in Farmer City Illinois.
    * 22 off@32 - probably the 5th time ever.
    * 28 off@31 - for the first time ever - a full pass at 28off at any speed. I know 31 is an odd speed speed, but that small reductin was enough.

    LAZ, got any video of yourself running 34mph at 32 off? I've never really see any shortline behind the OB.

    Two years ago I got to work the rope for Andy Mapple as he ran 34mph from 28 off all the way up the rope to 41 off. That was behind a MC not a SC but still - quite an experience.

    It's September- time to speed it up. I have -15 31 in the bag. Knocking at the door of 32. I'd like to get 32 in the bag this year and push for 34 next year then shorten up. My ski partner made -22 34mph last night.

    So I've been making full passes 15 off @ 28.6mph pretty easily for most of the summer. I finally decided to increase my speed to 30.4mph today. Conditions werent the best as it was blowing about 10-12mph. Not sure if that was a contributor or not but man is it hard making that jump. My best passes were on sets 2 & 4 in which I was able to run 1,2,4,6. 3,5 seemed to be where I was really challenged but mostly bc I didnt have clean finishes off of 2,4. All in all a great day though and its cool to be climbing the mountain again. Hoping to make somewhat consistent full passes at 30.4mph before we hang it up in late October. Goal for next season is to move on up to 32mph...

    PatL - If at your back when making the pass, wind works against you when trying to decelerate for the turn. It can be a contributing factor to missing the ball. Just a guess on my part. But great job stepping up to 30 MPH. No doubt you will be making full passes in the near future. By the way, I took at a look at your location. Leonardtown is surrounded by the Chesapeake. You skiing there, at nearby Saint Mary's Lake, or some other location? - Deerfield
