Tell Bob that Pete from Colorado said hi. Skied with him last year in Winter Haven. He's got a great set up out there. Great guy, too. I'd love to make it out there again. Is this a yearly event??

Sounds neat, how long does the winner normally barefoot?It's a 4-5man Team event, everyone foot's in rotation.
Some guy's can foot as long as 20 minutes, others 4 or 5 minutes as best.
Boat speeds in high 45's -50 mph.

To see first hand what these events are like, click link and then movie :popcorn:

That was awsome! Was that a female barefoot team competing? My daughters foot, but not for a long time/distance. All of these footin videos are getting me stoked for next year. I am going to learn some new tricks.

No can do, ATLfooter. Just not in the cards this year with work, etc. Maybe next year. Also, hope to make a Scarpa trip early next year (Jan/Feb).

I'm 10 minutes away from his school, swing bye for sum pulls!
BTW, I have two friends in your area ... Sue Swartz and Greg Jardine.
Have you heard of either of 'em?

ATLFooter, thanks for the offer of some pulls. I'll definitely take you up on that.

I met Greg once at a tournament in Loveland last September (2005). He wasn't at any of the Colorado tournaments this year so don't know what he's been up to. I've never met Sue. Do you know who she skis with? Or if she still foots. I know most of the footers in the small community here but never met her.
