This 5man deep w/ NO SKIS was taken a few years back in Alabama, at the ending of a M.Seipel barefoot clinic.
That's (atlfootr) me, in the middle of my bud's.

Here is the 5 man we pulled a few years ago behind my 97 PS190 with the LT-1. It was me and 4 guys that ski with the KWAHAMOTs in Tomahawk, WI. This picture was taken in front of their show site on the Wisconsin River.

Yep! I got to do about 5 practice jumps before doing it in 2 shows. I wanted to do a gainer but the guy driving had never done them before and he was a little sketchy on them. There was also a wire that I had to jump out to clear.

Love the picture of the KWAHAMOTs! I skied pro with a some of them....Tim Francisco, Eric Blacky Grail, and Brian Kjar.

Sizz, I remember explaining this to Hoosier at Mag Mania after Rock and Sassy demonstrated this trick. He was laughing so hard I thought he was gonna pee his pants! Of course, there was alcohol involved. Ask Rock or Sassy for the procedure to perform this trick:)

Boom without skis-SwingOut!
Cops-They started to hassle me but relaxed after they found out I was with the show. They said that they usually just fish jumpers out of the water after they jump. They thought I was nuts.
I beleive it was something like 38 feet into 7 feet of H2O.

The avatar pic is actually a 197 w/ a mini tower. That one is sold to a customer:D We won't get to touch that one!

However, the 214 will definetly get some hours :) Do you guys have dry suits, or are we waiting until the water is 55ish?

Keep the front guy up on that boom until you are all the way back on the ankles and standing TALL, there will be a lot of weight to support and you'll fade fast in a squat. Then he can slowly let off the boom all the way out. Communicate so your front guy doesn't let go before you do! It took us 2 tries, first time he let off too quick and I slipped off his legs.
