I'm assuming that a red flag warning means it is unseasonably dry with no winds?????

Made 2 runs and ended the last, in whitecaps :rolleyes:

Why would you think it would get boring. I foot and ski, but if there is no course skiing is uneventful to me, just back and forth. With footing you always have the challenge of learning a new trick

I was just skiing with Keith St. Onge two weeks ago, and my dad got up long line for the first time down there, and he's the ripe old age of 55! I was working on my back toe holds, and he was working on the very basics, and the best part was, Keith was as patient with him as with me. I would highly recommend Keith for anyone looking to get some GREAT instruction! And also thanks to AtlFooter, for helping us Northerner's make the most of our time in Winter Haven. He went out of his way to make sure we had the best time we possibly could. Everyone in our group was very impressed to see how a few posts on TT can lead to someone going out of their way as much as he did! Thanks again Rob, and watch for the UPS man sometime mid next week!:friday:

I am brand new to the sight and have enjoyed checking it out. I love to foot and ski. However, I live in a cold climate so staying in shape during the loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong winter months is always a struggle. Now that I have reached my 30's the pounds just stay a little too easy...

Anyone have any fun ski related workouts.

WELCOME!

Workouts are not supposed to be fun, if they were, they would be called fun-outs....haha

Anyway, the BEST off season workout to keep your Skiing muscles in check?
Pull-ups and or a Rowing machine. Also, a balance ball is great to use to help maintain your level of balance.

great pics!! How much force is applied to your teeth and jaws for that one trick?

sizzler
06-13-2007, 10:17 AM
i've been doing it for about 20 yrs.....so ,its become natural...its not too difficult a trick......but it looks good........putting your head through the handle is way scarier:D

CoFooter
06-13-2007, 05:30 PM
I agree with you Sizzler, way too scary for that rope on neck trick. I'm not putting my neck in a noose at 40mph. Somebody at a tourney out here died a few years back doing just that. Went out the front and the handle collapsed around his neck. Teeth hold looks cool though, good job.

My entire life i've never been able to balance on a slalom ski while getting pulled out of the water... so I was never able to do it.

got up first time 2 days ago.. had the time of my life!!!! leaning and cutting and crossing the wake is just so much more exciting on a slalom ski then barefooting... buttttt barefotting you can go backwords, and spin around on your back, and have alot more fun :P

i can definatly say by the end of summer, i'm ganna be doing the course.

Teeth hold looks cool though, good job.Both neck / teeth hold tricks use to be in my runs, back then as now the points aren't high enough to justify the risk ---
10 or 20 points each, I think :rolleyes:

I miss footing! I got 2 or 3 quick rides in before I re-injured my knee. After it was all done, one of my footing buddies said, "I just want to know how good it felt to foot after that long.: I just smiled and said GREAT!

CoFooter
06-17-2007, 01:33 AM
Theres nothing like it Tex. Too bad about the knee. I ripped a groin muscle last night getting too anxious on a back deep. Tried to foot this AM and couldn't even keep my foot over the rope on my forward start. Spent the day driving/watching. I feel your pain. Get well soon.

peason
06-17-2007, 02:07 AM
Sorry to hear about all of the injuries. I am off to my best start for barefooting this year. Had a lot of good runs - of course I don't do anything too spectacular. It's great to be able to get out and have a good run. Hopefully everyone will be back on the horse soon.

atl, those videos are NUTS! do you know whos in them?If you look closely there's a list somewhere that's directed to the names of the footers in the video ...
otherwise I spend the time to attempt to find it for you and c/p, if you can't find it yourself.

Likewise. Groin is healed, nice to be able to walk/ski again. I think sizzler above has been injury free too long and he is forgettin how much he misses being injured doin that neckhold........

atlfootr
07-14-2007, 12:19 PM
I gave those up long ago :rolleyes: Both because of the low points and safety factor.
Still doing everything else ....

Sizzler, pain is just weakness leaving your body. Lot of us old farts out here doing this crazy stuff. Il took my first lesson at 40, now 44. I figure I got another 20 yrs before I need to take up golf. keep on rippin it up.

Wonder'n if you ever plan on com'n to Florida, Winter Haven to be percise?

CoFooter
07-18-2007, 02:25 PM
Would like to. I tried to get to Scarpa/KSO earlier this year, but work and other commits squashed that. This spring for sure come hell or high water. I'll definitely let you know.

I hate to interrupt here but I finally got up long line over vacation this year :banana: It was really cool. I was pretty jazzed about it. I have been footin' off the boom for several years now. I have put off trying long line since my feet get so hot I figured the short runs wouldn't be worth it. Boy was I wrong! How cool to finally get up back there! And THank you to casx2 for the great driving! First time I tried to get up back there (several years ago) my brother was driving....let's just say it wasn't pretty. My boy was able to get me out there and I stood up on the first try. Now I need to start trying tumbles back there now.

peason

Way to go, Captain. Once you go long line, its hard to want to go back to the boom. Great job.
