thanks, it was an amazing experience, all the Pro´s were great. This was the first time i saw Pro´s skiing and is the greatest show I ever seen. Also the people from Water Ski Magazine were awsome, I really recommend to apply for to the future camps because the experience was unique.

I agree with you 100% Imanol... Great time, Awesome experience... Still stickin' with my MC all the way! The CC is ok, the BU has a really firm wake. the MC is butter!

Here's me and My Ski Partner... How did we manage to get paired up with the Oldest guys at the lake? I wouldn't have changed it if I could!

I agree, I got the most out of Wade's instruction as well. Matt Rini is also a favorite. Speaking of Wade Setting up your Monza... I might need you to take a few pics of your binding placements he helped you with. and Also, Did he write down the measurements for your fin? or did he leave that alone? I've got a monza on the way...

pq2
06-18-2007, 05:26 PM
he wrote me the measurements, so i will take some pics of the ski and i will send you the numbers for the fin. Im sure you will love the ski and it will help you to improve. He changed all my setup, from the binding possition to the fin adjustments. It will take some time to get just to it but im sure at the end it will work better. It was a big change.

I didn't have anyone sign my ski, But you should see the cover of a July issue of Waterski Magazine I passed around... I'll have to take a picture of it and post that.

HOLY CRAP... $100 for 2 sets with Wade's coaching that includes lunch dinner and drinks!?! that is Crazy cheap! He's doing a 3 day clinic in Minneapolis July 9-11th and it's $195 for 2 sets which includes a sandwich!!

Hey Chris Im glad you took those pics of my ski, because I didnt. I asked the Syndicate Team to sign my ski (Wade, Will and Chris) and also Andy Maple. Good memories come everytime I use that ski.

I thought about it at CSM, but I didnt have a white marker. My monza has a black top. How cheesy is that :) ?

VERY COOL thread!!!!!

pq2: Can you post a summary of what Wade told you, or is that top secret?

JF, the setup that he made on my ski is here:

http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=17340

Wade coached me about not droping my hand during the reach to the buoys and keeping my shoulders at a same level, also at the pull after the bouy I was keeping my arms pulled up so he corrected me to loose them during the pull (keep them straight).

And special congrats to pq2 for winning the "most improved" award for the camp. :D Went from 22 off to 32 off in that short time? :eek:

Something like that. I don't have the mag in front of me so I don't remember exactly what they said.

pq2
07-24-2007, 02:03 PM
they did all the modifications to my ski before skiing, so my passes during the training were not very goog, but I think I made a 28off (32mph) during the training. Then I tried to ski at 34mph the day before the competition and i had a bad fall so they told me to run at 32mph.

Well, I can't vouch for the accuracy, but here is what WSM said about you: "The rookie of the group has only been skiing for a year and a half, but he already has the course wired at 15 to 28 off at fast speeds."

And Wade Cox is quoted: "He went from struggling at 22 to ripping 32 by the afternoon." Wade is making you look good, my man! :D

They also did a thing on Chris and each of the other skiers. Chris was used to plug Mastercraft boats too. Good job!

I don't know about CC, but I guess Malibu can brag that they won the team challenge.

The interviews were kinda cool. I shot a Video with Wade in the 197. (not sure if it will ever go anywhere) and also was interviewed audio only by one of the Editors on the Reason I choose an MC.

This is killing me... I can't wait to get my magazine.
