UMP, that is such a cool picture! Just think how good of a skier that person would be with skis like we have today and good ski boat to pull him.

I remeber Ben skiing behind a little fishing boat with a small motor just for kicks and to say he did it. It took a lot of muscle to get up out of the water because the boat doesn't do much for you. I'm sure the guy in the picutre had to do his share of work to get up on the water.
