Clearly a better chef than skier.:D:D

JK Ric, looks like y'all had a great time.

I think I want another shot at that skyski. I can't believe your daughter can do it and I couldn't.:mad:

Learning to get up on the Sky Ski can be a real challenge, no question. On the upside, once that part of the process is acquired, things can move along pretty rapidly.

You may remember AirJunky (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=303)...he used to post here a lot before he "upgraded" (his words, not mine) to a Malibu. He's quite accomplished and recently posted his concept for "training wheels" for the Sky Ski. It allows the rider to get up on the ski at about 5-6 mph, he says, so they can learn the technique for getting up, and for "taxiing" behind the boat without inadvertently and prematurely getting on the foil, which usually results in a crash. Having taught a lot of people to ride the thing, I think this is a very clever concept. Here are the pics he's posted on another site.

My father will be here on Friday and Chastity's b-day/party is Saturday. I think we're going to be out at Kinglsey mid-afternoon to evening on Sunday on my boat.

But, thank you, as always for the offer. (You know I love that "original" x-star wake!!) 8p

That DOES sound good. Probably just shake instead?, I'm not much of a stirrer. :D I really just want to use my shakers!

That looks like so much fun Dog and Tricky. It is much easier to get going on a tower than a regular ski pole. I could have used those trainers attached to the chair I used a few weeks ago. Dang daughter can ride the chair where ever she wants to. Me, up, down, up, crash!
