Well boys, we went out this evening and I thought I would give it a shot again. And.... :woohoo:I did it!! I got up on one ski!! Deep water start too. I tried six times and got up three. Skied for quite a while until a roller took me out. But its ok. I just tried again.

I would like to give you guys a big THANK YOU for the moral support and all of the tips. Especially my husband and Gene Dobies, what you two told me worked. Thanks guys!!

Here are a couple of pictures of me skiing on one ski. :)

Maybe it's my POS computer but all I see is a blur.... Looks like a tower bar on the right, but thats all I could make out.

That's awesome! I know so many wakeboarders that have never skied and don't have any interest to try.

Thanks guys! I have been trying to get up for 3 years now. Finally it all clicked. What a rush!!:)

When I was in the water for the second try a Malibu full of people had just dropped a skier real close to us. I got ready for the pull, got up and was so excited that I did it I let go of the rope and yelled. (I was surprised I think.) We all had a little victory yelling. The people in the Malibu probably thought we were just some more "a..holes with a MasterCraft" I think. ;)

I won't be able to justify a new ski for myself with the hubby. 1. I just bought (a week ago) a new 2005 HO wakeboard with bindings for myself. And 2. We both ski LFF so I can just use his 2003 Phantom Truth when I get a little better. But I can dream. :)

Yeah, that Phantom Truth is such a beginner ski. You'll definitely need to get a new one when you get better. ;)

Congratulations. Nice to see a boarder going old shcool and strapping on a slalom ski. My sking partner always makes a comment after the early morning glass run about how much fum slalom is. Hold on thight and pull hard.
