Yes u do have to have a spotter but u have to roll the dice some times if u want to ride. It is a very small part of the river and does not go to far so its kind of low key. Where u from in Fl i have a house in Pompano beach i ride Ski rixen when i come down there.

Yes I agree that my friends are getting married and having children, but why give up on the sport? I dont get that waterskiing helps me keep my sanity in this crazy world we live in. thats my .002 cents.

as for the spotter I have skied without using mirrors, how ever I fear the eyes of others on the lake ratting me out.
So I try to keep a spotter avail. But this still does not help me with a driver so I can ski. My Gal Pal and I get into arguements over her crappy driving, she feels that she is doing me a favor by not listening to me and following my instructions so I can barefoot. She doesnt under stand by either going faster or cutting the throttle and turning she has a better chance to hurt me, not save me. I am triing to be supportive and give her tips and guidance but no avail. She cant handle the stress is there is more than 2 other boats on the lake. I did locate a few other skiiers through the BFC and footersedge "find a footer" and we have been doing am runs on Gages Lake, In the 60030 area. I will continue to look for and try to find other skiiers/ drivers who are dedicated to the sport. If you are close to me please contact me . I want to make this a grear year for skiing. and if this drought continues I am going to have some troubles getting on and off the lake (its 2 feet down) so the boat launch is getting tricky.
Thanks to all and good skiing !! =)

Hey Im game, I am all about the waterskiing Any of you that are close or willing to drive up to the Grayslake IL area are welcome to come out for a tug.
I am still having issues with my pm on here. I have emailed the web host 2x and no reply as of yet. so if your pm to me fails add me as a friend. and try again.
I am also proud to announce the addition of a 1991 MC Barefoot 200 with a yamaha 200 pro v to my collection. Its in rough shape and in need of repairs but im going to do my best to have it up and going by july 4 th weekend.

The old pro star 190 is still going strong and will soon be ready for the water.

I am still looking for a new lake house on a semi privite lake here in northern IL or southern wis. If you know of any I may be interested please advise.

I also will be waterskiing with the AquaNuts waterski show team in Twin Lakes Wis this summer.

So Im going to be a busy guy. I hope I have time to work... then again .. what for..??
Skiing is more important =) lol .
