Thought some of you short line skiers would like to see Parker AZ. It's just below Lake Havasu.

I have no clue. You'd have to ask Todd Haig or Randy Davis. But, it doesn't appear that he has a helmet cam on.

They get back up and finish the race.

That is nuts. I assume the water way was cleared? It looks narrow in some spots.

It's a sport and all sports have dangers.

I'd much rather be the guy paying out the rope then the guy no the other end of it.

They clear the course. The river gets a little narrow, but is a couple hundred yards wide at most stops.

Huh? That observer, driver and skier are one of the most successful teams in the sport. What was he doing that made you think he was a fool? The Maha holeshots are a great way to get the 200' lines out nice and quick.

Na, my bud that used to be the race director for the Catalina Race and Pres of the Long Beach Boat and Ski Club sent it to me.

btw: I still ski more then I surf and mostly over 10 mile runs.

I'm with you, along with the mai tai buckets at the nautical inn and the wild *** burritos at that joint in Parker. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of the place. In fact, the last time I was there was after the Parker sprint races at Blue Water.

Badenoch's is good, but our favorite breakfast on the river is Fox's.

Last weekend, I did have to make a pitstop at Badenoch's on my way up to Havasu from Blythe because the girls in my truck wanted the 32 ounce mimosas the kick start the weekend! They literally pour 3/4's of a bottle of champagne in each cup. :cool:
