Apologies for the lousy video quality, but this is my Dad skiing behind his boat last weekend. He'll be 82 in January. I'll be happy to still be at the end of the rope at that age!!! So here's to my Dad.

I am going to ask my dad to do the same thing.

Did your dad do a dock start or deep water? I am leaning toward dock start for mine since he is approaching 80 years old. After him...I am going after mom.

We often talk about how old we will ski to. At 61 I fell a whole lot better after seeing your video! That is great and I hope he will ski to a 100!

Thats awesome. My dad, 76, still makes it through the course at 15 off and an ocassional barefoot run. I hope he keeps it up. My dad pulled his dad on two skis at the age of 88. I hope I can still do it at that age.

He 'jump started', from the shore about knee deep water.
