Was thinking about this awesome board this weekend.. and was thinking of all the members and posters.. How many skiers vs. wakeboarders are out there. I know "times are changing"... and there seem to be a lot more wakeboarders/snow boarders than slalom/alpine snow skiers... Curious Tom. I'm an alpine snow skier and a slalom water skier. :cool:

Slalom mostly for me. But I'll go out and trick or wakeboard when the water is goofed up by the "tubers".

Ninety percent Slalom for me. Just an occassional knee board or trick ski. Bought a wake board this year, I think I will leave it for the kids.

Powerslot 82, Funny you mention that you bought a wake board this year... He is my story... I bought a cheap thin board a fews years back... and was going to give it a try. Before I could try it out.. my father in law lent it out to his brother in laws kids.. (guess that would make them my second cousins)... anyway... They snapped it in half. :eek3: My father in law felt so bad he picked a new NICE NEW wake board... I have tried it a few times... have not been up on it yet... Do not want to waste my energy trying to get up on it... I'll leave it for the younger crowd. They sure like it. :)

I wakeboard and ski, and snowboard and snow ski. Still best at skiis, but the boards are really fun and very different.

I know I am old fashioned, but here are my Ideas.

Years ago when we skied on public water my kids would ask why there are so many jet skis. My answer was because they are cheap and easy to ride. Then when they asked why are there so many wakeboarders and very few trick skiers.They got a similar answer. Because it is easy.

I always challenge wakeboarders to learn a flip on a trick ski. I have not found one yet who has done it.

Traditional three event for me.

Jump, Sky Ski, Barefoot, Wakeboard, occassional Slalom.

15 years ago I was slalom skiing/kneeboarding/barefooting/occasional trick skiing. Got into wakeboarding when Tony Finn introduced the Skurfer.

Kind of got away from it all for a few years. When I picked it back up I was definitely biased towards the wakeboard, mostly due to the available tow boats at the time.

Since my reintroduction to a real towboat, I've been slaloming and wakeboarding. Took a run through a slalom course for the first time in 12 years yesterday.

Both disciplines have their appeal. The friction between some wakeboarders/slalom skiiers (as in snowboarding/snow skiing) is asinine.:rolleyes:

I would like to see if I can still barefoot...

I'm a little different. I'm a die hard slalom skier, but I also snowboard. I've never been on snow skis. I might wakeboard once a year.

Wakeboarding is growing in popularity. Unfortunately the ever increasing wake sizes are destroying the shore lines on our ski lakes.

Slalom and wakeboard a few times a year; Barefoot the rest of the time.

And as I hold my head low, I do take the family tubing once in a while.

Footin-I hope that the family "tubes" at 42mph so that you can hang onto the back of the tube and get an extra foot run!

I just ski, I don't like what wakeboarders and there "my boat cant make biger wake then yours"do good water.
They throw rollers from one end of the lake to the other. :mad:
And as far as snowboarders most of them are not worth the f---- that got them here! :mad: That's just the way I feel I'm just a old school hard core skier :D

Personally, I'm adicted to the power and speed of the slalom ski. Nothing like it my book. I'm sure that big air boarders might say the same.

I wonder how well one can pop off big air on a wakeboard as you get up there in years. The wear and tear on the lower back has got to add up. It seems pretty well demonstrated that you can keep skiing for a long time ... be curious to see how the boarders hold up.

I guess if there's any rub with the wakeboarders it centers around the size of the wake. As the big air movement has developed and associated emphasis on big wakes the two sports just seem to be going in different directions. Compounding this is the difference in boat speeds, the typical higher number or crashes and more pickup runs with a wakeboard session and you've dug a pretty good hole in the lake. :(

If I have pet peeve - skiers or wakerboards - it's the large "power turn" initiated to pickup a downed skier/rider. :mad: Grrr....throttle down, not up when you loose someone.

I'd say that i'm a slalom skier/barefooter first and foremost but during the choppy times i love to hop on either the wakeboard or wakeskate. I started putting on the trick skis again this year and am learning the basics. Because i'm alot younger then most people on the site i do see wakeboarding as alot of fun but not as fun as walking on top of the water at 41 mph! I am a snow ski instructor in the winter and love skiing more then anything else. I own a snowboard but i only used it three times last season out of at least 20 trips. I'm more oldschool then most of my friends but thats just the way i was raised. It depends on who i'm with if i'm with my friend who is a major wakeboarder (1st in nationals) then i'm gonna wakeboard but if i'm with my dad and his friends then i'm putting on the slalom. The only time i would board before doing the alternative is skateboarding because "aggressive inline skating" could be the queerist then i've ever seen PULL YOUR PANTS UP!

Anywho i think i'm rambling.

First and foremost slalom. Then mabye an occassional wake board or trick ski. Been wanting to try footing and may have to hook up the barefoot boom this season. As far as snow goes Converted from both Skiing and Snowboarding to Telemarking
Tele is the best cross between skiing and snowboarding you can still pound through the bumps, or lay out a carve with bent knee Can't say enough about Tele. Just imagine doing 500 lunges (sp) each day on the weekend.
Great now I'm thinking about winter and we still have 2 months of H2O skiing left!!!!
My goal this year is to snowski on Sat and Waterski on Sun I'll see if I can get it done!

NeilM
09-13-2004, 09:40 PM
Until this year, mostly slalom. Each puts different stress on my knee (operation last year), so I found that I alternated back and forth more than in previous years, (equalize the pain:o ) then, of course, when it got choppy, I was trying to ride the dang wakesurfer..

One of these days, I"m gonna try out a foil...

AirJunky

I started off slalom skiing years ago when there was nothing else but slalom skiing or kneeboarding. But the only problem with recreational slalom skiing is that there's no motivation to run a 6 buoy course WITHOUT the course! Many people on lakes or rivers don't have the course to ski. I agree, there's nothing more exhilarating than slicing through 6 buoys at 40+ mph! But I don't find any enjoyment at doing it with a make-believe course. That's why I started skurfing, then eventually wakeboarding. You don't need a course to pull off tricks and fool around on the wake. All you need is open water to enjoy yourselves. Rough water is just as hated by wakeboarders as it is skiiers! But now, I'm a wakeboarder at heart. And like anything else in sports, you'll do anything to get better at the sport you love. It just so happens that its easier to pull off huge tricks with a bigger wake! Sorry skiiers, but we're just going to have to learn to live together! But I feel your pain when I see you on the lakes as I'm passing you by pulling off backrolls, rolls-to-revert, scarecrows, front rolls, elephants, etc!

Skiufool
09-14-2004, 02:15 AM
Also, if you're a TRUE water enthusiast...You can do it all on the water: slalom, kneeboard, wakeboard, barefoot, sky ski, jump ski...and enjoy them all the same!

i'm with you ski fool......there's enough in this world for all of us.....i foot,board, slalom,trick(badly),jump (ski and feet) and would never diss the wife for only being able to board,(well it is easier than slalom)..my girls both board (9+7) but find it difficult on skis...we all tube(even me) altho' i do tend to hang off the back and foot...the girls love it!!!!!

I also bought the original skurfer & was hooked for years & years. Then - my knees started to go so I'm back to 90% slalom, 9% barefoot & 1% wakeboard.

Mastercrafting - where do you teach? I've been a snow ski instructer for 14, going on 15 years now at a local resort in PA. :headbang:

I grew up on snow skis and waterskis (never had any interest in snowboarding). I have really enjoyed getting into wakeboarding and now it is hard to decide whether to board or ski when I go out. I love both. The only thing I can figure is that I gave up NASTAR racing as a teen because I liked Freestyle skiing better (there were no such things as snowboard then). Maybe it is the same dilema with Slolom vs. wakeboarding. I guess I'll just enjoy both. :dance:

It is by far the longest I have ever held a job (although it is part time). Maybe it's because I only work 4 out of 12 months?

My goal in life is to earn enough money at my "real job" to be able to afford to quit my "real job" & be supported by a full-time ski instructor job.:D

I started wakeboarding, then got bored on vacation a couple years back and used a friends comp slalom ski. :love: Never Looked back. It is something about the speed that hooked me. I do still put the wakeboard on when the chopped is high. It has help my wakeboarding, because hitting the wake a 17 mph is nothing compared to whipping across at 36 mph. :banana: You should see my brother who has bare footed semi-pro in FL ride my board, it it always great for a laugh! :purplaugh I would hate for me to try bare footing long line, not so funny and ouch! :noface:

I've been skiing for 40+ years and still love to slalom, trick, and occassionally 'foot. I've also been wakeboarding with my kids since we bought a Skurfer (lost after using it for barefoot starts), then a Hyperlite Perez (single ended and hard to control), and now a Hyperlite Fluid (works good!). My kids (now all adults) like to kneeboard but it's too hard on my aged frame (no legs to absorb the shocks). Slalom (Goode 9200 SE) is still the most satisfying. I think I'm better at skiing than boarding so I like skiing better but I voted for both. Must be that it's hard to teach old dogs new tricks.

We go out early on Sunday morning, Idle out and the first pull is always barefooting, next is skiing for the wife, next is skiing for me, then my son ski's. After a few boats pull out we try the other side of the lake and I wakeboard. I honestly love all three and definitley am not the master of any, but the family has a good time.

Hi all,
I've never tried snow skiing, snow boarding, water skiing or surfing. Water was for drinking and fishing. Three years ago some friends introduced my family to wakeboarding. Two days later, my two daughters, my wife and I were hooked. Just purchased our first tow boat, X-2. We love to wakeboard and look forward to many days on the lake.

I'm a little different. I'm a die hard slalom skier, but I also snowboard. I've never been on snow skis. I might wakeboard once a year.

Wakeboarding is growing in popularity. Unfortunately the ever increasing wake sizes are destroying the shore lines on our ski lakes.
I think a good storm would stir up waves as big as any wake a boat could put out.

ski lakes arent big enough to create big waves during a storm

Liberty Lake sure is. But it's not a "ski lake", just a lake we ski on a lot. It's not even very big, 711 acres, takes me about 20 min. to ski all the way around it. But let the wind kick up & we have 2' rollers hittin the beach.

Wakeboarding here. I've ski'ed before but never really enjoyed myself like I do on a wakeboard (Not that I am any good.)

But.... we do a lot of wake surfing which is loads fun, easy on the joints and bodies, and easy enough to do that any uncoordinated fool can get up and do it even if you couldn't pull their fat *** out of the water any other way.

Some of the cousins still strap on their skis every trip and let it rip and we do try to get the kids up on them at some point. And we all like to watch me get thrown around at high speeds on the tube.

Wakeboard here too. I also know how to slalom ski, but our family only has a set of combo skis so I imagine it is different than all off you who truly slalom. I would like to learn this year. I have yet to find a course in our area. We do it all on the water too, depends who is with us. We just got a wakeskate this year, so can't wait to try that out, we have a knee board, and of course can't forget the tubes too. The point is we love to be on the water. You know we all have one thing in common, is it the love of the sport that brought us all together or the love of the boat?

Ski and wakeboard both. For me wakeboarding is alot more fun but I like to ride one ski from time to time just to remember why I feel in love with Mastercraft boats. Nothin like a good run on glass early in the morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang:On the snow it is skis only.
