Why are footers always posing like that? :) I'm kind of serious though. I have all the respect in the world for the people who can barefoot. I certainly haven't gotten up long line. I just kept wondering when I was watching The Secret Spot dvd. It was like giving the thumbs up was one of the tricks you learn.

Example from a GIS on the subject.

Too many face plants, at least that was my excuse.

Doesn't it simply scream I'M HARDCORE!!!

If they were throwing peace signs it'd be a major difference eh?

I have a Skitt Skatt made by Cypress Gardens. Its about a 30" ski w/ two toe holes. Also have a Flying Disk by Cypress Gardens . Both have to be from the mid 60's all wood construction. :banana:

I combo trick ski whenever the water is too rough for footin, or my feet are burnt out.

I use trick skis every weekend. You use the same stance footing as trick skis so it really helps with the barefooting form. I mostly use the trick skis to practice one foot wake crossings. I noticed a couple of those guys with their knees bent in and doing a little plowing. Get on those trick skis and practice gliding across the water, standing up straight with the knees "slightly" bent. Once I got my son to glide rather than plow he actually started to enjoy barefooting more. Of course he still hasn't learned at what point he is too far "forward" until he does a face plant, but he is learning.

I haven't for a long time, but if anybody out there is thinking of selling theirs, let me know. I use to have a blast on tricks.

I bet if it were studied, you would find that most barefooters play wicked air guitar.

just sayin...

We try to use ours every year. We just use it to be silly and goof off with though. We do have some serious trickers out where we ski though. Impressive to watch!
