Anyone ever tired to ski on anything like this? This thing gives the saying “a quick ski or fast ski” a whole new meaning! After several attempts to get up on this thing, I finally figured out your supposed to drop a ski. Then comes the fun part. Staying up……….. :D

12 pack for anyone who can start off on this ski. :friday:

would a dock start count? if so, bring 'er up to Columbia and I'll give it a try. I like Michelob light or Rolling rock.

Are you going to the tournament on Sunday in St. George?

I had one of those years ago - over a weekend tried to get up on it numerous times. Never successfuly - ended up returning it....

Hmmm, deep water started on a wooden paddle that was a bit smaller than that..... but it took the whole summer. bring it on! looks like fun.

I remember skiing on on of those way back when.
If I remember right I was able to do a dock start. Without a fin, it was tricky.

I also won a $20 bet once and got up on shoe skis.

Maybe it did have a fin aftter all.
There are 2 on ebay right now, I am tempted.....

we have one in the cabinet. It hasn't been used for years.
