It's cool you got out already. My inlaws live in IL and they said the flooding is bad down there.

I set 2 goals on Jan 20 of this year. The second is contingent on the 1st.

1. Drop a minimum of 30lbs by June 1st by counting calories an doing Cross Fitness 5 days a week. I have 5 lbs left to go and a month to get it done.

2. Learn how to ski a slalom course

Looking forward to summer

Mike add a goal #4 and keep it at that since it will tie with goal #2


You're left foot forward and can pull reasonably aggressive from 1,3,5 (left turn, on side turn) then cross the wake and get on the left flat getting ready for your 2,4,6 (right turn, off side turn) and you get real flat.

Goal 4

Turn the ski symmetrically even on both sides. Doing this will go hand in hand with being aggressive.



Don't set too many goals. But doing goal 4 then 2 will start to autatically happen.

Good thread. I hope to progress a lot this year.

1) Lose 10 pounds by Memorial Weekend
2) Consistently get up on a slalom ski and learn the basics
3) Go W2W on the wakeboard
4) Surf with no rope

We'll see how it goes!

I'll try. My gopro is now at the bottom of a lake, so hopefully my buddy brings his on board. He was smart enough to buy the floaty. It was out of stock when I looked. :(

So this will be our second season doing watersports. The video attached below is early in the season, maybe 4-5 trips to the lake, after stepping into bindings for the first time. But it's the only video I have so it'll have to do. By the end of last year's season, I had quite a bit more control, could rotate the board (180?) to ride goofy, and got enough air to put a shoebox under.

Goals for this year:
1. Master the wake our new X55 will put out. Might be a bit scary at first (the video is from an I/O)
2. Get Air - go W2W
3. work on some handle passing skills
4. Learn to wakesurf

We (wife, son, and I) plan to get some private lessons to help along the way.

I'm going to run 28 off this year.... I got 3 @ 28 last season.

Two goals this year:

1) Do one invert on a wakeboard.
2) Survive #1 relatively uninjured.
