Nice ski pics Bert, but only relevant at the apex of offside turns - which none of your photos show. Leg in the water is pretty common. Hurts for the first couple weeks each season and then toughens...

Nice find. The bindings look like in great shape (produced by Wileys) too. This should work MUCH better than the Connelly Pilot for you.

We were on Bryant Lake in Eden Prairie on Saturday. Early season PR by a couple of week for us.
