Well...for my 50th birthday last week I got my 1st Slalom Ski. I started wakeboarding last year and I absolutely love it. The problem is I try to do too much for my age and have ended up with some nasty falls jumping the wake. So, we thought I'd be safer on a ski instead.
I usually wakeboard real early in the mornings...when I jumped in the water to put my board on...my family opened up a seat and tossed the beautiful HO Ski into the water. I was SO reluctant to give it a try...scared I couldn't pull up with both feet in the bindings...but guess what....our Mastercraft pulled me out so smooth...I LOVED IT as well. Now I'm chomping at the bit to get onto the slalom course. But first....I guess I better learn the basics. I felt real comfortable by the 3rd day and working both sides of the boat. Just wondering if anybody has any good links for me to view about the basics of body position and learning to make turns correctly.
The clock is ticking and I don't waste valuable time....LOL
