Today was the first time I ever got a chance to try the slalom course. The conditions were terrible, we swam for 20 minutes to set it up, and all of my academics and studying about body position went out the window...but I have never had so much fun skiing!
I was able to make 1 buoy at 30mph @ 15 off, and ran a full pass of novice buoys at 30 @ 15 off twice in a row...and made the start and end gates for each pass. Not bad for a first time?
I love how it sets a "barometer" for your skiing and gives you something to strive for one ball at a time.
I'll stop waxing poetic now, just wanted to share my excitement for my newfound love
