You are a lucky and brave man.

Got a question about full wet suits. What water temp is tolerable/safe in one? My wife said the ice will be him by the time I get home next week.

Made it out last night for the first time. Was originally just testing the boat, but the entire lake was glass, so I decided to ski. Had a decent run for the first one of the year. My knee didn't cross my mind (was too worried about the cold water), and I felt like I did a better job of bending my knees. I can't confirm this though, since my coach (wife) wasn't with us. Similar to Mike, its more comfortable turning/crossing the wake right-to-left than left-to-right. I forgot to pay attention to my shoulders .... oops. All in all it felt great to be out on the water on a beautiful evening. I guess I need to invest in a Go-Pro so I can see the many many things I am doing wrong.

If you try by running gates followed by running it 1,2,3...... And you mess up then you stop skiing and the entire rhythm and timing does not get recognized. We have a mini course inside of our standard course. So my students run the mini and start adding standard buoys from the finish to the start.



Thanks for posting this. My wife used to run full passes, but after a broken ankle several years ago she hasn't run a full pass since....gate, 1, 2, miss 3, or gate, 1, 2, 3, and miss 4...either way the rest of the pass is wasted. I'm going to try this with her this year.

For some reason that link does not work for me. I end up going to my uploads section.
