It felt like I just did a front flip. Didn't really feel much, fortunately. It's weird being on one ski again that's actually meant to do the course. Hopefully it won't take long to get used to it...

Stacking?

Thanks, it just needs a nasty cam now.

All the guages worked, no vibration, and I like the wake (or lack thereof). Although, the key sticks when starting it, and it doesn't feel like there's a lot of power at high RPM. We'll probably take a look at the carb when we get a chance. My mom wanted to go with tonight, but winds are blowing 15-30 mph.

Ahh, yes, I definitely had too much weight forward. (not on par with all the slalom terminology yet). Yeah, I only got a few minutes in. I have to get my strength and endurance back since I was sick over a month ago with a weird virus and lost a good amount of weight/muscle and I'm not 100% yet. Right now I'm sitting at 138.

Hey mxhideout, post a pic of your govideo helmet cam! Those are cool videos you posted, fun to watch, I need to get me one of those! I wanted to see what you were using.

Looks to me like the boat is running fine. Nice lake, wherever you are.

Thanks, they're pretty cheap nowadays and work great. I have the first gopro hd hero. You just wanted a pic of it mounted on the helmet? I only have a mount on my snow ski helmet right now. Need to get some more curved sticky pads.

I'd attach a lanyard to your camera before you hit the water... and it pulls the sticky pad off.

Yeah I know. That was the last time I'm using that helmet for any water sport. I got another helmet and will get some more pads, along with a lanyard. I've heard of quite a few people losing their cameras to the bottom of lakes.

Pick up one of the floatation backs for the housing. Ours will float even when attached to the head strap.
