You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...

Is that the helmet you wear every day, or a special one for skiing?

As said by others, ditch all the weight you can. I'd shoot for 28-30 mph not knowing your weight or strength. With that many people in the boat, even on edge I would think you are not being nice to your knees. I am still a beginner but won't ski with more than three in the boat. Not fun.

A trim tab may help the boat / wake. However, if you get serious and want to "attack the wake with a vengeance" as we used to say, a direct drive (not 209) would be great, as I mentioned in your other thread.

Take up whoever offered you a pull on the direct drive. Always.

I've hurt myself a lot worse / rung my bell more often on a wakeboard than a ski. Although w2w 180's is about as far as I went. Nothing like a face plant at 21mph to blind you for 60 seconds....

That's why everyone should where a helmet on water sports... The injury thread freaks me out...
