I too am 5-0 and got up on a single ski for the first time in my life this weekend. After many previous failures, I was really thinking I wasn't going to sort out the start and have to be happy with the wakeboard. At any rate, my boat and ski mentor, Bill, got me up on my third try--he was able to pick apart the mechanics of what I was doing wrong and set me right. Can't wait to get back out and start working it! There is no substitute for lessons from someone that really knows what's going on.

You sure have the right boat for it.

If you're looking for a ski buddy, send a PM to D3skier...he's in the Charotte area.

We usually go to Mtn Island Lake--seems like the best water for our little boat. Love the 197, and now will be able to use it as intended!
