It's legal here to ski until an hour after sunset. Don't know about slalom, but hydrofoiling under the lights is a blast.

The water is definitely at its glassiest right before and after dark. I'd say its easier to see a skier/boarder from the driver's seat with the lights OFF. And they can be pretty blinding to the skier as well. About the only thing mine have been useful for is cleaning the boat after trailering.

We did the same with our former '02 X10. Hated the forward facing lights when doing it. They reflected of the bow and destroyed my natural night vision. We ended up throwing towels over them (forward facing lights). They were good for docking, but I'd prefer the forward facing lights be on a separate switch from the rear facing lights.

I just have the forward facing ones. I can't see anything when they are on due to them shining down into the boat. I put my bimini up and they rock!
