Erk,

You have come a long way since you got the new MC. See, it was the boat that you were using all the time...not the skier!

Glad to see you are on the way up the ladder!

Thanks again...it was awesome footing into downtown St. Charles with only the bow lights on and then seeing all the shops and bars lit up.

Next time a camera shot will defintiely be a must...maybe I'll take it off the boom!

more footin

Another great place for impressive barefooting videos:
www.barefootcentral.com

Here's one from last Sat, 30 minutes of nice water in between the toobers. Sometimes we actually get a break.

Anyone got hints on back deeps? Are they as brutal as they look? Is that the recommended way to begin backwards footn, or can you learn by front-to-back also?

It is DEFINATELY recommended you learn backwards before ever attempting back to fronts etc. The easiest way to learn I have read is with Barefooting Shoes. Once you learn that way, barefeet should be a cinch. The hardest part is you are dragging in the water a little longer than a front deep.

P.S. I don't speak from experience on this subject, only from what I have read and watched and heard from others.
Here's a little tip

Gotcha, and good tip on the barefooting shoes - I have seen them before but didn't think of that option. I have a couple of friends just learning now so we could all benefit from 'em.

Co worker and I were talking. He was out one day trying to run 32's and gave up due to lousy conditions, when SmartA$$ barefooter starts up runs past them and they see what they thought was a wicked fall, but he gets back up and does it again, and again. Next pass through they watched closer and and he's doing front flips. They opened the beers, LOL

Nice shot Rod. I think that's the 1st shot I've ever seen of you skiing.
