Any of you Lac Du Flambeau area skiers know White Sand Lake?.......My dad and I keep our boat at the family cabin there......Also, how the hell do you barefoot??????? I've tried a couple times with a friend and failed miserably.....however that was before the Prostar joined the family, so maybe that will help next summer.

If its the same boat I'm thinking of, the Glastron is a cool ride.

Rockman,

Was that picture of the 10 barefooter taken at an MS walk in Illinois? I think I recognize some of the footers that are out there.

I think that the group is Jans fans or something of that nature.

Great work

Eric

mcprostar197,
I was just on White Sand Lake about 3 weeks ago. There's a barefoot picture on page 1 or 2 on this thread. We stayed at a huge place towards the southeast corner of the lake. The area where we stayed was glass in the morning and had good potential throughout the day. I say potential because the air temp that week was around 50 in the morning, and low sixties during the day. As you probably know the water was frigid. We've been going up to the Minocqua area for 33 years and this was our first time on White Sand. If the weather would have been better we would have enjoyed the lake much more. Do you have a new red 197?

Stars93, I was at our place a few weeks ago. I think I saw your boat one day pulling a barefooter, and a few other times just cruisin around. My dad and I were skiing over there in that bay because it is frequently calm. The air and the water this whole summer has been really cold, skiing and boarding was miserable that week as you almost froze when you were doing it. Yeah we have the red 197, I was in that bay a lot that week so we probobly saw each other. So, how do you barefoot???

Yeah, that was me doing a deepwater out of that spot that gets pretty shallow. We all noticed your 197, really sharp boat!!! I do okay if the water is calm and there isn't too many rollers. Didn't have too many runs this year because of the weather. I really only foot while up in the Minocqua area which is usually no more than a week or two a year. So that's my excuse for short runs. I learned before we had a boom by dropping an old wood ski. Progressed to deepwater starts, then dock starts. (We had a floating pier on White Sand which made it hard to launch off.) For me dock starts are the way to go because you don't sink and you're moving the instant you hit the water. I dread the drag of a deepwater, and would probably have problems dropping. I can cross the wakes...sometimes. And sometimes a complete run only lasts about 100 yards. And almost all the time I'm pretty happy with that because there ain't nothing like footin!!! If you're still up there, I'm jealous, even if the weather's bad.
