Clearly a better chef than skier.

JK Ric, looks like y'all had a great time.

I think I want another shot at that skyski. I can't believe your daughter can do it and I couldn't.

Learning to get up on the Sky Ski can be a real challenge, no question. On the upside, once that part of the process is acquired, things can move along pretty rapidly.

You may remember AirJunky...he used to post here a lot before he "upgraded" (his words, not mine) to a Malibu. He's quite accomplished and recently posted his concept for "training wheels" for the Sky Ski. It allows the rider to get up on the ski at about 5-6 mph, he says, so they can learn the technique for getting up, and for "taxiing" behind the boat without inadvertently and prematurely getting on the foil, which usually results in a crash. Having taught a lot of people to ride the thing, I think this is a very clever concept. Here are the pics he's posted on another site.

I just talked to Mark V. He says he may be able to come down either this coming weekend or the following. Are you available either weekend to come up?
