Videos..Which One?

So I have been looking about and was looking at getting a video.
As I bring it to the expert panel which one Mapple's or Ross'?

Looks like a personal choice and the price is the same. Just looking for a review from a non-biased source.

I haven't seen the one from Ross.
The Mapple one has lots of good tips, but most likley will put you to sleep in less than 15 minutes.

Get the Ross video. If anything, it's got some pretty good ski footage. The instruction is geared towards guys who ski a lot better than I do, and it is the "new school" approach, but I've watched it countless times just for the ski footage. The Mapple video is alright, but they spend too much time talking about it.

Over both of those videos, I'd get the Secret Spot.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Checked out "Waterskiiers GUide to Excellence" VHS tape from the library and it is really good. Little old and funny to see people cutting up the course with wooden Dick Pope and those little white bindings!

the mapple video isalthough informative is very boring and does not have much skiing footage. the secret spot is entertaining but will not help you with your skiing.

Thumbs up

I liked the Ross video. It took me a few times to understand everything he was talking about, but it really helped. Also it has a bit of humor in it which was good. "Stay low long"!!!
