Looking tuff!!! We plan on breaking the seal March 31 at Tablerock. I see that your rope has some slack in it. Start your turn while you still have speed from the cut across. Visualize pushing your hips through while you are turning (you are breaking at the waist) and look towards the point where you will start the next turn - Like spotting your next bouy. This will help you finish your turns stronger. Something that helped me - " always keep your ski on an edge"

We will have to pay for these record temps sometime though. My bet is sooner rather than later.
Your payback will be in a form of Weeds, Mosquitos, Deerflies and Horseflies

Our ice went out on sunday. Hope to ski this weekend.

Fwiw, you should lose the first 15 feet of your rope.

Here's two from last night of my friend slaloming and me barefooting. This was on Nagawicka Lake, near Hartland, WI. We got out on the 15th for our first run with air temp of 79 and water temp of 44 on the surface. Last night the air temp was 72 and the water temp on the surface was reading 58. It was actually surprisingly comfortable, but we all still wore drysuits. It's going to be a great (and early) summer if the temps stay warm enough to keep the water temp up.

This has been incredible weather for Wisconsin. I've been chomping at the bit to get out. I put the boat in on Sunday, but father-in-law has been working so I haven't had a ski buddy. We are planning on skiing tomorrow morning.

Finnsdad...I'll definitely have my dry suit on! I would like to have more kids...

Flies and bees already out. Hopefully it'll stay warm for a bit to hatch them all, then three or four days below freezing to kill them off.
