Enjoy! A cold front moved in on this side of the coast; no boarding for me this weekend. Oh well, guess I go scuba diving.

Okay it was a decent day in Henry, Il - water 54 degrees and air 68 degrees - got chased off by unexpected thunder and lightning.... 2013 goals... lead with hips and counter rotate shoulders at turn - pull thru wake.. Still lead turns with with shoulders - causing me to get out of stacked position.

Still a great day...don't get to practice enough... Friend Joe is the flyer... was a blast!

Sat was quite possibly my last time out until Polar Day. Not too bad really. We've actually had a warming trend until today. Conditions yesterday at the kinda nasty Trinity River site; 71 air, 62 water with 35 MPH winds (which explains the river choice). Nothing close to the picturesque day we had last Wed at Marine Creek when the water was 55. Probably gonna shut down to get some work done on my trailer. Which is not to say I wouldn't ski behind someone else's boat.
First 2 pics are me at -19. Good examples of bad form. Got one of a past MSC Pres.

Cool helmet Mike and the fall leaves are a nice touch.

Thanks...it has ear protection for those less than elegant spills....I am sure I'll need next season..when I work on getting my form better... This is only season 2 of serious slalom....my bad form trumps yours...lol. Only took me 4-5 outings to figure out I wasn't counter rotating shoulders which caused me to get center of balance out over ski which pull me a bit over...got a rock hard core though ... That's what I get for hangin' with wake boarders...
