By the way, you need to start off the platform without a rope and finish on the platform. Hell, it so easy you won't need a swim suit because it takes no skill to surf.
I bet that in 1 weekend I or Kyle could learn those tricks , but someone who has never skied will ever come close to running a pass on a slalom course in 1 weekend

LOL!
First, it took no skills to surf, now it takes a weekend of practice? Remember it's a "drunk fat guy's sport." I don't recall seeing the comments comparing skiing the course to surfing in your post. I guess i'll have to go back and re-read them. I recall in the post saying its not a sport and takes no skill.
So, let's define a weekend; is that a few hours each day? No need to post any videos just google "James Walker surfing" on www.youtube.com. He makes it look easy enough but here is a link to one of the moves that the "World Champion" didn't quite finish. But, again he's just a "fat guy with no skills."

What if I told you I was a drunk fat guy. Would that help things.

I like my beer. So I do drink and most people think it is a lot. I also lost my six pack years ago and I don't see it ever coming back. Therefore I'm a fata$$ too.

LMFAO!

Here is to more pissing!
Here is a short video of starting without a rope. I believe this "drunk fat guy with no skills" ran the ski course in competition about 25 years ago. But, I'll have to ask him if it takes skills to surf. But, with a weekend of "practice" I'm sure you'll be jumping off the back of boat with board in hand, stuffing it under your feet right before hitting the wave and riding. I've seen that done but it wasn't the "fat drunk guy."
