I love your video's they are hilarious.

I like how the driver and cameraman make the credits. That cracks me up.

I'm always down to drive Mike's boat. Thing handles like a Ferrari.

AAAHHH!! You guys are killing me!! Winter now in Melbourne Australia and I can't ski!!!
But I can check out the forum to keep me going.

Sotipnomon, check my avatar photo for spray....

Ran 2@-35 (34mph)

I met phntmski out to do course maintenance. We got it all back in. He skied and I drove. The water was nice so I borrowed all of his gear as I did not plan on skiing.

Pass 1) 6@-28
2) 6@-32
3) 2@ -35
4) skied to the dock. I was tired and I wanted my ski. I'm used to my ski and wanted my large bindings vs his mediums. They were too tight.

Wednesday was my first time out since late October. No excuse for someone living in FL, but it's north Florida, the weather has been crappy, they drew down the lake during the winter, I blew out my hammy in the gym last month, and then went on a European vacation.

Anyways, I skied 2 sets, got a taste of the green rope (32 off @ 34), and my muscles are aching in all the right places.
Can't wait to get back out there this weekend. This summer's goals are to ski 32 off consistently and hope I can manage a full 35 off pass or two.

So far my best is a full -28 pass. Did that at spring fling. Never made a -28 in May before! This past weekend was a big regression. Only made about 1/2 my -22s and 3 @ -28 my 1 and only attempt. Back to basics. Back to basics.

Started skiing late april in a drysuit,a week later in boardshorts and 5 weeks later back in a wetsuit!Crazy weather for this season start.
Course is in for the last 2 weeks but only managed a 6 sets since installed.
Ran some clean 28 tonite but didn t hook up 32.Fighting some lower back pain and don t want to overski that early in.
Goal is still the same since August 2007,to run 35 and get a taste of 38!
Gotta hurry up.My hairs are turning white more and more!!!
Keep skiing!!!
