STOP laughing at my 26 mph through the buoys...that ain't nice...

It DID HAPPEN!!! And I knew you where going to say that. We had moved to Lake 4 and weren't videoing during this set!!! I've got a 3 day Cutting Horse show this coming weekend in WV. But next week, it's on like DONKEY KONG! I'm going to the lake midweek, hiring a driver and we're getting a video ...IN THE BUOYS!!!!

get the ski doc... http://www.theskidoc.com/

nice to see an addiction growing - I remember you did mention that Freeride ski... amazing what a little coaching can do right? the Video drills by Gordon Rathbun on youtube are great and critique by the riverrat is awesome...

My comment was laughing at the guys that were bellyaching about the "huge wake" at 26 for the 197, not making fun of anyones ability

sorry for the confusion! lol

Finally got a short video....

Well....it was windy, cold and the water was choppy as could be at Lake Tillery, NC this past weekend...but I managed to get a short video to show you how my progress is coming along. First time to get back in the water since ski school. I can tell a big difference in my skiing since the earlier video's in July. I can't wait to go back next week and try again. I'm feeling much more confident and I think I look much safer at the wake crossing-thank you Coble Ski School. Going to try more edge through the wake next time.

Boat speed 29 - 30 mph (was 26 -28 mph before camp). This is actually a decent wake for my 2012 Maristar 215. Could be much worse-LOL!

My first passes were at 26mph. And the older Malibu's, early 90's MC's have the best wakes at slow speed, long line length. I did a summer behind a 2004 ProStar and my bad offside wake crossing caused me a lot of pain. Full tank of gas doesn't help. All excuses, if the form is good, it's all good!

Wow!Way better wake crossing position! I also notice that your ski don t hunt anymore as a result of better form!
Good improvement!
Congrats!
