There's one right over there by Conroe. I just can't remember the name of it at the moment.

Thousand Oaks, maybe. But I think there's another one.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

thanks ill try these!

Also, for the sake of not starting a bunch of unneeded threads, my wife bought a new Connelly concept ski for me for my b-day, it has the adjustable foil fins. what angle should I start with? and should I move the fin all the way to the back, middle, or front? I know this is a vague question but im just looking for a starting point.

btw I am 5'11 193 lbs

That's a great ski. Connelly web site will give you factory numbers on your fin and foil and how to measure them. They should also give you measurements on boot placement.

If the site doesn't mention anything, try 7 degrees upside-down.

I suggest getting rid of that brick and getting on a used A1, A2 or a new A3.

The Concept is just average - $600, I think I had one laying around I would have sent you for free lol

Look for a gently used HO A1 A2 or A3.

Wow!
What kind of other $600 stuff you got laying around you want to give away?

Anyway, I skied on it this weekend and I personally loved it. I tried 7 degrees upside down and it felt like it wanted to run a little deep in the back (for me) I backed it down to 5 and that's where I kept it for the rest of the day, I going to loosen the bindings a little before this weekend, my feet were asleep when I got back in the boat. LOL
