Air Chair Event

Hope to see ALOT of MasterCrafts lining the Gardens that weekend.
Geno Yauchler is heading up and organizing this event. He is considered the Best Hydrofoil Rider in the world today, he is also a MasterCraft Team Skier as the new MasterCraft website displays.
You can check him out online at www.foiltime.com

The format will be a little different in this event. WakeBoarding will
also be feartured.

Hope to see many MasterCraft Owners out there !!

You go over the jump on skis that only have front toe pieces. You kick out and just fly. It makes for great crashes when guys add flips and other acts to it. Sometimes called bailout or peddle. Wow have I taken some major hits doing these in the past!

Our ski show team does them often. I know I'll never do them. I don't know how they recruit someone to do it, or why they keep doing them. Someone's gonna get really hurt, maybe paralyzed. One time the guy rotated a bit, landed head first, but with his legs pointed up in the air. Not sure how he avoided breaking his back or neck. Not pretty. One of those things like the "world's wildest crashes" shows on Spike TV, where I know I shouldn't watch it, but I just can't help myself!

Not that big of a deal

It is not that big of a deal if you don't dive. No one dives
Only jumps...

Sounds like quality entertainment to me. I've never seen hardcore foiling in person either - that alone might be worth the drive.
