    Ok, so we aren't getting on ESPN, but there are so many other channels. Outside television is a pretty cool one.

    That's right. In fact you can buy a 22-minute show on Outside for roughly $10,000. That doesn't include production costs.

    The difference is that before we didn't have to pay, or were possibly even paid to be on TV, now we have to pay to play. The media landscape has changed on us.

    To be honest, I usually don't really "get" FlowPoint TV.*

    But this episode really drew me in and 9 minutes seemed to pass in a heartbeat. It's such a powerful reminder that with a skilled edit, competitive waterski events could be crazy-exciting and very compelling TV broadcasts.

    *This may be a good thing. Old Geeks probably aren't really the target audience. I love Marcus Brown, and he'd for sure be on my short list of guys to "get a beer" with (except for the part where I don't actually drink beer, but you get the idea). I'm just too old-at-heart for his video style most of the time, though.

    @Than_Bogan go back to season 1 and repeat. He explains it and being old has nothing to do with it.

    @MarcusBrown, That is really great stuff and another example of the waterskiing lifestyle from the competition standpoint! Digging the FlowPoint!

    WOW! Don't know about anyone else but I think they would echo this sentiment - Makes me want to show all my work buddies this video before a meeting and say "this is what I attempt to do!"

    It also makes me want to invite kids over so they too can enjoy the magic of the LAKELIFE/WaterskiLife with my kids.

    Well done Marcus!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Upon watching it a second time I noticed that the scores on the screen in length not in "off ". That's a great start to get the general public to understand it easier

    I really like all them. Reminds me of all the great times with the family at the lake, hanging out all day. This one I have to say left me a bit depressed, but still awesome.

    Awesome job Marcus!

    @MarcusBrown! great work. I am challenged this year to make many tournaments. Probably only get to ski 2 or three and the first is a few weeks from now, but this sure made me miss the competition and the camaraderie found at tournaments. Thanks for your hard work to showcase these great sports!

    Does anyone know the details of the back injury Marcus references in the video? I've heard bits but never really heard what the injury was?

    @matthewbrown i heard his brother kicked his ass so bad at ping-pong that he was ashamed ever show his face the lake again so he had to quit skiing.

    Ping pong is the rock, paper, scissors at our house, capable of ending any squabble or determining who has ownership of the next honey-do. Count me in on the Big Dawg Pong World Tour. Thx for the info on Marcus @Matthewbrown; was always curious; I trained with Jenny for a few years and never wanted to broach the subject
