My folks recently retired down to Florida and bought a boat so I've been doing a bunch of skiing down there on the slalom ski from a set of combos (67 or 68"). Issue is that their boat is fairly large (27' sea-ray, 350 hp) so my hole shots have been fairly long (5-10 seconds) and I get pretty tired early on. I am looking for a slalom ski that will be a bit easier to get up on, but still fun to coast in and out of the wake.
A few other details:
1) Ski conditions - intracoastal south Florida - it's quite calm on mornings but obviously nowhere near as glassy as a lake
2) My size - 6'2", 215 pounds (I was thinking I probably need a larger ski - 71")
3) Ski speed - ~30 mph
I was thinking about buying the HO Carbon Evo 71" () , but am open to whatever you all think best.
Also, any tips/ tricks on skiing behind a big boat? Rope length, etc.?
