Yesterday entered my 1st tournament yesterday. Did the Mother's Day Trick and Slalom at Paradise Ski Club in Mulberry Fl. Great little event, good group of people, great site. Extra benefit of watching some open level tricking with Chantal Singer, Erica Lang, and Franck Desboyaux entered. Chantal even sat in as boat judge for my 1st run.
#1 goal going in was to get through the gates on 1st pass, and complete that pass. As my practice best is a full run at 30 mph, and just a couple at 30.4. I did an opening pass at 26.7. Got through 26.7 and 28.6 easily, and got on up to my best at 3 and 3.5 at 30.4. I now have my 1st official PB of 3.5 at 15 off, 30.4 mph.
Thanks to Jodi Fisher for all of his frustrations training me over the last year, and Stan and the rest of the crew at Paradise Ski Club for a great event.
Back to work, keep inching the speed up, and more tournaments....
