Vic first full pass

Made my first full course pass June 15th,2019 on Connelly outlaw ski at 15 off and 26 mph. I was skiing behind my sons centurion falcon boat. I have been skiing with my sons for 4 years and slowly getting better. Thanks to their patients and coaching. I skied this winter with Erickski and he helped by coaching as will. Love skiing and attempting to improve

    Great skiing! it's pretty impressive to see a guy in his 70's getting past a mutitude of previous health issues including 2 knee replacements, not only skiing, but improving and running buoys! @vic proves it's not just a young persons sport. Anybody at any age can enjoy it. See you on the water tomorrow.

    For anyone to run the course for the first time is a huge thrill for them, and I think almost all of us out here on the internet get a thrill out of it as well -- it's just so exciting for someone to bring things together and get it done!!

    Doing so in your 70s is even MORE amazing!!! HUGE congrats, Vic!

    @Than_Bogan It's even better when you've met the person, skied with them and gotten to know them. @vic is an awesome person and it's so cool to see his progress.

    He skied with me during the winter. While I was ostensibly the coach, I learned so much from his attitude and experience. Good times!
