Hello to all of you! Name is Todd, I'm 48 yrs young..Weight is 185-190, 5'9''...got up on one ski when I was around 14 if I can remember lol. Now I just started back on one ski a little bit behind my brother in laws boat 2 yrs ago, and just last year we went to a lake that had a slalom course. None of us ever tried a course, so being me, I tried it first..all I can say is now I am totally addicted!
So far I have only been able to make it thru the inside beginners balls. I really love the sport! very challenging and so fun! So much, I went and got my own boat and plan on doing this till I die!!
Anyhow, can I ask what kind of ski all of you started your journey on? or recommend a good ski to start with? I don't want to buy too much of of a ski..I'm looking for a forgiving ski that will help me learn slalom..based on my stats above..I ski around 28mph right now..(Maybe I should be going slower to start with..I am not sure?) Just looking for one that will help me with my not so great technique, and maybe grow into..So please, can i hear all of your recommendations or comments?! OR point me to a previous discussion that goes over this?
Thanks so much!
