Summertime here!

Yesterday we had 11 miles of lake to ourselves. 11 miles of glass - just like this all day. Mum still skis but drove the boat for the first time in probably 15 years. My sister, her partner and Kate (2) all
had a run. My children Reiley (8) and Zarah (7) are in this photo. Zarah crossed the wake and got back on doubles for the first time ever in this run. Dad and I had a ski together too. I've been barefooting and slaloming as much as I could handle for 3 days solid.

    @GregHind‌ Good on you! Looks awesome. Not helping us much here though. Everyone is getting kind of batty!!!

    My sister does them all the time and loves the course (listen to her two year old in the background. Kate LOVES the lake and has been kneeboarding on a short rope on the boom by herself since she was 1)

    Since it is off season for most of you, here is a video of us trying to pull 122 skiers in 2009. It didn't work

    108 skiers managed to ski in surf in 2012

    Slowest ever deep water start on skis. 100 seconds of slow but constant acceleration to make enough speed

    @GregHind‌ Enjoy! Where is that? I hope to visit the down under one day.

    Eventually we figured it all out. We even had to change props, pulling the 100 tonne cat out of the water to do so. This time the holeshot amazed us. It hit the rev limiter in seconds. 145 skiers behind one boat
