I recreational ski in salt water in-shore conditions ... so rarely flat water, and just fun, no running of a course.
I'm 6', 240Lb and now late 50's in age
I have been using one half of a pair of HO WideTrax combos ....
This is quoted as being ~440 sq in in area, and I have then fitted with Mid-wrap bindings.
Ski behind a 201 runabout with 220hp i/o .... fitted with correctly pitched High Five prop.
Looking for a replacement monoski ..
The first obvious choice would be Connelly Big Daddy, what are other contenders that will allow fun skiing at lower speeds ... a friend suggested HO Magnum 71" (or maybe even its replacement the Freeride 71")
