    @oldjeep, where is that lake in Ft. Myers?
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Private lake near tamiani and alico. My father in law lives there in the winter. Has 2 courses on it.

    Did 13 sets at Bennetts last week. As usual it was incredible. Mid 80's and sun daily. As good of coaching as I've ever had anywhere. 3 squares a day, can't complain. Already ran deep -28 passes, falling over early and wide at 6 ball on one. Hoping this year is pretty pivotal.

    @OB Dane is a killer skier. One of the best pullouts and gates I've every seen. Extremely light on the line and efficient. Had the pleasure of seeing him ski from the boat in a practice set last fall at Bennetts.

    OB, I was at Corey's yesterday and back tomorrow morning. Awesome conditions. Let me know if you will be around.

    The ice is almost gone. I hope to ski before the end of the month.

    Only motorized sounds I'm hearing on my lake are ATV's and ice augers, calling for 1-3"s of new snow tonight, definitely a late start this year.

    @adkh2oskier wow that sucks. I'm in the same boat with @Chef23 , sometimes literally. Really hoping for first ski before 4/20.

    Im with @Chef23 and @Than_Bogan, actually down the road form them. I am hoping to get the boat out of storage soon. If you guys need a 3rd to free ski for the first run of the year let me know.
  • Keith MenardKeith Menard Posts: 603 Crazy Baller
    and I think I am down the road as well...heading up to the mountain for a last ski/board this weekend. Great winter season...but I am getting the itch!

    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    Got out for the first swerve of 2015!!! Fox River, Northern Illinois. 55 degree water, 60 degree air. Awesome!!!

    I will be pushing ice out of the way to install my dock tomorrow. Only time it can fit my schedule.

    Finally got on the water today! water 48, air 63. The season begins! We still have to get the balls in... maybe Wednesday. There was of course celebratory beer. Samuel Adams New World in the Chimay glasses that stay at the lake... a Belgian Tripel style ale.
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    Skied for the first time in over 6 months Friday at Jeff Rodgers then in a tournament yesterday. Good times and it was great to finally be back on the water!

    @Keith Menard Awesome, not far from me. Have you skied on Wallum Lake?
  • Chef23Chef23 Posts: 5,989 Mega Baller
    @slvrbulit and @Keith Menard you guys should come out to one of the tournaments in Oakham. They are June 20-21 and July 11 & 12. Slalom is usually on Sunday and Trick & Jump is on Saturday. There is a great group of people and a way to meet other skiers. There is a wide range of skier ability and a fun division that will guarantee a couple of passes.

    I ski Wallum a lot actually. My boat is kind of hard to miss :) The people on the lake are pretty divided between THAT THING IS AWESOME...and I WANT TO THROW ROCKS AT YOU!.

    I am also part of a ski club in Webster. Wallum doesn't have a course, and Websters looks more like an obstacle course than a straight line :(

    I joined INT last season and did my first tourny...I suck :)
