She tried...

I told her the Wakeye app was all setup and all she had to do was put it on the pylon...



Too funny not to share, we both had a good laugh.

    In the grand scheme of things who cares about the Wakeye? The boat path looks decent enough :)

    I agree with @lakeaustinskier good driving. @tap Are you sure you didn't do that on purpose to check on her driving?
  • taptap Posts: 93 Crazy Baller
    Ha. Yea she's pretty decent. Probably the only reason she let me post the video.

    @tap did she mount the camera facing forward to hide the secret ducts on your ski?

    @Horton I know nothing of what you speak... confirm nor deny.

    @Mark_Matis that's good stuff. I apparently only got around 1 ball, so regardless of line length it was pretty weak.

    That is awesome. You are very brave to post that. My driver would not be pleasant to live with.

    incredible driving skills indeed, especially considering the unseen passenger; you're quite fortunate! @tap

    You can tell drivers who learned after the advent of cruise control. "Hands and 10:00 and 2:00" just like in drivers ed!

    Awesome video....

    That's funny. A wife that is willing to drive is priceless. But why quit skiing if you mess up at one ball? We tell the kids at our lake that if they mess up one to keep going and get some practice at that speed and line length. Consequently, we have to lead by example.

    My wife loves the drive, over the last summer I've had her driving me in the course for the first time. She's getting really good and gets pretty upset if she gives me a bad run, she's never done anything as awesome as that video however...

    Great video, @tap ! After analyzing it, I can see that you need to stay a little more connected when edge-changing into your off-side. Add some back-arm pressure, and don't forget to counter rotate into your on-side. This will all help you get the right smear at the finish of the turn so that you can finish strong & centered and load earlier at the white water. LOL!
