    Congrats! This site has definitely influenced my last 2 ski purchases. Both turned out awesome thanks to the quality info posted here. Horton rocks.!

    Excellent work! Do the valleys in pageviews correspond to summers? Are we skiing less and day dreaming more during winters?

    12 years, holy c**p time flies! Seems like I was on the Coyote Bros site yesterday.

    @dw it's actually longer than you think. It has been 12 years since this site was rebuilt in its current form. The Slalom Tweakers dates back to 2003-ish.

    @Horton it says on my profile I joined May 2007? What did I join since that's more than 12 years ago? Also, have to admit I’ve been away from skiing since 2012 and came back last year, both to skiing an BoS. Happy to be back 😀

    This site has become arguably the most valuable resource for news and information pertaining to waterskiing. I'm glad it exists. Thanks for putting it together and keeping it going. I'm sure there have been some days....

    Congrats John - certainly see the cycle of visitors with the graph. Now the question is, how do we fill in the trough to make it more of a flat curve moving forward. That would be pretty sweet.

    @Stefan the site was extremely small until I built the site that is BallOfSpray as it is now. It is from that point that I count the years. If you want to count from the real genesis of the community it's closer to 18 years.

    @Skoot1123 it is a summer focused sport. The peaks and valleys in the page view graph don't bother me at all. They continued growth of the community is the thing that I most proud of.

    @Skoot1123 we can all move to Australia during the winter. That will do the trick!

    @Horton first off great job on the site! I blame @Rednucleus for introducing me to BOS. Before i knew anything about it my life was so empty and I had more free time on my hands😂😉 now I check it regularly and keep the ballers informed of the adventures of the Wednesday night crew (Doug, Ken, @Rednucleus and myself) thanks for a fun and useful site.
    Here is wishing BOS a Happy Birthday and many more to come!

    12 years Wow! Happy Birthday BOS. Came across my Carbon Fin I bought many years ago the other day.
