You know water skiing is a problem in your life when....
you have a panful orthopedic issue but ignore it because it does not hurt when you ski.

    @ToddL No. I would say that running this website means that I'm the luckiest person you know.

    My right shoulder has a partial tear of the rotator cuff. But it doesn’t hurt when I ski, so I kind of ignore it. I can barely throw a ball some days, but I can ski. So, no problem, right?

    Similar to the other thread...my ear doctor wanted me to have surgery and I was like...umm no, it's waterski season. When he suggested later, I told him that was Snowboard season though :)

    You come to this site to justify your ‘ski-centric’ actions, the ones your non skiing friends think a screw is loose in the cranium.

    @Horton I’ve also been nursing a sprained wrist for 2 months and have found that putting it in traction (tension pulling wrist away from arm) helps… was also confirmed by the doctor.

    Similar to you if my wrist gets hit in the wrong direction it hurts like no ones business!

    When you hang onto "rope on the water" slack one-handed after missing the grab at the late as hell 6 ball at 38off...cuz you...need...to...run...that...pass. No idea why I still have a rotator cuff.

    When you regret building your home office with a direct view of the course from your desk as it’s now become the mother of all distractions. Ok not really regretting it but dang it’s hard to focus on work sometimes.

    ...your friend shows you a video of her 4-month old rolling over for the first time and you think "she's almost ready to ski!"

    @Horton, I thought we talked about your shoulder back in September of 2020? When you were looking to get a Goode Back Brace. So you didn't get surgery to fix your shoulder?

    When you are camping and skiing and you turn the wrong way in the boat while setting the anchor upon arrival on your knee with a complete ACL tear and only 30% miniscus remaining pops and instant pain. Lots of swelling, you ice and baby it for a week and then drive to the valley and get some ski lessons. Then you get evacuated from camping at Lake Almanor due to the Dixie fire a month a go. Get home and clean the ash from the boat. Lots of heavy smoke daily. Get evacuated from your home related to the same fire three weeks later.

    Move boat farther away for safety from the fire. You spend time in the gym getting in better shape to ski and practice new technique. But something odd happens in the gym to your only good knee the left one. But you think it will be alright and ice it. Hopping for a clearer day in the morning and no wind to get a ski in and you wake up to the clearest day you have seen in over a month without wind and the new left knee problem feels OK getting out of bed.

    Then your wife says are you OK to ski today. I reply yes I will be fine. Then ten minutes later your wife says we should not go skiing and she is not going to pull me as she will not be responsible for me not being able to walk. She has been through the brain surgery and balance issues I have and is still here. I replied I will have our son drive. You can guess how that went. I turn 57 tomorrow, having old parts that you have abused your whole life sucks, but I would not have done it any other way. We will see how the weather is and how I feel tomorrow. I think I will be skiing.

    When .......you’ve spent your newer Mastercraft upgrade money on three current model dirt bikes and have only skied a handful of long weekends this season. Got bit badly by the off - road bug. Now that’s a skiing problem right there. Hoping to get bit by the ski bug tomorrow.
