    I only see one Russian competitor. Will he be allowed to compete?

    Couple of local Aussie juniors have made the Open's - keep an eye on them - they will be future names in the sport. Many local to the lakes near me - so good too see them coming through. Moomba is so good - amazing venue with the city and the crowds - and the tricky conditions make for some fascinating skiing - real gritty stuff

    I’d love to see Howley do great/win since he couldn’t make it to Worlds to defend his title because of some distant or somewhere.

    Only 5 US skiers. Sad.

    @ETskier it all come down to dollars and cents. By the time the US athletes pay for air fare hotel entry fee food rental car they only bring home a small amount of money. I’m betting 3 grand or so. And that is if you win

    Moomba has very good prize money this year 200k AUD ( 150k USD ) , this includes wakeboard however each event in tournament skiing has around 17k USD . Moomba is paying an even amount across all slalom , trick ,jump and night jump also even money between men and women .
    Because of this Mens slalom has less money than most events on the pro tour so yes some slalom skiers stateside once they see Nate , Tgas and Freddy entered probably feel it’s not cost effective to make the trip . For jumper who is competing for night jump money as well or a strong overall skier like Joel Poland this could be a very lucrative event .
    Moomba is more than a waterski tournament, it is about the “event” and show casing our sport to the pubic our sport desperately needs it to continue . So I congratulate the skiers that are making the effort to be there .
