I was hoping to get a recommendation on a Slalom Ski. Right now I have have an old pair of ski's that I drop one when I want to slalom. I am looking to get a dedicated Slalom ski for use, but deep water starts are tough on my knees and back. We live on a River so dropping a ski works but it a hassle to find the ski that has floated down river. I am looking for something with easier deep starts that other new riders can enjoy and learn on without loosing too much fun with more experienced riders.
I like what the HO Hovercraft is marketed as, but I haven't seen much in terms of reviews on them.
I am 6'2" ~190# in pretty ok shape, but not great. I am much more interested in sub 30mph cruising and open water carving than serious slalom.
Is the Hovercraft the right choice or am i overlooking another ski?
