Generally the first time you ride a new ski you should fresh and rested.
When I took the Connelly Prophecy out today for it's first ride today, I was hung over, hungry, tired and black & blue from slipping and falling on a slippery swim step. (knee is now very swollen)
With that in mind I can tell you two things. I ran 3 @ 38 off the dock and this ski does not feel anything like my first generation Prophecy.
24 or so rides to go…
