    I loved the year they had matching wetsuites, vests, skies, boots, and gloves in a pastel nion in a camouflage design. How cool was that.

    ahh the early 90's... before zero off... before perfect pass... before $60,000 boats that dont ski better then their 90's counterparts...

    I had some lime green trunks with black accents to match my green and black HO Extreme. Even had a lime green O'Neill Outlaw vest if I remember right.

    Warren Witherall was running 38 on a blue and pink HO, in his thong swim trunks. That is something I don't need to remember.

    I had a hot pink and green vest ('92 era) that I looked like a total dork in... well.. I still look like a dork, but at least now my attire doesn't scream it!

    Wait til you guys see Xrated's wet suit. Teal full suit right out of the 90s.
    Shut up and ski

    Teal was fantastic. The nineties made a run at turning everything either teal or fluorescent and made decent progress. Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, and Screech just called and said they want the 90's back.

    I still have my 1988 Bart's American IV barefoot suit. I still use it because it has more padding than the newer suits, and has long sleeves which is nice for some cold Pennsylvania mornings.

    The teal boats were not that bad but purple and pink accents were a bit much. Centurion lead the way with funky colors.

    I'm impressed so many can recall the 90's. I'm drawing a blank.

    I can remember the 90's no problem. It's the 70's and early 80's that I seem to draw a blank...

    I took a little skiing hiatus in the early 90s. Here's some mid 80s for you all though.

    Here is the same "Miami Vice" edition Supra my dad bought new in 87. Quite an improvement from the 14 ft VIP runabout w/ 85 HP Johnson I grew up with. He ended up trading this one in for an even more teal 90 model that he still has. I voted for black at the dealership not knowing he had already purchased the teal and raspberry one. Good times in both of them.
  • usaski1usaski1 Posts: 749 Crazy Baller
    I never see new teal boats anymore.. I assume they are still made.. but yeah, that's a throwback color from the late 80's / early 90's... Anyone got any pics of a recent boat in teal?

    Knew a guy with a '95 or '96 MC 205 that was teal and white. That's about as recent a boat with teal as I've seen.

    @ east tx skier if that pic was black & white it would pass for the 50's 60's era!

    funny that jobes bindings nowadays look almost the same minus the bright pink and yellow. speaking of which anyone been on these or any of jobes products lately I know someone on here posted a link to there american website/online store awhile back

    That was the first time I ever got up on a slalom ski. It took 3 days, an empty boat, a patient driver, a flat bottom wooden cypress gardens slalom ski with a huge metal fin, and that two handled rope to do it. I had to work so hard to get up that first time that I rarely have trouble getting up anymore. Those shorts scream 1964. That picture is about 1984 if I recall correctly.

    I fondly remember 1990, I met this girl, beautiful beyond words, a body that wouldn't stop, very attractive smile, fun like you know what I mean, but crazy as a loon (and not in a good way!) that relationship lasted about a month because I didn't want to take her to meet my parents around the holidays.
