    Are you daft? Just recently married? Go directly to the doghouse. Snuggle up with fido. No soup for you!!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    I think it was the driver.

    That is not a fail. That is golden entertainment!

    Who failed is whoever thought that was a good color of a 200

    What @Horton said on that color (and I hate to be negative). I was so aw struck on the back of the boat I didn't even know there was a skier until they did that stunt double move. Can we see a pic of the exterior?
  • tfriesstfriess Posts: 401 Baller
    she mustve saw the boat at the bouy, instantly became blinded, then went OTF
    Can I just ski 24/7?
  • ZmanZman Posts: 1,594 Mega Baller
    Gotta give her credit though. I don't know too many women who have a dry suit, much less actually use one. Def bad ass! Hope she recovered OK from that high speed swan dive. And, I shouldn't say too much about the boat color...25 years ago that was just one of several bright colors in my Eagle barefoot suit.

    @aswinter05 - like the green as well. Definitely sweet that your wife is skiing so early - in a dry as well. I know my wife wouldn't do that!!! What a good moment to capture on film though....classic!

    love the green great colour mad stack she stayed in the ski to . your lucky your wife skies with you
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    Geesh! You guys are harsh. I'm glad I didn't buy the boat for you. Actually, I'm humbled by your opinions. My opinion... my boat is better than yours :)

    @OB , the backseat is out and stored at home. I think the doghouse makes it appear like the back seat is there in the video. By the way, I need some lesson's up here. The water temp is close to 60. Skied with a fellow that tuffed it out in a shorty yesterday. Did Sims send you pictures of his new 200 yet?

    @allycat , I'm very lucky to have my wife ski with me. She's a competitor and I'm quite confident she's on track to being a better skier than me.

    one of the moomba boats this year was green. It looks seriously cool in person with the new graphics. It's now named kermit.

    @aswinter05 your right that is badass that your wife is out there tearing it up with you. In a dry suit too!

    My wife did the same thing two years ago and ended up with a trip to the ER because she was on repeat every 90 seconds. It was quite the concusion.

    I dig your boat too!
  • Nick SullivanNick Sullivan Posts: 676 Baller
    @aswinter05 Hey I just saw your in Indy, I'll be in Greenwood several times this summer for work. Mind if I get a ski ride from you while I'm in town?
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    @Sully , Sure man. Just make sure you have USAWS membership and I'll let you use one of my guest passes at the lake sometime. Send me a message when you'll be around and we'll try to work something out.
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    @OB Tom is probably right about the water temp. His fancy Team Edition probably has the temperature gauge on it unlike mine.
  • ctsmithctsmith Posts: 281 Baller
    aswinter05, fess up. I saw the occupation survey, you are a CPA, you are cheap. You bought the boat because it was a good deal.....and you are color blind.
  • Jody_SealJody_Seal Posts: 2,914 Mega Baller
    Clint that was Harsh!! Those are the kind of comments you make to a lawyer! Oh! I forgot you are a CPA !!!

    I like the Green boat!

    My wife is no slouch either. Was out in a drysuit a week or so ago, water 49, air 50. No OTF thankfully. Tough lady. And she can totally kick my butt snow skiing. (And pretty much almost all the guys on the mountain for that matter).
  • SkiJaySkiJay Posts: 2,314 Mega Baller
    @aswinter05 Yikes! That's a hard hit for anyone to take this early in the season, never mind gender! I hope she came back smiling. My wife quit skiing a couple of years ago after a similar fall. ... Your ski should be your dance partner, not a wrestling opponent
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    @SkiJay , she's a trooper. She gave the thumbs-up a few seconds after surfacing.
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller

  • crashmancrashman Posts: 722 Crazy Baller
    Yikes- hope she's ok. I was out for a year with a one in one out ankle injury with a fall like that back in my open water days

    Kudos to your bride! I too am fortunate to have badass wife who took to skiing. Fwiw, I dig your boat!

    Thinking @aswinter may be almost Panda Worthy after spotting one of his other videos.....

  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    @Phil2360 good find. That video isn't of me. There is a tubing video of me in my YouTube archive but that is not the one. And yes it would be Panda worthy.

    @aswinter05 - l was using my new phone and accidently hit the off topic button. My apologies. Is there a way to undo it?
  • aswinter05aswinter05 Posts: 363 Baller
    @Marco No worries. Message Horton and maybe he can take care of it when he returns from the Pro Am. I've done it before too

    Usually pressing it again clears it.
