waterski mag 35th anniversary issue

Coolest issue ever! For a guy my age it brings back so many memories of aspiring to be what the top pro's were at the time in the glory day of cash prize skiing and TV coverage. Hopefully it stirs even better memories from those pro's that made it happen who are legends today. Props to Todd and waterski mag, props to the legends well covered in this issue.

    I wish I knew where to pick one up. Haven't seem an issue on the shelves in years

    @rodltg2 If you have an iPhone or iPad, download the Zinio app. You can get the digital copy there.

    It is a very good issue, it restores my faith in the magazine.

    Great issue! Those days were so great in terms of TV coverage that even in Chile we got them in the air. And there was no cable here only 4 open TV channels.

    I get it electronically but wouldn't mind a hard copy. I thought it was a great issue.

    I see a pretty, young girl on page 20. Is there something else?

    Was in my mailbox when I got home. Will be fun to actually take the time and review it.

    John Cox - impressive write-up - Congrats, John, and compliments on keeping with the program, both in fitness and skiing -- I saw you at Little Mountain last week, but didn't hear how your skiing went. I checked into John DeFendis - his website discusses how he's seen hundreds of folks do relentless aerobic exercise, with no visible benefits. What stuck with me was his statement that aerobic exercise slows your heart rate/metabolism, and the result may be weight gain. The idea of resistance training to build lean muscle makes good sense to me - I think I'll back off on my aerobic training some and focus more on resistance training. Thanks for the pointers.

    @Zman, I wish the young girl pic in the bottom of page 45 was full-res. Man, I loved those 80's swimsuits...
