    Can't help but notice the bump in the road behind that boat. Nice skiing!

    That has gotten be the sweetest color boat out there. Phenomonal skiing at -41? Not sure who it is or what the ski is - but they know how to get it done!

    That's a weird rope. The black is attached the pylon, so normally that would be -39. But the next section is red (normally -43), and both the black and the red seem considerably too long.

    Visually, the skiing looks more like -38 to me, although I suppose that could be because he's making it LOOK easier than it is.

    @ozski What are you talking about? The attitude of the ski is nearly constant as if there were no wake at all. Do I misinterpret your comment?

    Is the skier high enough on the boat for that to be 41?

    @Chef23 Yeah, if that's -41 then I think I know who the skier is: Dr. Jim Michaels! :smile:

    @Than_Bogan @Chef23 I promise you that skier is very sensitive to bull shit. I would bet a case of Kilo Kai that the rope is exactly RC spec.

    Since nobody guessed this already, I'll say Nate at -41 on an H2.

    Ski's like Jaimie B once did, but the hair doesn't look right. The hair looks like Freddie W and the style is Jaimie B circa 2004

    I have another question - who is driving? That is some skill!

    At the risk of veering off-topic, am I just confused about what a rope is supposed to look like at that point? Shouldn't there be black(-39), gray(-41), red(-43)?

    And the length of the sections is:
    black: 10.75 - 10.25 = 0.5m
    grey: 10.25 - 9.75 = 0.5m
    red: 9.75 - 9.5 = 0.25m

    So the red (when present) should be an almost-goofy looking 1/4 m section, or about 10 inches.

    Unless I'm not seeing it right (which is totally possible of course), the rope in the video is not similar to the above.

    That doesn't mean anything sketchy is going on -- it only means we can't guess the rope length by relying on the colors.

    I would say if you put a RTP on the back of that ski, it is Corey Vaughn on the newest Mapple ski?

    Clue - skier put a score of something @ 43 in the books late last year.

    I was thinking Corey, but he didn't post any scores into 9.75 last year... So I'm gonna say that's Freddie.

    @Horton I have never been in the boat when someone ran 41 so my comment was an honest question. I made my comment only watching the first couple of passes. I thought given the length of the rope the skier would have been higher on the boat. I had no idea who it was when I posted my comments.
