  • Safety Tips For Waterskiing

    It appears that we're going to have to review our safety rules for the ski club...

    East Tx Skier - you should play special attention to this as it could affect your club too

    You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...

        Can't wait to see you run the course at planing speed (26mph?), with a bright orange CGA vest, on a 75' rope with 3 people on board...one with a big red flag! Oh, and you must do the hand signals!

          JD - I'm going to hook up two 15' off ropes end to end and have you try the course on a 120 ft rope...

          I would be SHOCKED if there was anyone on this forum that could run the slalom course on that long arsed rope... Kyle only ran 2 buoys IIRC when I had him try it... I wish we had it on film, it was drink spewing funny...

            "Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

                      I thought after you drank the beer you were supposed to set the perfectpass to 20 MPH and play dodgeball with kyle/mark skiing standing upright on a kneeboard...?
