Did the trainer handle help the last time you got up? I couldn’t tell from your story.

Just to be clear, the ski goes inside the triangle and NOT up close to the handle. I had someone do that by accident. Bad idea.

Yep, I got that. Nice illustration. I admit when I first looked at the products, I didn't see where the ski went.

That makes more sense.

Yes, we've tried that a couple times. It seems way more comfortable to me to have a 'running start' in the water.
