I spend 1000's on a ski. Thats right some of you know, but I ordered a new slalom ski this spring and I finally got it today. They messed up on the bindings, but they are fixing it, they put a rear toe plate on it instead of a second binding. I haven't payed anything for it yet, because I need to ride it to see how I like it. Here are some pics:

Alright, here is our boat. We bought it last spring.. I was too lazy to take the whole cover off so you get what you get.

**EDIT** First post has some more pics of the boat.

Matt, Im not even going to answer your question... :p

Yeah, D it kinda sucks, but it will get fixed soon and it is ok, because I can still use the ski. For the rear wrap to come in, it could be a week, two weeks, or three weeks. Who knows. Should be faster then the ski because they produce more of the bindings then the skis.

I got two words for you...

Sonny

Bono

and there's no difference in breaking one's neck hitting a tree or letting go of the tow rope and hitting the water

It's funny because it's not even two ski's. As Matt pointed out LOL. I'd rather spend 1000 on a pair, than on one, haha. So why one? Out of curiousity, I haven't explored the world of water slalom.

Because, with two skis, you can't physically ski the slalom course at the levels you can ski at with one. Here are some examples.

How hard is it to get the timing right for those buoys...I mean it looks like if your off on your turn for a second youd miss the little red ones

Good choice on the brand name there :D

Timing is very important, it is all set up by your pull out and entry into the gates, which you have to go through at the begining and end of the course, and they are inline w/ the boat gates.
