    I believe it is Green Lake, BC. Looks pretty shallow in the video. I'm still looking for a video posted by MC boats that had a funny "Grumpy Man Winter" dreaming of swerving in the summertime. I just can't find it.

    That is a cool vid! Now I know what to ask for from Santa! Better ability! No, a GoPro and better ability. We're still skiing here in Virginia. Yes, Virginia. Having a nuclear power plant heat the water helps... and a dry suit. Water temp 60-70. Air temp 40. Driver gets colder than the skier!

    I wish I had known that, I would have driven a little further up 95 with my ski in tow this past weekend. Ha Ha

    My folks live in Powhatan, VA and I went up to see them yesterday. I've pulled my boat and the ski course for the year. Just kills me to do it.

    These are from a friend of mine @ Coble Ski School. Toby made these of the '13 season at the School Camp here in Lillington, NC where Chris / April Coble-Eller coach. Great bunch of people.

    Here's a video of my buddy and I skiing on his lunch break last week. Riding an old Jobe that was handed down to me by my father in law. Think the ski is over 40 years old. Still teaching myself how to progress.

    Now that I can watch your skiing instead of driving lol, from what I can see is you are doing the same thing I am working on and that is staying on edge at the wake. You were flattening out which I understand makes the wake harder to cross. Other than that cool video!
