I skied my first INT waterski tournament this past weekend at Kokomo Ski Club. Saturday, I started in Men’s 3 and completed 15′ off at 30 MPH. I was upgraded to Men’s 2 and completed 15′ off at 32 MPH. I was then upgraded to Men’s 1 and completed 3 @ 15′ off at 34 MPH achieving a best personal best. I was awarded first place in Men’s 1 (sharing the title with another skier who tied me). Woo Hoo! ;-)
Sunday, I competed within Men’s 1 and completed a full pass at 15′ off at 30 MPH. Then I completed 4 @ 15′ off at 32 MPH after struggling with my form. I was awarded second place. :-) There was only one Men’s kneeboarder and he (Scott) convinced me to compete against him. I rode his kneeboard behind a brand a new Super Air Nautique and needless to say I finished second. The Super Air Nautique has a huge wake!
