Re: [Hydrofoil] hrdrofoil with jet ski ??????
- You don't need a tower to do air gainers. Just cut out as far as you can, build up as much speed as you can and go for it. Work on doing it as a dismount first. It helps to grab the underside of your knees before you start the trick. This will keep you from opening up and give you a smooth rotation. Smooth rotation is key to ride them away.Good luck and keep up posted!StilleymanSterling, Va.

Subject: RE: [Hydrofoil] hrdrofoil with jet ski ??????I learned to foil behind a 14? Sea Ray Jet Boat??.It was slow getting up out of the hole but did an alright job pulling. Jet boats or jet skis are very hard to keep a constant speed going because they are very sensitive to weight changes in the boat or changes such as the skier pulling hard on the rope. Also, there is no tracking whatsoever. I could pull my boat out sideways and basically stop it if I pulled hard on the rope while foiling or wakeboarding. Thank god this year I got rid of that boat and got a Supra. Now if New Dimension would finish my tower and ship it to me so I can start practicing inverts and hopefully actually land one!!!PS. I was at the aquatennial to watch the Pro Hydrofoil Tour and you guys are incredible!!! I have seen some videos online, but never watched anyone good in person. It was awesome!!! ??Thanks MJ for turning me to this discussion board.Also, if there is anyone in the Buffalo, MN area that wants a foiling partner let me know. I try to make it out at least a few times a week.Thanks,CharlieBuffalo, MNOriginal Message-----

Subject: Re: [Hydrofoil] hrdrofoil with jet ski ??????One day when I was hard up for a ride, I rode my Sky Ski behind a 12-foot aluminum boat with a 40 hp outboard that had tiller steering on the engine (NO steering wheel).It was very slow getting up, but once I got up it was able to pull me at around 15-16 mph. When I was cutting out to the sides, I was pulling the boat sideways...;>)Steve----- Original Message -----From: STEVEN BLACKSent: Wednesday, July 27, 2005 7:39 AMSubject: RE: [Hydrofoil] hrdrofoil with jet ski ??????I learned behind a pontoon. It works great, the rope placement is already
higher and the top speed of ours was 16 mph. I weigh around 215 and it
pulled me up fine.SB

Biggest air front flip and most unique one I have ever seen by Mr. Jake Bradley. Thanks to all that put in a ton of work in such a short period of time.
