You might as well get some snowboarding in as well.

It's funny, but the slalom guy in the video skis as poorly as I do.  I expected to see some genuine get-your-shoulders-wet impressive skiing.

But no matter how you ski the course, go have a blast!

I'm pretty sure that was Eddie Roberts.

This is a pretty good interview for anyone interested in a little PacNW waterski history.  You can thank Herb and Eddie for modern waterski bindings and the adjustable fin.

Radar is cool. What’s crazy is you would never know it’s there. Little hidden gem in what is now a big residential area and thanks to Microsoft that land is now worth insane $$$. 

If weather is nice Sunday, shoot me a pm and I can get you out surfing!

Thanks for the offer! Unfortunately I have to head home Sat night for Sunday commitments.

You were definitely here on the right day. It was warm and sunny yesterday, and dumping rain today. Wish I had gone out yesterday.

I’ve never been to Radar, but my daughter has been there several times. She and her husband looked into having their wedding there, or going there for the honeymoon.

Managed 4 on the yellow loop legit. 4.5 cheating the gates. Happy with that! What an amazing site. 

That’s awesome @UWSkier!!  I would love to ski there.

It was super fun.  I want to get into green next time.  I was in both passes at 4 ball and can definitely get through yellow with reps and some video.  I need to find a course...  :)

@UWSkier - cool.  There are several courses in your area, at least when I was out there several years ago.  San Tan Estates just south of where the old GM Proving Grounds or Williams airfield, another one east of there that ASU uses for team practice, also one off the Superstition Fwy (CRS happening on the names...).  I would go to Ball of Spray and ask, you'll get feedback on the particulars, Google Earth also has a ski course map, Horton could guide you.  Sounds to me like the addiction is kicking in, you will have several 'SA' friends:-)

Oh, I know where they are here. Researched that before I moved out here. :) I'm 5 mins from Santan but getting access to that one is tough. I may start skiing with ASU but the water at Firebird destroys equipment and smells like jet fuel from all the boat racing that goes on there.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.  That sounds like a bad-a** ski site.
