Kids Ski Trainer?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Does anyone have one that want to get rid of? I need to get my nieces and nephews comfortable behind the boat so they will eventually wakeboard and it seems like this is the best way. I'm looking for the one piece type that has a handle attached to it. I think they call them the gladiator ski trainer or airhead makes one called the platform trainer or ski sled.

Ryan, i do not know of any used ones for sale but i bought one of the ez ski trainers from overtons and had my 18 month old riding in no time this summer. It actually comes with a handle you hold from the boat and you can let go of it if they fall (rope is approx 50ft). the bottom part is the same structure ski in your picture and the top part is inflatable. the extra handle also works great for starting them out on the shore. Dont know how old your nieces/nephews are but if they are under 2yrs then the ez ski is the only way to go imo. hope this helps

I have the same EZ Ski training the previous guy spoke of. My kid used it twice last year before she decided she was ready for a wakeboard. I will let it go cheap if you are interested in it. PM me if interested

Same here. My 4yr old used it twice and is now on to wakeboarding. I would give it away but my 3yr old hasn't used it yet and I have a 3 week old nephew that I am trying to talk my cousin into breaking Parks' record.
