I am running a ski show this weekend at the Beaver County River Regatta up here is Pittsburgh, PA and we always come up with stupid ideas to amuse the crowd (see pictures below).

What do you guys think about doubling with a sky skier? Has anyone ever done this before? Am I just crazy for thinking this is a good idea...?

I wouldn't let him jump over you.

I think that is the plan (but I will be 5 feet in)

He is pretty good so I trust him.

Thanks Paul! How's Aspen and Bailey?

Nintzel says something is sketchy..? I might be in for trouble.

Also, I will be tweeting the whole weekends activities at http://twitter.com/WakeboardPGH
There is 15 of us with 3 boats for this ski show. It should be interesting.

On a side note. My Global Warming Blue Ray disk just arrived in the mail. STOKED!

I would definitely let him ride and jump going the opposite direction, over... I may do this with someone that was really skilled granted I would talk to the guy thouroughly beforehand on how important it is for him to clear me (even thought I'm sure he already understands)... and I would never let him jump the wake heading towards me... anyone could land a lil wrong and come fly towards you. Just be careful and have fun

Hey Kyle....greetings from NJ!

You should be 10 feet in, a little more cushion. The crowd can't tell when the ropes are not equal so they'll be impressed anyway. If the foiler is Chip, he's awesome!

Have fun!

He cleared me with no problem. He was already coming down in the picture below.
