Anyone have a barefoot boom that they want to sell to one of the waterskiing/barefooting suckas I work with? He's got a '97 Malibu Response.

Shoot me an email if you've got one.

Maybe I should suggest he gets a tower instead and picks up a real sport.

I do both and let me say that anyone can board. I have tried to teach several people over the years to barefoot (mostly without a boom) and footing can kick the crap out of you. That why I like boarding. Much easier on the body. Not always, but most of the time.

yep you know how when you fall wakebaording and your board catches an edge then you smack your face? Try that at 40 mph then will talk if you still can

Boarding is awesome don't get me wrong, but not many can "walk on water"

Have your buddy got to they have used stuff on there.

Whatever guys..... I learned how to barefoot and ski way before I learned to wakeboard. I havn't footed in a few years, but I bet I still could. Digging a toe at 40 is nothing like getting lit up hooking an edge backward landing out in the flats. When you dig a toe you don't have anything attached to you to make you stop....instantly, like a board does. Anyway, for what its worth, I doubt I'll ever foot or ski again.

Evidently you have never taken a backwards barefooting fall

I mostly barefoot but also enjoy wakeboarding, skiing, wakesurfing and kneeboarding etc its all fun

if you have a choice, get a BI boom. they're the best on the market. (i used to rep a different company that builds booms)
