    Kentramz is friend and old neighbor. A few years back, he invites the wife and I to join their group of friends for annual Big Lake trip. He and Parn introduce us to wakeboarding, wakeskate, foiling, etc. We pick up wakeboarding and do that for a bit. Foiling looks hard and is expensive. Then one day they call and tell me they'll have a boat ready when I'm off graveyard because they need a 3rd for a fall lake run on foil. I learn to ride in a couple trips before winter hits. My wife thinks it looks fun and is tired of going to chiropractor after wakeboarding. They tell us switch to foiling and you'll never go back. A month or so ago Kent and Shane teach her to foil. First successful pull and she comes out of the crash laughing and says, "We're getting one of these!" Kent finds used Sky Ski on here from Lonnie at Cinch. We buy it. Lonnie hooks us up with some good deals on Cinch stuff, and here we are. Just got back from week plus camping trip with same group. Wife's wakeboard stayed home, mine sat on shore the whole time! Conversion complete!

    I let you drive it around in your foil rack. I even let you cram your feet into the bindings. You'd like it more if you had less manly feet!
