    We started with 9, unfortunately 2 feel off early. We rode the entire length of the lake and ended with three riders Chad Sutherland, Joey Woodward and ME! Yes a chic!!!

    I had to remove the music so this could be viewed via phone and ipads. Enjoy!

    We hope to turn this number to 12 at the Apache Lake Showdown this October 3-6. Do you want to be one of the 12 riders to make history????

    You better do 17 to make history.

    Careful out there too. The consequences are ugly if you have anyone out there jackin around.

    Can you tell me where the synchronized jump is? It is sort of a long video after the first 90 seconds.

    We did 15 at the Canadian Fly-In at Crane Lake near Edmonton back in 1999 using a Malibu v-drive (VLX or LSV I don't recall).

    Then we got 30 up behind behind a 100' long ferry on Lake Washington in 2000. But we lost 14 riders doing the full mile to qualify for Guinness Book. GB was there for a 100 skier attempt, which failed. I arranged for the foil riders to shag ropes for the skier attempt. That was the first time I met guys like Fern & Brett E.

    We built extensive booms on both boats for these attempts. Theres no way I'd trust a standard tower to do this.









    Only had 8 here.... in early 1999. Behind the "new" MC X-Star which was a direct drive back then.



    The crash with 14 riders made us realize how bad it could be if you don't have the right riders & gear.
