Water skiing lesson 2

Today i went to do some water skiing again. The weather was a bit rainy in the morning and i was making up my mind on whether do go or not… finally after half an hour i saw that the sun was coming out again so i decided to go. 🙂

First on the list the mentoring lesson before going in water, making sure everything is fixed up properly 😀

I am planning to go tommorow if there is not much wind, i’ll be able to do some windsurfing or hobbie cat. Till then hold I’ll try to hold on to my ski 😀

Nautical Sport today

So today, i planned to go windsurfing, but unfortunately… there was no one doing windsurf and i couldn’t go all alone since it was really windy 🙁

Fortunately for me i met one of my cousin that works at the boat house and he told me if i wanted to do some water skiing and i jumped in 😉 here is the only picture that i could get… pfff my friend did know how to use the camera and only took this picture that’s pretty sad… 🙁 but i am going again next week… so i’ll try go get some better picture.

Me Water Skiing

It’s really hard… i had hard time on this one and fell so many times…. 😀

After having falling for about 4 times and unable/too exhausted to hold the rope again… i went back on the beach and wanted to do some other stuff… then my eye when on the hobbie cat laying on the beach, so i went on my first lesson and it went well really well, i mean i did not fall in the water and the boat did not sink 😉

More updates coming next weekend… 😉 since i’ll be going both on Saturday and on Sunday…
