Barefoot Worlds are going on right now in New Zealand. The best of best are over there tricking, slaloming and jumping. KSO is trying to defend is title.
I wrote about their attempt last year (someone from Tasmanina even stopped by in December 2008 to let me know about this upcoming attempt on Jan 31st.) Well they are going to try it again. The Horsehead Water Ski Club in Tasmania is going to try to set a record. Don’t know where that’s at? Neither did I, so enter Google Maps, and you find out it’s here…
I the show skiing world, we’ve seen barefooters pull front flips, but in the video below we have a guy doing a helicopter pulling a front flip… very nice.
The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.
No, this isn’t water skiing related, but it is a relatively new Christmas. This dates back all the to 2005 when Carson Williams put together this little light show for his neighborhood. I’m not sure if it was that year or next, but Miller picked it up for their holiday beer advertising. Then the following year they tried to create their own, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the original.
I just finished posting Mad-City’s National Recap over on the Mad-City website. Once again, it features a highlight clip. Here’s the link. If you don’t want to read the whole recap and just want to see the video, here it is…
For those of you that think that doing these crazy tricks on skis, or your barefeet, or hitting the ramp is easy, just watch this video. It features skiers from a professional ski show trying out the new stuff in their spare time and this video shows all the crashes these people go through to land that big stunt in the ski show.
One thing you just don’t see very much is water skiing at night. It’s just not allowed in most places. Tommy Bartlett’s in the Dells would do night ski shows, but in the heart of summer, it just doesn’t get very dark until very late, so it usally wasn’t done in the full dark very often.
I’ve just posted Mad-City State Highlight Clip online. You have a couple options to view it…
- First option is to go to the team’s website where there is a state recap online, with a brief recap of the whole weekend, including the video. Here’s the link for that.
- Next option to start searching YouTube, but that isn’t always easy to find what you want.
- Third option, is to just stay right here, because I’ve posted the video below.
Well, it has finally come to pass. Paul O’Conner of Mad-City is no longer the sole person doing 720’s in the show ski world. We have a couple more people to add to the role call now.
