INTERNATIONAL WATER SKI
Report from Vern Oberg
We are well on our way here in Piestkany Slovakia (pronounced
Pie esh cannee.) The trick eliminations are complete and it was
very fast and exciting.
For those who do not know how this event
is run, we ran thru the entire seed, 1st pass then ran everyone again
on their second pass.
Non stop continuous action except for a few
moments when the cable jambed! Results for this round are on the
cable website which you should find on www.IWSF.com.
Tomorrow is the slalom and jump eliminations and judging by the
familiarization rounds, it is going to be exciting. I witnessed some
loooong jumps and deep slalom!
For those of you who think you can run deep slalom "behind a boat",
you gotta try cable - it's a whole new ballgame dudes! I'm going
to try it manana and will give you my impression and if I make my
first pass, I'll be happy (but that aint likely!).
You mess up on
cable and you get slingshot across the water! Wild stuff!
For any further information please feel free
to contact the IWSF Headquarters.
