Default 125 foot towups!!!!!!!!

Billy talked me into tying two ski ropes together and towing up at egmont behind his jetski. Glad he did!!!!!! unbelieveably awesome views from that high!!
we measured the rope in my front yard when we got back. 125 feet. next week we add one more to get to 200 feet.
PS.... don't try this unless...... just don't

Thanks Tom. I'll call ya next time we go.
Chris Moore has volunteered his helmet POV cam. It would be cool to have the helmet cam, someone on a boat videotaping, and someone taping from shore. Then we could cut all three points of view into a cool video.

I don't suppose any kind of injury or anything could happen from falling 200 feet out of the sky???

LOL! :shock:

Does happy velocity begin at 50 or 200 feet or in 1 or 10 feet of water? LOL!!!


:lol: :shock:
