That's probably what I would look like if I tried that. And my name isn't "Jack" either.

I did a lot of water skiing in my younger days. I never did a dock start, but always wondered how to do one. Now I know how NOT to do one. I am thinking that maybe taking out the slack is a good step to the process? I did see this guy make one of the mistakes I made when I first learned to ski - let go of the rope!
