You do need to have compatible HO combo skis b/c they attach to the top of the back of each ski. Doubt they would work on other brands unless the thru-bolt pattern for the rear fins is standard among brands.
@waterwing I’m definitely blessed to have access 15 min away, and partners in crime who keep calling.
A network of skiers is something I’ve been cultivating since 1997. The group has changed some over 24 yrs (mostly smaller) but it’s not a solo sport. It takes me a dozen times skiing each spring to get beyond the pain of restarting the season, another dozen times before I’m at full strength. Then skiing a couple times a week minimum to not be slipping backwards.
I'm with you on the surf wake. Drives me crazy to be relaxing on the hook and then almost thrown out of my boat when one comes by. No stereotype intended, but on our small private access lake frequently the younger set doesn't understand how close they are to others when they're going by. There is literally never law enforcement on the lake, so it can feel like a zoo sometimes.
