Hey everyone. I haven't posted here much, but I do a lot of lurking.
Anyway, I'll be going to Turks and Caicos from Feb 17th-24th and was wondering if you guys know of anyone who can take me for a ski or two (or more!).
The only one I've found so far is http://www.nautiquesports.com
The only problem is they charge $300 for an hour. It would be just me, and I can only ski so much in one hour. If I have to drop $300, it's definitely not worth bringing my ski with me.
Thanks in advance!
Well, I've emailed them to see just how it works. I haven't been in the water since September/October. I'd need a few days in between skis, and could probably only ski for something like 30 minutes a day.
Alright, so I finally heard back from them.
They will not split up time, but they are starting a program where skiers (who don't know each other) can come together and split the cost ($300). This will run every Wednesday and Sunday.
I guess that the way it will work is the more skiers that sign up, the cheaper it will be.
Where is this place? Oddly enough I didn't see anything on the web site!? (Turtle cove?)
Wade, what kind of vid. cam. set up is Billy Susi using? -that would be some cool stuff for PSC! (almost as Cool as an overhead view of a full pass!!!)
Ya the vid cam is cool. There's a Malibu ad with Nick Parsons that uses the same device (it's photoshopped out so u cant c it) It adds about 30 pounds, not sure how well it would do for training. But definitely cool!
Ya, I wouldn't want to try to Train with that contraption lurking over my shoulder! -However, I wouldn't mind watching you go throught the course at some different speeds and line lengths! (might be another great training perspective...)
p.s. where is this Turtle Cove place???? ( I wouldn't know if it's on the FL. coastline, the Keys or somewhere in the Carribean...)
The wife and I will be in Turks & Caicos next week.
Where exactly will you be when your @ Turk & Caicos? Noone has replied to my last TWO requests for the actual location of this place!!!?????
Turks & Caicos is a chain of islands in the Caribbean! "Water Ski" did a nice story on skiing there in the July '09 issue!
I've only been to the Caribbean on Cruise ships. Maybe some day the 'ol economy will get a tad better and we'll get back down that way and check it out!
This is a very late posting but for anyone interested in skiing in Turks and Caicos - it is beautiful. The pics in Waterski Mag last July 2009 ( i think) are very true....I didn't get to ski with the dolphin or even see the crazy thing..but it was truly a great experience. Doug the owner was great. So was his staff. Pricey for an hour but I hear they have started a share program. There is no course but lots of areas for free skiing - you can't believe what you are skiing beside - white sand beaches and the bluest/teal coloured water I've ever seen. The island is very small. Turtle Cove is just one area they boat out of - most of the skiing is done between the north islands so very calm mostly every day. I have a ton of pics if anyone is interested.
Club med Cancun and ski for free. It's included as is all food, drinks entertainment etc. Great kid's club and for the teenagers as well.
Course is a bit "out" good for 15-32 off. You can try 35 off but be prepared for surprises!! George Athans (former World Champ) skis down there.
Warm salt water - tough on gear.
GPS informs the driver of speed - manual throttle. Decent 98 MC and Moomba boats. Bring your own handle, jacket, rope etc.
