Get your Ski Shined Up - Juiy Fruit!

"Shine it up!" means lets get ready to ski. It's a reference to the old Juicy Fruit commercial, i.e. "Get your ski shined up, grab a stick of Juicy Fruit, the taste is gonna move ya ...."

Any one remember this!!!   I do and I had never skied before in my life nor did I know what it was about or know anyone who owned a boat...  Now I do and this is great!!!

Check this video out...

I remember that commercial well!  It made me want to learn how to barefoot just so I could do that tumble roll.  I had many a hard crashes trying to teach myself to barefoot before I finally gave up.

Re: Get your Ski Shined Up - Juiy Fruit!

I agree with Garn,  couple years ago i got decent with barefooting with a padded suit, i could do the tumble turn on occasion, but ultimately i gave it up too.  It just seemed like unless all i wanted to do was glide i would end up in a painful crash.   i guess more power to the barefooters cuz they're a lot tougher than i am.

Re: Get your Ski Shined Up - Juiy Fruit!

Funny when I saw the commercial again I remember how fun a tumble turn is... But I for sure had a fully padded suit!!!  I am not sure if I completed one long line or not but many with my handle off the boom:0)  Too much fun!  Yes the crashes were tuff~

Check out the counter rotation of the hips at 13 seconds. Old School technique I think?

Mark, thanks for the offer.  But I am 50 years old. Granted, I'm the envy of every guy here and all your wives want me. But still, the idea of those hard crashes just doesn't do it for me anymore.

Re: Get your Ski Shined Up - Juiy Fruit!

I learned to barefoot all because of the tumble turns. They looked so much fun when my husband did it, I got hooked:o)
Yes, falls are tough, couple of years ago I bruised my eye balls......
Proper gear a must always!

Re: Get your Ski Shined Up - Juiy Fruit!

One of the funnest things i used to do in college was take a group of newbies out and show them how to barefoot off the boom.   The funny part as most of you know is once you've done it its so easy to do.  so i would just slide out the end of the boom, foot for a minute and crawl back into the boat to give everyone some confidence to go try it themselves,  but without fail almost everytime out somebody would eat it, lose their shorts, faceplant or do something that had us rolling on the floor laughing.  that was some good times

i try to just stick to skiing these days
