I guess you will not be seeing that again anytime soon. Quite the bizarro world.

Those are def. not snow skis. Looks like waterskiing to me. def cool though. I'd rather be the dude skiing than the dude on the sled schlepping homey around to the next wave though...

Personally, I'm a boarder...snowboarded since 1989, but have been impressed with the progression of free-style skiing over the last 5 years. Gotta say that it seems like doing it on a kite would be the way to go...as I don't see how you could get on a wave without a tow.

Aghhhhh!!!!! I'm having flash-back to Richard the crazy Russian guy! I don't ever remember if he got on on those skis?

These guys seem to have it goin-on.

Hrm..I was about to say... I hope the jetski doesn't get trashed... then it does get trashed... Wonder how it was to swim in ski boots!:!:!?

If you kite, if you snow ski and if you water ski - you can do this.
I'm very tempted to try that. :)
