A few weeks ago I posted that I tried water skiing, but couldnt get all the way up. I tried again yesterday & actually figured out how to stand up. I wasnt up for more than 30 seconds, but I was actually up & leaning back. I was so hyped up ALL day long & last night. My husband wasnt with me, but my sister & daughter were. It was an GREAT feeling. I will try again before summers out to see if I can stay up longer, but I am happy with being able to stand. I was yelling & cheering in the water & I am sure everyone on the lake thought I was nuts, but who cares! I did it! I did it! I did it!

Good job melissa, I love to water skii. I remember the first summer I tried and I was about 10 or so. NOBODY told me to let go of the rope when I fell, and had it been discussed before it would have been common sense but in the middle of bumping and flying around in the water, it didn't occur to me in th moment to, HELLO LET GO!!!!!!!!!! lol. I was so mad about it at the time but now looking back, it is really funny.I am glad you had a good time.

Julie,I too learned at 10 and like you no one told me to let go in the event that I went under. So, the first try I didn't make it all the way up and ended up skiing under water. It took a while before it dawned on me to let go<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif" border="0"> Now, I'll give you that letting go when being dragged under water seems fairly obvious but doesn't it also seem fairly obvious to stop the boat <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border="0">
