Default Trick Waterski Opinions

I am thinking of getting my boys a set of trick water skis and interested in other's opinions on them. Are they fun to use or just a waste of money. My sons like to waterski on 2 skis right now. Probably ready to move to one but I think these shorter skis look more fun. Anyone have good or bad reviews on these types of skis? Thank you.

If they like water-skiing I don't think it would be a bad investment. I know for myself the more things I had to try behind the boat the better when I was younger the variety keeps it interesting.

In short don't look at this as something taking the place of them learn to Slalom ski, but rather another avenue, for them to try to keep the interest, and learning curve fully engaged.

Thats why wake boarding and knee boarding, have had such a huge following. Because no mater how good you are, there is always some new trick to try and attempt.

...believe the salvation army store in laconia has some waterskis at the usual low salvation prices?

...etecetera shoppe in meredith, a very high priced consignment store, also gets waterskis, too?

I had a pair and at first it felt like trying to roller skate on on skates that had swivel casters for wheels. It takes a little getting used to because of no fins on the skies. Remember the boat speed will need to be slower...
