Hey so im doing mammoth's pond skim this weekend. I've never tried the pond skim nor water skied (successfully). They really limit how fast one can go and also the pond is 110ft long. Just wanted to hear some suggestions, costume ideas, experiences from it, or anything else relating to it.
To continue with this, don't try to carve etc, unless you're planning on eating shit- which wouldn't be so bad either in a pond skimming event. Keep some weight on your heels and keep moving forward if you want a chance of making it to the end.
one piece suits, bright clothing, old goggles if you can, be creative. OHH and for me this year it was a dry suit. MY mountain was retarded and instead of moving it to the next weekend when it was 50 and sunny they had it when it was 15 and snowing.
Two words would be pow fun, fun pow...fun pow, FUNPOW-Pettit
Guaranteed success every time if you use K2 Pontoons.

i tried mine switch once. but the stupid pond was after a corner and a didnt carve hard enough on my second attempt (going way too fast, had no downhill edge).. flew out the side and landed on the crowd :P first attempt a made it right to the end, then lost speed.
