Jaimee Bull is one of the most promising new skiers on the horizon. I don't say that lightly. Yes, she is the current Jr Masters Slalom Champion, and yes, she does hold the Canadian Jr National Record with 3 @ 39.5 off (10.75m). And yes, she is just barely 17 yrs old.
However, I use the word promising for a different reason than you would think. What impresses me is that she doesn't think, act or react like a 17 yr old with a lot of talent. She is humble, grateful, dedicated, passionate, smart....basically she is a role model. She is exactly what we would hope a great skier would be.
I have been working with her on ski technique/coaching since March, and will tell you that she has a bright future ahead of her. Not because she is a so good on a water ski, but because she is already so good at life. She pays attention, and she pays respect..
So even though this was just a quick podcast this week, I want you all to pay attention, and take notes....I will have Jaimee back on again, and I would like you all to send me questions you'd like her to answer.
Enjoy this one, and also let me know who else you'd like to see on here as a guest.
Thanks for tuning in!!
Undoubtedly you have seen Tony Klarich before...probably riding a Coleman Cooler behind a boat...or front flipping a slalom ski. He has been thru it all....he was around for a majority of the significant innovations of the past 35 years in towed water sports:
-the invention of the kneeboard
-the invention of the tall pylon (skylon)
-the invention of hydrofoiling
-the emergence of hot dog skiing
The list goes on, and so does Tony...he's 52 and still crushing it on the water, on anything he can get his hands on.
Tony has also been a part of HO Skis for over 30 years, and claims the original HO Freeride is the best piece of fiberglass ever invented!
If you haven't seen the FlowPointTV episode we did with him a couple years ago, check it out HERE - "A Water Skiers Life"
And check out this podcast to hear what he's up to now, and some of the cool ideas he has for getting younger kids fired up about riding behind the boat!
