Nice pics - still hoping to get behind the Aerotec myself as I have some truly fat skis but need a 25 first.

Would recommend putting a thirty on with forward controls for towing adults easier for less confident to tow skiers. Also means the helmsmans weight is keeping the bow down and keeping the boat more stable. I find a heavier skier doesn't pull the boat about as much as it does if you are sitting at the stern. Cheers

Well, first time skiing for a long time yesterday - conditions were wonderful, barely a breeze but NW so water was wonderful.

You can mono behind an Aerotec with a 15 - my son's first goes at dropping one and transitioning to mono (ie *proper* waterskiing!) Best go was later on in the afternoon but he cracked it.

It's to do with your smartphone being too smart! You can do stuff to fix it, but it's a pita so I would live other it!
